    Fabulpous interview, John, so many golden rules for new writers and old ones, like me, as well.
    I always learn something from your interviews, that’s a bonus. Lots of luck with your writing in the future.

    Cheers, Margaret.

    Fine interview, John. You, too, Morgen. I now feel as if I know you both from reading this conversation. Bravo, John, on your enormous literary output!

    Hi John and Morgan: What a great post. I enjoyed it. While I write thrillers, I enjoy historical fiction. Love Ken Follett’s new series on the 20th century, and also Jeff Shaara’s series. But I’m still a thriller lover at heart.

    You’re so welcome – thank you everyone for stopping by and especially staying long enough, and feeling passionate enough to comment. It’s a pleasure.

    Enjoyed the interview, John. I wish I was as productive. Do you find that your work with the historical society informs your writing? Historical fiction is always a challenge, but I imagine having that ‘in’ could be of great benefit. For my upcoming Oak Tree Press book, American Caliphate, I set a chapter in sixteenth century Spain, and that was by far the most difficult chapter to write (though hopefully not to read).

      It’s definitely a plus, William. I have access to a ton of research material on varying historical eras. And doing research for others hones my skill in that capacity. I love research, and there’s nothing like on-the-job training.
      Going back as far as the 16th century had to be a challenge, though.

    Morgen love the interview.
    John you are awesome, how many can plot, plan and rewrite in their heads…not me. This is a grand interview, love the history about your life too. Augie

    Both good questions and interesting answers. I’ve got to quit reading so many blogs because I keep finding new books that I know I’ll want to read, which is a compliment, John. Thank you for sharing.

    Great questions and answers! Love you comment about being a pantser, John. You’ve explained exactly how I work too – start with a general idea but enjoy the surprises my characters often give me and the sudden twists I wasn’t expecting.
    Good luck with your recent submission – an sure WCP will snatch it up! .

    John – you are an inspiration. Some days I procrastinate too long – then read something like your interview and the fire returns. thanks

      What a lovely comment, thank you Dac.

      Thanks, Dac. But if you ask my daughter, I’m the King of Procrastinators. What she doesn’t realize is I mainly procrastinate on things I’d rather not do.

    Although I’m also a member of Sunny Frazier’s Posse, I didn’t really know much about John until I read this interview. History and Mystery – what a great combination. Thanks John and Morgen!
