Chrononaut (Author Interview)

Chrononaut looks like an exciting story.  Can you tell us a little about John?

John is basically an average guy who is pulled into this unique situation by happenstance. The goal was to make him as relatable as possible while also giving him a unique personality.


Any plans to turn it into a series?

I was thinking about it. I could either do a direct sequel from the point of view of another character or an indirect sequel that takes place in the same world by is a new story.


That’s an amazing cover.  Can you tell us a little about it?

Well, I wanted a cover that invoked the essence of the story. My goal was to have an image that anyone would see and say, "that looks interesting."

What inspired you when writing Chrononaut?  

It is story that I had in my mind for years. I first drafted for a class by making it a choose your own adventure type game. Then, I decided write the actual story. The game is still playable at


What will readers get out of your book?

I think readers will like how mysterious yet fun the story is. It's the type of book you can get lost it and finish fairly quickly.


How did you come up with the story and ideas in Chrononaut?

I actually came up with the idea watching the television show Heroes, where one the characters had the ability to freeze time, teleport, and travel through time. I thought, what if there was a world in which multiple people had these powers, and what if these people were at war with each other.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Chrononaut?

Since the game version of the story is told as if the player is in John shoes, the biggest challenge was converting that into a cohesive story told in third person.


What do you like to do when not writing?

I spend time with my family and friends. I am married with children, and work both a full-time and park-time job, so I like to get my time in with them where ever I can.

Sidhe: Of Danu Book One

College Freshman discovers she is a rare fae and is endangered by the fae and human machinations; protected by her beautiful Hawthorn Knight.

Ella Darling is seventeen and from Tennessee. During her first semester at Columbia, she befriends her dorm neighbor, Debra. Debra notices that Ella, like herself, is not human. On the Fall Equinox, gathering in the wilds of the Fairey forest, Debra decides to bring Ella to give her a crash course in what they are: fae.

While playing music with a large band of very colorful and diverse fae, Ella begins to shine-- literally. As she spends the evening reveling with the fae, the last seals are broken over her latent power, and she is revealed to be the first new Sidhe to be born in thousands of years.
Ella’s very existence proves threatening to more than just the royals and nobles of her people. A shadowy human group seeking to destroy the fae begins hunting Ella. Enter her sexy protector, Nieve (Spelled Niamh in Gaelic-Irish). She is a tall, beautiful fairy with large butterfly-like wings. She calls herself the Hawthorn Knight, and she swears to keep Ella safe from danger.

Ella also meets a centuries-old adoptive sister, who is now the head of a group that polices both worlds from the presence of an insidious organization called Sphinx, which uses immortal blood to achieve longevity, fairies being the most potent. Ella searches out the goddess Danu, forcing her return to the fae folk. She struggles to find a peaceful co-existence with several warring factions that don’t seem to have a single reason to permit her to breathe. She also digs deep into the mysteries as to why the fae are failing to have pureblood children, and the Sidhe are slowly fading away with each death.

During her inadvertent adventure into the world known as Fairey, Ella uncovers a plot to depose the Regent of the throne. Ella must protect herself, and her family, then she makes unexpected alliances (with the wild fairy centaurs and their God, Pan).

Her group of friends, and her very lovely Hawthorn Knight turn the tides of a major immortal human invasion into the fae court. Ella even catches the attention of the goddess Danu when she nearly dies saving the day from a traitorous Sidhe noble who fancied herself the next queen, even if she opened the portals to Fairey, to many of its worst enemies in the process.

The Singer (Author Interview)

The Singer looks like an exciting story.  Can you tell us a little about Scott Bailey?

Scott is a lawyer, and he’s also a singer and composer (like me, the author of the book and the composer of the songs). He’s married with 3 children.

A big city lawyer for years, he’s gotten burned-out in the grind and wants to move to a smaller town that has lots of music to pursue being
THE SINGER. (I sing the songs, but in the story Scott sings the songs and adds depth and personal impact to the story through the songs.


Any plans to turn it into a series?



