Patricia Zick interviews Louis KirbyAuthor Wednesday – Louis Kirby

Author Patricia Zick interviewed me in December but just posted it yesterday on her popular blog site called Writing Whims. In it she asks me such questions about Shadow of Eden such as did my subject choose me?, What author influenced me the most? (you may be surprised), and who is my favorite character? 

We spend some time talking about the antagonists in the book, a particular topic about which I am passionate.  It takes a really good villain to make a great hero. Think Harry Potter’s Voldemort, Sherlock’s Moriority, and Skywalker’s Darth Vader.

We talked about characterization and what it takes to make a book come alive.

Through this whole time, I got to know and appreciate Patricia’s work and her care in putting out a substantial product day after day. I know that carries itself over into her novels as well. She has well regarded nonfiction and fiction books. You can read about them on her website.

I hope you enjoy the interview and as always, feel free to contact me at

Seeley James Trench Coats

My  recent interview by acclaimed writer Seeley James, author of the Pia Sabel series. In it, Seeley opens with this question, “Your thriller Shadow of Eden has one of the most exciting beginnings of the year. How did that come about?” Cool. How can you beat that?

He goes on to ask about writing realistic dialogue, my favorite authors (some you won’t expect), how I keep it real, and the latest book to blow me away (this one is really from left field).

Wherein I blurt out some personal secrets, talk about my villains and some other inside scoop about Shadow of Eden.


Chat with AnnaMaria with Louis Kirby

AnnaMaria writes books and also interviews authors that interest her. She and I sat down over coffee and scones (blueberry) and had a nice chat about my writing, my book, Shadow of Eden and quite a few other things. She is a very intuitive interviewer, which says a lot about her approach to her own writing. She asked about my interest in writing, some of the nuts and bolts about my plot, and slipped in a question or two about my family. Read it by clicking here.
