Mark David Major
Are there any new authors that have sparked your interest and why?
MARK: I seem to be reading a lot of Swedish authors lately. I don’t know why.

What contributes to making a writer successful?
MARK: Love what you’re writing and the rest will take care of itself. If you don’t love writing, then you’re in the wrong gig.

Do you have any advice for writers?
MARK: Write what you love and the rest will take care of itself. Don’t ever underestimate the importance of editing what you write. However, ‘always cut what you love the most’ (a sentence, a scene, and such) is a surprisingly effective rule of thumb to follow.

What are your goals as a writer?
MARK: To write what I love and hope people like or love it, today, tomorrow or some point in the future even after I’m gone.

What do you do to unwind and relax?
LAYCE: I like listening to music, watching Disney films, and riding my bike.

MARK: Hanging out with dog Izzy, watching a film, indulging in guilty-pleasure TV shows. My TV schedule is as, chronologically by day: The Walking Dead/Falling Skies (Sunday); How I Met Your Mother (Monday); New Girl (Tuesday); Survivor (Wednesday); and Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team (Friday).

Do you have any specific last thoughts that you want to say to your readers?
MARK: A squeaky wheel never points north.

An Infinitesimal Abundance of Color, written by Mark David Major and beautifully illustrated by Layce Boswell, tells the simple story of a father answering his daughter’s questions at bedtime.
