Q&A with Friends and Fans
Q: How did ‘The Clock’ Action Thriller series come about?
A: I’m a big fan of espionage books, spy thrillers, fast paced thrillers and well written action packed stories. So when the time came, there was no question; I wanted to write the kind of book that I love to read. I really wanted to make it one of those fast paced books that pushes action thrillers to a new level of Adrenalin.
The idea that would become Momentum, and the whole series, came from a graphic novel I was developing at the time. It was in that vein; wild, crazy, fun, scary and thumping with action. The story of a de-sanctioned assassin working against powerful enemies in the pursuit of justice became a solid vehicle for me to explore just how far a person would be willing to go, and how much of themselves they were willing to sacrifice to bring closure to their pain. That quickly developed into the action packed adventure series 'The Clock'.
What I loved about writing this series was the integration of an explosive action packed story with strong elements of mystery, suspense and romance. It was such a thrill to write, and I'm hoping my readers and fans feel the same about reading it.
Q: Each book in the series reads like a movie. Was that the intention when you wrote them?
A: Absolutely. I live and breathe the writing process. I visualize every scene, every character nuance, every sight, smell, movement, emotion.. you get the idea. There has been chatter about it being made into a movie. At this stage, there’s nothing official to report. But stay tuned...
Q: The action scenes are so fast, and the fights so well described. Can you tell us more about your process?
A: I’m glad fans and reviewers are saying that! Contrary to what we see in movies, real life hand to hand combat and even gun fights, happen very quickly. My martial arts background, and firearms training definitely helps, and I have a great technical advisor and contacts with specialist skill-sets. I rehearse most of the fight scenes myself, and have someone time them with a stopwatch. They are real in the sense that the techniques are real, the speed is real, the effect is real.
When I read spy stories or any action thriller, I'm looking for action that is fast, intelligent, and stretches the boundaries of the genre. So naturally, that's what I love to write as well.
Q: Momentum is part one of the action thriller series, how many parts will there be?
A: Good question. “The Clock” action thriller series will officially have three parts. Part one and two are available now, with the third coming soon. I’m about to release a Prequel to Momentum, titled “Dark Days”. Watch this space.
So, chronologically the series will look like this;
1. Dark Days (prequel Novella)
2. Momentum (part 1)
3. The Hunted (part 2)
4. Redemption (part 3)
