Half & Half

  1. Do all authors have to be grammar Nazis?  No we do not have to know everything. We just have to be able to pull the readers in with a great story. Although it is a good thing to at least know how to structure a sentence.
  2. Have you ever designed your own book cover?  I came up with the idea of the cover to Half & Half and my wife created it on illustrator.  The cover actually tells the story.
  3. Does a bad review affect your writing?  No. Everyone has their own flavor and sometimes i just don’t fit in.
  4. Do you read any of your own work?  Yes. I read Half & Half at least once every two weeks. I really like the story and characters.
  5. Who are your books mostly dedicated to?  My Wife. Of course.
  6. Is it true that anyone can be a writer?  If you have a story to tell then yes.
  7. People believe that being a published author is glamorous, is that true?  It feels amazing to be a published writer. It is not Glamorous though. Unless you wrote Harry Potter and have a theme park.
  8. Did any of your books get rejected by publishers?  Yes.
  9. Do you reply back to your fans and admirers personally?  Yes. If you write to me then I write to you. I feel that it is important to make your fans feel important. Without them we have nothing.
  10. Do you believe attractive book covers help in its sales?  I believe that the story of the book should grab the attention. If you have an amazing book cover but a lousy story then it doesn’t matter.
  11. Is writing book series more challenging?  No. Half & Half is a three book series. As long as the story does not get boring then it is all good. Once you feel there is nothing left to say, end it.
  12. What do you do in your free time?  I write, play video games, cook out and spend time with my wonderful wife.
  13. Are all writers rich?  No.
  14. Are you friends with other writers?  Yes. I have a few author friends. (No it is not JK Rowling)
  15. How are your relations with your family? Do you like to stay in touch?  My family never thought i would amount to anything. When i told them i wanted to be a published author they laughed in my face. No. I do not like to stay in touch. No one should stay in touch with anyone that makes them feel horrible about themselves. (No I am not sad about it)
  16. Which book would you want adapted for the silver screen?  Half & Half.
  17. Doesn’t it bother you that when books are turned into movies, they are often changed to suit the audience needs?  I understand that they have to change things to make others agree to put it on the big screen. What i really do not understand is why add things that never happened in the books and then take out things that did actually meant something.
  18. Can you tell us about your current projects?  I am writing Half & Half Book 2. I am also writing a book I like to call SHE.
  19. Have any of your past loves inspired characters in your books?  Yes, but then i killed them off before the pen reached the paper.
  20. Is privacy an issue for you?  No. My fans are welcome to come up to me and chat or take pictures.
