Story Title: Get Your Kicks on Route 66
A man, recently diagnosed with lung cancer, decides to travel Route 66 as his last hurrah.
What inspired you to write this story?
My dad did Route 66 a few years ago and decided to do it again this year. It was around the time he decided to go again that I had the idea for the story.
How long have you been writing?
Since around 2013, had an idea while in the shower, which I am working on as my first novel.
What genre do you usually write in and why?
The novel I am working on is a Crime Thriller, which I hope will be the beginning of a series.
What else are you working on at the moment?
My novel needs some attention after a hiatus to write Get Your Kicks ... and I am developing ideas for A Haunting of Words.
What advice do you have to give to new writers?
Write as often as you can and never give up. Join a writing group of fellow writers to learn from such as Fiction Writing on Facebook.
How can people discover more about you and your work?
Find me on Facebook and my blog/website.
