Featured Interview With Thorsten Nesch
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was born in the City of Blades, Solingen, Germany. After moving to the City of Aspirin, Leverkusen, I traveled a lot and I lived on the West coast of Canada, and now in Alberta, Canada.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
Looking back probably when the bubbles in comics all of a sudden made sense – when I could read them. That year I discovered Pulp Fiction novels, with 13y Stephen King and with 15 Mario Puzo’s The Godfather – then there was no going back. I started writing myself around that time after stopping playing with Playmobil etc.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Richard Ford & Cormac MacCarthy I read since late 80s. Charles D’Ambrosio I discovered in the 90s. I don’t have a favourite genre. For inspiration I don’t need any other input.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
“The Locomotive” – one day I had that picture one day in my head: What if a train derails next to the sea and somebody lies underneath the rubble on the ground during low tide and the water comes in … I chose a day-trader, a broker to be the main character (the modern life weight down by the past age of industrialization and threatened by the nature that creeps back on us)
Since I take research serious I learnt how to day-trade options, puts and calls myself. An amazing research and crazy to find out the top 1% have basically the right to print money this way. – For everybody else without solid information it is pure roulette.
