William Songy

Biography

William's first story was a picture book titled Crunch the Crab written at the academic age of six. Inexplicably the graphic novel fell woefully short of reaching #1 on the New York Times Best Sellers list. Nevertheless, after three decades of reflection on what should have been, he completed and published the first of three self-help books.

In 2003, after an incident with his son, he was inspired to study the supernatural and explore the spiritual realm. It was during this journey that his interest in writing expanded, which led to the completion of his first spiritual warfare novel titled Open Windows. He has since completed a second novel Beyond this Realm.

William and his wife have three children and two grandchildren. When not traveling, they live and eat well while living in Southeast Louisiana.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
My father is an avid outdoorsman, so we grew up on the water and in the woods in Southeast Louisiana. I was a certified open water SCUBA diver at 13 years old. We were always out in the deep water of the Gulf of Mexico, in the lake, on a beach, or on the river.

In the book Open Windows, the area of the Pearl River that I used in the story is a place where my friends and I spent a lot of time fishing and skiing. We made a lot of good memories there it was only fitting that I should include those places in my writing.
When did you first start writing?
I started writing almost 20 years ago. I had a really vivid and crazy dream one night and I just had to write it down. After I started working on it, I found writing to be an awesome escape. It was nice to disappear for a while when writing.
