Goodreads asked Paul B. Spence:

What’s the best thing about being a writer?

Paul B. Spence Getting to share stories that I love with other people.

I've read authors talk about how they hate their books or their characters. I really can't understand that. Not to sound egotistical, but I love my books. I write books I want to read, and I love science fiction. I love my characters. I feel bad when something horrible happens to them in my stories, and believe me, horrible things do happen to them. But the things that happen, happen so that they can overcome them and grow as people. Without adversity, you don't develop.
