Robert J Barlow is the author of the urban fantasy The Laughing Man.
Q1: If you had to choose would you live in the mountains or by the sea and why?
By the sea, no question. I went on a writing vacation there once with some friends, and writing and drinking by the seaside gave me some of my best work to date.
Q2: Which author do you admire most and why?
Terry Pratchett. The mans sheer love of books and writing, I believe, has never been seen before and may never be seen again.
Q3: How much of you do you think is in your main character?
Personally? Not much, but a few of the readers who know me seem to disagree, so I may lack perspective.

He currently lives in Brisbane, where he writes business profiles and speeches to support his three-a-week reading habit and sizable collection of geek paraphernalia.
