An Interview with Author A.H. Richardson

A H RichardsonWe had the pleasure of interviewing A.H. Richardson – author of the Jorie series, a series of children’s chapter books, which includes Jorie and the Magic Stones, Jorie and the Gold Key, and Jorie and the River of Fire. She has also written several murder mysteries, including Murder in Little ShendonAct One, Scene One – MurderThe Murder at Serenity Farm, and Murder on Baringo Island.

Do you have a favorite quote from your book?
I do have a favourite quote, the truth is I have quite a few, but the one I think I like the most, and one I hope that youngsters reading this book will espouse, is where the Great Wizard Grootmonya thanks the children and tells them: “You have shown immense loyalty, courage, duty and responsibility, for one so young. You will go far in life with these qualities.” This summed up the Great Wizard’s appreciation for their exploits, and his recognizing that they were brave and wonderful children.
As a child, what did you want to do when you grew up?
What did I want to do as a child? Good gracious!  My aspirations were legion.  I wanted to be a vet, I wanted to be a painter (a great one), I wanted to be a writer … but what I most wanted to be was… (hang on to your hats here, folks!) — was a movie star, Capital M and capital S!
When did you write your first book and how old were you?
I am embarrassed to say that, other than essays and compositions written at school, which according to the nuns, (yes, I was educated at a convent) showed enormous talent!  My first book was written when I was (slight drum roll here) 74!  I know, I know, you’re thinking ‘aren’t you a bit long in the tooth to start a writing career?’  Actually one does one’s best thinking when one is just slightly older, only because we can really allow our imagination to take wing in a way that wouldn’t have been possible earlier … at least, that is my personal experience.
How did you begin writing? Did you intend to become an author, or do you have a specific reason or reasons for writing each book?
The idea for this book had been cooking in my ‘noggin’ (cute British word for brain) for a long time, and I made myself promises that I WOULD write it at some point.  When I bought my snug little mountain house in Tennessee, I finally had some time … and that was all it took.  Just time, and a keyboard, and unleash that wild imagination, and let it romp! Becoming an author took a gradual sort of state of mind … once it got a hold of me, I really couldn’t let go.  Once I created ‘Jorie’ I realized that she could not just have one book, so I wrote a second ‘Jorie and the Gold Key’, and am working on a third, which is almost done.  The other genre I love, is writing murder mysteries, all with a British flavor, as they take place in cute little English villages, where there is more scandal and skullduggery (I LOVE that word) than you can imagine, and I have written three of those.
Do you like to create books for adults, youth and/or children? and Why?
I do enjoy writing for adults, and the who-dun-it has always appealed to me – I think we write about what we know.  Wait a minute, don’t think that I know a lot about murder, dear me ‘no’, but I do know about little villages in England, and there is something about trying chase down the wicked and the vile that is so much fun.   As for writing for children, I am strictly speaking not a grown-up yet myself, and it is not one of my goals!  You write so much better, when you can hold on to your childhood!
How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?
I have written almost six books, and it is hard to choose a favourite.  Possibly ‘Jorie and the Magic Stones’ takes the blue ribbon, after all, it is the first-born.  Among the murder mysteries, I loved writing ‘Act One, Scene One, Murder.’  Having had an interesting life in the theatre, I feel very at home writing about actors and all their nutty idosyncrasies!
How long does it take you to write a book?