How long did it take you to write The Singer

2 years, but I’ve composed the 12 songs over the past 10 years.


That’s an amazing cover.  Can you tell us a little about it?

The mountains represent Colorado USA (John Denver’s song: Rocky Mountain High)

The guitar represents the music: a 12 song soundtrack that follows the storyline of the book, thus adding personal impact and emotion.


What inspired you when writing The Singer?
I’m a lawyer, like Scott Bailey in the story, and I was a nightclub singer earlier (I built my law practice signing in nightclubs and bars, and passing out business cards at the breaks. What better place to meet people who need an attorney? The Denver Post and Rocky Mountain News did articles on me: “The Singing Attorney” == “The Court Jester.”

Years ago (in what I call his ‘B.C.’ days – before he was a celebrity) I sang with singer John Denver for a few weeks. The lead song, ‘THE SINGER’ is written in tribute to him.


What will readers get out of your book?

Good feelings, hope, faith, peace and thoughts of restoration, even dealing with life’s problems (the story is adultery and reconciliation in marriage).

There is also a TEEN element in the book. Megan, Scott Bailey’s teen daughter plays a major role – confronting her dad’s hypocrisy as he urges her to remain chaste while he goes out and commits adultery.

It has a good, happy ending. Also, the book has a lot of good gospel thoughts and counseling for people dealing with problems.


How did you come up with the story in The Singer?

I’m both a lawyer and a singer / composer.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing The Singer?

No, except that a friend who read it in advance gave me the idea of including Megan, Scott’s daughter in the story for another perspective.


Can you tell us a little about yourself?

I just did somewhat: singer, lawyer, earlier working in nightclubs.
I’m married to Leenie for all my life. We’ve lived in Colorado for longer than I can even remember. 

We just purchased a lodge in Hill City, South Dakota USA, about 15 minutes from Mount Rushmore:

This was after operating a wedding venue in Evergreen, Colorado USA for years:  but just sold it recently.

I used to humorously tell people: “I used to be a lawyer, who got people divorced. Now I own a wedding business and get people married. I like it better and I know God likes it better.”


Where can readers find out more about your work?

I’m known on the internet as ‘the Gospel Life Coach.” I offer FREE Christian books (mostly shorter booklets):
Jesus and Paul didn’t charge for teaching the gospel and I don’t either.



Our Lady of the Artilects (Author Interview)

Our Lady of the Artilects looks like an exciting story.  What can you tell us about it?

It’s been called “Catholic cyberpunk,” sort of a “the Exorcist meets Westworld” kind of story. 

It begins with the revelation that some artilects (androids) have recently experienced what appears to be a somewhat apocalyptic Marian apparition, similar to the one at Fatima in the early 20th Century. Authorities hope to dismiss it as a hoax, but then an artilect belonging to Amari Okpara, the wealthiest man in Africa, shows up at a basilica claiming to be possessed.  The Church sends Fr. Gabriel Serafian–an exorcist who used to be a neuroscientist–to Nigeria to investigate.

He pretty quickly finds himself swept up into a conspiracy of global, and possibly supernatural, scope. 


Any plans to turn it into a series?

 Yes, I’m working on the sequel, which will be titled “The Lucifer Particles.”  It will pick up shortly where OLotA leaves off.  Depending on what happens, there may also be a third book.


How long did it take you to write Our Lady of the Artilects?

That’s always such a loaded question! The short answer is 7 months.  The long answer is “my whole life.”

This is a deeply personal story of faith and doubt, the intersection of science and belief. I grew up an evangelical Protestant, studied religion in college, and lost my faith. I found my way back to it through science and ultimately converted to Roman Catholicism about 10 years ago.  I ended up going back to school for a master’s degree in data science–I’m about halfway through the program. The book is really a reflection of all those experiences.


What inspired you when writing Our Lady of the Artilects?

 I’m a huge fan of the writings of Malachi Martin.  He passed away some years ago, but he wrote some of the most chilling and accurate accounts of actual exorcisms ever recorded.  He was a towering intellect who also had some unique insights into the organizational structure of the conciliar Church and what I would call “sacramental history.”

