Underground Street Crime

John Wilkie Author Interview

Underground in Tinseltown follows a young aspiring actor as he risks it all to make his dreams come true, the reality is far different from what he expected. Did you create an outline for the characters in the story before you started writing or did the characters personalities grow organically as you were writing?

These characters are based on a true story. However, the names were changed – and no one would admit to the original situation as being authentic. So, as it is now ‘hearsay’ and forensic recreations, we call the story ‘Basis on a True story’ dramatization.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

Realities of the entertainment ‘Hollywood’ system – and underground street crime in the 1980’s.

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

‘The Solar Obliteration Experiment’ – now available on Amazon Books.
