What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I wanted to tell a story about a bad guy you wanted to root for. When you read through it and think he’s bad and then all of the sudden something clicks and you realize he isn’t that bad. I wanted readers to be torn at the end of the book wondering if they should be rooting for him to prevail or not.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Wolf was just a normal guy who got caught up in emotions and made some bad decisions. It was a testament to how quickly somebody could be pulled down a road that isn’t the best but not by their own choice. Everybody in the book is based off of the influences I wanted him to have.
I stuck my head around the corner of the shed door to try and see who was out there. I saw four guys pretty close to the shed, all of them armed, talking to each and probably discussing whether they thought I was dead or not. I ran their way in a true run and gun fashion and shot three times taking three of them down.
My gun jammed as I went to shoot the last guy and I threw my gun at him and moved quickly towards him. The gun had hit him in the face which didn’t hurt him too bad but definitely stunned him and I was able to get there in time before he got a shot fired off and hit his arm right at the elbow joint, forcing him to drop the gun and then I tripped him to the ground.
I could tell by the gun and the scope that this was the guy that had shot me from long distance but probably only 150 yards out. It was far enough out that I didn’t notice them but close enough to close in quickly. He got up and swung at me catching me with a right hook but I came back quickly with a right hook of my own and then kneed him in the stomach that bent him over.
He came back up with an uppercut but missed and I tackled him to the ground. I began punching him as hard as I could, trying to knock him out. He then grabbed the bullet wound on my shoulder and dug his fingers in. I felt immense pain and burning as he dug into all the exposed nerves and he was able to flip me over to my back. He kept his hand on the wound, pushing and prying, as he began punching me with the other hand.
I couldn’t move my left hand up because of my shoulder pain and I was trying to block the best I could with my right hand. He landed several good shots and I was starting to feel dizzy though I didn’t know if it was because of the hits to the head or my shoulder pain. As he was coming down with a punch I grabbed his wrist and drove my elbow through his own elbow as hard as I could, pushing it the wrong way until it snapped.
He yelled in pain and removed his hand from my shoulder which allowed me to push him off of me. He was trying to push himself up with one hand but I was able to get to one of the guns from the other guys in time and fired three times into his chest. He fell and almost simultaneously I fell to my knees, exhausted from the fight even though it was short and in a lot of pain.
