Please join me in welcoming Will Graham to my blog. Will writes suspense/thrillers, creating fictional worlds that feel real with well-developed characters, witty dialog, peppered with intelligent humor, with a lot of vivid action, and splashes of romance.
Besides authoring great escapism for readers, Will is involved with PROTECT (a pro-child, anti-crime organization) by donating a portion of the proceeds of his books to this organization.
Details with links to purchase his books and help PROTECT listed below.
WILL: The single biggest piece of advice I would give my 18-year-old self is “Slow Down…. Adulthood is NOT all it is cracked up to be.” I think a lot of us feel that way; we didn’t really appreciate what our youth had to offer because we were in such a hurry to become Adults.
Selena: Yes, I can related. My parents always used to say to us, “never wish away time, it’s the one thing you can never do-over and get back.” I try to remember that.
You just won a yacht. What would you name it? Why?
WILL: I would name it THE FINALLY! which is pretty self-explanatory
Selena: Do you have a tattoo? If so, what is the graphic? If not, if you were to get a tattoo, what would the graphic be?
Selena: I feel the same way, not for me, and there’s that little thing called a needle…unnecessary pain is not my thing.
Besides your loved ones, who would you want to be stuck with on a deserted island?
WILL: Anyone who knows me know this automatic answer: Jane Seymour. Again, I don’t believe a lot of explanation is needed. I first saw her in LIVE AND LET DIE when I was 17-years-old and that — as they say — was the end of that! I would also dearly love to have a formal dinner with our Founding Fathers and ask if things worked out the way they planned.
Selena: Would be interesting to hear what the Founding Fathers have to say about pop culture.
On the other hand, who would you rather NOT be stuck with on that island?
WILL: I’m going to behave myself on this one, but there indeed a list. A short one, to be sure, but a List nonetheless.
Selena: Oh, no need to behave yourself on this blog, but probably a good idea not to list those. I think we all have a list of those people…boy who used to punch me in the arm in Grade 7 is on my list, but I won’t mention his name.
What was the moment that inspired you to add suspense/thriller author to your resume?
WILL: I have wanted to be a writer since I was seven-years-old and taught myself to type on my mother’s college typewriter; one of those huge “Royal” manual monsters. As far as genre goes, Suspense/Thriller is what I have always loved to read and most advice for writers begins with “Write what you love,”, so…..
Selena: What is the most interesting tidbit you can share, regarding research for your books?
Other works are adaptations of screenplays that did not work out, or just some nice short stories that really cannot find a home anymore. As an example, the short “One Minute After Midnight” was written for a Cold War anthology, but didn’t make the final cut.
Not so long ago, it would have been filed away and forgotten. That is the beauty of today’s publishing industry: what once would have been relegated to the filing cabinet can now be made available for everyone to read and enjoy!
Thank you, Will, I personally look forward to reading more of your work.
“Will Graham” is the pseudonym of a professional investigator specializing in computer forensics and electronic evidence exclusively.
