1. How did you come up with the title?
Giving the books I write titles seems to be the hardest job for me. I get so caught up in the stories the characters are playing out in front of me that I don't think about it until the end. My publisher guided me through a discovery process that led to the obvious name, Creedor. That makes perfect sense considering the bulk of the action takes place there.
2. Did you learn anything from writing your book and what was it?
I learned that the characters from this series of books - the Reglon Empire Series - are a bit bossy and won't let me do anything else if they have a scene they want me to capture. I also learned that the initial writing is the easy part.
3. How did your interest in writing originate?
I don't remember a time in my life when I wasn't interested in writing. I think my first real writing was a poem I wrote as a child. The theme? Hand-me-downs; it's what I knew.
4. What was the hardest part of writing this book?
The revisions were the hardest for me because I cannot allow the stories the characters gave me to be lost in the rewrite. So far, so good.
5. Is there an important message or theme you want readers to grasp?
Yes. I want my readers to enjoy the story, and I want them to feel the human struggles the characters go through and to see how they deal with them. I suppose if I had to pick one word for the theme, it would be hope.
6. Is there anything specific you want to say to readers?
Yes. I want to thank them and to let them know that Creedor is only the first of five books planned for the Reglon Empire Series. Each book will introduce new characters for them to love - or hate, as the case may be - while revealing more about the lives of the ones they met in Creedor.
7. Who is your favorite author and what strikes you about their work?
I have more than one, but among them are J.R.R. Tolkien, Rudyard Kipling, and J.K. Rowling. My favorite poet is Robert Frost. What strikes me about the first three is their imaginations. As a child reading Tolkien and Kipling, I was able to escape my poverty at least while I was reading. For that, I am eternally grateful. And J.K. Rowling, well her writing rivals my older favorites, but brings in a modern twist that I find immensely appealing. Finally, Frost. I love the simplicity of his poems and delight in how such simple writing can be so deep and thought-provoking.
8. Tell us your latest news.
Well, book 2 (still unnamed) is a continuation of Creedor and is with the editor. Book 3 is about 90% complete. I expect to have at least 4 of the 5 books finished by the end of this year, though I'm not sure how many of them the publisher will launch.
9. What motivated you to write this book?
When my oldest son was a child, he loved for me to tell him stories - the more fantastic, the better. The original idea for this series came to me then, but I only wrote the first 42 pages. Over th
