Season 2, Episode 4
Ross Young is the author of two books set in Gloomwood, his name for the afterlife. Dead Heads, came out eleven years ago, with Ross’ second book, Get Ted Dead, having come out just last year. He also creates very short stories and tweets them out daily using the hashtag #vss. Lately, he’s also been publishing comics starring Beezy and Grim, two characters from his Gloomwood books. Mr. Young and I have known each other on Twitter for a while. I was delighted to have him come on the show!
Ross and I talk about his childhood. His parents moved from country to country a lot. We talk about what that was like, and what effect it had on him. We also talk about why it took Ross 11 years to have his second book ready for release.
One thing I was hoping to talk to Ross about was how to write comedy. He says how he finds comedy differs from writing other fiction. I had a blast recording this interview, check it out below!
Once again, thanks to Ross for coming onto the show! He also appeared on the Christmas Dungeons and Dragons episode! If you want to see more of Ross or his books, check out his website here. Go follow him on Twitter and Instagram!
