What inspires you to write?
I have always wondered about the various solutions to the 'overpopulation crisis', the 'climate change crisis'. Do these intelligentsia actually want to destroy humanity?
Here is a thriller about how their 'final solution' might work.
Let's hope they are wrong – Tracker is too powerful for any of them!
Tell us about your writing process.
Non-fiction is all about the facts; thus, I outline the research, organize it, then write it.
Fiction is different: the story wrote itself, or rather, Tracker dictated to me…
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
Tracker has dictated most of the book: more than 60%. I listen she writes. Quite amazing actually. She is my 'mini-me'.
The rest is from research on pandemics and their responses from the CDC.
What advice would you give other writers?
Persistence is the master stroke of success.
Write every day, as you would exercise, eat or sleep. Make it an integral part of your life style.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
Self-publishing requires more effort. You must think as a business owner, which I am. Publishers give the appearance to me of sharks eating entrails from bloodied waters. do it yourself makes more economic sense – if you have the drive.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
Amazon dictates, the industry responds. It has become a dichotomous, treacherous dance macabre…
What genres do you write?: non-fiction, fiction
What formats are your books in?: Both eBook and Print
