The Intrepid Men of #eNovAaW~ Author Spotlight




Meet The Intrepid Men of #eNovAaW




Joe B. Parr

Joe B. Parr is a North Texas based Mystery Suspense writer. As a native of the Fort Worth, TX area, his novels are crime dramas based in and around DFW. Residents of the area will enjoy the familiar sights and sounds. For others, he provides a virtual tour highlighting the area’s feel and diversity.

His current releases, The Victim and Stolen Innocence, are available in both paperback and ebook (Kindle) on Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com and selected independent book stores.

He writes entertaining fiction with an undercurrent of social commentary. His books address provocative issues by introducing characters who provide multiple perspectives so that the reader is driven to explore their own thoughts.

In The Victim, those issues include gangs, media stereotypes and the racial tensions within the community. In Stolen Innocence, he highlights the growing issue of Human Trafficking and its disproportional impact on immigrant and minority communities.





Mike Markel

Mike Markel writes the Detectives Seagate and Miner Mystery series, which is set in the fictional small city of Rawlings, Montana, home of Central Montana State University. That university is somewhat like Boise State University, where Mike is a professor, but in Rawlings the weather is colder, the football team less successful, and the murder rate much, much higher.

What are you reading now or what do you have in your TBR pile?

I’m multitasking on three fronts for my reading list at the moment. First, for pure enjoyment, I’m reading a James Rollins/Grant Blackwood book titled The Kill Switch. It’s a Tucker Wayne novel. This is my first time to read either author’s work. It’s special operations stuff with one of the main character’s being a military dog. I’m only a few chapters in but it’s kept my attention so far. We’ll see where it goes.

The second book I’m reading is titled Mass Incarceration – The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander. It’s a nonfiction work outlining the damage that drugs and the war on drugs has done to the minority community. I’m reading this as research for my third Detective Jake Hunter novel. It’s a fascinating read with a ton of interesting research.

The last item on my reading list should actually be called my ‘listening’ list. I’m proofing the audio book of my second novel, Stolen Innocence. It’s amazing to listen to your own words being read dramatically by a professional. To hear a book read seems to add a layer of emotion that the pure printed word struggles to achieve. Both of my current releases will hopefully be available on audio book by Christmas.

Do you write an outline before every book you write?

I actually have a fairly methodical process I go through when writing a book. Part of that process is building at least a partial outline, but that’s definitely not my first step. While I’m an avid reader of mystery suspense novels and thoroughly enjoy the twists and turns and mental gymnastics, the novels I enjoy the most are the ones that make me think beyond just figuring out who is the bad guy. Because of that, all of my novels so far have been built around exploring some kind of social issue.

In my first novel, The Victim, the story revolves around gang violence, media stereotypes and racial tensions. Stolen Innocence explores the world of human trafficking. In both cases, I want to reader to not only enjoy ‘the chase’ but also to walk away a little more educated about these issues.

With that in mind, my first step is always to determine ‘why’ I’m writing the book in the first place. What is the issue or message I’m trying to communicate? From there, I will spend weeks, sometimes months, just crafting related thoughts. I’ll capture these in a Word document that is just a random catchall for notes. It’s almost stream of consciousness with no structure or order. I’ll note plot ideas, potential characters and locations. I may even write out dialogue from a scene that pops into my head. I’ll certainly capture statistics and research on the underlying topic of the novel. This document can end up being several pages long.

Once I’ve got some critical mass, then I’ll create a list of characters. Sometimes, I’ll go as far as to build a relationship map between the characters. Finally, after I’ve gone through all those steps, I’ll sit down and outline out the first several chapters, usually around ten. Once the writing starts, those have a tendency to shift and change anyway. This is just a starting point. I know it sounds like a lot ‘process’, but I’ve found that if I go through those steps with intent, I can free my mind to really flow when I start to write.

While you were writing, did you ever feel as if you were one of the characters?

One of the beautiful things about writing fiction is that you get to make stuff up. One of the hard things about writing fiction, especially mystery suspense, is that whatever you make up has to be believable. One of the ways I've found to make it believable is to write each chapter from the point of view of a specific character. That not only gives the reader a focal point, it also gives me the opportunity to build out each character and to bring in some of their back story. The challenge however, is that in order to do that, you really have to get inside that character’s head. I’m not sure I've ever felt like I ‘was’ the character, but I've certainly gotten wrapped up inside that character to a point where I was feeling the emotions of the moment as I typed the words. There were a couple of chapters in Stolen Innocence that were mentally and emotionally exhausting for that very reason.

Do you have any advice for other writers?

