Sometimes stuff happens and this time a lot of stuff happened. Real life can be difficult between working your way through problems to being sick or helping others who are sick, it delays things, like updates to my blog. Sorry for the delay but it really could not be helped.
I am so honored that my friend, Mary D. Brooks has allowed me to present her beloved characters Zoe and Eva in my next radio play for Sherri’s Playhouse. We will be presenting it in mid-July it is called The Widgie Knight. It is a lovely play about survivors and love. Here is your first glimpse at the poster for that production and for future updates please check Sherri’s Playhouse’s page; https://www.facebook.com/Sherris-Playhouse-1415103118746094/ By the way Cat’s Pajama’s is still doing very well on Blogtalk, it has been in the tops in Entertainment for several weeks 🙂

Next is a feature that we have not had in a while, an author interview.
My guest this week is; James Richardson from Blacksburg, SC!
His works include;
Twilight City: Edward the Silver Werewolf (Son’ of Cain series),
Edward must overcome his anger at what’s been done to him. The deaths of his daughter’s haunts his mind throughout the long centuries. He must put all that aside in order to stop the Son’s of Cain from dominating the world of man, and free the long forgotten Cain from his imprisonment.
The Terra Drago Chronicles: The Sacrifice(Reign of Fire series),
Cominus thought he had lost his younger brother, only to find he was in a world where myth and legends walk the land. There he learns of the curse that plagues their bloodline, and that his brother was running out of time as his own curse consumes him. With the help of his brother Cominus they bring an end to a war that has raged on for millennia.
Tell us a bit about yourself and your back ground?
It wasn’t until I red R.A. Salvatore’s The Dark Elf trilogy that I found myself thinking. What if I did this then one day I picked up a pen. The words just flowed onto the paper, within a week I had half of a book done granted it was a rough draft. Let that didn’t stop me from soldering on until I was done. Then something strange happened when I was writing the ending to Terra Drago. Idea’s flowed into my head of future books in that series along with many other’s. That was when I knew being an author was what I wanted to do.
When you go through your need to write time do you make deals with your friends and family?
Not really if they see my noise in a notebook scribbling down a paragraph they know to wait until I’m done. You never know when inspiration will strike!
Does reading a good book ignite your imagination?
Oh most difently sometimes I take on the role of the main character as I read along, or I make another character in my head that travel’s along side the main character. There have been times that I’ve been so engross in a book. That I burst out laughing because my mind came up with a witty remark to the main characters dialogue. Then my family looks at me if I’ve gone insane.
Do you love history? Does it have a part in creating your stories?
Of course, myth and legends of that time I believe make’s a person ask “what if”. What if that legend was true, how would they evolve over the ages. How would their children look like, act like, or simply watched as the flow of time passed. Would they live in the shadows of human civilization or would they take center stage.
Give us a taste of the best part of your book, what do you want readers to take away from the experience?
Well in Twilight City its were Edward was captured sneaking on board the Queen of the West. When I created Jacob to be Edward’s nemesis I didn’t think I would grow to hate my own character. Let when Edward was chained down in the maintenance room on board his ship, and Edward was pounding on Jacob even chained. I was so routing for Edward as Jacob laid on the floor. Then in Terra Drago it’s when Draco and Cominus are on his roof before their trip to Sandsabar. I mean what little boy hasn’t dreamed about having a sword fight with his older brother.
What do you think all the different styles of publishing?
I can’t really say about traditional publishing, I went the self publishing route. I can see the merit’s of both. If an agent contacted me today I probably sign, seeing they have more resources to get my work into reader’s hands then I do a the moment.
What was the biggest satisfaction in completing your book?
It’s when I see the smiles on their faces, the emotion’s that play across their face as the reader’s connect with the characters. For me its not about the money it’s about the world’s I create in my books that allows people to lose themselves if for only a short time.
Tell us a bit about your working on now?
8. Right now I’m working on a book called The Balance: Darkness Unchained. It’s about a fallen god and a Chicago Detective as the race to stop Lucifer’s rising. It should be out within a month or two then off to write the second book for Twilight City.
