Author Interview: Pete Planisek

Pete Planisek lives in Columbus, OH, where he teaches English, runs Enceladus Literary LLC, and is co-host of an entertainment podcast called Hindsight is 20-20. He received his Masters from Ohio University where he founded a student literary arts magazine called Recently Eclipsed. He has published newspaper articles and is a member of SCBWI. He served for seven years as adviser/co-adviser to a NCTE award winning student literary arts publication. Frankenstein A Life Beyond is his debut novel.

What is the name of your book? Where can we find your it?
Pete Planisek’s debut novel is Frankenstein A Life Beyond, which is the first direct sequel to Mary Shelley’s classic work. The book is available as an ebook at Enceladus, (U.S., European, and Indian markets), and Barnes &

Do you use an outline or just start writing?
I’ve had other shorter works such as screenplays and children’s books (which I’m working on getting published) that I didn’t always create a full outline for before I began writing but my natural tendency is to outline before I begin most projects. I like knowing where a story is going; it makes the journey of creating it more enjoyable when I actually sit down to write it all out. I also like to create character profiles before I really delve into writing; having a sense of who I’m writing about (at least initially because characters always evolve in some capacity during the writing process) enriches my storytelling and makes the characters more dynamic and interesting.

What genre do you write?
I consider Frankenstein A Life Beyond to be primarily literary fiction (with elements of horror, historical, science fiction, and romance all mixed). Some of my as yet unpublished works include a Children’s picture book, a Children’s easy reader, and screenplays of both the horror and comedy genres. I also write poetry.
