R.M. Garino is the bestselling author of The Chaos of Souls Series and other expansive D&D inspired fantasy. With a Masters in Literature, he lives in the beautiful mountains on the east coast with the source of his inspiration: his fantastic wife, three sons, and a slew of unruly book characters.

An avid brewer of beer and strong coffee, Garino is a voracious reader, really bad dancer, an aficionado of fine cigars and single malt scotch, and is not nearly as obsessed with video games as his wife believes him to be.

I always listen to music when I write, I need that backdrop in order to create. Genre's range from metal to bluegrass, it all depends on the scene that I'm writing at the time. I actually created Spotify playlist for most of the books. You can find them on my website here: https://www.rmgarino.com/about-the-bo...

It assumes that the words exist outside of the self, perhaps floating around somewhere in the ether; that there is a magical conduit that flows from this place of words into your own mind; that for some reason unbeknownst to you, the valve has been turned off.

The scary part is that this is all happening in your head. Those voices are real. So let them talk, even if it blows your story to pieces or in a new direction. The words might not exist out there, but the story does have a life of its own.

Better yet, just write, even if it is forced and trite. That's why we rewrite and edit.(less)
