Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I'm a debut author having self-published my first novel via Pronoun. I've had a varied career, with stints as a journalist, a graphic designer and a business owner. I'm 47 and plan from this point on to write and self-publish as many full-length novels as I can before I'm pushing up daisies.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
My debut novel is titled The Jesus Man. It's based upon an idea I had over thirty years ago but never got around to writing it. I spent all of 2016 and the first four months of this year writing and revising it.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I do sometimes pace around the house while thinking of plot lines. It helps to free my mind from the constant staring at a computer.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
Authors such as H P Lovecraft, H G Wells, Edgar Allan Poe, George Orwell
What are you working on now?
After a two-month break from releasing my debut novel, I'm now working on my second titled NexiLexicon.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
I think my efforts (due to budget constraints) are limited so I'm hoping for word of mouth to work in my favour in due time.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Yes, be prepared for the long game. There are very few who make it overnight.
What is the best advice you have ever heard?
Don't listen to advice!
What are you reading now?
An absolute avalanche of research material for my second book!
What’s next for you as a writer?
To simply continue what I love doing which is writing and try not to worry too much about exposure and marketing etc.
What is your favorite book of all time?
