Interview of Andrew Grey

Please Welcome Andrew Grey to Julies Book Review. Andrew is giving away a copy of A Volatile Range this wk. Make sure you check out the rafflecopter to the right of this page! Welcome Andrew!

 It is awesome that you have come to visit JBR. My readers at looking forward to hearing all about you! Let's start with, tell us a little about yourself? Besides being a wonderful author! 
 I live in Carlisle PA with my amazing partner who supports me beyond belief. I couldn’t write without him. I also work full time in Information Technology, so yes, I’m a very busy guy.

 What kinds of books to do write? I write gay romance. I will lucky enough to have been blessed with my own great romance, so I love to write about the ones I create for my characters. What can we expect from your books? Sex, violence, romance, gore, action, adventure? You can expect romance, love, sometimes a touch of danger, throw in some angst, the occasional disappointment or setback, but always a Happy Ever After. There aren’t enough of those in real life, so we should definitely write stories about them.

 Your newest release? I have two recent releases, A Volatile Range which is the sixth in my Western series. It takes place around a ranch in Wyoming. This story features Gordon, a former marine with PTSD whose trying to find his way and ends up getting mixed up with the wrong people for the wrong reasons.
On March 4th, the Fight within released. It’s the second in The Good Fight series. These stories take place in South Dakota and center around the Sioux reservation. In this story we meet Paytah, a warrior for his tribe who was abused as a child and not believed when he said something. All he had left is his pride and dignity which he wraps around himself like a cloak. But the walls begin to crumble when he witnesses a small act of kindness directed toward one of the tribes most vulnerable members, by of all people, a white man. 

 Who is your favorite character from one of your stories? why? That is so hard for me to say. But if forced to answer I would have to say Geoff form the Love Means… stories. I know him better than the others. I’ve written Geoff as a child, teenager, young adult, and now a more mature adult with a partner and child of his own.

 Would you, if possible, ever want to meet that character? Yes. I like to think that Geoff is a part of me. That Geoff represents the best part of me, but that may be a stretch. I think more than anything I would love to meet Geoff and all the people on the farm. It would be a magical place to visit. 

 What book have they read that touched you deeply? and why? (yours or someone elses) 
There have been many books that have touched me. I think the one that I like best is Pillars of the Earth. An amazing story with amazing characters and action. Above all it’s a story of love, a romance.

 Are you currently writing anything? Can you give us any hints? I’m currently finishing up work on A heart Without Borders. It’s the story of a doctor who goes to Haiti to help the people living in the camps after the earthquake and finds so much more than he ever expected. He arrives alone and broken hearted and ends up with a family.

 Any advice you would like to give aspiring authors? Write what you love and what you enjoy reading. You’re going to spend more time with the story than anyone else, so make sure it captures your imagination and excited your heart. 

 How about some fun stuff? Favorite past time activity? I love to garden and collect antiques. I love animals and reading as well as travel

Favorite animal? Do you have one? No. I would love a dog, but Dominic is allergic to most animals.

 Favorite food? A good steak. I’m a real meat and potatoes kind of guy

 Favorite book or one you can recommend (not your own) I have to recommend Moonlight, Tiger, and Smoke by Connie Bailey. This story is not what I usually read, but it blew me away. It’s amazing. 

A favorite author you can recommend and why? I adore the work of Ken Follett. All his work has a lot of action, adventure, with a dose of love thrown in. They’ll keep you on the edge of your seat. 

What kind of music do you listen too? I rarely listen to music except in the car. I love Braodway show tunes. I’m a real gayboy at heart.

 Spring, Fall, Winter, Summer? Why? I love all of the seasons except winter. It’s just too cold

 And finally where can we find your books?(please include any links you want including buy links) All of my books are available from Dreamspinner Press. http://www.dreamspinnerpress.com/store/index.php?cPath=55_106 My Web Site: www.andrewgreybooks.com email: andrewgrey@comcast.net
