"An excellent read. I love the whole World on Fire series which this book compliments [...] The plot moves at a good pace and keeps the reader intrigued. I didn't want to put the book down. I would recommend this book to readers interested in the paranormal/horror/mystery genres." Susan, Goodreads

Tell us about your latest release, including its genre. Does it cross over to other genres? If so, what are they?
I tried to blend together horror and action in this novel, because they are two of my favorite genres and it fits in with the Raven’s Peak series that is already written. I like mashing up different things and making it feel like the world isn’t just one note.
Why did you write your book (or series)?
A lot of readers told me they wanted to know more about Arthur and what happened earlier in his life after reading Raven’s Peak. He was such a broken character in that novel that I really wanted to flesh him out more.
When did you first realize you wanted to be a writer?
I’ve always been writing stories, and it’s just something I do for the fun of it. I don’t really want to get stuck in a position that I have to write to make money, but I do love to finish new projects.
What do you find are the best and worst parts of being an indie author?
You have complete control over your career and what you choose to do, but it also means you have to do it all alone. That makes things a lot more difficult and means that you have to write, market, publish, research, and more tasks that traditional authors can avoid.
What do you like to do when you're not writing?
Watch TV with my wife or go on walks with my dog, Luther.
Do you have any pets at home?
Yep, my pugamonster Luther. He likes to sit on the back of our couch and watch out the window. You know, because he’s weird.
How much of your personality is in your main character?
A little bit of my personality ends up in all of my characters, and I try to also give them more than just one element. I want them to feel real and interesting.
What advice would you give to an aspiring writer?
Have fun with the writing, and don’t be afraid to market and promote. You’ll make mistakes along the way, but in general people who don’t market don’t sell, and if anything that trend is getting worse.
Are your stories driven by plot or character?
Character. I design plots, but the characters never follow along with my original outline and I find the story changing as it moves forward.
What book, movie or TV show has most influenced your life or writing?
I love the television show Supernatural, and I also loved reading The Dresden Files by Jim Butcher.
What are your current projects and plans for the future?
I want to wrap up this series and move on to a horror/sci-fi series I want to write that will be totally bonkers. It fits into my graveyard of empires series and tells an entirely new story.
