Dead Boss Cemetery Dot Com Author Interview

Dead Boss Cemetery looks like a great thriller book. Any plan to turn this into a series?

It is a series. This first novella is Volume I.

Dead Boss Cemetery Dot Com has many social messages. First, it’s a statement about the middle class and it’s impending demise. This is why I chose to start with a statement written by Frederick Douglas in 1886.

Ultimately, it’s about karmic justice and all it’s grisly carnage along the way.

What do you think makes a great thriller?

A great thriller is comprised of many facets:

  1. Start with what appears to be a simple situation with good, understandable, witty dialogue and likable characters.
  2. Lead your reader into a place that seems just a little bit curious
  3. Bang! Hit them with a shocking situation that can be fixed only when you find out how.
  4. Lead them to the unbelievable how.

To me, these are the ingredients of a good thriller. Of course, there are many more components, but this is the gist of it.

What inspired you when writing Dead Boss Cemetery?

Working in Florida. I don’t believe I’ve ever met so many horrible and mean bosses anywhere else. Most of my life I worked in California. I’ve also worked in Texas, my home state.

What are your ambitions for your writing career? Full time? Part time?

I write full time now. I’d love to have my stories converted to screenplays. I guess that’s why I create a book trailer for each of them. It’s a dream that could come true. You never know!

When did you decide to become a writer?

I’ve been writing since I was in grammar school. I’ve explored many avenues of expression because I’m also a singer and even played violin for many years in my youth. However, I find writing is more rewarding in that it allows you to express yourself freely.

I find the cultural landscape of writing easier to live in than the chaos surrounding most other worlds of creativity and entertainment.

When writing Dead Boss Cemetery did anything stand out as particularly challenging?

Romantic aspects are difficult for me to create. I’m adding more romance to my stories. I find this challenging because I fear that it reveals too much about myself personally.

How did you come up with the story of Dead Boss Cemetery?

I don’t remember exactly which employer inspired me to do this. It was one of three. Maybe four. Who knows now?

I laugh a lot. I find fantasy revenge especially hilarious. Haven’t you ever gotten so angry at someone then taken their photo and blacked out their teeth? Writing this story was kind of like that.

What I do know is that finding “revenge” satisfaction through fantasy entertainment is great for the soul.

What do you like to do when not writing?

I start every morning with music and puzzles. Usually, I’d get up and jump on a treadmill after that. Unfortunately, I don’t have one here in Mexico yet. Though I haven’t been able to do much of it lately, reading is one of my favorite pastimes. I also love to cook. I’m just like everyone else. Watching great movies and television probably takes up too much of my time.
