Get to know the writer:

The story is based loosely on a thought experiment, described as a paradox, devised by Austrian physicist Erwin Schrödinger in 1935 and it deals with the consequences of procrastination.

2. What genres would you say this story is in?

Science Fiction

Twisted fun

House of the Rising Sun

6. Do you have an all-time favorite novel?

Dune

7. What motivated you to write this story?

Honestly, it was an impulse. I was thinking of the paradox and had a “What of?” moment.

8. If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be?

Isaac Newton

9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Wood working especially turning bowls on a lathe.

10. What influenced you to enter your story to get performed?
