In Gavin Moxley's world, there is no thin line between right and wrong. In a personal crusade to help sever a line of disease carried by a clan of vampires; Gavin has no choice to be ruthless. The Vampires are purposely infecting the human population…waiting for humans to actively pass it on to each other. Gavin takes no chances and executes them one by one. Not strong or powerful, finding humans before they turn into full vampires is ideal and Gavin’s best bet.
Yes, this is Gavin’s life…
…And nothing ever changes it until a young half breed vampire with special abilities, Solstice, attaches and makes herself a fixture in his life when she asks for his help and protection and when a reluctant Gavin agrees he joins a dangerous game of cat and mouse. There is no safe place and the pair are constantly watching their backs. Torn between his hate and his love for Solstice Gavin is thrown into a moral dilemma that only he can figure out but two things are clear…
His faith and Humanity are being tested and the past is not always forgotten.
Tell me about yourself. What’s a day in your life like? Not too much to really say about it. I go to work, come home to my family and hopefully find the time to write, watch movies, or play games.
When you were a child, what was your dream occupation? To be an actor, but it turned out I wasn’t that as good looking as I thought. It’s okay though, I’d rather create anyways.
Describe an incident in your life that’s helped mold you into the person you are today.
I think all of it. I have was forced to move out on my own when I was eighteen due to an abusive relationship between my mother and her then alcoholic boyfriend where I intervened and had the marks to prove it. Terrible girlfriends are another reason. The fact I was held up at gunpoint three times in three weeks at a job I had made me a little introverted.
Who are your favorite authors? Chuck Palahniuk, Clive Barker, Stephen King, Ernest Cline, Neil Gaiman.
What are you passionate about? Film, videogames and writing about them. My blog deals with a lot of that at bryanwdull.blogspot.com
What would I find in your couch cushions? Random receipts, a couple a remotes, food from where my daughter was eating on the couch, maybe a cat sometimes.
What’s your biggest fear? Reality
It’s 10:00 on a Friday night. Where are you?
More than likely watching a movie at home or in the theater.
What sets you apart from other writers?
I think that I have a more direct approach. I believe that some authors write in material just to get their word count up and ultimately has no real relevance to the story at hand and that drives me up a wall.
We’re in a bar and I’m buying you a drink. What’ll it be? Long Island Ice Tea or a White Russian
What are you currently reading?
Ready Player One by Ernest Cline
How do you deal with rejection? Depends on what I am getting rejected about. Most of the time I complain for a day and then just take it with a grain of salt
Where did the idea for your novel come from? The idea originally was a screenplay, but it was missing something. That something came to me when my daughter was born and then I was inspired again. It just needed a girl after all.
Do you have advice for aspiring writers? Just keep doing it and find ways to promote yourself on a regular basis. The more you have out there, whether it is self-publish, blog, news articles…just keep doing it and make a name for yourself
What is the toughest criticism you’ve received as an author? My family now seems to think that I am weird and the Gavin character is me. It is fiction and assuming such things is ignorant. By that mindset I should be every character I write.
What does your main character think about you? Would he or she want to hang around you as their author? I think Gavin would, not sure about Solstice. I guess it depends on how we meet
Who would play the starring role(s) if your book became a movie? Joseph Gordon Levitt and Chloe Moretz
If you had to choose one…which song would sum up your story? Sigur Ros- Saeglopur
Would you like to say anything to your readers / fans? Read this soon because the second book comes out in June!
Where link-wise can your readers / fans stalk you?
As a writer, it can be difficult to find enough time in the day to get everything done. Would you like to share your favorite ‘quick and easy’ recipe?
Wake up early as you can and get it done all at once. Don’t be like me where I suffered from insomnia to get things done.
Check out my short story “Daddy” and my compilation short story book “Sewer Drains & Lighthouses” as well!
