Can you tell me something about yourself?
I have lived my entire life in Tennessee and Georgia, except for one ‘lost summer’ spent in Los Angeles.
What inspired you to write?
I have always written articles on different subjects however Fables of the Reconstruction is my debut novella. Earlier this year I ruptured my Achilles tendon and have had major complications and setbacks to the healing process. So, I’ve had lots of time on my hands to research and write during the last few months.
I’m sorry to hear that Hunter and hope you are well soon.
Who are you favourite authors?
Thanks for asking, it’s just so difficult to choose from so many gifted people. I own more Anne Rice book’s than any other author, so that must mean something.
Can you tell me something about your latest book?
Fables of the Reconstruction is the story of a Belgian pimp, Pierre von Minzle, living in Victorian London with a 'magic' powder, claiming to be undead. He believes in Pomba Gira mysticisms & follows Creole Voodoo. He believes he has found his equal in Mary Montague, and makes her undead, too. The story itself is told from four points of view. There is a modern, surprise twist to the book's ending.
Oh my, this sounds intriguing; I will have to read your novella.
So, how long did it take you to write it?
From the first day writing to the publishing date, Fables of the Reconstruction took ten weeks. The stories were in my imagination, just waiting to be researched and told.
Can you tell us something about the writing process, do you have a set time for writing, did you do any research or anything else of interest that was involved?
I attempt to write 100 words every day. My best writing and ideas seem to present themselves at night. I am a huge history buff and have travelled extensively so that enabled me to have an understanding of the locations created for Fables of the Reconstruction.
What do you think readers will come away with when they have finished your book?
I hope readers will look forward to Book 2 – Reconstruction of the Fables – coming in Spring 2013.
THANK YOU FOR THIS INTERESTING EXCERPT...
Invocation to the Goddess
Pomba Gira is a wonderful Goddess. Treat her with respect and reverence and she will bestow her blessings upon you. A beguiling spirit, Pomba Gira gives comfort to the broken hearted, vengeance for the wronged, and a fierce path for those that will take her as muse.
Pomba Gira is the Goddess of the Night. She is the Goddess of guitars, cemeteries, tombs, streets, crossroads, the soul, and the oceans. There are various manifestations of the Goddess, such as Maria Padilha, Compass Rose, Queen of the Seven Crossroads, Pombagira of Calunga, Pombagira of Souls, Gypsy Pombagira, Pombagira Maria Mulambo, Red Rose, Miss Rosie Skull.
Really, wouldn’t you be disappointed if a girl from Nashville didn’t start her book with a prayer to the Goddess of the guitar?
