Author Interview – James Copeland

Tell us about your new book? What’s it about and why did you write it? Detective Frank Hawthorn works his magic in this crime mystery novel of love, courage and murder. When Hawthorn receives a call from W.J. Fisher, he is more than ready to solve the case of the missing Milford Fisher. He finds his first clue which leads him in all directions, starting at Fisher’s boat near the Memphis, Tennessee branch of the Fisher Granary Corp. To make the story more interesting, Hawthorn is told that young Fisher discovered someone was stealing millions from the company. Hawthorn is ”Blindsided” by different twist and turns, including his affection for Fisher’s sister. Join Hawthorn in this riveting story with a plot you don’t want to miss.

If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone dead or alive, who would you ask? Mark Twain!

When you are not writing, how do you like to relax? A lot of my relaxing is done while working. We have a large property by the lake and it requires a great deal of real work. When I’m not writing, that’s what I do.

Do you have any tips on how writers can relax? It really doesn’t matter what it is, just something different.

How often do you write? And when do you write? Six days a week. I have my coffee, breakfast, my vitamins, and then sit down to work until lunch. I take a short nap, then return to work until four or five and then watch the national news before dinner.

Sometimes it’s so hard to keep at it – What keeps you going? My desire to see the work completed correctly.

Have you met any people in the industry who have really helped you? Yes! David Morrell started the process with a two hour lecture on writing which inspired me to write a novel titled ‘Death Underground.’ He recommended his book titled, ‘The successful Novelist: A lifetime of lessons about Writing and Publishing.’ Dwight V. Swain his book titled

‘Techniques of the $elling Writer.’ Albert Zuckerman, his book titled “Writing the Block Buster Novel, with excerpts from Ken Follett’s books.’