It takes me about three months to write a book, because once I start, I just go!
What does your family think of your writing?
Family is very supportive of the writing, and think that mum is ‘a genius’ – I have educated them well!
What do you like to do when you’re not writing?
When I am not writing, I am painting.  On Canvas, on plywood, and they are mostly wild looking landscapes, and I paint with a palette knife.
What do you think makes a good story?
Fabulous, believable, irritating, funny, scary and wonderful characters.
What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating/writing your books? 
Trust your instincts, they are nearly always spot on.
What authors do you like to read? What book or books have had a strong influence on you or your writing?
I loved the Bronte sisters, absolutely magnificent writers, and W. Somerset Maugham, and the indomitable Agatha Christie. AND Shakespeare, I did almost all his plays in England.
Do you hear from your readers much? What kinds of things do they say?
Readers tend to ask, “How do you manage to imagine all that stuff?” This is usually a huge compliment.
What’s more important: characters or plot?
Make your characters jump out of the pages; yes, you should have a good plot, but you hold your readers’ interest with the characters I believe.
Any writing rituals?
Rituals, well I don’t sacrifice a goat or anything before I begin … usually two cups of coffee, put on makeup (most important) love my two pugs, then sit and write.
Readers, I would say this, read read, and read, and IF you want to write, then do it … it takes determination, patience, drive and undying enthusiasm.
Any last thoughts for our readers?
Thanks you for your kind invitation to chat a little here.
I loved writing, even as a fairly young child, and was an observer and an absorber, and a born mimic, all of which served me in some way to become a writer later in my life.
Quite obviously, if you are writing a work of fiction, a theme of some kind is important — you have a beginning, a middle and an end, and ideally interesting things happen in between.  I can only speak from personal experience here; the characters in your book move the story along, and they must have the appearance of being absolutely real, if they are not believable, you will lose your reader, who will be uninvolved, uninterested and most likely feel rather cheated.
Hamlet is a marvelous play, with fabulous prose, wonderful imagery and so on … but it is the actors that bring the play to life … and so it is when you write a book.   What would happen without the actors or characters?   They move thee vents, they shock you, they frighten you, they make you laugh, they involve you (or they should). They should be your primary concern and motivation.  I would also say make your characters as three dimensional as you can; the villain should have a soft side somewhere, the hero should not be a paragon of virtue all the time, and your comic character should have a sad or serious side.   This is what makes your ‘people’ jump off the pages of your book and grab your reader!
If you decide to take the plunge and write a book, fiction here, think back to the past to people you remember, someone you worked for, someone you were married to, a teacher, a supermarket manager, someone who had characteristics that you remember; take some of these qualities (or faults) and build a character.  In other words steal bits and [pieces of the remembered person, mix them up a bit (rather like making a cake!) then create your person for the book, and see how real they become, Your reader must suspend their disbelief,  and really get into the book …  that is when you have a happy reader. Most of my characters are bits and pieces of folks I have known, but not necessarily loved!
Lastly, write because you love it, that’s the only reason to do it, and if there’s another reason, then you will be found out!
Thanks for so patiently reading and listening, I wish you all good things

