Michael Grist

I had the pleasure of interviewing Michael John Grist about his novel Mr. Ruins: A Thriller (click here).  We discussed everything form his new novel, how American accents score in the UK, and who would win in a battle between Kate and Pippa Middleton.  Fans of Sci Fi be sure to check out his new book that is now perma-free on Amazon (yes, free book!).  You can find links to his work and contact information at the bottom of the interview.  Here’s how it went: (more…)

TimTrimble

 

I recently interviewed Tim Trimble, author of Zegin’s Adventures in Epsilon which is now available (click here).  This is a printed edition of his first two works Zegin’s Infection (click here) and Zegin’s Abduction (click here) with added bonus content.  Tim is my kind of guy, a computer geek who loves to write novels.  We cover everything from why he is Bill Gates writing under a pen name, to the Pythagorean Theorem and why it is utterly useless in real world applications, to who would win in a battle royale hackathon between Turing and Zuckerberg on a Raspberry Pi.  You can find links to his work and contact information at the bottom of the interview.  Here’s how it went: (more…)

Shay West Picture

I had a chance to interview Shay West, author of the Portals of Destiny series and the Adventures of Alexis Davenport series, along with numerous other works.  Oh yeah, she also  has a doctorate in Human Medical Genetics and teaches at Colorado Mesa University when she’s not writing novels.  We talked about everything from what she’s currently working on to how Ebola will take over the world.  If you want to pick up a copy of Organ Reapers or connect with Dr. West through social media, you can find links at the bottom of the interview.  Here’s how it went: (more…)

Travis Hill

Travis Hill is the author of Diabolus (see my review here) and many other works that he exclaims are not similar to Diabolus.  I suppose I’ll take his word for it, since I can’t be certain.  What I do know is that Diabolus was a fascinating read.  I suspect it had more to do with the ridiculously awesome interview questions I carefully spent five minutes crafting after he’d written the book, but I can’t steal all the glory.   I won’t ramble any longer, but yeah, it was all me.  I said it.  Travis is a funny guy and we covered everything in this interview from writing genres, to why Led Zeppelin IS the greatest band of all time, and which two historical figures should get bloody in the octagon.  Here’s how it went: (more…)

Paladin's Odyssey

Bruce Fottler is the author of Paladin’s Odyssey (buy it here on Amazon)a sci-fi pandemic thriller that I have not read; however, that kick-ass cover art is calling my name.  Look at it, it’s begging to be read.  Oh, if my list weren’t so long I could get to it sooner.  In the meantime, Bruce agreed to answer my questions about his book (among other things).  True to form, I also asked him unrelated but important questions.  We talked about equity valuations, how to skate internal controls and defraud multi-national corporations, and the art of toilet paper roll replacement.  Here’s how it went down: (more…)

Descent Into Mayhem

I got an opportunity to talk to author Bruno Goncalves about a wide range of topics (you should expect nothing less) recently.  He just released a new book Descent Into Mayhem back in September with a sequel in the works.  You can find it on Amazon (click here).  I had a lot of fun and learned quite a bit about his family history in South Africa and Portugal.  Actually, I skimmed his words while dreaming about Charlize Theron, but he was none the wiser.  We covered everything from life experiences, to theories on sushi, to an epic historical calculus battle.  You can find his contact info and social networking pages at the bottom of the interview.  (more…)

howey, hugh

It was early afternoon last Friday at the office.  I was waiting for information from about four different people (I needed it to continue on a project) that I was sure would arrive later around 4 p.m. as they all left for the weekend.  Then, I’d have the pleasure of staying late and working into the evening.  In my bored state I thought, why not throw up a Hail Mary and see what Hugh Howey is up to, maybe he’ll answer some questions for my readers.  Much to my surprise, I had a response within about two hours that said he’d be delighted and for me to send my questions on over.  I was completely unproductive the rest of the day–doing multiple river dances and whatnot in utter elation–so if I’m jobless before the Thanksgiving holiday I may have to hit him up for a loan.

If you’re unfamiliar with Howey, he is author of the NY Times and USA Today best-selling WOOL series.  Though that hardly encompasses his body of work as he writes in multiple genres, and very well I might add.  Before becoming a best-selling author, Howey spent a decade as the captain of a yacht, sailing around the world, doing odd jobs, and working in a book store among many other things.
