What are your goals as a writer? To entertain and inspire and to learn more as I write.
What books have most influenced your life? That is very difficult to say, but certainly they have all contributed to what I have become both as an individual and as a writer.
Who is your favorite author and why? I would have to say Dumas because of the result and he is basically the inventor of popular novels.
Can we expect any more books from you in the future? Yes, countless to come, “God willing and the creek don’t rise.”
Have you started another book yet? I have 5 in the works.
Where do you see yourself in five years? I would see my progress according to the number of books published and to what extent they have been enjoyed.
Are there any new authors that have sparked your interest and why? Yes, there are many I have noticed on Goodreads, but haven't found the time to delve into their works yet hope to do so sooner than later.
What are some of the best tools available today for writers, especially those just starting out? I would say the vast resources on the Internet, as you can meet so many people and use so many services for free such as Createspace.
What contributes to making a writer successful? Hard work –both writing and advertising if success means popularity.
Do you have any advice for writers? Don't lose faith and don't be disturbed by critics, but learn from what they have to say without losing heart.
What dreams have been realized as a result of your writing? I am living my dream.
Do you have any upcoming appearances that you would like to share with us? I was thinking of sending out people with anonymous masks to go to book signings to sign as the Holy Ghost Writer, but haven’t figured out the logistics yet.
If you could leave your readers with one bit of wisdom, what would you want it to be? Believe in yourself. You can achieve whatever you set out to do it you are persistent. If you are an author or have to read criticism of your works, remember what a great, recently departed author said about critics, "If they knew what they were talking about they would be writing their own books."
The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo is a continuation of The Count of Monte Cristo (Book I), related through the voice of Sherlock Holmes and The Sultan of Monte Cristo (Book II). It includes exhilarating new adventures, characters, and ideas, carrying the reader past book I and II and into book III of an ever-expanding new series based on the classic.
Those who have already had the pleasure of reading The Sultan of Monte Cristo will certainly appreciate the unique way in which the Holy Ghost Writer has expanded the original story without the help of anyone (except perhaps from the ghosts of Dumas and Doyle).
In addition to comprising a 3rd sequel to The Count of Monte Cristo, The Sovereign Order of Monte Cristo serves as a prequel to The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes.
