Tell us a bit about yourself.
I was born in a comparatively small setting along with an older sister and a younger brother.‭ My‬ father passed at an early age while my mother passed later in life.


I was adopted twice,‭ ‬once by a near relative,‭ ‬who passed a year later,‭ a‬nd the second time by Lady Yates of Monte Vista.


Growing up we never had as much as the other kids about the shire,‭ ‬but we did have adventure to keep us busy.‭ ‬And busy we were‭!


I wrote this book in the midst of my many adventures, one of which caused me a severe chest wound when during the rescue of two children,‭ ‬an undetermined beast subdued me and attempted to cut out my heart with its razor sharp teeth.‭


During my recovery I was to be Knighted on September‭ ‬30th,‭ ‬in the year of our Lord‭ ‬2005,‭ ‬therewith the title,‭ ‬Sir Winston Rutherford Yates‭ ‬.

Describe‭ ‬The Haunting of Debishire Manor‭‬ in a few sentences.
It is a story about a dysfunctional family living in a manor high atop a hill, that get caught up in the murder of their grandfather. His death brought about a series of haunts and uncovers a family secret that could destroy them all.

Who do you think would most appreciate‭ this book?
I think it would be appreciated by young to middle aged readers.

What inspired you to write a story about a manor with a mysterious,‭ ‬murderous history‭?
‭ I grew up in a haunted house and wanted to tell a little about what I went through in a way that would interest the reader.

Who was your favorite character to write in‭ ‬The Haunting of Derbishire Manor‭?
Sloan was the character that most suited myself and I put myself into him more, but Nicole was hands down my most favorite character to bring to life.

Can you tell us a bit about the creative process for‭ ‬The Haunting of Debishare Manor,‭‬ from the initial idea to the finished book‭?
Each book I feel it is important to have an idea where I want to go with my story, but as I create my characters, they take on a life of their own and sometimes that life guides where the story goes. The love relationship of Sloan and Nicole, was one of those such cases. I had not intended for this to have happened, and suddenly, their it was, and they fell in love.

In addition to writing fiction,‭ ‬you also write non-fiction.‭ ‬Can you tell us a bit about your non-fiction works‭?
‭ One of my non-fiction books is titled, How to get out of debt, the Christian experience, this book is my personal experience with how God brought me out from under a hundred and fifty-thousand dollars of debt in a very short time, and brought me to being totally debt free for the first time in my life.

Do you have a different process for writing‭ ‬non-fiction compared to writing fiction‭?
‭Non-fiction is so much easier to write, especially if it is about something you have lived through, and it takes less creative energy. I don’t really get into non-fiction as deep as fiction, when I write, it’s a totally different animal.

How long have you been writing‭?
‭I have been writing for about twenty-five years or so.

How do you think you've evolved as a writer since when you first started‭?
‭I think I’ve learned to give my characters stronger personalities, and to add more detail to my characters world.
 

Are there any authors who have influenced your writing style‭?
‭Thus far, Steven King has had the most influence upon my writing,

What are your goals as a writer for the next ten years‭?
‭ I have several more projects for the future and I hope to see one of my books translated into a major motion picture someday.

Writing can be a difficult,‭ ‬time-consuming pursuit.‭ ‬What motivates you write so prolifically‭?
‭I’m not sure, but sometimes I think you just have to express yourself, and this is my way of doing that. Besides, it’s a real joy.

What do you have in mind for your next project‭?
‭I am trying to get my children’s books into print, and maybe finish up the series.

Is there anything else you'd like potential readers to know about your book‭?
‭Yes, I think you can write a perfectly good story without the use of profanity, so I do, and I hope you will enjoy my books. Thank you.
