A little more about David

9. Have you ever had any paranormal experience?

Not as such. My wife and I like to visit supposedly haunted places at night but we’ve never seen anything.

10.Who is your favorite person in life?

My wife. Who else could I say? 🙂

11. Do you have any hero? who is s/he?
My hero is either J.R.R. Tolkien or C.S. Lewis. They were both academics, Christians, and fantasy writers of a very high caliber. I would love to emulate their lives, at least in most ways.
12. If you could change the world would you? what will be the changes?
I would make everyone more loving towards each other. That would fix a lot of problems right there.

13.What do you hate most in the world?
I hate willful ignorance and stupidity and people arguing from flawed logic to intentionally deceive people.

14.What are your hobbies other than writing?

I have a lot, although not a lot of time to pursue them. I love mountain climbing and camping. I also love wood-carving and playing Minecraft. Anything really that involves creation.

15.Who is your favorite poet? Why?

I don’t really read many poets. My favorite poem is Jabberwocky, by Lewis Carroll, since it’s weird like me.

16.If you could change one thing about yourself what will it be?

I blush easily, so I would change that.

section 2

About your books, all of them (individually)- I have five finished novels, not including Giselle, so I’ll just write about Giselle, since it’s the only one currently for sale on my blog.

1. What is this book about?
Giselle is the story of a man who goes back in time and sees a woman he liked but fell out of contact with. He then tries to pursue a relationship with her in the present and the past.

2. What is the inspiration behind the book?
I honestly don’t remember but a lot of the preliminary work on it I did when I was on a hiking trip by myself. I went to a few remote Korean islands for a few days.

3. Is there any special message?
It’s a love story but deals with ideas like free will and fate and if we can change things or not.

4. Tell me something about how you wrote it, what you loved writing/hated a bit or anything you will love to share!
I started this story several times since it didn’t feel right at first. Also, in the first draft, the main character killed himself at the end. The couple people that read it thought it was horrifying and depressing (they were right), so I changed it and made it much better.
5. Full url from where we can get your book. 🙂
