I am presently working on Book 2 of my sci-fi series called Colossus. Book 1 will be released sometime in the Fall of 2017.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I love walking and playing with my little schnauzer, Beamer 3. When it's not too hot, I love to sneak in a round of golf or go fishing.
What is your writing process?
I wish I had a fantastic tale to tell but I don't. Unlike many authors, I just sit down and starting writing. If the storyline isn't coming to me like it normally does, I drive around the country roads early in the morning. Many times parts of the story will evolve during those drives.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I think I was 10 or 11 years old when I wrote my first story. It was about a very rich man that traveled around giving money to needy families without them knowing who gave it to them.
Do you read other books while you write? If so, which book are you currently reading?
Yes, I'm currently reading a sci-fi book called 'Internal Wars.'
Do you have a favorite genre of book?
My favorites are thrillers & action
What is your e-reading device of choice?
Kindle Fire HD
Did where you grew up influence your writing in the past? Currently?
I don't really know what specifically influenced my love for writing. If I had to give an answer, it would have to be my love for reading another author's work.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
My joy is the amazement I feel during the writing process. It's like when a great storyline falls into place perfectly. I never get tired of asking myself "Where did that come from?" I also have to add the pride I feel when my fans tell me what they love about my stories!