While I go through a process that starts with the big picture, by the time I actually start writing, I've broken it down into very small chunks. You've heard the only saying about eating an elephant one bite at a time. If you sit down at your laptop and start thinking about writing 300 pages or 90,000 words or 60 chapters, your brain is just going to meltdown because thinking about that while you’re looking at a blank sheet will intimidate you to the point of paralysis. But if you've got that outline and you know what chapter one is about, whose point of view it’s from, where it takes place and the specific list of events that need to occur, then all of a sudden you don’t have to think about all those big numbers, all you have to think about is writing sentences. Anybody can write a set of sentences if you know all the information in the outline. When you start with a set of sentences, they tend to turn into paragraphs which usually ultimately form chapters. Get enough chapters written and the next thing you know, you have a book.

Slow Ride: Kat Morrisey

Kyla O'Grady hit the gas and drove her Mustang out of Rock River, Pennsylvania with one goal in mind: find somewhere to start over.

Broken down just inside the town limits of Ashten Falls, Maine, Kyla is stranded.

Cooper had enough on his plate to last a lifetime, but on a stretch of highway heading into the town he spots a '67 Mustang Coupe and does what any decent mechanic would do: stop to help.

Kyla is speeding away from her past, unsure how to move forward. Cooper has been on cruise control, just hoping to get through every day without being arrested or harassed.

No woman ever really forgets her first love. Callie Sorenson is no exception. Hers was tall, tanned, and - as her older brother’s best friend - completely off limits.
Danny McCutcheon.
It’s a name that Callie hasn’t spoken in years, even if the man to whom it belongs has never really been all that far from her thoughts. Or her heart. But now a twist of fate will bring her back to the childhood home she left behind years ago, and to the hometown boy for whom she secretly longed.
When her mother takes a bad fall and breaks her hip, Callie leaves the bright lights of New York City to fly back west and help with the rehabilitation. It’s a tense homecoming due to a long time estrangement between mother and daughter, and it drives Callie to confront both a painful personal loss and her unanswered questions about the father who abandoned her when she was just a child. It also brings her face to face with Danny again, and Callie quickly realizes that old feelings die hard.
But for Danny, it’s new feelings that are a problem. Callie is not the young girl he remembers but a woman now, and a very desirable one. They both have reasons to fight the growing attraction between them, but the temptation may just prove to be too much to resist, despite some very real risk to their hearts. The past casts a long shadow over the future, though, and Callie will have to overcome it or else face losing the one man who means the most to her.

All About Charming Alice: J. Arlene Culiner

Alice Treemont has given up hope of meeting the right man and falling in love. Living in depopulated Blake’s Folly, a community of rusting cars, clapboard shacks and thirsty weeds, she cooks vegetarian meals, rescues unwanted dogs and protects the most unloved creatures on earth: snakes. What man would share those interests? Certainly not Jace Constant whose life in Chicago includes elegant women, fine dining and contemporary art. He’s in Nevada doing research for his new book but definitely won’t be staying: he hates the desert’s bleakness, the dust on his fine leather shoes and the dog hair on his cashmere sweaters. As for snakes — they terrify him.

So why does the air sizzle each time Alice and Jace meet? Why are they so fascinated by each other? Their feelings might go deeper than raw desire, but any long-term relationship is clearly doomed.

In need of juicy gossip, the other 52 residents of Blake's Folly have decided Alice has been alone for long enough. The attraction between her and Jace is so obvious, why worry about differences? If you trust in love, solutions do appear. But don’t those solutions call for too many compromises, too much self-sacrifice? </ div>

J. Arlene Culiner
Born in New York, raised in Toronto, J.Arlene Culiner has spent most of her life in England, Germany, Turkey, Greece, Hungary and the Sahara but now resides in a 300-year-old former inn in a French village of no real interest. Much to everyone’s dismay, she rescues and protects all living creatures — especially spiders, bats and snakes; her wild (or wildlife) garden is a classified butterfly and bird reserve. She can be found at: www.j-arleneculiner.com and at: www.jill-culiner.com

Broken Wings, Soaring Hearts: Beverly A. Rogers

Hailey Holman is a woman determined to keep her dad's memory and his dream of reopening their small-town Texas base station alive. Jack Stinson is looking for a peaceful place to escape the rat race of the big city life and big city business of his own family's airplane manufacturing business.

What a perfect match. Other than the fact that her mom hates the flying business with a passion and fights Hailey's every effort, and Jack's dad fought his every effort to make the break, then disowned him for leaving. Throw in two town bullies who insist on opening a base station of their own and reeking havoc on Hailey's plans and her own determination not to get personally involved with the employees, and it's anything but smooth sailing.

