Smashwords Interview

What is your writing process?
I develop an general outline of story line, and then begin writing. I usually work in the morning and set a minimum target of writing two pages per day. The number of hours worked is flexible, but the minimum target is not. I do research as I go along, and I edit frequently.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
I read the Hardy Boys series as a young boy. I loved the suspense and mystery of the books.

Smashwords book reviews by Kenneth J Kerr

  • Eden Fading on May 27, 2014

    Fascinating story about a family of four boys growing up in Southern California in the early sixties. The oldest boy, Mike, is the main character, and the story follows his life from 1961, when he is just over three to 1965, when he is seven. Mike has an evil personality, and is repeatedly getting into trouble, poison is younger brother, Jerry, and continually doing evil, hurtful things to his younger brother, showing little or no remorse. The author uses an unusual writing style where the story is narrated in the first person by people who initially refer to themselves as "we" and later as "the watchers". They seem to be just observers, however, the final chapter brings light to the relationship between 'the watchers" and the family. Michael Barnett has written an interesting story about a family of boys growing up in California in the sixties. He develops the scenes in the book with incredible detail, using all the senses to describe all the characters and the settings. Although this is not the genre I would normally read, I have no problem recommending this book to others.
