About H. C. Turk

A: This is hard.
Q: Why is making a bio so hard for you?
A: Because it's like talking. I don't like to talk; I like to write.
Q: But people want to know about authors. Reading a book requires a lot of effort.
A: Writing one ain't exactly playtime.
Q: That's better. Go ahead, tell us more. Did you have a pleasant childhood?
A: Ask my dog; he was there.
Q: Your dog is stuffed. He's not a real dog.
A: He's more real than you are. You can’t even ask a good question.
Q: Here’s one: Why should people read your books?
A: Because my puppy will be sad if they don’t.
Q: We need to get serious here. How many novels have you written?
A: 33.
Q: I’ll bet your dog can’t count that high. How long have you been writing?
A: I’ll answer if you promise not to kick my dog again (metaphorically).
Q: He wouldn’t feel it—he’s stuffed.
A: If someone kicked the stuffing out of you, I bet you wouldn’t enjoy it.
Q: Would I enjoy it more than reading one of your books? Or would it be equally painful?
A: You’re cruel to dogs AND to authors.
Q: If you answer my last question, I promise to be nice. How many years have you been writing?
A: [mumbles]
Q: That’s pathetic.
A: Why don’t you ask me about my stories?
Q: Stories are for campfires.
A: The basis of history’s greatest novels is the story: the story of nations, cultures, families, individuals. The greatest idea that can be expressed in fiction is story.
Q: Great, so tell me about your characters.
A: Dull and Dumb are not two of my characters, or characteristics.
Q: Do you ever write about animals, stuffed or not?
A: Rescued greyhounds in Heaven Again, tiny ponies in Only The Impassioned, mudfish in Resurrection Flowers, ghosts in An Atmosphere Of Angels.
Q: Ghosts aren’t animals, they’re unsettled spirits. If ghosts continue to read, what will they find in your novels?
A: They will find passion, idea, and spirited characters whose lives are a story. And puppies.

Review by: Stephani McCallum on Nov. 25, 2012 :
I was excited about the concept of this book. The main character was really hard for me to feel any empathy or concern for, due to his vulgarity and lack of concern for anything but his own answers. Gifted with a second chance at life, I have a hard time imaging anyone spending it that way. The writing was, at times, hard to decipher. That said, I did find myself thinking about the book while I was away, and found the story line intriguing, if not quite expressed in the way I'd prefer.

Review by: Haley Whitehall on Nov. 20, 2012 :
I liked the premise of this book better than the book itself mainly to do with the author's writing style. The plot is very interesting. Rod, a construction worker, dies but isn't dead. He travels the world. He meets up with Aeva, a foreign born who tries to figure out whether he is worthy enough to keep his second chance at life.

The book was hard for me to get into at first. It is written in fancy language which is often difficult to read and at times sentences were hard to understand. My brain couldn't keep up with the constant changes.

This book will give you a headache if you're not up for a challenging read. It is clearly not written for the average casual reader.

Note: I received a free copy of this book to read and review.
