He was one of several marked for death, but the only one who saw it coming.



What is the hardest part of writing your books?

The hardest part is probably the third draft or so, where I’m fine tuning everything and doing my best to make sure it all fits together, including that the timeline is correct and I haven’t made any noticeable continuity errors.


What songs are most played on your Ipod?

Actually, I don’t own an Ipod, but in terms of my favorite stuff to listen to, practically any rock or pop from the 70’s.



Do you have critique partners or beta readers?

No, for some reason I’ve never gone that route.



What book are you reading now?

I’m currently revisiting my youth by rereading, for the first time in years, my collection of Doc Savage paperback reprints from the old pulp magazines. I have about a fourth of the initial run of paperback reprints and will be adding to them as I go.



How did you start your writing career?

This is going to sound a little cheesy, but I actually began one day when I was nineteen years old, back in the early eighties. I was off work one day, kind of bored and couldn’t think of anything to do, so I hauled out my mom’s old Smith Corona typewriter and sat down to write a short story. And so it began.


Tell us about your next release.

My next release should be Private License, number five in the Sam Quinton Private Eye Series. I turned the final manuscript into the publisher about three weeks back and am waiting on edits to start coming my way. Don’t know for absolute, but the first four books in the series all came out in March of their respective years, so as far as I know now this one will be coming out March of next year.
