1.What inspired you to be a writer?
I always had write a book on my bucket list. Did some writing but finally got a chance to put it all together after retirement. I found it to be the hardest thing I have done. Then I found out the editing and marketing was even harder.
2. Can you tell us about “Flash Back”?
The time is 1942, the place is Chicago. Travel back in time with Sam as he investigates a brutal murder but finds himself in over his head. Targeted by a professional killer and trapped alone in another era, he is faced with a dilemma: Can he stop the killer? Should he?
3. What advice would you give young writers?
Start writing and expect to make mistakes. There is plenty of help and support from the writing community. Getting started may be the hardest thing.
4. How do you come up with a story idea?
I’ve always had a love of science fiction and history, specifically the World War II era. I put the two together in my first book.
5. Plans for 2021?
I am working on the third book in the series and hope to have it completed by end of year.
Recently retired from over 18 years of Software Development, I am now able to focus my full attention on writing and publishing. I live in upstate New York with my wife, Sue. We have two adult children living close by. When not writing, I thoroughly enjoy hiking, biking and camping. Recent trips took Sue and I to: Puerto Rico, where we hiked the El Yunque National Rain Forest; Alaska where we visited Denali National Park; and Mexico where we hiked the ruins at Tulum and explored a river cave.
As an independent author I am responsible for every aspect of each book: from concept to writing to marketing and promotion. I think you will find independent authors do not fit into any typical writing style and have unique ideas that will surprise you. Give an Indie Author a try!
