‘5 Questions’ with Daron D. Fraley
Today I’m thrilled to welcome indie author Daron D. Fraley to the blog as part of the ‘5 Questions’ with authors series!
If you are an author who would like to participate in the series, fill out the questionnaire here! And if you are a reader who wants to suggest an author for the series, just send me an email!
Describe your book ‘Thirty-Six‘ in ten words or less
Thirty-Six: Aaron Cohen and the Legend of the Lamed Vovniks
Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?
I wanted to meld an ancient legend with a contemporary setting.
My research turned up the Jewish legend of the Thirty Six Hidden Righteous, or the Lamed Vovniks. Add a helping of suspense, sprinkle with some romantic tension, hint at some mystery, and then you get Thirty-Six.
What was your favorite part to write and why?
My favorite part to write was the reveal at the end of the book because I think a lot of people will be surprised by it.
Do you have a day job? If yes, tell us about it and how did that affect your writing / publishing process?
Speculative fiction writer by night, Senior Data Center Engineer by day. I work in computer data centers with a focus on server and storage virtualization. Because of the day job (which pays the bills), all of my writing is done in the evening. I miss sleep.
Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about
Although not the only project I am working on, the Thirty-Six series is the most exiting project I am involved in right now. It’s a multi-author series, so there will be other stories coming, from some very talented authors.
Bonus Question! Fill in the blank: If you like ___, you’ll probably like my book too!
The Way of Kings, by Brandon Sanderson
