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

A. I decided after a couple of nights of telling these stories to my sons before bed. My wife overheard me talking to them and suggested I record myself so after talking for 15 minutes past their bedtime one night. It turned into the first 3 or 4 pages of my first book. 

Q.2 how did you come up with the name of your books 

A. The Adventures of Melvin Walker came about funny actually. He started out as a monkey in the zoo. However, I felt it wasn’t right to try and compete with Curious George. So I based Melvin off of me growing up in NYC and my sons growing up here in VA. 


Q. 3 what are you working on now for 20 18?

A. I just finished book #3 Melvin Learns How To Code. It’s all about the STEM. This one will be out later this Fall. After that, I’ll be working on a pilot episode for the animated series. 



Q 4. how long have you been writing?

A.: I’ve been writing professionally now going on 4 years. 



Q 5. What advice would you give other authors?

A. Don’t take No for an answer. It just means not right now. You can do anything for yourself you don’t have to wait on someone else to help you make your dreams come true. Don’t ever give up on your passion. 


Q 6.  where can people find you online?

A.people can go to my website. www.melvinbookseries.com there you can keep up with all things Melvin and see where I’m going to be next. 

Q7 do you plan on making more books in the future 

A.es all of 2019 I’ll be working on the animated series and one other film project. So in 2020 hopefully I’ll be working on my first chapter book. 

Q 8 how many books have you written 

A.books total. Melvin Goes to the Ballpark, Melvin Learns How To Swim, and Melvin Learns How To Code. 

Q 9 did you go to college to be a writer

A.No I didn’t go to school to be a writer. I never saw myself as an author. I was in the music business as an executive for some years. I just recently went back to school and got my Bachelors in Business. So it’s never too late I’m 44.

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.
