Interview with David Darson

What's the story behind your latest book?
Its about the deadliest predators on earth. People will come up with their own concepts of the most dangerous predators, but evolution has only perfected one killer and it roams free and supreme in the water.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
Friends loved my story telling and they always wanted me to do more. So, it was a natural step. Plus, I always loved creating characters, places and story-lines.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Being able to entertain people, transporting them to a different place through storytelling.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Yea. I was 18. It was a college thing, people loved it. It was a blog thing. I don't even have the manuscript for that anymore.
What are you working on next?
A Novel. Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi
Who are your favorite authors?
Lots and lots. But among the ones alive I admire Dan Brown the most. Overall, I think I have enjoyed Michael Crichton's works the most.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Comic books. Among the books/short-stories, it was the abridged version of Charles Dickens' 'Great Expectations' that I first read at the age of 10. It had a profound impact upon me. I have not stopped reading ever since.
What are your five favorite books, and why?
Great Expectations
The Time Machine (H G Wells)
