Interview with James Rumpel
By: Kevin 'Myth Master' Adams

Hello to all my fans!!

Today we serve up someone special and he probably deserves it in a way, so without further ado we give you … JAMES RUMPEL.

Enjoy his torture you little heathens.

Alright Jim, spill the info for us!

James Rumpel:I retired from a 35-year career as a high school math teacher and coach (tennis and wrestling) in the spring of 2018. The administration was happy to see me go because it meant the end of a series of annoying (most likely their opinion) humorous (my opinion) e-mail being sent to the teaching staff.

In January of 2019, I decided to start trying to write a little more seriously (effort not content). I've always loved science fiction and had hundreds of weird story ideas built up over the years. I write for fun. I enjoy the process of coming up with an idea and trying to turn it into something worthwhile. I'm amazed at how many of my stories write themselves.

After writing a few stories and sharing them with a couple of close friends and my family I decided to check and see if they were anything near publishable. So, I dove into a Google search about publishing opportunities and started sending stuff in. Needless to say, I was met with a barrage of rejections (I still am) but those rejections had no effect on how much I enjoyed writing.

From February of 2019 to today, I have submitted 146 different stories a total of 846 times and been rejected 750 times. Honestly, I don't care. Submitting is just a fun last step to the process.

My other hobbies include running), camping, and board games (an addiction for everyone in my family).

I have been married to my wonderful wife for 35 years (come July). We have three grown children who all live relatively close and we get together quite often (when the world is not under lockdown).

Myth Master:A math teacher…. Time to avenge some students!! This will be fun!
