What are your top 10 favorite books/authors? 

As a side note, I did, ages ago, did a scholarly education as part of a Phd in Comparative literature. That was before the idea even crossed my mind about writing my own book. I was fascinated with the use of fiction to convey the human experience of time. My project centred on 4 favourites books: The Time Machine, by H.D.Wells, Lost Horizon by James Hilton, Bid Time Return by Richard Matheson and Portrait of Jennie by Robert Nathan.

What kind of research do you do before you begin writing a book? 

Lots of internet research, in books also. I also went through some of my travel diaries, as far as writing craft is concerned I used lots books and article such as those featured by Writers Digest, etc. They are excellent books available for new author who prefer to be, like I am auto didactic instead of studying in a creative program.

Do you see writing as a career? 

I already have a full time career but I noticed when I get engrossed in writing a book time flies and then I would rather devote my time solely on the book then my daytime job.

What do you think about the current publishing market? 

Well, now almost every one who buts a decent book out there can self publish but unless you want to invest a lot of money on promotion, no matter how good the book is, it hard to get visible. Publishing house won’t take a chance on a new author unless you’ve done all the promo for them already or have a huge social media following. I notice that there is also a big market that feed on the hopes and aspiration on new author to “help” them while running a lucrative business on their back.

Do you read yourself and if so what is your favorite genre? 

Romantic thriller and romantic suspense

Do you prefer to write in silence or with noise? Why? 

I prefer to write either in silence or in a coffee shop with an even level distraction and noise.

Do you write one book at a time or do you have several going at a time?

I only write one book at a time but do scribble on occasion ideas or concept for another. When I write a book, a sort of have a love affair with it and it is often one of the first thought in AM and through out the day. It sort of impregnate and color all the period of the research and writing process.

Pen or typewriter or computer?

Actually with this book it usually starts with pen and then type. Holding a pen and gliding it on paper echo more the flow of my though process. However, when the flow come, my rough handwriting becomes even more distorted then usual, the letter become compress and amalgamated to look almost like the work of a stenographer. Needless to say that to read myself and transcribe in type version is often a challenge.

Tell us about a favorite character from a book. 

It would be easy to say the heroine but as a reader, I enjoyed even more Drake because he is the love interest and has a few secrets of his own.

What made you want to become an author and do you feel it was the right decision?

I never wanted to become an author although who wouldn’t dream of seeing their book on the shelf of a book store? I think writing Express Pursuit was a great experience and I took it almost like an academic project. I got the spark on an idea for the project, studied carefully, applied the excise to do to the project. In a way I consider this debut novel like a graduation dissertation. I have had practice with two Memoirs for Master’s degree and two Phd. scholarly project outline.

Advice they would give new authors? 

Study the craft carefully as you write, do research, submit the outline to a writing coach to make sure your premise is viable, hire a few beta reader and submit the best book you can. Don’t count the hours, do it for your own personal satisfaction and don’t write expecting to make sell. If you aim to sell, be careful not to spend more money of promotion and add then when you actually get in royalties otherwise it just doesn’t make sense.

Describe your writing style. 

I usually start with a concept, work the mechanics of it, then chose the best cast to bring the story to life.
