Due to a technical issue I’m unable to feature the photo Dan sent with this magnificent interview.
Hello everyone and welcome back to my Guest Author of the Week column.
Last week we opened the series up with author blogger Sally Cronin. Sally chose to take my questionnaire and use the questions within as prompts and write a delightful and well received essay about herself.
This week, it gives me great pleasure to introduce to you bestselling author blogger Dan Alatorre.
Dan has chosen to do a magnificent interview so, without further ado, we begin…

First, in your own words tell us a little about you.
Hmm. I’m not sure the witness relocation program will like that, but for you, okay.
I write books you can’t put down.
I’m a mystery writer. I have 27 published titles in numerous genres, and I’ve been published in over a dozen…

      • I’ve sat down and reread your interview again. I did so because I wanted to enjoy it totally from the reader’s point of view.

        So many times people dampen down their answers, afraid to allow themselves to shine even though interviews and the like are designed to make us shine. I was so glad you are not afraid to shine.

        When I went years ago to get my first guide dog, I had real trouble believing in myself. My trainer taught me that if I didn’t believe in myself and present myself as such no one else would believe in me.

        Same goes for our writing. If it isn’t good to us, why on earth would anyone else want to read it?

        Another thing I enjoyed was the advice you gave about writing. With those things you wrote in mind, I went back over the first 10 chapters of a manuscript I’m working on, and it made a huge difference in the way I approached them. I got rid of some things, added others, and had a grand time doing so.

        I used to be intimidated by you, now, I’m just totally inspired.

          • Well, that was the old me.

            I shoved her under the rug rolled her up and tossed her out long ago.

            My first book wasn’t all that great, I was green and new and knew little.

            The second book was as are all of them better. Then I grew more and I’m doing a second edition of the first and writing two more to go with it to make a trilogy which will blow anything I’ve written before out of the water.

            I’ve also found I truly love reading other’s work and writing book reviews.

            Finding one’s toe hold is very important, and I’m learning to climb.

            Your work is incredible, and I’m a picky reader. I find myself reading authors I’ve loved for years ripping their work up and wishing I could talk to them and ask them what on earth they’re thinking. LOL.
