What is your favorite quality about yourself? I’m always trying to see things through the eyes of others. It makes it harder to dislike people, and I suppose that it helps with my writing too. Yet sometimes I find myself defending or explaining a stranger’s behavior that’s just awful and then I think “what am I doing?”
What is your least favorite quality about yourself? I’m such an introvert. Like, at work I actually will stay in a bathroom stall until another woman is done at the sink and leaves the restroom, just so I don’t have to talk to her. Is that weird? I don’t know, but I’m sure that I’d be better at promoting my books if I had more of the extrovert in me.
What is your favorite color? Green, deep emerald green
What is your favorite food? Ice cream.
What’s your favorite place in the entire world? My front porch. I know that sounds boring, but I live in the country and my front porch is exceptionally nice. It’s about fifty feet wide, ten feet deep, filled with flowers and surrounded by birds and butterflies. Seriously, it’s so perfect its almost a caricature. It’s also where I write.
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated? I used to make up bedtime stories for my little sister. She was not only nice enough to beg me for more, she’s stayed nice enough to still be one of my best beta readers
What genre are you most comfortable writing? I write what I like to read. My two favorite genres are speculative fiction of all types, and crime/mystery. I especially had fun with the novel y1 because it combines both.
Zane swore as a child to someday protect all of the odd people in the world. He studied chameleons and muscle groups as he taught himself to alter his own appearance, and it turned out that skills for blending were very helpful to a young boy too smart and too different to fit in well.
But as an adult, things have changed. Zane finds that he now just wants to be himself. He gets a degree in neuroscience to understand abilities that even he recognizes as astonishing. Worst of all, he is fast discovering that everyone is odd. He hadn’t counted on that.
When he lands in the sales department of Penthes Pharmaceuticals, he begins to uncover layers of corporate secrets that ultimately will hide surprisingly vile plans. Sent on a sales boondoggle to the South Pacific, he finds others with talents as surprising as his own and with problems far worse. As his new friends flee the malicious schemes of those who would control them, Zane wants to help. Their freedom-loving philosophy of y1 calls to him.
But first, he must deal with a murder charge. And an unsavory boot camp manager. And serious repercussions from the fact that not everyone at Penthes likes him, or wants him to knows the mysteries that the company has worked so hard to keep hidden.
Can he help them all? Can he even help himself? Fantasy, reality and a bit of speculative science come together as Zane uses all the unique abilities he has to resist turning from a murder suspect into a murder victim. Then he has to sort out just how to keep that childhood promise.
