Have you always enjoyed writing? Actually, yes. When I was a kid, I would create (uh-oh, here comes the geek in me) Star Trek cartoon stories, which entailed drawing space ships and people as well as writing the dialogue in those little speech balloons. My mom has a whole box of those silly things.
What motivates you to write? So many things, really. But the biggest inspiration is the prospect of bringing joy and entertainment to other people’s lives. The author/reader connection is incredibly intimate, and it’s thrilling to share that with so many people. Then there’s the creative process of forming stories, inventing characters and bringing it all to life through fun writing, all of which gets me so excited that I can hardly wait to get to my study every morning. I know, in my heart, that it’s truly what I’m meant to do.
What writing are you most proud of? Definitely my Jack Lazar Series, which will initially consist of 10 books (all of which I’ve already mapped out), and after that we’ll see what the fans want. People can check out the first six covers and storylines at my website: www.jacklazar.com.
Tell us about your family. I am fortunate enough to have married my beautiful soul mate, and I have a truly fantastic son as well. My mother is one of the sweetest, most loving people you will ever meet, and I am very close to her. My father was born and raised in Germany, but he met my mother in Amarillo, Texas when he was a high school exchange student. His father (my grandfather) was a senator in Germany before the Nazis took over and refused to do what they asked, so he picked up the family and moved to a town called Kiel on the Baltic Sea and worked with the underground against Hitler. There are streets and monuments all over Germany to honor everything he did.
How do you work through self-doubts and fear? That’s an easy answer – meditation. Fear and self-doubt are products of the ego, and they arise when we lose connection with our higher self. Meditation helps us regain that connection, and it opens up the paths to creativity, too!
