Revisit: Who were some of your favorite authors growing up? Interview by learnfreemarketing

I’ve written five books, Murder at the Ocean Forest, The Versailles Conspiracy, The House of Dark Shadows, The Maynwarings: A Game of Chance, and Conversations on the Bench. I’m working on the sixth one, a drama entitled Gems & Jewels. I’ve been asked which one is my favorite many times, but I don’t know that I can say that I favor one over the other. When you’re a writer, each books is a labor of love, they’re like my children. Each one is different, and I love each one of them for what makes them unique.
Murder at the Ocean Forest is my favorite setting, the old Ocean Forest Hotel in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. The book is set at the hotel in the 1940s. The hotel was demolished in the 1970s, so all that is left are a few pictures. I really like how The Versailles Conspiracy and The House of Dark Shadows end. I think the endings are both memorable, and they leave you guessing. The Maynwarings is a mystery and political thriller set in the Old West, so I think that’s a pretty unique spin on a western. You don’t see many westerns anymore in the first place, so it’s special for that reason as well. Conversations on the Bench is special in that it’s a really inspirational book, and it’s about people that I actually know. Few writers get to write an inspirational story about people they know, so it’s unique from that perspective. But what I think is most special about Conversations on the Bench and why it endears itself to me so much is that people can take something away from it, they can learn something from the lessons in it and possibly find inspiration that may change their own lives.
