“My first dive down, I was swimming through a torpedo hole in this ship into this massive cavern that used to be an engine room. And it was like, holy smokes. The reality of it, I mean, it was a ghost town, you know, and that in itself was haunting.” (02:26)

“My Journey as a Project Manager”: “I realized it’s like, oh, wait, I’m a project manager. I can do this.” (05:49)

“Mine wasn’t really an outline in this one. I have another book that I’ve almost completely outlined and that outlining is working well for that one. But for this first one, it was an evolution of a process and the evolution of me turning into a writer.” (08:49)
