Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I grew up in the country outskirts of Bristol, England. After my Army career, I settled with my family in Germany. Wanting to write fantasy-fiction books was a childhood dream of mine, but I only decided to write decades later. In 2013 my first book ‘The Perennial Migration’ went online as Kindle ebook for sale.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
The Perennial Migration. I always wondered what would happen if mankind could no longer live on Earth and was left without technology – this open question inspired me to write my first book.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
Not sure whether unusual, but I like to write during train journeys, while for thinking I like to be out in the countryside.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Herbert, Koontz and King
What are you working on now?
I haven’t yet decided whether to continue work on a sequel to The Perennial Migration or something completely different. Maybe a fan base for my debut novel can convince me to continue the story!
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
At present I’m using many methods. Pretty-Hot.com is the first to offer participation in an interview so I am very pleased about that.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Yes. Do not be shy in asking other authors for advice and feedback. I found many to be down-to-earth and very helpful and honest.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
“Go on, publish your book.”
What are you reading now?
Actually that is a very good idea! I could do with a break and just read – not sure what the book will be though.
What’s next for you as a writer?
As an Indie author I will continue marketing my book until my next book is for sale. I will also be preparing a softcover format of The Perennial Migration.
What is your favorite book of all time?
Well my favourite Koontz book was “False Memory”.
