Over the next few months I plan to run a number of interviews with authors on my blog. All types of genres apart from extremes of gore or erotica (it’s a blog with a family viewing target audience after all!) To kick us off I’m pleased to introduce American crime/ Western / Sci-fi (and other things in the mix) author, Christopher Davis.
Hello Margaret and thank you so much for having me. It’s always great to get out once in a while.
What is the title of your latest book?
There are two this year from Solstice Publishing, Walking to Babylon and Ain’t No Law in California.
Walking to Babylon is a short crime novel, which is a retelling of a story that was published in a cancer anthology from England.
Ain’t No Law in California has wanted to be a western for more than 8 years. A rewrite incorporating elements of sci-fi and steampunk found a home. So it’s traditional western with zombies and flying machines.
Both stories take place in and around Las Vegas. It wasn’t planned that way.
What are the most challenging aspects of being a writer? And the most rewarding?
It’s a tough business no matter how you look at it.
What is your top tip for an aspiring writer?
Don’t do it kid! There are plenty of other ways to spend your many hours of time.
What are you working on at the moment?
At the moment, I’m rewriting a sequel to both of the stories above. The crime story will continue in Vegas where the other left off, To Watch a Man Die.
The sci-fi western is yet untitled, but I hope to have it together soon.
What do you like to read?
History, early American, military, Civil War. I sort of became a student of that war after living near Gettysburg for a few years. I do read a lot of indie crime too. King and Koontz are favorites.
