Why is writing important to you and why do you think it's an important medium for the world? To me, it's the best way for people to convey their innermost thoughts and feelings to others, and is also the best way to preserve those thoughts and feelings for future generations.

What are your tried and tested remedies to cure writer's block? Just kick yourself and do it!

What is your favorite time to write? Mornings

What's the best piece of writing advice you've ever received and would like to impart to other writers? Always write down thoughts, feelings, and inspirations as they come to you, because they are fragile and fleeting. If you delay they may evaporate and you may never capture them again.

What excites you most about being a writer in today's age? The freedom and control that a writer has over his or her own thoughts and feelings, rather than having thoughts and feelings dictated to him by outside influences and influencers.

Kevin Greer's Dove: A Redemption Story is out now with Dorrance Publishing.
