Today we have Author Andrew Katz!
I am a twenty year old semi-college student out of the Philadelphia area. Writing only recently became my passion as I started out in September of 2011, but I’ve always been an avid reader. “Descendants” will be my first novel, but I also have a short story out in the anthology “Dark Light” edited by S.J Davis and published by the wonderful Crushing Hearts & Black Butterfly Publishing.
I’ve never really had one of those definite career dreams. Just like every other child I had aspirations to do this and that, but they were only phases and nothing ever really stuck. Unfortunately, that sort of carried on through life and I couldn’t find a real direction. Luckily writing has changed all that. It is my passion, outlet, and favorite hobby, and I couldn’t even dream of doing anything else.
It’s really more or less just like every other day. I’m a very streaky writer. I can’t just randomly sit down and start writing, so I keep a small moleskin notepad in my back pocket at all times to jot down ideas. Once those are good and formulated I’ll sit down with my laptop to write and hopefully produce some good work.
Usually I’m just pretty relaxed and immature, and writing doesn’t change that very much.
Check out my first full length novel, “Descendants”, as well as the awesome #1 best selling anthology “Dark Light” featuring a short story about Godric Patronar (the same protagonist as “Descendants)
I was kneeling before the throne, being reprimanded… again. The King was going on and on about the importance of responsibility in our darkening world and how it was the job of those with power to maintain the peace.
“Not to potentially wipe out an entire race.”
“Look you weren’t there; you have less than no idea just how badly they deserved it.”
I had just come back from possibly – key word, possibly – killing the last of the gnomes of North America.
“You acted irresponsibly and foolishly. I can honestly say I expected better from you,” said the King in that stupid I know better than you tone of his.
“All right, Dad.” I put as much ice into my voice as I could manage while speaking to my father (don’t worry we’ll get to that). “When you go to investigate a kidnapping and find twelve gnomes sacrificing an eleven-year-old girl trying to grant their females renewed fertility; with three similar corpses in the room, you can come lecture me.”
“Did you at least save the girl?” he asked me sardonically.
