Interview with Riley Collins, Author of Escape From the Fringe

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Escape From the Fringe?

It was a few concepts and thoughts that came to me. First, I wanted to tell the story of someone who had been isolated their entire life, finally being exposed to the rest of the galaxy.

I also wanted an adventure that didn’t necessarily revolve around death and killing. I already have a military space opera that has those elements and wanted something a bit lighter. There was also an element of a father/daughter or big brother/little sister element I wanted to try.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Escape From the Fringe, what would they be?

Daiyu’s would be What’s Going On by Four Non Blondes and for Taksh it would be Somebody That I Used To Know by Gotye.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I love to read science fiction and that is also the genre I write in. However, I also love history books and historical fiction. There’s something so interesting about seeing parallels between things that happened hundreds of years ago and today.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Too many to count. A few notable ones are Sanderson’s Mistborn, Truman by David McCullough, and the rest of the Backyard Starship series by Chaney and Maggert (I’m on book five now).

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

I really enjoyed writing about how Taksh and Daiyu escape from the Triple-Deuce. I just enjoy writing action and I loved picturing everything going on as I was writing it.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

Well, I have five kids so I have found the ability to write whenever/wherever possible. I don’t need and will never have a nice quiet writing space.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

Don’t put off tomorrow what you can do today.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

I just hope they feel like they experienced the events of the book themselves and that the characters feel real to them.
