If you could co-author a book with anyone, who would you choose and why? Tough question! With anyone that pops to mind, it’s “You’re better at this; why don’t you take over” or “Get your hands out of my manuscript.” But today I’ll pick John Carpenter, the writer of so many schlocky films. He knows what makes for fun stories and gets his ideas on screen. As a writer/director he sees projects finished and in front of an audience. His experience would be invaluable. For an idea of how weird his ideas can be, go watch the low -budget movie Dark Star. Plus I’d love to see what he might have in mind for a novel.
How would you answer? Who would it be?
