Interviewing Author Barry K. Nelson

Q1. Tell me about your self what are your favorite books to read?

A. I live in the Pittsburgh PA area. I'm 59, but I look a lot younger for my age. I'm a long time science fiction and Marvel comics fan. I like to read books by other sci-fi writers. As well as WW 2 history.

Q2. when did you decide you were going to write a book?

A. I've always had a natural talent for writing. Way back in 2007 I decided to finally put my creative energies to work and write my first novel. That's pretty much the birth of my McKenzie Files series.

Q3. How did you come up with the name of your books?

A. I took the name McKenzie Files from my lead character, Colin McKenzie.

Q4. What are you working on for 2019?

A. I'm currently working on a graphic novel adaptation of my first McKenzie Files book. After that, I'm finally going to start working again on my WW2 horror novel, Dogs of War. Then McKenzie Files Book 5. I am so behind on the things I want to do.

Q5.  How long have you been writing?

A. Since 200

Q6. What advice would you give other authors? 

A. Don't let rejections discourage you from reaching your goal of being published. I've collected a stack of rejection letters that are five inches thick. But I kept going until I finally landed that one golden acceptance letter from a publisher.

Q7. .where can people find you online?

A. You can easily find me on Facebook under Barry K. Nelson.  I also have a separate McKenzie Files page that's filled with a lot of fun things. https://www.facebook.com/McKenzieFilesSeries/

Q8.  Do you plan on making more books in the future?

A.  Oh absolutely. I'd like to do the amazing task of squeezing thirty books out of my series before I conclude it. And I have a few other ideas that I'd like to pursue.

Q9. How many books have you written?

A. I've written a total of seven so far. Four books in My McKenzie Files series. McKenzie Files Book One.  Assassination Anxiety, McKenzie Files Book Two. Obliteration and Maximum Deevor, Books Three and four. Both soon to be released by my publisher, Dreaming Big Publications. As well as a stand-alone book titled, Evil Walks. I've also self-published novella titled Hybreeders. And an art portfolio book, The Dark Threshold. Both books can be found on Amazon.

Q10. did you go to college to be a writer?

A. No. I've always had this talent. The more writing I've done the better I've gotten at it.

I would like to say Thank you to Author Barry Nelson for allowing me the honor to interview him on my blog. 

Enjoy reading Angelika

Q1.when did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. It was a part of my bucket list, but finally in 2014, decided to go about to actually doing it. 
Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 
A. The first book ‘Shreya’s Eighth’ was easy as it is about Shreya’s 8th birthday...but to leave the children guessing decided to skip the word ‘birthday’ from it. Similarly, the second is named Samira’s SIT venture which is about the SIT- the Stay Indoor Tournament. The book is set during the rainy season so the name seemed appropriate. The third is ‘The Three on a spree’. This was a tough one...as about planning for a vacation. Then realized shopping before a vacation is all that children think of so that the pictures come out great! 😊 The fourth book ‘The Braces Club’ is about a Braces club so...😊

Q1. when did you decide you were going to write a book?

Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 
A. The name of the book is the name of one of the main characters, and it so well encapsulates the driving source of the conflict that it seemed more than more fitting.

Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?
A. I am currently working on two projects. The first is the next in the series after Lonesome Wolf. I'm loving the character more than I thought possible! The second is a western in the style of Louis L'Amour. It is interesting to me because I usually run to romances.
Q 4. how long have you been writing?
