Author Interview – Nicholas L. Maze

What is your favorite quality about yourself? A good listener. I’ve been complimented on numerous occasions about being a good listener. I’m not a talkative person, so it is very easy for me to be the one that listens in a conversation.

What is your favorite quote, by whom, and why? “The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.” – Martin Luther King Jr. I pick this one, because it says everything. Your challenges and controversy is what determines your strength and determination. If everything was easy and you never had to fight, then where would your strength lie?

What are you most proud of accomplishing so far in your life? A lot of things balance on this question. I could say owning my own home. I could say achieving multiple degrees, I could say becoming an author. I think overall is giving my life back to GOD.

What is your favorite color? Green, same as my mother.

What is your favorite food? Pizza, because it has everything I love, bread, tomato, and cheese.

What’s your favorite place in the entire world? Home

How has your upbringing influenced your writing? The support of my parents, especially my father. I wrote as a child and my father would support anything I did. I’ve always had the mindset that I can at least try once.

Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? Imagination. I’ve always had a strong imagination. With so many thoughts going through my head, I had to put it on paper. Writing brought my thoughts to life.

When and why did you begin writing? I began at the age of 11, because of a strong imagination.

How long have you been writing? If you start from the beginning, it’s been about 22 years, but it hasn’t been consistent.

When did you first know you could be a writer? I seriously pursued writing at the age of 24.

What inspires you to write and why? I realized it was a gift, since I was a child. I knew that I could seriously pursue it and make it a career. At the same time, writing is like therapy. After writing, I am relaxed and I feel I have accomplished something. Another inspiration is when I feel I have something to share with the world and it can benefit someone.



Have you ever questioned your relationship with God? Is it possible that you believe you are growing in God but you’re actually pulling away from Him? Has church become commercial and no longer sacred? Are people talking about the powerful message or are they talking about what someone wore? Are we more focused on fitting into a mold than living for God? It’s time to face the facts.
