Clark Graham is another busy author that I managed to sneak a few minutes with this week for today’s author interview. Clark, thanks for allowing me to speak with you for a few minutes about your book ‘Wizards and Heroes’. For those for are unfamiliar with your book are you able to give as a short synopsis of what this tale is about?
It’s about a high school boy, named Jason, that finds himself pulled into another world, night after night. He thinks it’s a dream until he’s injured in that world, and wakes up with the same injuries in the real world. Complicating maters, the school finds out he’s injured and get the police involved. His world is spinning out of control.
What drove you to write about Jason’s life spinning out of control?
I was rolling the idea around, but I was writing another book at the time. Then NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month) Came along. It’s a challenge to write 50,000 words in the month of November. I accepted the challenge and stopped writing the other book. This book was written in one month.
Writing 50,000 words in a month is impressive. When writing at that rate did you need to include themes?
How about research, did you find that it was necessary to support the storyline?
Our time has just about run out now, so finally what did you find the most rewarding thing about writing this book?
I’ve written 28 books. This one’s my favorite.
Thank you for allowing me to catch up with you today Clark. I wish you the best of luck with your promotion of Wizards and Heroes today.
