What is your book about?
Hi, my book Johnny oops is about a young man who doesn’t know whether he is a prophet, a charlatan or a sex maniac, but is convinced he has the word of God to deliver.
What inspired you to write this particular story?
I don’t know what inspired me to write this book. It just popped out of my mind.
How much of yourself is hidden in the characters in the book?
I wish more of myself was in the principal character, Johnny oops, but some small parts straggle in.
Who is your most unusual/most likeable character?
I think one of the best characters is Doctor O’Hara who goes crazy trying to straighten Johnny out.
How long did it take you to write your book?
It took me less than six months to write and four years to edit again and again and again.
How much of a story do you have in mind before you start writing it?
I had very little of the story in mind, but some thoughts about the main character and his smart ass attitude.
Did you do any research for the book?
Did some google research on Quantum Computing.
How (or when) do you decide that you are finished writing a story?
I usually get the idea for the end about half way through the book from the characters themselves. Hate to get it too early because then I have a tendency to race to the conclusion.
What is your goal for the book, ie: what do you want people to take with them after they finish reading the story?
I want people to think they have had a worthwhile experience. There is always some spiritual or moral context to my stories.
Is there a message in your writing you want readers to grasp?
I want people to know there is always a higher power guiding our lives without getting to deeply into religion. Wih me it’s more of a spiritual and faith building type of thing.
Does writing come easy for you?
Writing comes easily to me.I never have writers block. Editing comes hard. I am currently struggling to get out the next four of the eight books i have in manuscript form.
What genre are your books?
My books are all some form of fantasy.
