Chad Al Sauve

Biography

Chad Al Sauve was born in 1984 in North Bay, Ontario. In 1993, he was in a serious car accident and suffered severe, nearly fatal, brain damage. He was in a coma for two weeks, and when he came to, with wires in his head and tubes up his nose, he couldn’t walk, talk, and was paralyzed on his right side. It took many months of therapy -physio, speech and occupational-, but he learned to walk again, talk again and move his right side, however, his right side was and will always be much weaker than his left, which has now become his dominate side. As much of an ordeal as his brain injury was, with it came his ability to write as prolifically as he does. Before the injury, he would never have had the patience to sit for four hours at a time writing on his computer. He started writing song lyrics when he was 10 years old, a year after the accident. They had titles like, “I’m in Love,” “I Dream of You,” “I Want You,” “I Care for You,” “I Miss You,” and of course, “I Need you,” and they all pretty much had the same lyrics but with different titles. As he got older, his song writing improved but, still he just wrote songs. Until one day, he approached his mother with an idea. It wasn’t an idea for a song or a novel, it was just an idea, something he wished he could have made a reality. His mother asked if he was planning to turn that into a novel and he said that he didn’t know. She told him that either he turn it into a novel or she would. So, he set out to write a novel and for his very first novel(unpublished, of course)it wasn’t half bad. He was then hooked on writing novels and from that day forward, few days have gone by where he didn’t sit down in front of his computer and write. Chad Al Sauve lives in Sudbury, Ontario in a crappy little apartment, on a crappy little street. Mating Season is his first published novel but he plans to release many more in the future so he can get off that crappy little street.

Smashwords Interview

How do you discover the ebooks you read?
I have certain authors I enjoy but I also like picking a book not because of the author but because of the description, or even simply the title. It's exciting and an adventure. Occasionally, I may choose a flop but many times, I'm happy with my purchase. And by taking that chance on an unknown author, I have widened my choices of reading material, which is always a good thing.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
Hmm...when I'm not writing, I'm either reading, at the gym or walking. Reading is obvious when it comes to being a writer, but you also need that time away from writing, as in going to the gym or taking long walks. Sometimes I get my best idea's when I'm going for walks. However, when I'm at the gym, I'm just at the gym and nothing else is going through my mind.
