2. Where did the idea come from for the book?
The idea came from a writing exerise I did a few years ago. I looked at a picture and then jotted down a short story from what I saw in the picture. Later the idea bloomed into a bigger story.
3. What genre does your book fall under?
4. Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?
When I first started writing this story, I don't know why but a younger version of Tom Welling from Smallville kept popping into my head for my main character Tom.
5. What is the one sentence synopsis of your book?
A teenage boy discovers his parents have kept secrets from him that lead him into danger.
6. Will your book be self published or represented by an agency?
I hope when I finish this story that my publisher Muse It Up Publishing, who has published my first novel Ghostly Clues, will publish this one as well.
7. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
I can't answer that question right now because I'm still in the process of writing the first draft. As of right now, I'm not sure of the ending.
8. What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
I'm a big fan of R. L. Stine. So I would have to say maybe one of his books from the Goosebump series.
9. Who or what inspired you to write this book?
I would have to say my sons are a great inspiration for my writing. Even though two of my sons are adults, they still inspire me. This story was more inspired by my 13 year old son. He has a wild imagination.
10. What else about your book might pique the reader's interest?
This story holds a lot of interesting characters and a lot of bad things they come across like bad guys, witches, ghosts, demons, and maybe something I haven't even thought of yet.
I hoped you enjoyed this interview. Now it's time to get back to working on Family Secret. Hopefully soon you will see it out in book stores.
