Has your interaction with fans, for example, at conventions, affected your work?

Of course. Listening to the impressions of those curious about or familiar with our work is always edifying, feedback as to whether what we're putting out there is landing somewhere near where we intended to land. I always pay attention to our fans; we call them loyalists.

Is there any particular incident (a letter, a meeting, a comment that stands out?

We asked a panel of thirty or so to tell us what they like to get from a story, and one young lady said she liked to read stories where the characters find out what they stand for. That's our reader.

Just recently, at our presentation at the Library of Congress (an hour-long lecture during which I read aloud from four different heroic fiction books), we took questions. A fan stood up and said that I was a wonderful narrator, and asked if I had or was planning any audiobooks. You can hear the conversation on the YouTube video, The Morrises at the Library of Congress (link: ). I answered that we were just finishing up a twenty-two hour audio-book of The Sacred Band. Since I'm very excited about my work as a narrator and voice actor, I was delighted: it's always supremely helpful when a fan tells you -- without you asking -- that you're headed in the right direction. The audiobook of The Sacred Band will be out by September, so we'll see....

Do you have a favourite author or book (or writer or film or series) that has influenced you or that you return to?
