The Superuser ($2.99 on Kindle) 
A disgraced champion must catch the deadliest poker cheat of all time: the Superuser.

3.            Who or what inspired you to write?

I was inspired to write this thriller based on the real-life poker Superuser scandal, which I felt held deep themes of greed, violence, power, and redemption.  My goal was to reflect these themes and the excitement of the scandal in a fast-paced thriller.

4.            How do you come up with the Title and Cover Designs for your book/books?Who designed the Cover of your books?

My wife and co-author, Katie, had playing cards and red-dyed corn syrup on our kitchen table for almost a week creating this cover!

Not directly, but several friends’ names were used for fun.

Michael Connelly, John Grisham, John Locke, and Simon Wood have all heavily influenced my fiction writing.

7.            Which format of book do you prefer, ebook,hardback, or paperback?

8.            What are you currently reading? Are you enjoying it? What format is it?(ebook, hardback or paperback)

I’m currently reading the indie thriller Toxicity on my Kindle after chatting with the author on an online forum.  It’s a great police procedural so far. 

9.            What piece of advice would you give to a new writer?

Spend a lot of time outlining your characters and the plot before you begin writing.  Also, have respect for your reader’s time.  Particularly in the mystery/thriller genre, it’s vital to keep a fast pace.
