Q: What kind of storytelling makes up the majority of this novel?
A: Credence is a culmination of science-fiction and fantasy elements generally told from a third-person perspective. As such, I try to include immersive but unraveling descriptions of the environment, characters, and sensory perception so as to keep a good pace, stay on-track with the plot, and not lose any significant intrigue in the process.
Q: Any primary thematic elements that you intend to include?
A: Although the narrative is a fairly open-ended philosophical and theological venture on the whole, warfare and action still play a large part in this first installment I’m working on. I’m a big fan of seeing the deeper subjects of life on paper and on-screen, but I still enjoy battle scenes, and typically the more suspenseful and action-packed the better. Psychology is also a pet interest of mine, so getting into the heads of important characters may put a few thematic and contextual twists on the story.
Q: Are there any actual dragons in “The Credence of Dragons and Men”?
A: Yes – actual dragons do appear (not just for cameos) and play key roles all around. Granted, they may not be seen for awhile – I’m still deciding where exactly they’ll go.
Q: Can you offer any clues as to what kind of worlds or universes Credence will explore?
A: Those could be divided into isolated themes for the most part: currently my primary lineup (beyond just the first novel) will consist of rolling tribal plains, futuristic city-scape, post-apocalyptic, western/neo-steampunk, and supernatural/supersensory. There are a few other mixed themes though that are still being worked on right now.
