00:01:52 – How did you get your start in the industry?
00:03:37 – Who and/or what are some of your influences as a writer?
00:05:07 – You’ve got X-files/30 Days of Night releasing on July 14. Did you initiate the crossover with X-files or was the idea presented to you by someone else?
00:06:22 -Did X-files creator Chris Carter have any input in this series? If not, would you have liked to work with him on this project?
00:06:54 -The recent movie, “X-files: I Want to Believe” offered some closure of sorts to the series (In a post-credits scene, Mulder and Scully are seen rowing towards a tropical island). Why revisit X-files now?
00:09:29 -Besides obviously following the two main stars of the series, what other references to X-files lore can fans expect? And also what about 30 Days of Night fans?
00:10:26 -The majority of your work seems to focus on the supernatural. What is it for you personally that is appealing about the supernatural? Why horror Steve?! 😉
00:11:53 -Does the story in X-files/30 Days of Night allow for a sequel to this series?
00:12:05 -Are there any WSU characters/titles you would like to tackle? (My co-host Joe wants you to tackle Wetworks!)
00:13:09 -Joe loved your Spectre animated short which was released with the Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths Special Edition DVD. He wants to know if there are any plans to script any other animated projects?
00:14:19 -FUN QUESTION: If you could pick one supernatural creature to be, which one would you pick? Why?
