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.

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
