The Healer's Making (Author Interview)




The Healer's Making, looks like a great dark fantasy book. Are there any plans to make this part of a series?
All my books occur in a timeline. This one is a mythology in the Forsaken Isles. This one was so much fun to write that I am seriously considering blowing this novella out into a full book.

What do you think makes a great story?
An unreliable narrator that keeps readers on their toes, unknowables that shape plot twists, and a rip-roaring good time. I’d normally add humor, but The Healer’s Making foregoes humor for action pace and epic scale.

What inspired you when writing The Healer's Making?
The world of www.forsakenisles.com is powerfully magic, full of gods and heroes, and is brutal. I wanted a story of compassion during a lost epoch of peace. This is Atlantis, Greece, Rome, and other empires falling and in their midst, a healer.

What are your ambitions for your writing career? Full time? Part time?
I aspire to full time but am enjoying this so much right now I often wonder if I went full time, would it become a job.


When did you decide to become a writer?
I always knew I would write, even when I was 10 years old. Now, I’m a fantasy author masquerading as an IT professional.

When writing The Healer's Making did anything stand out as particularly challenging?
This story wrote itself. My muse was strong and the story flew onto paper. I loved it.

How did you come up with the story of The Healer's Making?
Each god in my world has a dominion that, in turn, enables an anti-dominion. I wanted a pure healing dominion controlled by a single god and to show what a priest in that dominion might be like.

What do you like to do when not writing?
I love hiking, camping, reading, and writing. My interests that allow daydreaming are especially powerful.