 

An Interview with Author Iain Reading

Author Iain ReadingWe had the pleasure of interviewing Iain Reading – who is best known for the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series, a young adult series of adventure mystery stories. He is also the author of the dragon of the month club, a middle grade fantasy series, and The Wizards of Waterfire.

At what point did you consider yourself a full time writer?
Hmmmmm.  I suppose once I finished the SECOND Kitty Hawk book and put it out there, then maybe I knew that I was an author for-real.
Do you have a writing routine?
I have a dream of a writing routine….  it would consist of renting an apartment somewhere exotic and going for walks every day and night to figure things out in my head and then sitting down in-between to actually write.  Otherwise, at home I suppose I sort of do the same, in-between those annoying things like my day-job and life, etc.
How long does it take you to write a book?
The actual writing has sometimes been very fast – a matter of weeks, on occasion.  But thinking things through and figuring everything out BEFORE setting pen to paper takes a lot longer.
Do you research settings, characters types, or topic for your works?
For the Kitty Hawk series (where she’s flying around the world) I DEFINITELY do research for settings.  My favourite thing is to make an excuse for myself to actually visit a place that Kitty Hawk will be visiting and have a vacation under the guise of “book research”.
Do you belong to a writing group or do you have trusted others who read your drafts?
I have a couple of trusted friends who I have read my books and give me feedback.  But to be clear, these are VERY trusted friends – not even necessarily close friends – but when it comes to books and editting they are in the VERY trusted category.
Do you have books you read for inspiration?
There is a lot of history in the Kitty Hawk series, so I read a lot of history books to learn and research.
Do you write in multiple genres?
Yes and no.  Yes in the sense that “urban fantasy” is a different genre than “young adult mystery – female sleuths”.  But no in the sense that they are all kind of young adult to adult books.
Do you ever have epiphanies while writing?
Definitely yes!  There have been times where I’ve stopped in mid-sentence and thought…  what?!!???  In an unpublished fantasy book of mine I was busy writing away and trying to hook the main character up with a boy from another school nearby.  And suddenly, the next thing I knew was realizing…. wait….. is he the BAD GUY?!???
What do your novels start with, a plot, a character, a central question?
I think mostly they start with a character, followed by plot and if I’m lucky there might arise a question in there somewhere.
Do you see reoccurring themes in your fiction?
Exploration seems to be a recurring theme.  My Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency series focuses on a young female pilot who has decided to fly around the world.  She visits different places and solves mysteries.  And in the process she explores the world and readers explore with her.  Similarly, in my Dragon Of The Month Club series the two main characters explore a world of books, drawn from real life books.  It’s almost like Kitty Hawk as they travel from one book world to the next, exploring.
Do you have a favorite book out of the books you have written?
My current favourite is The Dragon Of The Month Club – followed close second by Kitty Hawk and the Tragedy of the Titanic.
What is the story of getting your first book published? Did you have an agent, did you send to multiple publishers, etc.
Sadly, no publishers or agents were ever interested so I had to publish my books myself.  A proud self-publisher, am I.
What questions do you frequently get from teacher and librarians? From students?
One of the most common questions is what inspired me to write.  And the answer is the main character of my first series – Kitty Hawk.  It was this character and her ambitious plans to fly around the world that really inspired me.  I could see that there was a lot of adventures out there waiting for her, so I had to actually write them in order to find out what happened.
What do you try to accomplish when you visit schools or conferences?
My main goal is always to connect with people, particularly anyone who is interested in my books or has enjoyed reading them, or who is interested in trying to do what I am doing – writing and self-publishing books.
What jobs did you do before becoming a writer and do any of them influence how or what you write?
I’ve had a lot of jobs.  McDonalds.  Pizza Hut.  Right now I work for the United Nations.  That is my “day job” for the moment.
Do you have any advice or suggestion for other writers?
My advice (for whatever it’s worth) is always this:  Write the book you’re capable of writing – don’t try to write a book you are not capable of writing.
Do you get many letters or emails from your readers?
Never enough of them!  Send me more!  I always try to respond.
What book have you read over the last year that seems to stick with you?
Stephen King’s The Shining.  I had never read it before and had the misfortune to read it while staying in a big hotel in Toronto where the closet had a light inside that randomly switched on and off in the middle of the night, thus totally freaking me out.  That experience led to me re-reading Stephen King’s Pet Sematary, and I was very interested to read in his new foreward to the book that this was the book he thought was his most scary.
What question would you love to be asked about your work that no one thinks to ask?
I think I’d like to be asked whether I would recommend the process of writing and self-publishing to people.  Because the answer would absolutely be yes.  I think that anyone who has a book inside them waiting to come out should go for it.  Write it.  And that’s not to say just write it and throw it out there.  But put some work into it.  And heart into it.  And yes, money into it, and make it the best book you can possibly do.  And don’t worry if it’s not timeless fiction for the ages.  Write the book you can write.

