Title of your AJOW story: Get Your Kicks on Route 66
Synopsis of your AJOW story: A man, recently diagnosed with lung cancer, decides to travel Route 66 as his last hurrah.
What inspired you to write this story? My dad did Route 66 a few years ago and decided to do it again this year. It was around the time he decided to go again that I had the idea for the story.
How long have you been writing? Since around 2013, had an idea while in the shower, which I am working on as my first novel.
What genre do you usually write in and why? The novel I am working on is a Crime Thriller, which I hope will be the beginning of a series.
What else are you working on writing at the moment? My novel needs some attention after a hiatus to write Get Your Kicks … and I am developing ideas for A Haunting of Words.
What advice do you have to give to new writers? Write as often as you can and never give up. Join a writing group of fellow writers to learn from such as Fiction Writing on Facebook.