Beyond that, my earliest memories of reading are of JRR Tolkien and CS Lewis.  Later on, I discovered metaphysical sci fi writers like Frank Herbert, Philip K Dick, Asimov, and the great Walter Miller, who wrote A Canticle for Leibowitz–the gold standard for Catholic sci fi.

I’m also a wannabe neuroscientist, and I think that VS Ramachandran is one of the greatest scientific minds of the last 100 years.  That’s saying a lot, given how far science has progressed in that time! His theories on mirror neuron evolution and the neuroscience of aesthetics were very influential.

Finally, there is a Sufi Shayk in Canada named Nur Muhammed who has fascinating ideas on the moral dimension of modern digital culture.  I really enjoy his YouTube videos.


Can you tell us a little about Father Gabriel Serafian?

 He’s a complicated character, and I hope an interesting one.  He had some neurological issues as a child, which led him to get “noetic implants” at an exceptionally young age. He had a brilliant career as an artificial neuroscientist and coder and was engaged to an astrophysicist. When he and his fiancee had a miscarriage, he left his old life behind to join the church, where he found himself apprenticed to an eccentric Irish exorcist. He’s naturally curious, but he struggles to reconcile his scientific knowledge and his commitment to God.


How did you come up with the story in Our Lady of the Artilects?

 It’s been on my mind for quite some time. I’m interested in the ethical and spiritual issues around transhumanism. As a Roman Catholic, I think transhumanism will be the single greatest challenge to St. Pope John Paul II’s theology of the body in the second half of the 21st century. So many moral arguments are rooted in the idea that human nature is immutable. Transhumanism strikes at the very heart of that, and it will require a vigorous response from not only Catholics but Muslims, Protestants, Hindus, Buddhists, and ethical humanists alike.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Our Lady of the Artilects?

 I wanted above all to write a book that honestly dealt with questions about faith and science, and what it means to be a human in the digital age. I have a point of view, of course, but I wanted to do justice to all of the arguments. There’s nothing worse than a preachy book!


What do you like to do when not writing?

 I work in digital marketing, so that keeps me pretty busy.  When I’m not working, I’m with my wife Cheryl and my two young boys Finn and Rowan.  I really should find a hobby.

Rain No Evil (Author Interview)

Rain No Evil looks like an exciting, true story.  Give us the gist in a nutshell.

After a powerful prayer for change, a portal opened in my home in West Virginia and allowed in entities that sprayed water inexplicably inside of my home where my police officer hubby and two boys lived with me. Friends and family witnessed this phenomenon along with other apparitions such as orbs and busted tires in locked garages. An out-of-body experience led me to a priest who exorcised the house and to a shamanic healer who removed the negative attachments to my energy field.

I healed from the panic attacks I was having and pushed passed trying to understand why this had happened to me and into acceptance that this entire metaphysical awareness was the catalyst for the change I desired.

This experience transformed my life from living a miserable life in a verbally abusive relationship to helping others to peer into the unseen realms and to discover their life path. I am excited to share this incredible story of transformation! I didn’t ask for this to happen, but I am glad it did. We don’t always know what we need but God, or the universal life force does.

What was this about a car named Leslie Mann hitting your car?  Talk about synchronicity! A lady backed into my car and as we exchanged insurance information, I find out her birthday is the same day as mine and she had just purchased her car that week and named it Leslie Mann after her favorite actress! I have always wanted Leslie Mann to play me if it became a movie! I reached into my trunk and handed her a Rain No Evil book! So she crashes into my car and I give her a book! That’s some good karma right there!

LOGLINE: A woman prays for liberation from a verbally abusive husband, but the demon in the mirror and the water drenching the inside of her home may cause her to lose her family, her mind and maybe even her life.


Any plans to turn it into a series?

No, but I can see a movie! The screenplay version is in the finals at the New York International Film Festival. It’s cool, creepy, sexy, funny and brings enlightenment to the forefront.


