Smashwords Interview

What's the story behind your latest book?
My latest book is named The Sentinel. Eighteen months has passed since Rex Chase and George Ahiga defeated Dietrich Hoff. Rex has spent his time buried in work studying scalar energy while George and Angela have been busy working for The Organization. An attempt on the President's life starts the action which leads Rex and George on a raucous adventure.

When I sat down to write my first book I had the second and third books pretty much mapped out in my mind. I stuck with a lot of what I had originally planned, but some great story ideas popped up when writing the second book that I just couldn't leave out. It was fun to write and I'm working diligently on the third.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I always wanted to write a book. I spent years in bands, writing music, and as I got older I started to realize that writing a book and writing an album aren't really all that disconnected. They both take a lot of focused creativity and organization. So, I had a bunch of ideas floating around in my head, but the most developed one was a three part series. That's where I started and Rex Chase was born!
