Wilson, the author of Robopocalypse, Robogenesis, and How to Survive a Robot Uprising, says writing about what you love is essential. “Only write what you are really interested in,” he says in a wide-ranging interview that explores what inspires and motivates him.
“I’m a dork. I’ve always loved robots… that gives it a certain veracity. There’s no faking it. If you really enjoy it, it shows. People can tell.”
Wilson wraps up by describing his latest project – an interactive story experience for an iPhone. “Human beings communicate through stories,” he says. “Any technology that pops up, we’ll use it to tell stories.”
