The author of Hybrid: The Great Awakening, Mark N. Redmayne, is here with us today. Before we get started, here’s the blurb for his book:
A complex influenza virus has brought the world to its knees and the USA is under martial law. Growing up with a mix of Human and Alien DNA is not easy but it might just give Aura White the key to saving humanity from certain extinction. Will she save the worldfrom catastrophe? Only time will tell…
I must say, you’re illustrated cover is a bit refreshing compared to the covers that we are all partial to nowadays. So, tell us about yourself and what inspired you to start writing.
I love conspiracy theories and so I thought I could about them. My character is a female of African heritage and I don’t think that’s been done before. A teacher at primary school told me I might be a writer one day. I was 8 years old.
What is your writing process? Do you have a time, day or place you like to write?
I wait and it comes. It’s pretty random but I have to make sure I have somewhere to write my ideas down at any time.
What do you like to do when you’re not writing? Full-time job, pets, hobbies?
Apart from teaching English I like to run, go to rock concerts and spend time with my family.
Rock concerts… sounds like you might be a cool English teacher. 😉 What’s your all time favorite animal? It can be mythical.
I love dogs but I’ve always wanted to swim with turtles!
Do you have a favorite myth? If so, tell us about it!
I used to love the Narnia books when I was younger and spent years looking in wardrobes.
I think that’s an affliction that hit many readers of Narnia. 😉 Now, before you go, tell us about your next book project.
I hope to write a triology of Hybrid books so I’m thinking about how the second might go now.
Thank you for coming fellow Narnia fan!
