The Shorty Interview with Allen Schatz

How do you imagine Twitter changing?

Honestly, it's pretty good now. Gives me chance to meet readers and others interested in writing (and Philly sports).

How do you decide what to tweet?

To share random thoughts or those inspired by news/events. Mostly to interact with other Tweeps and supporters.

Hashtag you created that you wish everyone used?

I can't say I've created any... until now! #raschatzWriting should be on everyone's hit list! :-)

What inspires you to tweet?

The chance to share and interact. It might be virtual, but it allows connections where there previously were none.

I'll be 50 this year. I am married. I have two children. I have two dogs. I live in SW PA. I am originally from and want to live again in Philly area. I've been an accountant and am a consultant but want to be a full-time writer; bills prevent that at the moment, so does not having a book deal. I love baseball and have used it as the canvas for my mysteries. I appreciate every time someone picks up one of my books. I miss playing kick-the-can.
