Welcome to WOLF NOTES, where interview questions stray from the rest of the pack. It’s nice to know the usual stuff like where an author gets their inspiration and why they write, but sometimes we need a little fun in our lives.
Give a big wolf welcome to Stephen McGill
A young African American husband and father of 3, Stephen graduated with a Bachelor’s degree from Morgan State University. His mother, an English teacher in Baltimore City for over 30 years, introduced him to literature at an early age. He read a book to his class in kindergarten and has had a passion for reading and writing ever since. Currently, he works for the Federal Government in the IT field and is a personal trainer. He spends his free time lifting heavy objects, listening to good music, watching super hero movies and organizing his sneaker collection.
Wolf: So, Stephen, you like super hero movies. If you could have a super power, what would it be?
Stephen: I would absolutely want superhuman strength and agility. I would be able to fight off every villain there is. I would also like the ability to clone myself. That way, I can send a representative of myself to locations, events, and functions when I don’t actually want to be there.
Wolf: That could be very handy. If you had to pick a weapon, what would it be and why?
Stephen: I absolutely need a vibranium suit. It would help heighten my super powers (see above) and I could be bulletproof in the process.
Wolf: There is a door at the end of a dark, damp corridor. You hear rumbling. What do you do?
Stephen: RUN! I don’t have super powers in real life!
Wolf: The world is about to end. What is the first thing you do?
Stephen: Meet up with as many friends and family as I possibly can. That way we can all enjoy the last moments on earth together.
Wolf: Who’s world is this, anyway?
Stephen: The World Is Yours!
Wolf: What is the strangest food you’ve ever eaten?
Stephen: When I was in college, I had a dish from a Nigerian restaurant: Goat stomach. Felt like I was chewing for days!
Wolf: I’ve had goat before but never stomach. Speaking of animals, (Not the kind you eat.) do you consider yourself a cat person, or a dog person?
Stephen: I’m allergic to them and they’re too sneaky, so I don’t like cats. Dogs would be ok if they learned some sort of litterbox technique or they could be potty trained. It’s not in my job description to scoop up dog poop.
Wolf: What story are you working on now?
Stephen: Currently, I’m finishing up The Electrifying Adventures of Mr. Powers, Vol 2.
Wolf: What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
Stephen: When I’m not writing, I’m probably working out, making a playlist or listening to a podcast, or watching basketball.
