20Q7A: An interview with Jamie Nash

20 Questions, 7 Answers is an interview series for writers of genre fiction. Each author receives the same batch of 20 questions, but they may only answer 7.

This week's guest is Jamie Nash.


What's your latest book, and how does it differ from your previous work?

JN: NOMAD. My other books were kids books. This one has more f-bombs (my kids books have zero) and lots of intense horror and violence. It's a bit like others were more Scooby-Doo.

Do you have any creative endeavors other than writing fiction (art, music, knitting)?

JN: Juggling. I guess that's creative. It can be.

Do you listen to music when you write, and if so, what? Is it different than what you listen to when you're not writing?

JN: No. But I watch television. Right now I'm watching Last Chance U on Netflix as I watch this.

If you could invent a new sport, what would it be like?

JN: Juggle Combat...actually this is already a game I've played.  I'd just popularize it. You juggle three clubs while trying to make the other jugglers drop. It's fun. It should be in the Olympics.  Google it. You'll see.

What's the best movie, new or old, that you've seen for the first time in the past 3 months?

JN: Midsommar.

What are your 3 favorite comic books (standalone novels or ongoing series) of all time?

JN: Dark Night Returns, Red Son, Swamp Thing.

If you could share a beverage with any fictional character, who would it be, and what would you drink?

JN: Han Solo. Blue Milk...but spiked with some Corellian liquor.
