Video Pitch for HE & SHE, by Wayne Clark

Watch Video Pitch for the Novel – HE & SHE, by Wayne Clark:

Get to know the writer Wayne Clark:

1. What is the theme of your story?

A man suffocating in midlife crisis becomes obsessed about discovering a way to feel alive one last time.

2. Why do people need to know about your story?

While the BDSM elements in the book are realistic and an important part of the protagonist’s search to rediscover his sexuality, he & She is not a BDSM-genre novel. Loneliness, aging, alcoholism, the feeling of being increasingly disconnected from life, those are the elements that fuel his obsession.

3. How long have you been writing stories?

On and off for decades.

4. What movie have you seen the most in your life?


5. What artists would you love to work with?

I have always been utterly amazed by what actors like John Malkovich and Dustin Hoffman can bring to their roles. I like Morgan Freeman in any role. Susan Sarandon is no slouch either. Likewise for Vanessa Redgrave. Would also like to work with Penelope Cruz and Michelle Pfeiffer.

6. How many stories have you written?

He & She is the only novel I’ve published. I’ve written several others but ended up not liking them.

7. Ideally, where would you like to be in 5 years?

I would like to have moved on as a writer. I would like to be obsessed with exploring another novel.

8. Describe your process; do you have a set routine, method for writing?

At the outset I try to write every day, seven days a week, for an hour or two as soon as I wake up. The more the story advances the more hours I tend to put in. While I always try to write first thing in the morning, as time goes by I return to the keyboard whenever the spirit moves.

9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Jazz and baseball.

10. What influenced you to enter the WILDsound Festival?

I was invited to do so by someone who happened to read the hook for my book on my profile page at the Independent Author Network.

11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Don’t wait until you have a rock-solid idea for a story. Stories are made up of bits and pieces, your observations and thoughts over time, isolated descriptions and imagined conflicts between people you may encounter. Everything you experience is fertile ground. Try to develop anything and everything. You never know what those exercises will lead to, a scene, a short story or something you find yourself being able to use years later in some other work. Don’t censor yourself. Get everything down on paper. It’s easier to chop something later than create it in the first place.

Matthew Toffolo: What is the theme of your poem?

cc: My poem, he + she, celebrates the special and beautiful love between my son and his wife.

MT: How would you like people to respond when they read or watch your poetry reading?

hope that my poem pulls up the understanding that a marriage creates a unique partnership, a unique form and that this form is now born and real in this world!

MT: Do you have a favorite poem besides your own?

I love the poetry of Emily Dickinson. I especially like her poem: Hope is the Thing with Feathers.

MT: What movie have you seen the most in your life?

cc: Chasing Mavericks. It’s a film about the amazing and inspiring surfer Jay Moriarty and his quest to surf Mavericks in Santa Cruz.

MT: Do you have a favorite writer?

cc: Emily Dickinson is my favorite writer.

MT: What influenced you to write poetry?

cc: Previously, I spent time writing songs and I see poems as an extension of that, of songs, quiet songs. I have these feelings that just come up and need to be expressed. It makes me very happy if people enjoy my work. Thank you fans!

MT: What is your favorite song?

How can a person possibly say just one song?

I totally adore My Funny Valentine, Nature Boy, and Smile.
And, of course, I’ll Be Seeing You by Billie Holiday!
