5 Questions

Today I’m thrilled to welcome indie children’s author MJ Ware 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!

Tribe by James Bruno

Describe your book Zack & Zoey’s Alien Apocalypse -or- Alien Busting Ninja Adventure for Reluctant Readers (Z&Z Book 1) in ten words or less

Kids take on human gobbling aliens armed with only umbrellas.

Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?

It was one of those rare instances when an idea pops into your head and just sort of writes itself. I wrote it in a week with no outline.

What was your favorite part to write and why?

I had lots of fun writing the scene where Sunny has to stick her hand down an alien’s nose (way down).

My favorite paragraph:

“With a long, drawn out sucking sound, Sunny pulled her hand out of the monster’s nasal passage. Glops of green, stringy snot slid down her arm in gooey, sticky strands.”

Do you have a day job? If yes, tell us about it and how did that affect your writing / publishing process?

Yes, I own a business building classic video arcades. Anyone who’s owned a business knows it takes long hours; sixty hours is a light week. So, I do most of my writing after midnight.

Of course being the boss, I can occasionally ditch work to spend the day writing.

Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about

My next book is Zack & Zoey’s second installment; it’s about the kids getting trapped in a theme park, and pulled into the future where they are chased by evil robots. Their only way home is to team up with one of their grown-up classmates and defeat an evil corporate overlord.

Bonus Question! Fill in the blank: If you like ___, you’ll probably like my book too!

I aspire to have all the action of Rick Riordan’s Lightning Thief, but with illustrations and layout like Wimpy Kid–geared for reluctant readers. That’s an extremely high bar, but as long as kids enjoy my books, I’ll be happy.
