Earlier this month Amber Gregg from the blog, Judging More Than Just The Cover, did an interview with E.K.M. -- here are a few of the questions she asked (and he answered) about his writing process and about his novel, The Supremes at Earl's All-You-Can-Eat:
How do you pick names?
An insight on how you create your main characters?
How much research did you do before writing “The Supremes"?
What is the hardest thing about writing?
(And several other questions.)

In June E.K.M. gave a brief craft capsule talk at a Poets & Writers Live day-long event in Chicago. The topic of his talk was Making Up the Truth: Using Real-Life Experiences to Enrich Fiction and courtesy of P&W you can now view the video! In the brief presentation E.K.M. describes why a true event can seem awkward or unbelievable if you try to use it in your fiction writing. To enjoy Edward Kelsey Moore's talk

(Please note that the E.K.M. video was running roughly when we watched, but the audio streamed continually. Also, the file wouldn't play on the mobile devices we tried. Sorry that we cannot provide you with any technical help or answer questions if you are unable to access the video.)
