Q: What are your titles?
A: VAMPIRE KNIGHT: FORBIDDEN, BOOK OF THE AUTHENTIC and SAMUEL KNIGHTINGALE AND THE GOD INCIDENT.
VAMPIRE KNIGHT: FORBIDDEN is the latest book. It is an exciting paranormal romance between a vampire-human hybrid named Draegan and a prisoner of war princess named Adaira. I'm lovin' writing fiction again.
Q: Are all your books e-books?
A: VAMPIRE KNIGHT: FORBIDDEN, & BOOK OF THE AUTHENTIC are e-books but SAMUEL NIGHTINGALE AND THE GOD INCIDENT is a soft cover limited edition book available only through Amazon.com. Soon I'll convert it to e-book form.
Q: How long have you been writing?
A: Since I was a child. I won my first award in grade 2 for a story about a hat who was owned by a baldheaded man. It was very funny for a little kid. Since then I’ve written short stories, poetry, songs, but my first full length novel was the ‘SAMUEL’ one. Until recently my writing passions could only be part-time pleasures because of my day job.
Q: Any advice for a new writer?
A: Yes. Hang in there. Keep reading good books in the genres you like, keep rewriting and be tough skinned because this comes with lots of rejections. And always be polite to those who do not give you favorable reviews or reject your work. You never want to burn your bridges. Also check out my ‘Writer’s Resources’ page.
Q: Why do you write?
A: First, I’m not writing to get famous. I write because I have a passion for it and love it. It is simply who I am. Making a little cash at it doesn't hurt either. :)
Q: Why did you write BOOK OF THE AUTHENTIC?
A: The book was born from a very personal spiritual journey I took. At one time in my life I was a minister but found that staying within the religious walls of my religions beliefs, policies, dogmas and doctrines spiritually stifling and often hypocritical. I could no longer, in good conscience, teach to others that its ways were the true ones for humanity, as it wanted me to, so left. Still even then I wasn’t entirely sure what it was I was looking for but I did know what I was not looking for. I did a number of years of soul searching and research and eventually found 'it' and wrote about 'it' in BOOK OF THE AUTHENTIC. It was a very freeing experience. Now I just live my life.
Q: What has been the response to BOOK OF THE AUTHENTIC?
A: Interesting. ha ha Some find it refreshingly honest and love it and others get rattled.
Q: What is your hope for your new vampire book?
A: That it sells! I know readers will find it hard to put down once they start reading it. That is the way it has been with my 'test' readers. It’s a wonderfully exciting romance story so the dream is that it gets lots of love.
