Edward Mullen

Biography

Edward Mullen is a novelist, blogger and podcaster from Vancouver, Canada. His debut novel, THE ART OF THE HUSTLE was published in July 2012 and is available on Amazon and major eBook stores. Since the release of that novel, the response has been overwhelmingly positive. With a growing fan base thirsty for more, he released a second book DESTINY AND FREE WILL - a non-fiction book exploring the belief that everything happens for a reason. Now, his highly anticipated second novel is set to release later in 2013 called PRODIGY - a techno-thriller set in the future focusing on the perils of technology.

Born and raised in beautiful British Columbia, Edward developed a love for the wilderness. This love, combined with an innate curiosity about all things, eventually spawned a healthy imagination for storytelling. He continued to follow his natural passion all the way through to university. Despite spending a lot of his time indoors writing, Edward continues to enjoy the outdoors. He is an avid tennis player, mountain biker, snowboarder, runner, and traveller.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Like most people, I live to be happy, and one of the things that makes me happy is being creative. Whether it's through a blog, story, podcast, video, or whatever, each day presents an opportunity for me to create something. Life is like a board game, and board games are the most fun when it's your turn and you're winning. So each day I wake up, it feels like it's my turn, I get to roll the dice and move my token a step ahead.
What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book just came out in October 2013 and it's called Prodigy. It's set a hundred years in the future and focuses on a genius girl named Alex.

It came about in two ways:

First, I wanted to write a novel that was drastically different than my first book. Before sitting down to write it, I had already decided to pursue a career in writing. I had written one novel called The Art of the Hustle, which is a rags-to-riches tale based on my life. I figured if I wanted to pursue a career in writing and take myself seriously as a writer, I should be able to write about stuff I know nothing about. So I deliberately handicapped myself as a challenge just to see if I could do it. I made the protagonist female, gave her a form of autism called synesthesia, and set it 100 years in the future. The book was much more challenging to write, but I pulled it off. So far the reviews are even better than my first book.

The second story behind this book is that at the time, I just bought an iPhone and was so impressed with it. I loved the idea that you could carry around so much information in your pocket. I then asked myself, if this phone exists now, what will they have a 100 years from now? I came to the inevitable conclusion that information would be downloaded directly into a person's brain. And if that's true, I then asked what would that do to society? So that's the setting of Prodigy — brilliant people in a hyper-advanced society.
