I, Alien (Author Interview)


I Alien looks like an exciting story.  Can you tell us a little about it?

I, Alien is the story of my life written as fiction based on true events. As a child age ten I lived in squalid housing conditions and was often abused. From boy to man contact with those behind the UFOs and being an asset of the organization I call SCOVS is reflected in the journals and art of the book. Rather amazingly the experiences I have had are because other parties knew I would write this book before I did. Those parties are not governed by the rules of time. I needed a Tolkien meets UFOs, Jason Bourne vibe flowing through it.


Any plans to turn it into a series?

The book is definitely a film. And the exploits of the SCOVS agency (Special Contact Operation Very See) is a TV drama, SCOVS is the future version of the mysterious agency Collins Elite, Collins is a UFO agency founded in 1950 to counteract the demonic component of the UFO phenomena consisting of Army, Air Force, Navy and FBI.


How long did it take you to write I Alien?

It has taken nearly four years due to my continual battle against Post Traumatic Stress Disorder I am very blessed in many ways.


That’s an amazing cover.  Can you tell us a little about it?

The cover is of the Nordic Alien from Andromeda called Taun and his associated city as broadcast across the joint alien/human information super highway.


What inspired the idea for your book?

The journals that detailed day by day my mysterious goings on, I was about to throw them in the bin in a fit of rage over the loss of my mother. They were sat on my shelf for years but detail a precise operation across time, to achieve the impossible, to transmit in real time a JPEG file for example across galaxies with no delay.


How did you come up with the title to your book?

That is a mystery but I think my Nordic friends had a say in that.


What part of the book was the most fun to write?

Writing it was not fun, the amazing art that graces the book of the ET, (they look like us, we look like them.) was the most fun and hours of work in shaping it like a sculptor.

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing I Alien?

Recalling the hell I lived through when I lost my mother, I looked after her, she had Dementia. I lost her, the house I lived in and had to have major hernia surgery all in the same year. I will never forget interaction at that time with an alien female we call Arcturian, she was absolutely gorgeous and as real as it gets. Her beauty graces the pages of my book, at a time when all was lost and I was close to suicide.

What do you like to do when not writing?

I am a radio presenter with my local radio station, and a dancing mascot for the station, love to dance, cook and read. I am a big fan of Lee Child books, and love to research the work of choreographer Bob Fosse as well as others. I run some online art galleries, selling my art.
