Road to Elysium (Author Interview)

Road to Elysium looks like a great story.  Can you tell us a little about it?

Road To Elysium is roughly based on a news story I heard about a man that had helped to mentor a young boy starting with a request to be taught a sport. From there I wondered how that could change someone’s life by the simple act of saying yes. The boy’s life for sure. But how did it or could it change the man’s life?


Any plans to turn it into a series? Not at this time as my other books “Disturbed Tombs” is a series with the next book due out around Jan 2023.


How long did it take you to write Road to Elysium? I wrote this book in about 9 months from the conception to publishing. 


What inspired the idea for your book?  A story in the news. 


Can you tell us a little about Ken? At the beginning of my book, Ken is a shattered man due to the fact he had the things that meant everything to him taken away in an instant.  He is an architect who grew up and lives in Chicago.   His family was the lower-middle class and Ken fought for everything he had.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Road to Elysium? Most of my leading characters are ladies.  This book is male based.  I needed to know that I was writing a character who is true to being a male.  I hired a guy to review and help edit the book to ensure the character stayed within that character.  Women giggle, Men chuckle.  Things that tiny can change a character.


What do you like to do when not writing? I am retired from my years in Hollywood working on films and TV shows.  Many of my friends are still in the industry and I find myself helping out when needed.  Otherwise, I love to walk.  Given the opportunity to go somewhere and be surrounded by nature is the way I refill.


Where can readers find out more about your work? I have a few other books already published. Feel free to visit my website at for more information on current books and upcoming releases.


Are your other books the same style of genre? Not Really.  My first book Disturbed Tombs came from a personal question as to why we are okay with excavating every tomb we find while we hold our own graveyards as sacred. If we believe we have souls, what happens when we unearth someone. It is a historical fiction and has won awards.

Sisters In Cold Blood is a murder mystery style book. A woman inherits a house and starts to remodel it when she discovers a serial killer’s confession letter from 1909.  When law enforcement decides it is too old to follow up on the “cold case,” she becomes an amateur sleuth. What is fun about this book is that I created a companion book that provides images and information of the clues as they are discovered along the way.  The companion book is free to all readers who are amateur sleuths themselves.
