View 2 comments. Jan 08, Maggie Doerle rated it really liked it. I am a sucker for "coming of age" novels. This one in particular had my attention since it took place in my backyard, so to speak. I easily became invested in the characters. So much so, I will be checking out The Body War which is next in the chronicals. An enjoyable read!
Jun 03, Courtney Conant rated it it was amazing. This story had me sucked in from the beginning. Yes, it is the tale of a small group of kids, but it is very well written and kept me smiling and flipping the virtual pages. I truly enjoyed this novel. Adam P.

No trivia or quizzes yet. The print version is set for release in November Do you work another job as well as your writing work? W hat is the name of your latest book, and if you had to summarise it in less than 20 words what would you say? No, I'd taken an early retirement offer sever years earlier. Two brothers vie for her affections as a predatory priest stalks her. Who is your publisher? Fantasy Island Book Publishing is the publisher. How long does it usually take you to write a book, from the original idea to finishing writing it? I finished the initial draft in three weeks, but spent months and months editing and test-reading it.
I think that was an anomaly to finish a book that quickly. I didn't have to create many fictitious characters or story lines.
Timonium Author's First Novel Based on Experience
What can we expect from you in the future? Books of a different genre? Do you have plans for a new book?
Is this book part of a series? Each book in the series will have a staggered release. I'm currently working on a book involving a group of college students involved in a scandal while playing for their university's lacrosse team. What genre would you place your books into? I hate classifying books, but I'd place them in Literary Fiction and the sub-categories of coming of age, romance, women's and young adult. Do you have a favourite out of the books you have written? If so why is it your favourite?

The first and third volumes of the Charm City series are my favorites because of the sub-plots they contain. Do you have a favourite character from your books? I'd have to say Anita Collins is my favorite. She's the best friend of the main character, Kate Fitzgerald. How long have you been writing? I began in for the reasons stated in question 3 above. Where do you get your book plot ideas from?
The book is basically what I call bio-fiction, so the plot evolved my my own real-life experiences. Do you have anybody read your books and give you reviews before you officially release them? Yes, I have a few friends who know me well enough to be frank and honest. Do you gift books to readers to do reviews? I haven't done that yet, but may in the future. It's important for me to know what readers think.
That would have to be the one from a girlhood friend who was expecting a much more adult handling. I think she felt badly when I pointed out to her that it was never described as such. I grew up in a neighborhood called "Ednor Gardens", and the story concerns the things that left scars. Hence, the title, "Ednor Scardens". I worked with a very talented woman named Ceri Clark. Right now, pre-print release, I utilize social media such as facebook, twitter, Book review clubs and site, my blog and word-of-mouth. That will intensify as Fantasy Island Book Publishing grows as a company and we set up in-store signings at bookstores among other things.
First, I think it has to have a good story that people want to read. After that it's all marketing and promotion to get the word out.

I spend time with family and hit the gym. Have you ever based characters on people you know or based events on things that have happened to you? That is the case with all four of my novels.
Are there any hidden messages or morals contained in your books? I can't say there are hidden messages, but there are passages where I hope young readers will take something from the difficulties my characters experience. The importance of protected sex is the one that jumps to mind mainly.
Is there a certain Author that influenced you in writing? Believe it or not, Stephanie Meyer was a big influence,.
I can't say that I prefer one over another.
