Interview for Wayne Tripp Tell Tale Event (6)

Welcome to JBR.  We are happy to have Wayne Tripp visit today.  

First why don't you tell us about yourself?

I'm a retired graphic artist who designed class rings for many of the high schools and colleges
throughout the United States. I've created winning designs for the Military Academy, Naval Academy and Air Force Academy as well as the Coast Guard and Merchant Marine. A world-traveling SCUBA diver, I've created and painted hundreds of award-winning military and fantasy miniatures as well as enjoying a full family life. Since childhood, I've always liked to read and write my own short stories.

Allure of Siren's Song
Newest release?

My newest release is Allure of Siren's Song, available through Amazon, Kobo and all the usual vendors.  It's a multi-era, historical romance centering around the adventures aboard a tramp steamer. Please give it a look.

What can we expect from your stories, action, drama, romance, sex, blood and guts?

My stories will always feature a romantic couple, striving to overcome some form of evil or strife while their love deepens. It's hard to pigeonhole into one genre. My writing generally has main elements of romance and the supernatural, but that's flavored by a keen sense of historical events, hopefully hot sex, and a love of adventure.

Do you have a favorite in your stories?  Who?  Why?

As for favorite characters, I'd have to say whatever hero and heroine I'm writing about. People I'd like to be, or be in love with. I present a lot of dark evil and really vile villains in my books, but in the end, love always wins. Just not to quickly.

How about your least favorite character?  What makes them less appealinf to you?

The villains are my least favorite type people; though of course, they're some of the most fun to write
about. They get away with such nasty stuff. Probably Principal Gerald Sweetling in the upcoming Grim Island series.

Give us an interesting fun fact or a few about your book or series?

A fun fact. Like Clockwork was written while my husky puppy made herself comfortable at my feet.
More than once, her paws managed to find the keyboard.

Have there been any other authors who have inspired your work or helped you out with your stories?

Inspiration would be from a squadron of the best horror and steampunk authors out there today.
If you enjoy Like Clockwork, please spread the word, write a review, or visit my Facebook page. Also, if
you like this book, give Allure of Siren's Song a look and keep an eye out for Grim Island, the first book in
a new series.

Where do you gather most of your inspiration for your work?

To anyone wanting to write, keep at it! Never ever give up. Read everything you can in your genre. Ask yourself what's good, what's bad, and how you would change it. Most of all, have fun.

Can you remember one of the first things you wrote?  What makes it memorable?

I remember writing things as a high school student. I'm sure it was terrible, but it was a beginning. What was it? Undoubtedly a horror story.

Where do you gather most of the inspiration for your works?

I get most of my inspiration from reading, horror movies and those dark, shadowy corners of my mind.

Do you have any other interesting hobbies,  pets or stories you would like to share?

Hobbies with me involve passion. Besides writing, I love my husky, my marine aquarium and almost
anything to do with the ocean.

Favorite places to travel or visit?

Favorite places: underwater in Fiji and Hawaii

Where can we find your work? 

Like Clockwork will be available from Tell-tale Publishing.
