R.J. Maxwell


I live in Western New York and work full time as a Quality Manager. I have been married 29 years and have a beautiful wife and three amazing children . I am an author in my spare time, family first, pen in hand second. My interests range from paranormal research to the writing of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. I am about as complex as my writings, as you will see in upcoming books.

Smashwords Interview

What inspires your books?
That's a tough question. I know most authors probably have a ready answer for that but I don't. The inspiration for my paranormal books comes from real personal life experiences, psychological thrillers are based on recurring dreams with fragments from what I know are past life experiences. If I write poetry or prose it may stem from a moment in life such as a birth, death or loss of some sort, that just sort of brings it to life on paper.
Are you working on a book right now? If so what is it about?
Yes I am working on a psychological thriller that's taken me over a year to write. The next step is reading it like it's not mine, critiquing it like I hate the author, picking on it like my fourth grade english teacher and then picking up the pieces and trying to put it back together like a parent with a kids favorite broken toy. Regarding the second half of your question I can't tell you what it's about, but its my most intense project. This book stems from a recurring dream I've had since childhood.

The Weeping Tree is a story about a mystical place in another dimension that the human soul goes when they are depressed, overwhelmed with sadness and need a place of solace to spend time and reflect. We all go off somewhere in our emotional time of need, this is just my version of where the mind or spirit goes. This place is where all my writings come from, my dreams.
