Interviewing Author John Brage
Q1. Tell me about your self what are your favorite books to read?
A. I’m a lawyer by day. I’m married and have 2 kids (15 and 11). In my free time, I like to fish and help coach my son’s baseball team
Q2.when did you decide you were going to write a book?
A. I decided to write my first book in around 2011. I spend two hours per day commuting to/from work and one day this story idea just popped into my head. I thought about it during my commutes for probably a couple of months before deciding to just write it all down.
Q3. How did you come up with the name of your books?
A. The Protocols of Uma got its title bc of the role that set of legal rules plays in the title. Blinding Sky is a reference to an event that occurs during that story.
Q4. What are you working on for 2019?
A. I’m in the last phase of finishing Journeys End, the last book in my sci-fi trilogy.
Q5. How long have you been writing?
A.. I’ve been writing seriously for about 8 years.
Q6. What advice would you give other authors?
A. Join writer groups, either in person or on the internet. They are a wealth of information. Don’t write to make money becouse the odds are that you won’t. Write becouse you like to write.
Q7.where can people find you online?
A. I have a John Brage - author page on Facebook. I also have a page on Smashwords (my first book is free!), Amazon, and Goodreads.
Q8. Do you plan on making more books in the future?
A. Not sure. I have a couple of stories that have been brewing in the back of my head. However, the time commitment is formidable and I have a lot of adult responsibilities. I used to write after my kids went to bed so it wouldn’t interfere with family time, but now they stay up later than I do!
Q9. How many books have you written?
A. I’ve self-published 2 and am almost finished with #3.
Q10 did you go to college to be a writer?
A.. No. I was a History major in college and then went to law school. I do think that background has had a big influence on my writing.
