Interview with Bookaholicanonymous

untitled.pngI talk about characters, my upcoming novel THE THIRST OF CAIN, and my journey so far as an author in a new interview with Smita Singh.  Bookaholicanonymous has lots of great interviews and articles so be sure to check out their other posts.  Here’s the link to my interview:  http://bookaholicanonymous.com/author-interview?id=40


Writing update February 2018

It’s been a while since I’ve updated anyone as to the status of what I’ve been working on.  I wanted to say that I’m nearing the halfway point to my next novel THE THIRST OF CAIN.  This is flowing real well, and I haven’t had to alter much of the outline I had created for it.

I’m going deep into some historical things that make it much more grounded than the prior novel.  My character Francis Murphy is really struggling with who he’s become, and it makes for a great story of inner turmoil.  Will he turn out to be a mass murdering monster or will he rid himself and countless others of the disease he carries?  You’ll just have to wait until the Spring to find out!

In other news, I have also begun laying out CONSUMED BY WAR for a Fall release.  My brother Dan will be working on cover art for both of these, and I think you’ll like what we’ve got in mind.  Thanks for the continued support, and stay tuned.

I’m secure enough to admit that I really enjoy the classic fairy tales.  Disney did a great job of bringing family friendly versions of them to life, and whether dark or happy, the stories are timeless.  When my daughter was born I wrote a children’s book for her called A LITTLE GIRL IN THE LAND OF THE HICCUPS.  I was heavily inspired by things like Baum’s Oz stories and Carroll’s Wonderland.  After finding success with my first children’s book I went back and began rereading some of the ones that inspired me and they are still enjoyable to this day.  Depicted here is a rare find called the OZ/Wonderland War.  It was a 4 issue mini-series that places both realms in the same reality, and although a little goofy is an enjoyable comic if just to see the characters unite and interact.  What is your favorite fairy tale type story?

9 Aliens, 8 conspiracies, 7 super heroes, 6 corrupt files, 5 Demon Spawns! 4 lost souls, 3 werewolves, 2 vampires, and zombies in a story.

The idea of time travel has fascinated me since as far back as I can remember.  Watching Superman reverse the direction of the Earth in a silly interpretation of going back in time; Marty McFly visiting the past and future in a Delorean; H.G. Wells classic The Time Machine; and Sam leaping from person to person in Quantum leap are just some of the things that hooked me in my youth.

Writing A COURSE FOR HUMANITY and its spinoff THE LOST HOUR was a lot of fun for me, but it took a long time to get right.  Time travel logic is difficult to maintain, but is manageable with some thought and research.  Pictured here is the U.S.S. Eldrige.  It is said that the government managed to send it back in time ten seconds on October 28th 1943.  This was dubbed the “Philadelphia Experiment,” although no one actually knows if the program ever even existed.  What do you think?  There are plenty of photos and historical things that could point to time travel being possible.  Do you think it’s a possibility and if so where would you go and when?

There’s no doubt that we have absolutely no knowledge of what lies out there in the vastness of space.  The unknown is great territory for some fantastic science fiction stories and more.  How much of what we theorize could be real?  When I wrote my novel DEVOURED UNIVERSE and its spinoff COSMIC ORBITS, I aimed to answer just that.  Recently a cigar shaped object came into our solar system from interstellar space and then headed back out.  Scientists are baffled as to what it might be.  The picture attached is a scientific artist’s rendition of what it looks like up close.  What do you think is out there?  Are we alone?  Chime in with your thoughts.

Conspiracy theories have been around for ages, but with the internet at our fingertips and technology booming it’s becoming harder to dispute a lot of them.  In fact a lot of them even become much less far fetched sounding once you start looking at the different points of view and available facts.  For my novel PLANET ATE and its spinoff ALIEN ENCOUNTERS I stuck mostly with conspiracies regarding extra terrestrials.  Depicted here are some ancient glyphs that appear to have flying craft in them.  It’s just one of the many pieces of “evidence” toward some of these claims.  What is your favorite or most fascinating conspiracy theory?

I’ve always been a fan of comic books.  They were a big part of my youth growing up and now I get to see them on the big and small screens.  When I wrote GENETIC MORSELS and its spinoff EVOLVED MUTATIONS, I wanted to portray abilities in a more realistic manner.  I wanted a comic book like novel that wouldn’t be so… well comic booky.  It had to be something any reader can enjoy because it would relate to the real world and how physics actually work.  Aside from the science behind it I also looked to real life examples of extraordinary abilities.  Take Stephen Wiltshire depicted here.  He can fly over a city in a helicopter one time and then draw every single detail he saw accurately.  He’s got the world’s most fascinating photographic memory.  If you had a super ability what would you want it to be?

Artificial Intelligence and computers have come a long way.  Just look at Sophia on the right.  She’s an AI robot that can communicate as if she were human.  You need to look up the videos if you haven’t yet.  Is technology our next step in evolution?  Do you think we’ve gone too far or should we push farther?  What are your thoughts?  My novel TECHNO FEAST and its spinoff VIRAL UPGRADES addresses some of these things.
