This week, I have the pleasure of having Glenn Soucy as my guest. Glenn is the author of the Blood Tithe series, When I read the synopsis of the first book,it really intrigued me. It tells of Jeremy, a five years old who accidentally falls through an old WWII tunnel half-flooded with water and chemicals. Jeremy is rescued, but because of the chemicals, his DNA is forever altered. Need I say I wanted to know what happened to Jeremy?
Welcome back and Happy November 1, everyone. I don’t know about you guys but I’ve had a hectic week. I’m not a big Halloween fan but I always enjoy the contests (best costumes and best baked goods) we have at work. Needless to say, it’s been busy around here. And I know the same goes for many of you. Writing! Working! Finding time for family and friends! Getting ready for winter, and the snow… oh oh, did I say that? I love snow, though a lot of people hate it. But on days like today, where it’s almost cold enough to snow, that’s when I want to snuggle up near the fireplace with a good book. Speaking of which, I have a great series to tell you about.
I read the opening line of that book, “Oh Lord, what I have become? Fear of God’s wrath caused me to tremble.” Ouch! That intrigued me even more so I kept on reading. And of course, I wanted to know about the author behind this book, so I contacted Glenn. Here’s what he had to say.
Can you tell your readers a little about yourself.
I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for over twenty-six years. I have three kids, two boys and one girl. Plus I’m a proud grandpa. I served in the Air Force during the first Gulf War. I love writing fast action books that are rich with imagination.
How did you get into writing, and why did you pursue it?
I remember in the third grade writing stories and the teacher would read them to the class. I started writing pretty seriously at age 20 and have been pursuing it ever since. It’s just something I love to do and get the biggest joy when I hear from an excited reader. To me it’s a real gift from the Lord to be able to write.
Who are your favourite authors and do model any of them?
I don’t have any fav’s, but lots that I enjoy. That would go for any author that can take me away to a world and have me feel like I live there. I model my writing off anyone that can do that.
What genres do you write? Have you tried other genres?
Blood Tithe is a fantasy, Scifi with a little paranormal twist. The Soul Collector is more horror and paranormal. But I have just finished writing another book and it’s a love story. So maybe I branched out. My wife was shocked to hear that I wrote a book in what I call, “The Ordinary World.” 🙂
Thanks so much, Glenn. Personally, I’m looking forward to reading them all. I do want to know what happens to Jeremy, who, according to the synopsis of the other three books in the series, we read about his “journey”. And it is my hope that, anyone who’s into fantasy, Scifi, and paranormal, will want to read this series.
Blessings, everyone and until next time, stay warm.
