𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙄 𝙬𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙚: I have been fortunate to write multiple genres, but I always come back to thrillers. I like mixing thrillers with action, mystery, crime, adventure. Fun stuff.
𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙄 𝙧𝙚𝙖𝙙: I read thrillers, sci-fi, comics, media tie-ins, and pretty much anything that grabs my attention. If I fall in love with a character, I’ll be back for the entire series.
𝙁𝙖𝙫𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝙘𝙝𝙖𝙧𝙖𝙘𝙩𝙚𝙧𝙨: Harry Bosch, Maggie O’Dell, Alex Cross, Dianne Fallon, Domino Lady, Thor, Captain America, Buck Rogers, Flash Gordon, Shane Scully, the list could go on and on…
𝙒𝙝𝙖𝙩 𝙥𝙚𝙤𝙥𝙡𝙚 𝙘𝙖𝙣 𝙚𝙭𝙥𝙚𝙘𝙩 𝙛𝙧𝙤𝙢 𝙢𝙮 𝙨𝙩𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙚𝙨: I like my stories to move. Character is key so I get to know them first. Dropping my characters into an action/thriller plot and seeing how they get out of it is my favorite thing.
𝙃𝙖𝙥𝙥𝙞𝙡𝙮 𝙚𝙫𝙚𝙧 𝙖𝙛𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙚𝙣𝙙𝙞𝙣𝙜?: Sometimes. Yeah. Not always though.
𝙋𝙡𝙤𝙩𝙩𝙚𝙧 𝙤𝙧 𝙥𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙨𝙚𝙧: I’m somewhere in the middle. I have a very loose plot. I know certain things that have to happen, but I let the characters determine how we get there. This allows for some interesting character developments and even a few twists and surprises. I can’t stand the word “Plantser” so I joke that they call me Captain Plotty-Pants!
𝙋𝙪𝙗𝙡𝙞𝙨𝙝𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙜𝙤𝙖𝙡𝙨: I’m a hybrid author. I write for publishers and also have my own indie press, BEN Books. I am working to make BEN Books grow, but I still enjoy working with publishers as well, especially when writing characters I don’t own. One of my long-term goals is that I would like to see the words “New York Times Bestselling Author” appear before my name.
𝙁𝙖𝙫𝙤𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙚 𝙖𝙪𝙩𝙝𝙤𝙧𝙨: That could be a long list. I’ll keep it short. Michael Connelly, Alex Kava, Gary Phillips, Van Allen Plexico, Beverly Connor, Michael Crichton, Ed Brubaker, Paul Bishop, and more. Many more.
𝙒𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙥𝙚𝙧𝙨𝙤𝙣𝙖𝙡𝙞𝙩𝙮: Writer like the wind.
𝙒𝙧𝙞𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙜 𝙩𝙤𝙤𝙡𝙨: I’m a simple guy. I write in MS Word on my laptop.
