A. C. Thompson

Biography

My wife, Deborah, and I live full time in our RV, a ‘98 Hitchhiker Discovery 5th wheel with our tiny Chihuahua, Porsche. We know that to some, living in an RV full time doesn’t sound like the ideal lifestyle, but it’s our American Dream. We’re currently travelling the country, meeting new people, immersing ourselves in new communities, and enjoying the great outdoors while reaching out to the lost, the hurting, and those in need with the love of Christ. We document our travel adventures in our blog. I also occasionally ;) write poems and I’m currently working on my first novel.

Smashwords Interview

When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
I can never get enough of history documentaries, especially anything put together by Ken Burns. My wife and I are both movie junkies, especially action, sci-fi, or noir films from the '40s and '50s. I'm a bit of a retro gaming nerd, and even though space is limited in the fifth wheel we live in, I actually have three old consoles, an Atari 2600, an Atari 7800, and an original Nintendo Entertainment System, complete with the required CRT TV. What's the point in playing these thirty plus year old games if you don't have scanlines on the screen? I also like doing touristy things, like checking out small town mom and pop souvenir shops or antique malls, going on scenic drives to the middle of nowhere, and taking hundreds of photographs on mountain hikes.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I've discovered tons of great indie authors through groups I've joined on Goodreads. I like reading relatively unknown writers, and I think it's wonderful how many new authors are breaking out now, thanks to the revolution that ebooks represent. That kind of success was unheard of even a few years ago.
