Have there been any authors who have influenced your work? If so, who?
Yes, Lee Child and Nelson DeMille.
Out of all the characters you’ve written, who is your favorite? Why?
All of the characters I write about are very real to me so I really have no favorite.
Are there any types of scenes you find more difficult to write? Which ones and why.
Scenes with death in them are difficult since I feel as though I was there as it happened.
What would you say the most rewarding part of being an author is?
The ability to expand someone’s imagination.
What advice do you have for authors just starting out in their journey?
Don’t worry about what others think, just go for it.
Do you have a writing ritual? If so, please explain.
Not that I know of.
Was being an author something you always wanted to do?
No, I didn’t start writing until others asked me to do so. Now I very much enjoy it.
If you could have a conversation with any one person, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
Anyone who has lost their mother knows the only answer to this question.
Would you care to provide an excerpt from one of your books as a sample of your work?
I looked across my crew. I was looking for John Wayne, he wasn’t there. I looked for Arnold, same thing. I also didn’t find Stalone, Clint nor Chuck Norris. The reality of it was none of my heroes were there, this was NOT the movies. I needed just one Badass and found none.What I found was a high school yearbook.I found fresh off the farm boys, children by most people’s standards. Some of these boys weren’t even getting to go to their senior prom. I feel safe in the notion that some of them have not even held a girls hand. That doesn’t sound like much unless you haven’t done it. Think about that for a minute. They haven’t lived yet and are prepared to die.
