James Lipton and the Actors Studio did it for fun with the actors…..Now, I’m doing it for fun with the writers.

Hold the phone!
This cannot be true.
Ryne Douglas Pearson, writer extraordinare, has never tasted strawberry ice cream? *Shudders at the thought.*
Californian Ryne, who once claimed the most fun job he’d ever had was when he worked as a plumber, married into a large Irish Catholic family. A practicing Catholic himself, Ryne is not only well known for his novels, he is also recognised in the movie industry.
Novels Cloudburst, October’s Ghost, Capitol PunishmentTop Ten, The Donzerly Light, All For One, and Confessions have confirmed his status as being a great author. But when novel Simple Simon was picked up by Hollywood and turned into the 1996 hit movie Mercury Rising, starring Bruce Willis, it opened another door for his writing.
In 2008, Ryne worked (uncredited) on scripts for Keanu Reeves movie, The Day Earth Stood Still  and Jessica Alba’s  The Eye, and in 2009, he was one of four writers who wrote the screenplay Knowing, a concept he himself created.
Although first frowned upon by the critics (what do they know?), Knowing went straight to number one at the box office. American film critic and screenwriter, Roger Ebert boasted it being one of the best sci-fi films he had ever seen. Knowing went on to make more than $180 million worldwide.
Ryne is a member of Writers Guild of America-WestScience Fiction & Fantasy Writers Of America and International Thriller Writers. When not writing or spendng time with his wife, children, and two dogs – a Doberman Shepherd and Beagle Vizsla, you can find him twittering with friends.
So what would a man, who is described by Entertainment Weekly as having a ‘sweet, disarming quality’ make of our ten questions?