What was the highpoint of promoting this book?

I shared this story with over 3 million folks from all around the world on George Noory’s Coast to Coast. I sat in my mom’s floor and cried. It was quite healing to do this after years of having panic attacks when speaking.


What inspired you when writing Rain No Evil?   

I was compelled to share with everyone I met. I’d taught English for twenty years, so writing a book seemed reasonable. Laughing because I just dove in and thought okay, so I’m going to write a book.

Bonus: Signed copy of book when order directly from my website under PayPal or Venmo tab.


How did you come up with the story in Rain No Evil?

I experienced this story first-hand. I wrote it as a creative fiction so I could escalate the pace to keep things interesting, not that the story was dull by any means. HA


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Rain No Evil?

Just making the time to write was challenging, but I did because it was an incredible, life-changing experience I needed to share with the world.


What do you like to do when not writing?

When I’m not life-coaching clients in my holistic healing business, I hit hot yoga, hike or travel. I enjoy family time and nothing sweeter than the smiles they bring.

The Intransigence (Author Interview)

The Intransigence looks like an exciting dystopian fiction book.  What can you tell us about it?

The Intransigence is a Young Adult Dystopian fiction novel centering around a young woman, Rossana, who was cryogenically frozen and wakes up in a world devoid of language.


How long did it take you to write The Intransigence?

I started writing The Intransigence in 2019 and just finished this year, so about three years, with a break in the middle. The break allowed me to take a fresh look at the story, the characters, and the ideas themselves to format them into something that would work best for the intended audience.


What inspired you when writing The Intransigence?

When I started writing The Intransigence, I had been studying energy and quantum physics and became certified in something called the Emotion Code. This study inspired to me to see possibilities outside of our physical norm.


Can you tell us a little about the main character?

Rossana is 16 but was, essentially, frozen in time when she was cryogenically frozen before dying of cancer. She grew up an only child and was the center of her parents world. Throughout the novel, she comes to grips with how she views herself and how her parents viewed her to become who she truly is.


What will readers get out of your book?

My hope is that readers will see that life is more than the physical world around us and that there is so much outside our realm of understanding. The belief in miracles, supernatural, and more can help to bring hope to readers of all ages.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing The Intransigence?

For me, endings are often the most challenging because I base my stories off of real life, and real life doesn’t have any endings, not even in death really. So finding a way to bring the story to a close was definitely the most challenging.


What do you like to do when not writing?

When I’m not writing, I love being part of and watching anything musical theatre/Broadway. I also love spending time with my dog Hamilton and exploring outdoors with my boyfriend, Mike.

The Fluffy Kerfuffle (Author Interview)

The Fluffy Kerfuffle is a great name and looks like a great children’s book.  What can you tell us a little about the story?

The Fluffy Kerfuffle details the silly adventures of cats who live for the sole purpose of driving their pet humans insane.


What age group is the book for?

This book is content appropriate for the whole family to enjoy, but the reading level is for older kids. Younger kids will have an easy time understanding, so long as the book is read to them.


How long did it take you to write The Fluffy Kerfuffle?

It took several months to complete The Fluffy Kerfuffle.


What inspired you when writing The Fluffy Kerfuffle?   

The idea behind The Fluffy Kerfuffle came about while I was watching my cats play. It was the charming shenanigans that they got up to which inspired this debut book.


What will readers get out of your book?

This is humorous entertainment for the whole family to enjoy. Also, any aspiring cat owners will get a sneak peek into what awaits them.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing The Fluffy Kerfuffle?

As this is the first novel I have ever published and as I had no prior experience in the book industry before The Fluffy Kerfuffle, it was a challenge to get this book published. But now that I have published my first novel, it makes all the hardships I overcame to get here worth it.


What do you like to do when not writing?

I mostly study, as I’m going to university in a couple years. I intend to get a degree in digital marketing, so I can spread my writing to readers globally. Aside from schoolwork, I enjoy spending time with my cats.



Lamplight looks like a fun historical fiction book.  What can you tell us about it?

