There's a kindle copy giveaway of to one commenter!

What literary pilgrimages have you gone on? 

Most of the "pilgrimages" would probably be for research. One year, I was working on a historical western that never took off, but I did do the research.  We drove to Wyoming to stay at Butch Cassidy's Hole in the Wall.  It was a wild trip through history that made the trip worth it.

What is the first book that made you cry? 


I actually don't know.  I know I cried bad at Love Story, but that about ten years ago. First book I remember getting sucked into was Raise the Titanic by Clive Cussler.


What is your writing Kryptonite? 

Lack of sleep.  Due to a medical situation I am actually supposed to sleep at least ten hours a day. Since I like to stay up until 2:00am I tend to get up in time for lunch when I can claim I am an eccentric author.

What other authors are you friends with, and how do they help you become a better writer? 

I've had quite a career writing short non-fiction. I have interviewed Nora Roberts, Debbie Macmober.
Suzanne Brockman took a shine to me and mentored me for several years. I've corresponded with Dean Koontz and Clive Cussler and I got Joss Whedon to look in his mailbox and see me.  He gave me permission to teach Lesson's of Firefly. I have an article in my web page that talks about these type of relationships ... http://bit.ly/1qzT3qm



Travis Ricci, Ian Stuart, Jason Sullivan, Quinn Nelson and Evan Harris—before the Dead Men debuted in Dead Men Play the Game, these five guys had lives which took them across the Pacific Northwest, making their own history which could be no one's, but their own.
          They faced funny, they faced sadness, and they made sure each one of them was standing when the sun finally rose each day.

  1. It sounds wonderful.
    Sleep deprivation has been used as a torture for millenia. For good reason - it is.

    1. This book took some extra time to release, but it is one of my favorites. Two of my favorite shorts are "Collateral Damage" and "Yours, Mine and Ours." .... all high end suspense.

  7. Unfortunately, I have trouble falling asleep, too, Jacqui. I'm physically tired and mentally tired. But I just stare and, many times, worry about my writing.
    Thanks for sharing this interview with your followers, Nas. All the best to you both! The book sounds wonderful, Jacqui.
