Author Interview – Todd M Thiede

What contributes to making a writer successful? I think the one thing that makes a writer successful is writing what you like.  If you truly enjoy what you are writing it will always be a success.  Always write for yourself and the accolades will follow.

Will you write others in this same genre? I will write many more books in this genre.  I truly can’t shut my brain off especially when it comes to coming up with ideas for my stories.

How important do you think villains are in a story? I think villians are very important to most stories.  I know my villian is one of the main characters in “Time Killer”.  The story evolves around him.

Tell us about your family. I am father of 4.  My oldest is my only son he is 21 now.  I have 3 girls 19,13,and 9.  I have been married to my beautiful wife Courtney for 3 years.  Not my first marriage but definitely the best.  She has been there through all of the hard work for the book.  I have great imagination when it comes to the story but the background and detail is all her.  She helped me out so much.

What genre are you most comfortable writing? I am most comfortable writing mystery because I have a great imagination.  My wife hates watching shows like SVU and CSI with me because I am really good at solving who did what and why.

When and why did you begin writing? I started writing at a very young age.  I wrote stories in school and in seventh grade I actually wrote my first book. It wasn’t very long but it was a murder mystery.  The Junior HIgh Murders was the title.  I didn’t get a good grade on it because my teacher thought it was too gory for her.  I have always been interested in mysteries because of my natural investigative mind.