It’s a new take with interesting twists on the old fables of King Arthur. I put alot of thought into adding elements of things I enjoy, like Nikola Tesla and Jack the Ripper. It’s a modern retelling of old stories with a mixture of whodunnits, fantasy, and thriller.


That’s an amazing cover.  Can you tell us a little about it?

I took a while to find the right artist to do it for me. It’s a scene that I always saw in my head and wanted it to be the cover, I simply love it.


What inspired you when writing Lamplight?

I had a dream one night and it stuck with me. I eventually molded things around it, smashed it up and made something new.


Can you tell us a little about Davey O’Shea?

He is an everyday, normal person. He is thrust into a situation that he can’t say no to, something that seems impossible. Davey is a character I wanted to be easy to relate with because even though he doesn’t think he will succeed, he can do more than what he thinks is possible.


What will readers get out of your book?

Enjoyment I hope. I just want people to enjoy it. I want to talk to them and find out what their favorite parts were, their favorite characters and everything in between.


What motivated you to become a writer?

I wanted to write a story my late grandfather would enjoy. I also wanted to accomplish something, so I said, why not?


How did you come up with the story in Lamplight?

Just an amalgamation of cool stuff I find interesting. I took inspiration from things I’ve seen and read and added my own flair and ideas to them.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Lamplight?

Keeping it interesting fiction wise while incorporating historically accurate events and situations. I also didn’t want to glorify Jack the Ripper too much, his victims, even though it has been over a hundred years, need to be respected.


What do you like to do when not writing?

Audiobooks. I love movies and music too, basic stuff hah.

Where can readers find out more about your work?

I have an Instagram, @adavidbarrett and I also have a website where I showcase my 4 podcasts as well as my friends book too.

Hezekiah (Author Interview)

Hezekiah looks like a great young adult fantasy book.  What can you tell us about it?

At its heart, Hezekiah is about family, friendship, and freewill. It’s written from Hez’s perspective and his style adjusts through the book based on what’s going on in his life at that time.

In the beginning the story details Hez’s difficult life. Some members of his family suffer from mental illness, Hez is mentally and physically abused, and he has absolutely no freewill. He’s raised in a cult like religion that does not permit independent thinking. In time, Hez realizes he has fantastic abilities that let him visit other realms inhabited by special beings that he can bring back for protection and friendship. He develops a special bond with one in particular who he names Vrail.

His life hits a turning point after an experimentation with his ability goes poorly and he ends up in the hands of Gods Own. He learns there are others with powers and he has to decide whether to trust them and join a war he did not know existed, or stay isolated and in hiding.


How long did it take you to write Hezekiah?

It took around 4 years to finish writing it. The first third of the book was difficult to write and once I completed that part, I paused the story. After taking a break for a few months I continued with the rest of the book which really took the story in an enjoyable direction and it let Hez have some happiness in his life. I made so many edits after that. I wanted to make sure I was portraying all of the characters and what they mean to me correctly.

The next book has been moving much quicker and I have the first part drafted and I’m well into the second part. I’ve found that I really like having three parts in my books.

That’s an amazing cover.  Can you tell us a little about it?

I am not at all a visually creative person so I sought help. I reviewed many design portfolios online and came across one for Luisa Galstyan. Immediately I knew she was the person I wanted to create the cover. Her style is very fairytale and that was what I had imagined for Hezekiah and his friends. I told Luisa a bit about the story and the characters who are most important to me and she fully executed two designs for me and I love them both. She found ways to bring in hints about the various characters abilities and that was an amazing surprise.

What motivated you to become a writer?

When I was in third grade I wrote a short story about a monkey who finds a magic banana that let him grow to the size of a skyscraper. He then wielded the banana like a sword to defend the city from giant monsters. After finishing that story, I knew I wanted to write stories and share them with others.


How did you come up with the story in Hezekiah?

Vrail and a handful of the characters in the book were my imaginary friends growing up. When I decided it was time to fulfill my dream and write and publish a book, I knew it had to be about them and this fantastical reality I’ve carried with me for much of my life. Vrail is by far the character that means the most to me, but my test readers all loved a character named Boone.

