I am still numb after my mother's passing but I know I am in good hands and so is she. Funny thing is that I picked up the phone today to call her and to ask how she was doing. Of course, before I could finish dialing, I hung up and took a deep breath. I knew how she was doing; she's in Heaven dancing with my dad, brother, and sister. It was a long battle for her dealing with cancer and I rejoice that she is out of pain. Again, thank you everyone for the emails and phone calls. I'm going to get through this. Please keep my family in your prayers as we complete the arrangements for her funeral.
This brings me to the author interview for today. Wow! I shouldn't ever be surprised when the universe lines up for me. My next author is A.G.R. Goff and the book, "Layers." It is a total break for me as I can delve into something to keep my mind occupied. I can't wait for y'all to meet Goff and learn about the book.
ABOUT THE BOOK
Layers: A.G.R.Goff Kindle Edition
Letting Miranda into his house is a big mistake. But aging comedian Dave also has some secrets. Maybe she should never have come looking for answers. As this story about murder, betrayal and dark desires unfolds, things take an unsuspected turn. Things from the past find their way back to the surface and the dead might not be so dead after all.
A.G.R.Goff - Author
Tell us a few things about yourself.
I grew up in East Germany. As a teenager, I witnessed the uprising in Leipzig, which ultimately led to the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. I always wrote stories but it wasn’t until I met my English (future) husband and moved to the UK, that I fell in love with the English language and finished my first book.
When you’re not writing, what kinds of books are you reading?
Horror, mainly Stephen King, when I grew up, but now I read anything I can get my hands on. I read across genres and authors all the time. Right now, I read works from various indie authors and give reviews.
What was the inspiration for your Layers?
Watching Harry Potter and comparing it with the books I’ve read. I was fascinated by Snape and how he was described in the books but played by a much older actor in the movies. That’s how I discovered Alan Rickman and he gave me the inspiration for Layers.
Are you a full-time writer? What does your writing day look like?
I write semi-permanent. The rest of the time, I translate. So, it’s basically typing all day.
Do you always write thrillers?
No, I don’t, even though I love it. But my second book “The sky above” is dystopian story. I just get inspired by whatever happens around me and move between genres.
Do you have any advise for aspiring writers?
Don’t give up and enjoy what your doing. It should be a hobby first. Don’t forget the marketing.
When you’re not writing, what do you enjoy doing?
Spending time with my dog and playing the saxophone.
Tell us about your current writing projects?
I just finished my second novel, “The Sky Above," a dystopian, end-of-the-world type of story and now I’m working on a sequel to Layers.
What would you like readers to get out of Layers?
I would like them to enjoy it. It’s a fictional story, so I don’t intend to provide a message or change anybody’s life. As long as it gives a few hours of joy to the reader, I’m happy.
How can potential readers get in touch with you? Do you have a website?
Yes, they can email me via my website http://www.agr-goff.com
Where can they buy your book?
Amazon, Kobo, Smashwords, Lulu
