Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am Jonathan Myers, I’m a working man. I drive trucks you know the ones with 18 wheels. I am an independent author. I publish through create space. I am a family man. I have been married to my beloved wife for 16 years. I love children. I love looking at the wonder and amazement in their eyes. I started and run a non profit organization that raises funds for homeless veterans and disadvantaged children. I am sort of a history buff. I love history especially on the cold war and the USSR.
I have written two books that are published and listed on Amazon The Unfinished volume 1 and The Unfinished The Finishing volume 2. I love interacting with my readers. I love the messages they send me. I do answer all of them myself.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My latest book is The Unfinished volume 2 The Finishing. I was inspired by God to write. I wrote this one to let everyone see that families have problems. Love for one another is the glue that holds the family together. My readers asked for this one. I always put my readers first when I write. I want my readers to always want more. I want my readers to be able to relate to my books and the characters.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I always write with the TV on in the background. I have what they call Tinnitus which is ringing in my ears. when it is real quiet that’s all I hear so I use the TV to drown it out. I write in my kitchen usually. I always have coffee available. I will write for days when I get into it.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I am a big fan of The Holy Bible. Tom Clancy, Jack London, and CS Lewis. I love the book White Fang, and The Hunt for Red October.
