Fun stuff:


If you could go back in time, where would you go? 


I would go back to my first year of high school. I was a track athlete, and unfortunately, I met too many people who took advantage of me. Avoiding those people would’ve improved things, and I’d be much further in my career. I’d also avoid the scammers in the book industry and inexperienced people or companies claiming to have helped authors and do business with those I am with today. I would’ve saved thousands of dollars.


Favorite travel spot? Barbados


What’s the scariest thing that ever happened to you? My most terrifying event was when I visited Louisiana. My friends and I were on our way back to New Orleans. We were in a rural area, driving on a two-lane state route at night, when a deer surprised us. My friend swerved to avoid hitting it. He almost lost control, and we spun around and wound up on the opposite side of the road facing the other way. There was an oncoming vehicle in the distance that slowed down in time. The strangest part was that I heard a “bump” as though we had hit the deer. We got out of the car, shaken. But we couldn’t find the deer. We checked the road and the car for blood spatter, and there was none. Had it not been for my friend’s quick reflexes, we could’ve flown into the ditch, rolled over several times, and even been killed. 


What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done?  During an office meeting, I called out my former boss for being a two-faced, corrupt, and lying bastard. I stated facts about him being in conflicts of interest and how he engaged in and helped cover up discriminatory practices—all of which he was incapable of refuting. I quit soon after.


Any hobbies?  I play the violin.


If there is one thing you want readers to remember about you, what would it be? I want them to remember me as the author that kept them up late at night that they woke up late for work.


 What TV series are you currently binge watching?  I’m not presently binge-watching anything. The last show I binge-watched was Jack Ryan.


Jam Run is a gripping crime thriller about the ever-present menace and violence the LGBTQ community faces daily.”
