Chewing the Fat w/Kristopher Triana

CHEW ON THIS! has been nominated for a Splatterpunk Award and I have the exclusive skinny with the authors.

Author de Jour: Kristopher Triana




Nikki Noir: You’re featured in a food anthology, so let’s get this out of the way first: What’s the weirdest thing you’ve put in your mouth—I mean weirdest thing eaten ;)


Triana: Tobacco ice cream. I shit you not. I took a girl to a fancy tapas dinner, and the dessert was tobacco ice cream. It tasted like vanilla ice cream served in an full ashtray. Totally inedible. I swear the master chef was just fucking with people.

Noir: Tell us about your story in Chew on This! and what inspired it.

Triana: It's about an old man in a retirement village who becomes obsessed with a take-out delivery girl. But she had deadly intentions. I don't know what inspired it, really. Maybe I want a regular delivery girl in my life.

Noir: If you were a spice/seasoning, what would it be, elaborate if you want.

Triana: Taco seasoning because it's so awesome.


Noir: What’s the scariest real-life, food-related situation you’ve been in?


Triana: I once went to a Texas Roadhouse where a car in the parking lot exploded. Good times.

Noir: What does literary success look like to you?


Triana: Sleeping on a pile of money surrounded by many naked ladies.


Noir: If there’s one thing you want readers to know about you or the mission of your work, what would it be?


Triana: I'm just trying to get my demons out and feed them to you.

Noir: What’s your next project and where can we stalk you?

Triana: Next project is actually food related! I have a collaborative novel coming out with Ryan Harding called The Night Stockers. It is about a satanic grocery store laying siege on its rival. It's a splatterpunk black comedy. Follow me on social media! Twitter handle: koyotekris. And check out my podcast Vital Social Issues 'N Stuff with Kris and John Wayne.
