Share with us one of your favorite Halloween memories.
Xavier: My favorite Halloween memories were from High School and usually involved my friends and I hiding in the bushes in front of house then jumping out and scaring the kids.
What was your best Halloween costume?
Xavier: I think my best Halloween costume was when I dressed as “Revenge” inspired by the movie Titus by Julie Taymor.
Did any of that naughty inspiration come from a Halloween experience?
Xavier: I love Halloween and frightening things, and most of what I write reflects some dark aspects of October and it s celebration of things that go bump in the night, so yes I would say I have been inspired by a blend of Halloween experiences.
What is in the future works for you?
Xavier: I have the first book of a trilogy out for publication. In January my short story, “Sons of Orion” will be part of the Tricks of the Trade Anthology with Bold Strokes and my column over at examiner.com is still keeping me pretty busy.
