Interview with the author
Meet Chris Stralyn, author of
This Time You Lose
1.What (or who) motivated you to start writing?
My writing career started completely by accident…literally. My family was on vacation in Florida when a wheel jumped off our van as we drove down the road. The accident and chain of events that followed made for a terribly unforgettable vacation.
A year later someone pointed out an essay contest for “The Worst Vacation Ever”. I figured our vacation definitely qualified, so I entered -- and won! That got me started writing other short stories and articles, and before I knew it I was writing a novel!
2.How many book have you written so far?
This Time You Lose is my first novel, although I’ve had numerous short stories and articles published over the years.
