What authors, or books have influenced you?
David Baldacci, from a scene creation/set-up standpoint is a master in my opinion. With my next project due to be a full-length novel, I am aspiring to get more intricate in the background of characters and scenes, at least to a modicum of his ability. Eric Jerome Dickey’s “Gideon” series (Sleeping With Strangers, Waking With Enemies, Dying For Revenge, Resurrecting Midnight, Finding Gideon) is the proverbial sweet spot for authors who aspire to produce suspense thriller projects, that are also sexy. When I write in that mode, that is definitely a stratosphere I’m shooting for.
What are you working on now?
Currently, I am working on a novel I started during NaNoWriMo last year entitled, PSYCHO. The MC is Basil Cooper, who appears in two of the stories in my Unacceptable Behavior collection. Basil, is a psychologist who hails from a famed football family in the midwest. Looking to find a way to pivot his counseling style closer to the no nonsense, overly direct way that he chooses to view the world, he walks away from the classic by the book method. Opening up his own practice which uses a more hands-on, aggressive style to helping people.
