Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I sent most of my adult life in high-tech – for almost 20 years as an entrepreneur and 14 years as a venture capitalist. Four years ago I decided to retire and do what I always dreamt to do. Write books. Recently I finished my 3rd book which is due to be published on April, 2018. In all my books I invent a start-up company and then build a thriller around it.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The name of my last book is “In the wrong hands” and it deals with a very intriguing aspect of the Genetic field.
I studied this field for almost a year before I sat down to write the book. I chose to research the field because I felt that Genetics research represents the hope for the human race, but at the same time the biggest risk. And this is were the name of the book came from.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
A long period of research followed by three months of writing (10-12 hours a day).
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Robin Cook, Stephan Frey, Baldacci, Clancy and many others.
What are you working on now?
Finalizing my 3rd book and playing with some ideas for the next one.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I am bad at book promotion. I know what should be done, but I do not have the energy to do it.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Write about subjects you know intimately.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
The one I gave above.
What are you reading now?
I usually read 2-3 books in parallel. Currently, I read:
Thinking fast and slow by Daniel Kahneman
Sweet Tooth by Ian McEwan
Split second by Douglass E. Richards
What’s next for you as a writer?
I honestly don’t know. My beloved Grand daughter insists that I’ll write a book for her. And believe me. No one can resist her.
If you were going to be stranded on a desert island and allowed to take 3 or 4 books with you what books would you bring?
