Marlon S. Hayes – A Journey of Words Blog Tour #11

Fellow Scribe Marlon Hayes is a prolific writer and excellent storyteller. Like me, is a very diverse writer in many genres. Marlon is always looking to help other writers, and it is my honor to be working with him on a number of projects, including AJOW. In addition to the link he provides below, you can find a little more about him on his Scribes’ Page.

Author Name:
Marlon S. Hayes

Title of my AJOW story:
Daddy’s Boy

A man takes a long dreamt of a road trip with his father, in an attempt to heal long-held grudges and wounds.

What inspired me to write this story?
After I wrote it, I realized the story sprang from all of the questions I would have liked to ask my own father, a deceased heroin addict, who was also a brilliant, talented artist.
How long have I been writing? I’ve been writing since I was 11, but I didn’t take it seriously until 2013 when I published my first book.

What genre do I usually write in and why?
I don’t have a genre, other than plain fiction. I constantly challenge myself to write about different subjects, in order to become a better writer.

What else am I working on/writing at the moment?
Finding a publisher for a novel, publishing a coffee table book of poems, editing a short story anthology, and my main WIP is tentatively titled “My Calling,” the tale of life through a serial killer’s eyes.

My advice to new writers?
Just write. Follow the processes of reading, writing, rewriting and learning. Repetition makes a writer better.

How can people discover more about me and my work?
Follow me daily @ Marlon’s Writings on Facebook, where I post poetry, short stories, and updates.
