Q & A TIME!
Q1. Have you ever had to deal with a writer’s block? If so, how did you overcome it?
A.Yes everyone gets writers block every now and then.At least that's what I believe. I overcome writers block by going for a ride on my motorcycle. It clears my head because I have to pay attention to the road and nothing else.When I get home I can get back to work and usually I am able to just jump right back in.
Q2. How often do you write?
A.I try to write every day. It takes me about 6 months to complete my books but that is because I like to edit, re-edit, and re-edit again.
Q3. What inspired your latest piece?
A.The world today inspired this book. I hear a lot about shutting the borders down and not letting anyone in or out. This book takes it to the extreme but it still is a possibility.
Q4. Favourite Word?

Late in the 21st century, the United Continental States of America (or UCSA), comprising the former USA, Canada and Mexico, is running smoothly: unemployment has been all but eradicated, terrorism is quashed in the country, and internal dissent diminishes by the day. Most people thank President Meyers for this. Many can no longer remember when there was last an election, but as long as he keeps the country safe from the terrorist group Hariq Jihad (‘Fire War’), this seems a small price to pay.
Gunnery Sergeant Anthony Jackson is the model Marine: highly trained, absolutely efficient, and unquestioningly dedicated to his country. The only thing he can conceive of putting before his nation is his family, his wife Courtney and two daughters Maya and MacKenzie. Conscripted into the personal security detail of President Meyers, he begins to get glimpses that not everyone is as content with the current situation as he is, but attributes this to terrorist agitation and fringe lunacy. When his older daughter Maya begins to question the creeping erosion of personal liberties and the revoking of democratic rights, however, he begins to fear for her safety, as well as his own and that of his family. In a climate in which entire families disappear due to minor offenses, one can’t be too careful.
The tensions between liberty and safety, between family and country, will force Jackson to rethink all his beliefs, and lead to a collision with the system he has dedicated his life to serving.
Fire War is a suspenseful, gripping and unnerving examination of the paradoxes of power, the price of liberty, and the dictates of conscience. The world you live in will never look the same again.
