Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
For the last two years, I've been working on a story called The Wishing Well. The idea came from Elton John's song: I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues. The song begins with the line: Don't wish it away. The line stuck in my head until the book was born. Daven, (the main character) is faced with a life decision: to save thousands of lives, he must take back his wish, or...wish it away.
The Wishing Well is due out shortly in ebook form.
Who are your favorite authors?
Stephen King. Not just for his incredible stories, but the style of writing. Within one chapter, you're drawn so into the story, you know the characters so well, it's impossible to put down.
Michael Crighton...
Lincoln Child
Louis Lamour
Dean Koontz
I like the weird and different, but also well written.

    Excellent read. Well written characters that draw you in and hold you throughout.The first person narrative gives it a little something special, and the author obviously knows the south enough to write about it intelligently. A good story that is well written. I'm looking forward to the sequel.
