Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
There’s nothing too extravagant about me. I work in management consulting and have a wife and to children. My free time is spent practicing Muay Thai, reading and writing. So far, I have two novels and a one short story, or a novelette, published. My first self-published work is Strip Club Shooting out now on Amazon. This is a new channel for me and I’m very excited to see how this all works out.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Strip Club Shooting. The inspiration came, sadly, from the terrorist attacks we’ve seen happening all over the world. Perhaps most notable the Paris incident. This prompted me think around the reactions of the individuals trapped inside and what if there was something more going on during those few painful minutes than what meets the eye.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Maybe less unusual, but I tend to do my writing while commuting on a train. And when that is not an option, then I have to do the multitasking thing where I pretend to watch TV with my wife, while in reality typing silently away.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Difficult to say. I read every genre and from all over the world. Older pieces as well. Perhaps they’ve all had some kind of influence.
What are you working on now?
I’m working on a bit of a different type of story right now. I don’t even know the right genre for it! And I don’t really want to jinx it at this stage. All I’m willing to say is that it goes beyond the realm of the living.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Awesomegang, of course.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Just keep at it. There’s a reason everyone keeps telling its hard. But if you want to finish your work, you will, if you just keep at it long enough.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
What are you reading now?
What’s next for you as a writer?
Finish the book I’m working on right now and start planning the plot and characters of yet another.
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?
Easy. Count of Monte Cristo and Robinson Crusoe. The last one i would write myself as I would finally have plenty of time to do so.
