Thank you for this interview!  I’d like to know more about you as a person first.  What do you do when you’re not writing?

My other hobbies include reading and playing the guitar. Also, I enjoy hanging out with my family.

When did you start writing?

I have been writing pretty much since I was big enough to hold a pencil. Back then, my only fans were my parents, but you have got to start somewhere right?

As a published author, what would you say was the most pivotal point of your writing life?

I would have to say that most pivotal point was when my first novel released. This was done through a royalty-paying publisher who was taking quite a risk as I was an unknown author. It really meant a lot to me that a publisher deemed my writing worthy of that risk. And now because that risk had been taken, my popularity as a writer had grown greatly and I now have three novels in print as well as one novelette.

If you could go anywhere in the world to start writing your next book, where would that be and why?

If I could go anywhere, then I would go where I always go to write, that being inside of my head. That’s where I find new ideas, new worlds, new plots, new characters, etc. If you are asking where I would go physically, I don’t have a specific place – I can write pretty much wherever I may roam. Currently, I do a lot of writing in my basement because it’s quiet and conducive to completing the task of putting to paper the things happening inside of my brain.

If you had 4 hours of extra time today, what would you do?

That’s an easy answer. I would write. Also, I may take some of it to sleep. Sleep is always good and something that I often don’t allow myself to get enough of.

Where would you like to set a story that you haven’t done yet?

Well, I am just starting the rough draft for a novel set in the Southeastern United States during the 1930s.

Back to your present The Space Between trilogy series, how did you publish it?

For the first book entitled The Space Between, I just blanketed the publishing world with requests for representation and promptly got a stack of rejection letters. One publisher however was interested: Martin Sisters Publishing. I signed a royalty-paying contract with them and my publishing journey began.

The Space Between did well enough that Martin Sisters agreed to publish the second book in the series entitled The Devil’s Revenge. With these two books available, my readership really began to take off. Due to those sales, a separate publisher (Gabriel’s Horn Press) vied for the third and final book in the trilogy entitled Hell on Earth which published through them in December of 2016.

It has been quite a journey, but one that I wouldn’t trade for anything. I love working with my publishers and editors. It’s been great!

Why was writing The Space Between trilogy series so important to you?

This series is my fictional interpretation of the Bible’s end-time prophecy. The Bible is very important to me as is my relationship with Jesus, so writing in this genre was kind of a no-brainer. Plus, I always wanted to write a Christian/fantasy/apocalyptic thriller series, so now I can check that off my bucket-list J.

Where do you get your best ideas and why do you think that is?

Many of my ideas originate with my dreams and nightmares. These have often been vivid enough to jolt me awake during the night. So, my writing is a great way to get those images out of my head and onto paper.

Any final words?
