D: Do you have anything specific that you want to say to your readers?
SS: Just that I’m so glad I have readers! Thank you for spending time with my characters. I hope we have a long, complicated relationship!
D: Where do you do most of your writing?
SS: At a small wooden desk my father made for me in a small office with the lights off and the door shut tight.
D: Do you have any quirks that come out while you are writing?
SS: I think I’m secretly half-terrified that some psychologist will casually pick up one of my books and have a long, hard look at those quirks. “Perhaps a long rest in a relaxing countryside villa is in order, Mr. Seidel? Or these medications, maybe?”
D: What is your daily routine as a writer?
SS: When I’m trying to finish a manuscript, I write every day for about two hours when possible. I get uncomfortable missing more than one day of writing because then I risk losing momentum, and that can be a death sentence for a new manuscript, particularly a first draft. Oh, and I’ve begun to write in the evenings, after dinner. I like the open-endedness of writing in the evenings.
D: If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
SS: Of course! I never feel that a book is perfect or complete. I could edit and revise forever. But I really do like Lovesick and my characters and believe in them, so I have to stand behind it as is.
