Smashwords Interview

Who are your favorite authors?
I love to read suspense thrillers. My action/adventure favorites right now are Preston & Child, Clive Cussler, Matthew Reilly, and Lee Child, and I strive to emulate that style of high-action thriller in my novel, The Race, and its upcoming sequel, Formula. The suspense thriller icons currently on my bedside table are Harlan Coben, Lisa Gardner, Thomas Harris, and Daniel Silva, and my novels The Sculptor, as well as Formula, are akin to their style of mystery stories.
What's the story behind your latest book?
When blood is thicker than water, and a formula for revenge threatens a global calamity, Devlin Lucchesi must race against time to stop it, come HELL Rangers or high water. Thirsty yet? FORMULA is coming November 2018.
