Author Overlord Sat down with Dr. Man to talk about becoming an author

Author Overlord: Please tell me a little about how you became a writer.

Dr. Man: when I was in grade school, instead of sports, I took an early interest in writing, starting with poetry and coming up with my own characters in creative writing class.

AO: What makes your detective series unique?

DM: All of the characters in the Pete Jackson series are people that've been thrown away by society, or worst yet their own families!"

AO: How long have you been writing? And have you been able to make a living of it?

DM: All together, about twenty years; I've done stage plays in my local auditorium, it was a lot of work, headaches but they turned out good, as far as making a living of it, I'm afraid not.

AO: Tell us about a memorable moment that inspired a scene/chapter/entire book.

DM: I really can't because I keep my eyes and ears open all the time, suddenly I run across somebody I knew back in the day running wild, now they're doing something meaningful. Most of the characters in my books fall in that category.

AO: What/Who are your influences?

DM: Anybody that could write a good mystery from Arthur Conan Doyle, to Mickey Spillane, I love a good mystery or an even better detective!

AO: What struggles have you found when trying to advertise your book? [Have you gone to conventions, done other interviews, book signings/readings, etc?]

DM: The best way for any author to be noticed is by advertisement, and that's still doesn't mean that you're going to get a huge book deal; you can put your book out there and it still won't sell, or it might and still no publisher will call; a lot of good writers have gone to their graves leaving behind beautiful works; all I can say is, if you know your writings good, keep swinging!

AO: That's good advice. Personally I think the top reason most writers fail today is just giving up. Success comes from perseverance. What good/bad/ridiculous feedback have you received that particularly sticks out in your mind?

DM: A close friend of mine tore my work to pieces, told me I need to copy the style from other authors; I can take the opinions of a critic; then she wanted to send her more books...You can't copy nobody's style, you have to do it your way!

AO: Exactly. Be yourself. What happened in your life that transformed you from a reader to an author?

DM: This character Pete Jackson has been in my head for years; we need a hero to read about dealing with reality, somebody who could get the job done, with a little help.

AO: Pete Jackson sounds like the guy we need. Final thoughts?

DM: If you crave a good crime mixed in with a lot of mystery, hitch your wagon to Pete Jackson private detective!

AO: Sounds great. Thanks Dr. Man. You can pick up the Pete Jackson Private Detective books below direct from Amazon. All come in eBook format, and most in paperback. Enjoy!
