The Third Day of Tesseracts - An interview with Matt Moore!

Our featured author for the Third Day of Tesseracts is Matt Moore.
TT: What is your name?
MM:  Matt Moore

TT: Where are you located?
MM: My current location is Ottawa, Ontario

TT: What is the name of your story?
MM:"The Machinery of Government"

TT:What inspired you to write your story?
MM:  In disaster stories, usually we follow the "everyman" or "everywoman" since they are people we can relate to. From their POV, the people in charge are strong, decisive and getting the job done. I wanted to tell a disaster story using someone who would be in charge as a main character, but showing they are flawed, anxious and as scared as everyone else.

TT: Since this collection is about Strange Canadian Stories, what is one of the strangest things that has ever happened to you personally?

MM:After my mother passed away, I discovered short stories she had written buried in the backs of drawers and files while cleaning out her room. I had no idea she had written creatively.

TT: A strange question you would like to ask other authors?
MM:You must drop a dozen zombies into any time and place in Canadian history. Where, when and why?

TT: Thanks Matt!
