How did you know you wanted to be an author?: After writing personal journals of my military and law enforcement experiences, I came to the realization that being an author was my true calling—and one I must follow.
What is your advice for aspiring authors?: The best advice is to read all genres, write with passion, develop your own voice, and edit your work without mercy. Remain humble and remember, writing is a quest to create a better novel with each book!
Do you have any writing rituals or practices?: I spend weeks writing notes, daydreaming about the story, then develop the details of my characters before ever typing the first sentence of the first chapter. My one quirk may be that I must have a title of the book in my head before starting. The title may change later, but I must have one to begin with.
What message do you want readers to remember?: Have faith in yourself. Write the book that you would enjoy reading; not a book that copies others on the market. Listen to your heart.
How can fans get in contact with you?: I can be contacted through my website or at GStarkeyBooks@aol.com.
