How much of the book is realistic? I guess it would depend on your definition of realistic. I don’t believe people would be kidnapped and put into a gruesome experiment. However, I hope that the characters I have written are real to the reader and that they invoke anger, sadness, joy, and other emotions.
Have you included a lot of your life experiences, even friends, in the plot? Very much so! When I write, I try and take my own emotions from life experiences and place them into the story. Sometimes I take the personalities of friends and make them into characters, though most of the time, a character contains a different aspect of me in some way, whether it’s a habit they have, or the way they speak.
How important do you think villains are in a story? I think it depends on who the villain is and what their motives are. Villains can create much needed conflict and move along the story’s plot. At the same time, a story doesn’t always need an antagonist.
What are your goals as a writer? My goal is to write stories that shape your reality and challenge your thinking. Will every story do that? Maybe not, but I enjoy trying!
Do you have to travel much concerning your book(s)? Not yet! But maybe someday!
What books have most influenced your life? The Circle Trilogy by Ted Dekker has influenced my life the most. I couldn’t recommend them highly enough. The story is thrilling!
Have you ever considered anyone as a mentor? I’ve never really had a mentor in my life. I hope to have one someday!
Have you started another book yet? I’m currently working on the second book in The Midas Trilogy. The first book, Erased, is soon to be in the hands of an editor.
Where do you see yourself in five years? I have no idea. I like taking things one day at a time!
What are your current writing projects now? I’m promoting BoX, all the while trying to prepare Erased for editing, working on the second book of The Midas Trilogy, and planning a secret project for the future!
How far would you go to save yourself? Would you compromise your religion, morals, or integrity to avoid death?

In each cube is a pistol. During any test an individual can use the gun to end the torment and take their own life. In doing so, they believe the test would immediately end for everyone and potentially save the lives of others.
Would you lay down your life to save another? Would you pass the tests?
It’s the ultimate trial for human nature and the will to stay alive.
Would you survive the experiment?
