How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
The Cartel, The Apprentice Volume 1 is one of those novels where the genre is difficult to classify. While primarily science-fiction it contains elements of fantasy, romance and suspense. With space travel and super advanced technology at the center of the story it is definitely science fiction. At the same time, the world of Lilian and Lucius has a distinct mythology and spirituality that is far different from earth’s. The dramatic tension comes from Lilian’s struggle to survive complex intrigue and Lucius’ attempts to become a Master of the Universe.
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Keep writing and keep reading. Pay attention to your reviewers (good and bad) because they will teach you what you need to be better.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The bare bones of The Cartel came to me in a vivid dream. I couldn’t get it out of my head until I started to write it down. Once I started, it kept developing in depth and complexity. To date, I remain a little amazed the complex society of the Twelve Systems and my main characters came out of my imagination.
