Qn 1: Can you tell us more about your book What is it about?
I write serial and short commercial fiction. “The Find” is the first story in a new series. It is about a couple of brothers who while geocaching find way more than they expect. The series takes off from there with twists, turns, and surprise along the way.
Qn 2: Who do you think would be interested in this book, is it directed at any particular market?
People who like geocaching will really enjoy this series. Readers who just like good, fun serial fiction with a “what will happen next?” ending to each story will enjoy it as well.
Qn 3: Out of all the books in the world, and all the authors, which are your favourite and why?
I have always really enjoyed good, commercial short fiction. I am not talking about literary stories or deep works, but short stories that really hit you with a plot and take you away for a short bit. My favorite collection of works like this is “No Comebacks” by Frederick Forsyth. This book was published in 1982 but I feel it is a fantastic collection of the type of stories I really enjoy and aspire to write. It is just a great collection of stories covering a variety of settings and characters. It truly a fun read.
Qn 4: What guidance would you offer to someone new, or trying to enhance their writing?
Finish something! It is that simple. I often had ideas for stories but just getting a project through start to finish seemed daunting. Make your goal to just finish, then improve upon it. Once you do that things will start to flow.
