Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I'm actually finishing up "Martuk ... the Holy: Proseuche", the sequel to "Martuk ... the Holy" which should be published sometime this November (2013). And, I gotta tell you, I got a kick out of writing this because I have planned what's going to happen and where the story's going to go, of course. But with this book, it took me by surprise and threw me into places I never could have imagined. I just hope every book I write from now on does that.
Who are your favorite authors?
I get asked this a lot and, quite honestly, I have to divide them into groups: those I've read for pleasure and those I read now for research. Because when you write about historical places and times, a great deal of what you read will, by necessity, be research. So, I'm really enjoying Reza Aslan and his book "Zealot" about the ministry of Jesus. And I've always enjoyed how Susan Wise Bauer can bring the past to life in her world histories. But for pleasure, I tend to always turn to Anne Rice -- love, love, love "The Witching Hour" -- and Stephen King. I mean, if I'm going to take time out of writing for a bit of reading, might as well turn to The Masters, right?
