Influences include Eduardo Sacheri; Manuel Rivas; Martin Cruz Smith; Natsuo Kirino; Ryu Murakami; David Mitchell; Yuri Herrera; Raymond Chandler; Joan Aiken; Richard Matheson; Ana•s Nin; Gabriel Garc’a M‡rquez; Thomas Harris; Carson McCullers; Donna Tartt; Melvin Burgess; Truman Capote; Richard Laymon; JT LeRoy / Laura Albert; John Hersey; Philip K. Dick; and Seishō Matsumoto.

Beyond books, he's into movies, buildings, travel, and urbex. Music he likes includes Motown, The Smiths, Arthur Russell, Van Morrison, Prince, and Nina Simone. Lately, he's been listening to Devendra Banhart, Le—n Larregui, and Colter Wall.

Obreg—n is currently sailing the seas of inspiration to write the sequel to Blue Light Yokohama (forthcoming in 2018).
