Chaotic
skies reveal untold prophecies. A storm rises. Can a boy quell the
fury of a god?Join the Zapotec on a journey through time and across
generations.
Referring
to themselves as the cloud people, their fierce warriors conquered
and ruled the Oaxaca for centuries. Witness rites, rituals and
incantations aimed at appeasing the divine in an attempt to gain
favor; favor that would grant them greatness. So, where did it all go
wrong? Why would such powerful gods allow their disciples to be
conquered? These answers and more would be offered many centuries
later by their descendants. Descendants of a civilization whose glory
can only be revived by the awakening of the most powerful deity in
Zapotec lore: Cocijo, the god of lightening and rain.

Would you risk your life for a child in danger? The clock is ticking…

Friday, May 4th, 2018
  1. J. R. Ferguson, Welcome to my post. Where are you from?

 

I was born and raised in Longview, Texas but have lived in Louisiana for 35 years. Louisiana is home now.

Makes sense. If you could travel to any time in history, when would you visit?

 

If given the opportunity to travel any time in history, I would probably decline. I’m not much of a risk-taker. Maybe that’s why I like for my characters to take risks. I live vicariously through them.

 

Most authors do. If you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would it be? What food would you serve?

 

I wouldn’t mind having dinner with Joe Mack Crawford, the main character in my story, The Little Girl in the Bayou. He’s a good old East Texas boy who likes barbecue. Of course, that poses a problem for me since I’m vegetarian.

 

He, he, he. If you could travel anywhere, on earth or off, where would you go?

 

I’d stay on earth, thank you. I’d lease a home on the coast of Maine, pack up hubby, the kids and their spouses and live there for a summer—with option to buy.

 

I’m with you there…Describe your dream writing spot.

 

My dream writing spot is just a dream—a home on the coast of Maine or an apartment in downtown Boston. Realistically, I can write anywhere but the best place I’ve written is the library in Mustang, Oklahoma. That place has excellent vibes!

 

Wow, awesome. How did you find enough commitment to complete your book?

 

I have more unfinished books than finished ones. I wrote The Little Girl in the Bayou about thirty years ago. All these years I’ve tinkered with it, updated it and tried to make it timely. I have a partial novel and another short story featuring Joe Mack Crawford, the main character.

 

Nice. What is the name of your book?

 

My story in Tick Tock: A Stitch in Crime is called The Little Girl in the Bayou. It features Mack Crawford, a Texas construction worker who sticks his neck out to find a missing child.

Interesting…Give us a back blurb of your book.

 

Would you risk your life for a child in danger? The clock is ticking…

 

Chiiiiiiiills…What genre is it?

 

Mystery.

 

My favorite. What kind of research did you do for this book?

 

As the years have passed since I first wrote The Little Girl in the Bayou, I’ve had to continue my research to update the story. I’ve researched Polaroid pictures and videos, adult entertainment stores on I-10 and small Louisiana towns and their problems. Don’t get the impression my story is X-rated. It’s a clean story about a guy who cares.

 

Really? Where can we find your books? 

 

I’ve taken all my books off Amazon for updating but Tick Tock: A Stitch in Crime can be found at the links below. Thanks so much for the interview, Anna.

You are welcome.

The Rain Song. The first book of the five part Zeppelin series

Sunday, July 19th, 2015

Where are you from? I was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, but currently am living in a small town called Coweta which is about 30 miles away from where I started.

If you could travel to any time in history, when would you visit? There are so many places and times that have interested me. However, if I had to pick only one time and place… the time of Atlantis. Since there’s only one true description, but so many stories about it, I’d like to see it for myself.

If you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would be? Micah. But that would mean I’d have dinner with David as well, since you can’t have one without the other.

What food would you serve? Micah seems to love chocolate chip pancakes the best, so I’d make sure he had those. David and I would probably chow down on a couple bacon cheeseburgers with French fries though. (more…)
