Tales from the mouth of a wolf

I recently had the opportunity to sit down with fellow blogger W. for a short interview about life and writing.

The following is an interview with Chris Nicholas, a writer/blogger from Brisbane, Australia. He has published two novels and currently working on his third. He also runs a successful website, The Renegade Press (https://therenegadepress.com/), and have contributed publications in the United States, Europe, and Australia.

W.: What makes you start writing? And how did you find inspiration for each of your pieces?

Chris Nicholas: People often ask me what it is that inspires me to write, and the truth is that I never know how to answer. There are so many things that inspire me to write; be it music, films, books, conversations, or just sporadic thoughts that surface in my mind.

  3. I’m sorry to hear about your dad.
    CongratZ on all your writing achievements, though.

  4. Actually, one of the first things I thought about when you mentioned the symbolism of wolves is that they can be quite family-oriented. The young might leave the pack to start their own sometimes, but many times the younger generations stay to help their parents and younger siblings. Sounds like you’ve had a lot of moments when you had to balance lone wolf achievements with family bonds.

    Thanks for sharing this great interview!

  5. Excellent interview and thank you for the inspiration to push through the rough stuff.

    Thanks for visiting Cancer Hits the Streets! I read this interview and loved the idea of writing as legacy. I teach my students that same thing, that words have the power to connect and to reflect what’s most important to us.

    The story about the two men at the checkout made me cry.. Kindness can go a long way.. even if my act of kindness is not reciprocated, it makes me feel good knowing that you showed someone else the good in people.

    you could look at the state of the world, all created amid vanity, greed, racial tension, lust and hate. we are, all of us humans (owners of the mentioned faulty behaviors. those notions are in the world as much as air. ruled by the ruler of the air, the ruler of everything: the devil) yea, it is not it’s (Satan) activity that created the Amazon Rain Forest fires, the little g god is too much a slacker, a slothful, lazy good for nothing. why would anyone think that before Adam and Eve an angel of light was cast out of Heaven? God did that, killed Satan, demoted, in the ranks of those angelic assistants that some have, all through the day; Angel’s pay the utmost attention to every. i can, could, would illustrate more, but it’s siX minutes past my bed-time.

  15. Thanks for your adjacent look at life. Finding a way forward with integrity. Cheers.
