Five Question Friday: Chris Blewitt

Five questions with Chris Blewitt...

What do you think makes a good story?

Keeping the reader guessing. What I like to ask myself when telling a story is "What if? What if X happened and as a result, Y happened." You have got to keep the reader turning the page. They need to always be searching for the resolution to the conflict in the story.

What is the hardest part of being a writer?

Finding the time to write! I have a full-time job and three kids. It took me 2.5 yrs to finished Deep Rough, then another 4 years to publish it. Write now and don't look back. I just finished my next novel and it still took 2 years to write. And that's only the first draft!

What is the last book you read?

The Sculptor by Gregory Funaro. Before that was The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo by Steig Larson

If you could live in anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Kauai or Maui in Hawaii. Just a little too far from family/friends or else I'd be there.

What is your perfect Sunday?

The Philadelphia Eagles winning the Superbowl or me winning The Masters.

Read Chris' book, Deep Rough.