Interview with Ed Duncan, Author of Pigeon Blood Red

Pigeon-Blood RedTell us a little about yourself, your work and how you got into writing.
I retired in 2012 after 37 years as a practicing lawyer at a national law firm in Cleveland.  I’ve always liked to write and in 2008 I wrote a legal text entitled Ohio Insurance Coverage which I updated annually through 2012.  My practice involved a good deal of writing as well.  But what I really wanted to do was write crime fiction, so I retired a little early to do that and to travel.
The idea for Pigeon-Blood Red came to me while attending a legal seminar in Honolulu years ago.  As I pictured the novel then, it was far from complete.  The only thing I saw in my mind’s eye was a beautiful, mysterious woman in danger and on the run and a stranger (a lawyer, of course) coming to her rescue (or trying to).  In the final version of the novel, Evelyn, the woman, and Paul, the lawyer, are not strangers but, instead, are long lost friends who haven’t seen each other since college.  Back then he was smitten by her but she was swept off her feet by Robert, the deeply flawed man who eventually became her husband.
While Paul and Evelyn continue to be pivotal characters in the novel, despite my best efforts to prevent him from doing so, Rico, the man from whom Evelyn is fleeing, becomes the focal point of the story. He is an underworld enforcer in pursuit of Robert, who stole a pigeon-blood red ruby necklace worth millions.  He follows his prey from Chicago to Honolulu and back, but the chase goes sideways after he develops a grudging respect for Paul and Evelyn, who accidentally become embroiled in the crime.  The hardened hitman must decide whether to follow orders and kill them or spare them and endanger the life of the woman he loves.
If you were to create a writing soundtrack, what artists would be on it?
I’m a big fan of both rhythm and blues and jazz but I like music from all genres.  As Duke Ellington once said, “If it sounds good, it is good.”  That said, (showing my age) I think I would include The Temptations, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, and Frank Sinatra as the artists who would be on my writing soundtrack.
How do you come up with the character names in your books? 
The characters in my novel are interracial.  I try to think of a few unusual names but ones that fit. The black characters are middle class professionals, so those are fairly standard, although I used my high school year book to come up with a couple of last names.  “Paul” is the name of my best friend in elementary and high school, and “Elliott,” Paul’s last name, is the name of a biology teacher at my high school.  I borrowed “Evelyn” from the tragic lead character in Chinatown, a movie I admire a lot.  “Rico,” the name of the underworld enforcer, just popped into my head.  Rico’s boss’s last name, “Lyptak,” is a variation of “Rybak,” the name of someone I worked with in the steel mill in the summers when I was in college.  When I’m stuck, sometimes I look for interesting names in the phone book.
Have you ever written yourself or people you know as a character in one of your books?
The lawyer is meant to be a highly idealized version of me.  He’s taller, younger, smarter, braver, better looking, and more athletic, but he has my values and ethics. 
Is anything in your book based on real life experiences? 
Some of the incidents in the book are based on real life experiences.  For instance, the childhood fight Paul remembers actually happened in about the way it’s described.  Also, the telephone call Paul receives when he’s a young lawyer actually took place, as did the trial he recalls.
What is the best piece of advice you ever received from another author? 
Never hesitate to take a writer up on his offer for advice.
Do you have any advice for other writers?
Never give up based solely on rejections from agents.  As most of them freely admit, they are often wrong. Try to get an objective reading from someone whose opinion you trust.
Who are you reading right now?
I’m always reading the latest Jack Reacher novel by Lee Child.  I take one with me whenever I go on vacation.  I recently went to a mystery writers convention and picked up Blue Heaven by C.J. Box and Burned by Valerie Plame.  They are my next projects when I can find some time. I’m also reading a nonfiction book about the last year of World War II in the Pacific, Retribution by Max Hastings and Devil in the Grove by Gilbert King, which chronicles the harrowing exploits of Thurgood Marshall defending black men in the South, many wrongly accused.
What’s next, do you already have a new project in the works? 
I’m working on the second novel in the trilogy that began with Pigeon-Blood Red.  Originally it was titled Red Autumn but I’m working on trying to come up with a new title.
Do you ever suffer from writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it?
Fortunately, I haven’t suffered from writer’s block thus far.  There are certainly times when the words come too slowly.  I can usually cure that problem by stepping away from the work for a few days. 
What tools have you found most successful in advertising/marketing yourself and your books?
I read numerous self-help articles and a few books but I found the task of following the advice given to be too daunting, not to mention time-consuming.  My advice to others who have a similar experience is to hire a good publicist, as I did.  It has made life so much simpler. 
Did any specific author(s) motivate you to begin writing?
The author who motivated me to begin writing was Dashiell Hammett and the novel was The Maltese Falcon.  The scene where Spade explains to Brigid O’Shaughnessy why he won’t “play the sap for her” and why he’s “sending her over” for murdering his partner, although he may love her and she may love him, is masterfully written, and I reread it whenever I need inspiration or just want to appreciate riveting dialogue.
You are hosting a dinner party and must invite 3 famous people. Who would you choose and why?
If I were hosting a dinner party and had to invite 3 famous people, I would invite President Obama, Colin Powell, and James McPherson.  The President’s story is remarkable (a bonus is he’s an excellent writer), and to be able to talk to him about his life experiences and the decisions he’s made during his presidency would be endlessly fascinating.  The same could be said of Colin Powell, his life story, and his experiences as a White House advisor and as Secretary of State.  I am a Civil War buff and James McPherson is one of the nation’s most renowned experts on that conflict.  I’ve read some of his work but would love to pick his brain further.