But these two focused pilots might just be surprised how things can work out with enough stubbornness . . . and faith.

Beverly A. Rogers is a Texas girl who writes with a heart as big as the Lone Star State. Her idea of a romantic man isn't someone who will promise her the moon and the stars. It's someone who will walk on the beach holding her hand, watching the moon and the stars from her eyes . . . and never complain about sand in his boots.  Learn more about Bev at www.BeverlyARogers.com.

Charmed: Inés Saint
Jamie Sullivan is a fun-loving, widowed mother of twin five-year old boys. A
creative goldsmith with her own line of designer charms, she is determined to
forge her own unique brand of success. Jamie guards a painful secret that leads
her to be emphatic about not letting a man into her life.

Nick Grey is the gorgeous, charming, and daydream-inducing headmaster of the private
elementary school Jamie's children will attend. After single-handedly bringing
up his daughter while earning his doctorate and proving himself to the school's
board of directors and the community, he feels burned out. Come the end of the
semester, Nick is taking a year off to travel the world. 

When they meet, an instant attraction blazes through both. Nick and Jamie soon find their hard
earned peace of mind threatened by meddling matchmakers, old rivalries, and
children who can't keep their feet out of their mouths. But Nick's not
interested in starting over and raising kids again, and Jamie's sure she can't
trust her heart. Will they be able to nurture their friendship and attraction into something that can last forever?

Ines was born in Zaragoza, Spain and have moved approximately twenty times. I went to school in New Jersey, Massachusetts, and Puerto Rico and I'm bilingual and bicultural. I've spent the last ten years raising my fun, inspiring little boys and sharing my life with the man I'd always dreamed of. My greatest joys are spending time with family and close friends and coming up with characters and interesting situations.

What are you reading now or what do you have in your TBR pile?

I read and review about forty books each year for a book blog http://booksandpals.blogspot.com/, so I survive on an almost exclusive diet of indie and small press titles. Currently, I’m enjoying a post-apocalyptic thriller- The Reset, by Daniel Powell. Big Al—who runs the review site—has a list of fifteen hundred titles. No matter how fast we reviewers read, that number never seems to drop.
Recently, as an experiment, I picked up a compilation set of Stephen King novelettes. I wanted to be sure I wasn’t missing out by not reading in the mainstream. I enjoyed King’s stories, but I’m not missing out. I’ve found some absolute gems in Big Al’s list. I love the variety I find there, and many of the authors are first-timers.

NanoStrike was my debut novel, and I know how difficult it can be to find people to read and review a novel by a new writer. Reviews are an indie author’s lifeblood. I’m grateful for every one of the 150+ that NanoStrike has received, so I guess I feel I’m taking one for the indie team by reading indie books.

Do you write an outline before every book you write?

Nope. Nada. Nothing. I start with an incident. In NanoStrike, it was a gas attack on a London subway train. In Love Poison, it was a woman locked in a bathroom stall trying to overcome an anxiety attack. My next novel starts with a stray rocket striking a trailer in a US Army camp in Southern Iraq. My opening chapter asks a lot of questions. The story becomes the answer.

While you were writing, did you ever feel as if you were one of the characters?

I guess there’s a piece of me or someone I know in every character I create. They have to be based in knowledge, and I have to empathize with them (even the bad guys), otherwise they won’t seem real. Incidentally, both NanoStrike and Love Poison feature a very nasty bad-guy (different guy, but equally nasty). After she finished reading NanoStrike, my wife looked at me in a strange way and asked, “Who the hell are you?”

Do you have any advice for other writers?

I've spent a lot of time knocking my head against hard objects trying to understand Donald Maass, and Dwight V. Swain, and many other writing experts when they insisted that I make it more difficult for my characters. Create tension. Create conflict.

I did. Yes, I did. But as I was throwing wrenches at the poor people populating my tale, concurrently, I was providing the tools to help them overcome the obstacles. Well, I've finally figured out that’s not the point those writing sages were making. If you've worked out the solution, the actions that place the characters in peril will seem flat, and their brilliant escape will be meh! But if you write your character into a cul-de-sac with eighty-foot walls, set in a valley, and then fracture the water main at the top of the hill during a freak power outage, you’ll have to invent a compelling plot to get them outta there.

So now, I try not to worry about my imaginary peeps. I just let them get into deep trouble. Once they’re well and truly stuck, then I l wander around the house bumping into doors and muttering to myself until I work out how to rescue them.

You see, if I don’t know how they’re going to overcome the dire situation I’m writing them into then neither will the reader. But if I know the solution ahead of time, I’d have to mislead my reader, tell them lies as I placed the character in jeopardy. And readers can see through lies.
