Describe your book Breakdown in ten words or less
A post-apocalyptic story of love and redemption, not zombies.
Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?
Years ago I had an incredibly vivid dream of a short scene: a man and his son walking through a market in a city that had begun to crumble, yet the people were persevering.
That dream stayed with me, and I wrote a short story about it. Eventually, I added characters and background, and expanded the story into a novel.
Which of your characters is closest to your heart and why?
The main character, Chris, has a lot of me in him. While his main grief–the loss of his wife and child–is not one I’ve experienced, his secondary loss of a deep childhood friendship is something I struggled with for many years.
Do you have a day job? If yes, tell us about it and how did that affect your writing / publishing process?
My day job is making costumes. I work from home and sell medieval costumes at fairs, and I sell biblical Nativity costumes for Christmas plays. I have my busy times and my slow times. The build-up to Christmas is so hectic for me, I rarely have time to write from about October to about mid-December. NaNOWriMo is a no-go for me.
Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about
My novella “The Work of the Devil” will be released by 47North on October 16. It’s another post-apocalyptic, but entirely different from Breakdown. This one has more of a horror element to it.
Breakdown (published under 47North) is available on Amazon in a variety of formats (Kindle, Paperback, Audiobook).