Interview with Cara MacMillan, Author of It Is Only Money

It Is Only Money Book Cover
We had the pleasure of interviewing Cara MacMillan, the author of It Is Only Money and It Grows on Trees!a narrative that explores how the concept of money differs throughout various world religions and cultures.

 

How did you begin writing? Did you intend to become an author, or is there any other reason?
In business, we need to communicate, writing to me is another communication tool.
Tell us about It Is Only Money. How would you describe the book to someone?
It is a parable. It tries to explain the universal and cultural laws of money in a story that people can understand and apply.
What brought you to write It Is Only Money? Where’d you get the idea?
This is actually a very difficult question. The truth is I don’t know. I have always written for business but this book came from the heart. I just felt that I had to share the information in a way that could spark an understanding in my students.
What were the challenges in writing this book?
Time. I needed to be away from the business vocabulary in order to speak and translate many of the concepts into everyday language.  I completed the book when I took a sabbatical and immersed myself in nature.
What was your favorite chapter (or part) to write and why? 
My favorite character is Mary. She is a role model to many of us on how to live abundantly and to always remember that It Is Only Money.
Is there a message in your novel that you hope readers will grasp?
“Enjoy the journey to sustainable wealth!”
What are you reading right now? Are there any authors that you would name as influences?
My go to reading when I am busy balancing family, work and me is poetry. Right now I am reading the works of William Butler Yeats. My favourite poem so far is Lake Isle of Innisfree.
How hard is it to establish and maintain a career in writing? Do you have any advice for other writers?
Perseverance. Do not listen to the people who say “You? You can’t!” Those people are speaking out loud to themselves. Speak out loud to yourself and say, “Yes I can.”
What’s next for you? What are you working on now?
My next book will be Make Big Money and Make a Big Difference. It will be a guide to  investing to ensure that we put our money into investments that share our values.
Any last thoughts for our readers?
Have faith and be confident. Only good things happen.

 

It Is Only Money and It Grows on Trees! was published by Halcyon Consulting Publication in October 2015. The story takes place in a classroom where a teacher named Catherine has written the word, Money, in large capital letters on the blackboard. She invites her students to help her define what money is. The students propose varying answers, and Catherine explains how each of these different definitions comes from our cultural, religious, family, and economic backgrounds.
“It Is Only Money is a well-written and imaginative multi ethnic and multi-cultural look at acquiring wealth. I loved the give and take between Catherine, the teacher, and the diverse group of students who are in her class. Through this device, the author explores the role of money in Hindu, Christian, Jewish, Muslim and other religions, and discusses how the biblical story, The Parable of the Talents, can be used as a way to explore one’s own talents and ability to actively make money. MacMillan’s thoughts on passive income streams, investments, and finding one’s passion as opposed to merely doing a job one hates are well-presented… It Is Only Money is highly recommended.” Readers’ Favorite
“The story keeps your interest, while the classroom stories and discussion will keep you thinking. If you are looking for a break from the normal personal finance book, with ‘how to’ steps I would suggest It Is Only Money.”Debt Discipline
“Honestly, this is one of the only books that deals with finance and money that I could not only read cover to cover, but also understood and enjoyed reading…Totally a five-star book!” – Dhwani Swadia, There and Their

Interview with Iain Reading, Author of the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series

