James Richardson is an amazing man who I am glad I have gotten to know better. He has a great sense of humor and amazing imagination. His books are vivid and full of life and ones you don’t want to miss reading. I highly recommend getting to know him and reading his books. Please welcome James Richardson to Roadie Notes…….
1. How old were you when you first wrote your first story?
I was about 28 when I first wrote Terra Dragon Chronicles, after that stories just started to snowball.
2. How many books have you written?
I have written three novel’s so far and a fourth on the way, along with some short stories that are waiting to be published.
3. Anything you won’t write about?
Romance! While yes I do write sex scenes into my novel’s, it’s just romance seems to be a hurdle I just can’t jump. The only romance short story I wrote well let’s say I won’t be doing it again.
4. Tell me about you. Age (if you don’t mind answering), married, kids, do you have another job etc…
Well I’m 35, not married, no kid’s, while I think of myself as a full-time writer I also work as a security guard. What can I say got to pay the bills somehow.
5. What’s your favorite book you have written?
Hmm that’s a hard one, as I am sure with other authors out there they love every book they have written. If I had to pick it be the Twilight City series I have currently going, because who doesn’t love werewolves and vampires killing each other.
6. Who or what inspired you to write?
R.A. Salvatore’s The Dark Elf Trilogy. There in the forward of the book resounded so profoundly within me I knew what I wanted to become and I quote “That’s the thing about fictional characters: they have a way of becoming real- and not just real to the people reading them, but surprisingly multidimensional for the author as well. I come to love, hate, admire, or despise I create in my books. For that to happen, each must act constantly within the framework of his or her experience, whether those events appear in the books or not.” end quote.
7. What do you like to do for fun?
I tend to read a lot, play video games, and sleep lot’s, and lot’s of sleep.
8. Any traditions you do when you finish a book?
Well I do take a week off to relax before I start working on another book.
9. Where do you write? Quite or music?
Anywhere I can, at home, work, anywhere I’m not disturbed.
10. Anything you would change about your writing?
Grammar always about the grammar oh and an editor I can actually afford.
11. What is your dream? Famous writer?
Well that would be nice but I’d settle for top 50 if that’s possible.
12. Where do you live?
Currently I’m residing in South Carolina.
Dog’s far to many of them for my liking.
14. What’s your favorite thing about writing?
The worlds I create for my stories I tend to wander around. Poking at every little thing I can to ensure that it is as real to me as I hope the reader’s see them as.
15. What is coming next for you?
Well I’m halfway done with the second book in the Twilight City series so hopefully it goes well.