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Hezekiah?

Writing about abuse, the reality of mental illness, and the impact of a destructive religion in the first part of the book. That’s a hard thing to do. A theme through Hez’s story is around when people are and are not responsible for their actions and who gets to make those decisions.


What do you like to do when not writing?

I’m always reading at least three books, I love to hike and wish I had more opportunities to do it, and over the past few years I’ve amped up my crocheting.


Where can readers find out more about your work?

So, I’ve never been a fan of social media/networking, but I’ve finally created some accounts on TwitterInstagramFacebook, and TikTok. I’ve really only started posting on Twitter. I did have a small website created too and I plan on posting updates and some more information there.

Voodoo Child (Author Interview)

Voodoo Child looks like an exciting science fiction adventure.  What can you tell us about it?

Voodoo Child is my debut novel, introducing Viktoriya, the main protagonist of the story. It is Book One of “The Spectrum” series. Set in the near future, she is a very peculiar girl, living on the autistic Spectrum—specifically with High Functioning Autism. So, she is an ‘unlikely hero’ and overcomes many sociological challenges as she comes of age as a marginalized young woman. She is the daughter of principal scientists over the TITAN project, the massive orbital which finally ended global warming. It worked… but with consequences no one saw coming.

Earth is orbiting further from the sun. Time is running out before we fall into a hyper freeze that will render the planet uninhabitable. Viktoriya will do her best to save us all, but unknown and known dangers press close. What some consider a strange behavior may actually provide her with unique gifts that’ll help save humanity… If humanity can be saved.

She must overcome unique challenges, engage in fierce battles, and learn that sometimes the enemy closest to you is the most dangerous of all. And if she fails… well, she and the rest of the world won’t live long enough to cry about the loss.


How long did it take you to write Voodoo Child?

Probably about a year, working evenings and weekends. The story actually came to me many years ago, but I started and stopped it several times. My regular job as a Technical Architect takes all of my daytime hours, so I had to fit writing into evenings and weekends.


What inspired you when writing Voodoo Child?

I live with High Functioning Autism and noticed pretty much all my life, there were no heroes for ‘the rest of us’. My 11-year-old daughter is also a great creative soul and a source of inspiration to me, so I wanted to character to be a girl, in which I could express ‘girl-power’, ‘I can do it, ‘overcomer’, and belief in one’s self. That, and the fact I love science fiction seemed to merge together perfectly.


Can you tell us a little about Viktoriya and what makes her unique?

Viktoriya is not only on the Autistic Spectrum, she also begins to sense a Universal Spectrum in the universe, which it seems only she is aware of. As the Earth falls further into peril, her HFA allows her to see things others simply cannot. As the story progresses, she bonds more and more with the Spectrum, but can she get anyone to listen, or see things the way she does?


What will readers get out of your book?

I hope they see anyone, everyone can make a difference. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you come from, your sociological status or any of that. We can all make a difference and we are important. I think they’ll also get to enjoy some new concepts on space travel, quantum mechanics, supernatural phenomenon, and other great science fiction themes.


When did you decide to become a writer?

Fifteen years ago, but it was a slow start getting the words onto paper.


Is Voodoo Child a standalone book, or do you plan to make it into a series?

Voodoo Child is the first of a five-book series called “The Spectrum”. The series draws from the connected concepts of the themes: the Autistic Spectrum and the Universal Spectrum which Viktoriya uncovers.


How did you come up with the story in Voodoo Child?

I have what some may consider an over-active imagination, and I have loved science fiction for as long as I can remember.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Voodoo Child?

Yes, keeping my story chapters ordered the way that I needed, sticking to it, re-reading the manuscript for continuity and edits over a hundred times. It’s tough to stick to a project that large, the print page count is right at five hundred.


What do you like to do when not writing?

I like to code, 3D Model and Print, Paint, Sculpt and spend time with my wonderful daughter.
