Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I live near Philadelphia with my wife and 5 kids. I’ve published one other book – An Uncommon Blue (2014 Cedar Fort)
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
I saw a man flirting with a woman much older than him. It made me wonder what a dating service would be like if age didn’t matter, if you could go back or forward in time to court anyone you choose.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I write in the jetway between flights. (I’m an international gate agent for American Airlines.)
What authors, or books have influenced you?
JK Rowling, Roald Dahl, CS Lewis, Patrick Rothfuss, Brandon Sanderson
What are you working on now?
The Time Traveler’s Sewing Kit (YA Fantasy)
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Um….guilting my friends into buying my book. 🙂
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Find some good beta readers. Connect with other authors. Read LOTS of books on the craft. Don’t be afraid to shelve a project if it’s not receiving interest. Keep pumping out those novels and sooner or later you’ll hit gold.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Don’t compare yourself to other authors.
What are you reading now?
Just finished Dark Matter by Blake Crouch. AMAZING.
What’s next for you as a writer?
Keep having fun without letting my children starve.
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?
The Bible, The Book of Mormon, Name of the Wind, and a blank notebook to write notes for rescue.
