The Gem of the Gods (Author Interview)

The Gem of the Gods looks like a fantastic short fantasy book.  Can you tell us a little about Freyr?

Freyr was a man forced into working for a sorcerer bent of world domination. He attemps to undermine the attemps without his master knowing, however after a failthful encounter with a norse god, His life becomes an interesting battle of wills.


Any plans to turn it into a series?

There is a potential for a second book in the series.


What inspired the idea for your book?

I love mythology and all things mythical. I am an impromptu writer. If I start writing and it makes sense, with potential for a book, I keep running with it. Should I not like the concept I start over. None of the books I write are truly planned out until the writing has started.


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

Freyr is searching for the gem that the gods created, which all of the battles and plot is based on this gem


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

The beginning I loved doing research when I thought of something to add to the book. Everything that is mentioned, such as landmarks for example, are real world locations. Obviously there are a few places that are just mythological.


What do you like to do when not writing?

I spend all of my free time with my son and working on getting my nonprofit foundation off the ground. This nonprofit focus on children diagnosed with Cabezas Syndrome, a mutation or deletion of the CUL4b gene, and the families of these children.


Where can readers find out more about your work?

Unfortunately, just by reading the book, I do not have much out there yet. I work for NYC so I stayed away from social media and sites like those due to the social media policy.