author Iain ReadingIain Reading is the author of the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series, a young adult series of adventure mystery stories. The series follows Kitty Hawk, an intrepid teenage pilot with her own De Havilland Beaver seaplane and a nose for mystery and intrigue. A cross between Amelia Earhart, Nancy Drew and Pippi Longstocking, Kitty is a quirky young heroine with boundless curiosity and a knack for getting herself into all kinds of precarious situations. There are currently four books in the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series: Kitty Hawk and the Curse of the Yukon Gold (book 1), Kitty Hawk and the Hunt for Hemingway’s Ghost (book 2), Kitty Hawk and the Icelandic Intrigue (book 3), and Kitty Hawk and the Tragedy of the RMS Titanic (book 4).
Your novels, what are some hopes or goals you have for them? 
If I may be a bit ambitious, I would actually think that the first book of the Kitty Hawk series would make a pretty good Disney-type movie.  All the elements are there, plus it would have some amazing outdoor scenery.  I won’t be waiting by the phone for that one, however.
On a more realistic note, I suppose that my goals are much the same as anyone who writes books.  I’d like people to read and enjoy them.  They are meant to be fun, so I would hope that people would have fun reading them.  And last of all, since my books are full of all sorts of interesting locations and events and history, I always hope that in the process of reading my books that people would find that kind of stuff interesting.  If they go to Google and search something from one of my books, then that’s a great success, I think.
How did you come up with the concept for the Kitty Hawk Flying Detective Agency Series?
It all started with just one simple thing.  The main character.  Once I thought of her, this teenaged pilot with her own seaplane, everything else just fell into place.  In fact, with the idea hanging out there in the universe and not being written was enough of a kick in the butt for me to get going and actually write the first book.
What three words would you say describe Kitty Hawk and the Curse of the Yukon Gold? 
Mysterious Fun Adventure
What is something readers would be surprised to learn about Kitty Hawk and the Curse of the Yukon Gold?
Without giving too much away, I think people might be surprised to learn exactly how much of the smaller details and background history in the story is actually real and based on people, places and events that actually really happened.  (I don’t mean the Yukon Gold Rush, of course.  Obviously that happened, but many of the much smaller details that weave their way through the whole story.)  This is something that surprises me, to be honest, when I sit back and really think about it.
Who is your favorite character in Kitty Hawk and the Curse of the Yukon Gold and why?
My favourite character is Kitty Hawk.  How could it be anyone else, I guess.  This is her story and her adventure that she calls her life.  I look up to her a lot and often find myself wishing I could be flying around the world right alongside her.  But I suppose in a way that’s exactly what myself and anyone who reads the books is doing.
What are some of your other interests besides writing?
I have always wanted to be a musician.  I write songs and record them.  So if anyone is interested in that they can have a listen for free at www.SecretWorldOnline.com
If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go?
Wherever it would be you can be sure that a Kitty Hawk adventure based in that place would soon follow.
If you could spend the day with someone (Dead or Alive) who would it be?
That’s a tie between Roger Waters and Taylor Swift (and yes, I just put those two names together in the same sentence).
Do you have any other books in the works? 
I am currently working on the fifth book in the Kitty Hawk series, which should be released soon.
What advice would you give to other people who want to become writers?
I don’t think there can be any better advice than to say to “just do it”.  Go out and write the book that you are able to write and not try to write anything else.  If you’re like me and try to do differently you’ll procrastinate endlessly and never write anything.

Interview with Author Claudia Y. Burgoa
Tell us about your new book:
Getting By is the first book of the Knight’s Tales series. They tell the story of three handsome successful brothers that rather get a root canal than getting serious with a girl.
GB introduces us to Jake, Mitch and Liam; while telling us the story between Jake and Emma; two people that like to have a light relationship but are afraid of something more.
Who is your favorite character from your book and why?
That’s a difficult question, since I love them all. However, I can say Mitch is the one that has my undivided love. He’s fun, and likes to pull everyone’s leg at every turn.
What is your favorite scene in the book and why?
The elevator scene, when you get a glimpse of a closet hardcore fangirl and how the fact that she’s a little out there gets Jake’s attention.
Give us an interesting fun fact about your book:
Gabriela is based on one of my best friends, the loud fire cracker get in your face attitude. Though physically they are like day and night, my friend is tall, blond and blue eyed…and she’s not a cheater ;)
Tell us a bit about yourself:
I’m terrible when it comes to talk about myself… I love music—most of it and especially alt rock. I can watch episodes of Friends every day for the rest of my life, watch movies and love everything superhero related. My superpower is to know everything or make up something for the lack of knowledge.
I have three children, three dogs and only one superhero husband.
What’s next? What can we expect from you in the future?
Next to You, the sequel to Where Life Takes You, my first published book; I plan on releasing it on June.
Standing By, the second book on the Knight’s Tale series is being written and hopefully it will be published late summer.
What to expect in the future…more Romance books, and on 2015 a New Adult Fantasy book.
What book are you reading now?
Red Moon by Benjamin Percy
