Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
I do fondly. I started getting interested in writing when I was around 12 years old. Growing up, I loved reading stories of adventure and action. This desire followed me through junior high and high school. I always knew I wanted to do some professional writing. This interest led me into journalism and then to writing novels. My first novel, Unforeseen Fury, was published in 2011. I have just recently published my second novel, Summer of Fear.
What is your writing process?
I try to write for at least two hours a day. I spend at least an hour researching topics that are included in my stories.

Smashwords book reviews by Christopher McGarry

  • I Am: Emptiness on June 17, 2015

    Chilling, Unique Read ‘I Am Emptiness’ is one of the most interesting fiction novels I have picked up in quite a long time. The tone of the story is quite unsettling at times and also dark. I enjoyed getting to know the main characters, particularly Robert, Emma and Miriam. The author’s sense of description is impeccable, as is his ability to use the English language. Overall, ‘I Am Emptiness’ is an outstanding book. I enjoyed it from beginning to end. If you have time, pick it up. You won’t be disappointed.
