  1. Tell us about your story:
    • What is the name of your book?
    • What genre is it?
      • A Thriller. But it’s also a medical drama from my point of view.
    • When and where is your tale set?
      • All the good scenes happen in Flagstaff, Arizona. But the book has several other settings
  2. Who are you?
    • What is your name?
    • Are you a fictional or historical character?
      • Fictional
    • What’s your role in the story – are you the protagonist or a supporting character?
      • I am the Coconino County Medical Examiner in Flagstaff, Arizona.
    • Are you a human, animal, alien, robot, or something completely different?
      • Human
    • Do you consider yourself to be good, bad, or indifferent?  Would others agree with this assessment – why, or why not?
      • Good
  3. What do we need to know about you?
    • What is your personal goal?  I mean, what do you ultimately want?
      • To provide loved ones and law enforcement with accurate information about how someone died.
    • What is standing in your way?  What conflict(s) do you face?
      • Everybody else.
    • Why is this goal important to you?  What’s your motivation?
      • Professional Pride.
    • If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be, and why?
      • I wish I were more socially confident. I have trouble making eye contact and speaking with people. I can get my message across, but like many on the Autism spectrum, I can be an “acquired taste.”
