The Second Coming Trilogy is my fourth published book and even though theothers are action style fiction I try to create original stories and stayaway from the mainstream.

A: My favorite author has always been Steven King as both a writer and apersonal example to me.
I have just finished a novel titled Heartless written by Stephen Doyleanother iuniverse author. It was very good and could compete with Grisham.

Q: What has the Internet meant for you as an author?

A: The internet at this time has helped me spread the word. I am waitingto see if it has helped with sales. I know that by joining some of theauthors groups I have gained 100 or so more web page hits a day. If thesefolks are ordering the book remains to be seen.
