I’ll Just Write A Story

J.F.T. Author Interview

Somewhere Enchanted follows a warrior who must brave a cursed forest to save his village. What was the inspiration behind the setup to this intriguing story?

To tell you the truth since the age of 12 maybe younger and I just can’t remember, I’ve been writing short stories in their numbers, I just sit down put pen on paper and the stories come flooding through… with this story, I couldn’t sleep one night, being strongly irritated by a condition I wish to keep private for now, so I thought ‘damn it I’ll just write a story’, this was to be the first time doing it in more than twenty years… soon as I put pen on paper despite the pain and heavy distraction my illness caused, the story came flooding through… Using notepad on my phone and Safari (for reserch) I was able to complete the first full draft in a few hours…

Grettos is a captivating character and I appreciated how you established his character in a few lines. How did you plan his character development?

I just let the story flow through, I let the story dictate and determine the roles and attributes the character should possess, constantly going back to make adjustments according to what direction the story went…

I enjoyed the world you’ve created in this story. Will you expand this world in other stories?

Maybe not all because I have many fresh new stories in my back catalog with whole new worlds to be described, I might not have the time to return back to this project, but if I receive many requests for it I might be convinced to return or expand it… In my opinion 90% of sequels don’t hold up to their predecessor… My true preference is to leave that world alone and move on to a new world… maybe leave it for someone else with a fresher outlook to expand on, that’ll be more fun…

What is the next novel that you are working on and when will it be available?

I’m torn between 2 or 3 stories (depending on how you look at it), I drafted one titled “Everything You Hoped For” which is a YA book about a young man who goes through certain stages in his earlier life to gain acceptance from himself and society, but a lot of things happen as he (and readers who relate to the character) ultimately gets all he’s hoped for… then I want to create a contrasting story sort of like an alternative to it called “Everthing You Could Have Hoped For” which will offer another direction to the same story, the audiobook version will also have different narrators to spice things up and both stories will be released at the same time… I want to do something different to what’s being done today…

So that’s 2 stories or one story in 2 versions, depending on how you want to look at it…

The 3rd story be a thriller Fiction story, about something that hunts a Prince and his family, that’s all I want to give away on that one, except that it would be titled “Vengeful Strike” If you’ve seen the trailer of the “Somewhere Enchanted” audiobook, you’ll notice the narrator of the trailer – different from the book’s narrator- has a unique voice (trailer link included below), I wish to use him in this story should he be available at the time…
