Come Ask J.D. Hallowell Some Questions!

Introducing J.D. Hallowell!

What Amazon Author Central says about J.D.:

I’m a 50-ish father and husband who is fortunate enough to have lived an interesting and active life. I’ve had one two-book fantasy series, War of the Blades, published, and I have several other fantasy and SF projects in the works. I like to keep many irons in the fire at once, so my work experiences include such diverse occupations as automotive mechanic, cowboy, photographer, psychiatric tech, paralegal assistant, bouncer, and medical billing clerk. I studied martial arts for over 30 years. I’ve been a soldier and an emergency medical technician, and I served as the chief of a volunteer ambulance squad. I was a diamond courier for a while, and later owned a working kennel where I trained dogs for law enforcement as well as personal protection, and most recently, I’ve trained one service dog, for myself. I don’t get around much now (I’ve been shot, stabbed, blown up, bludgeoned, poisoned, and even had harsh language directed toward me, if you can believe it, and it takes its toll), but I write whenever I can. I have pretty wide-ranging interests and hobbies, including, but not limited to, history, archery, paleontology, cooking, RPGs (the games, not the weapons) and making jewelry. I live on the Space Coast of Florida with my wife, my son, and my Great Dane service dog, until I can convince the rest of my family and friends to move to Arizona.

    How have your many experiences aided you in writing your genres? I think a fictional account of your life would be exceptional to read!

  4. JD, with your varied life experiences I’d have guessed that you write suspense/espionage/action. It looks like some of that comes out in your fantasy novels, which are now on my to-read list. What is it about fantasy and science fiction that inspires you to write in those genres? And congratulations on the great reviews!

    Also, as someone relatively new to dragon stories, I’m curious about how much of the dragons’ culture and characteristics you’ve developed for your story world and how much is standard among the dragon genre. Are there unwritten rules an author shouldn’t break, or is it pretty free territory?

    And what’s your favourite thing about your dragons? (Janet Sketchley,

    Hi! Like you, I have a huge variety of jobs, interests, and hobbies. I feel as though this wide range gives me the knowledge and experience I need to bring “realness” to my stories. Do you feel that having so many different interest helps you be a better writer?

  7. I agree with Jo, what a bio. Here’s my question: How do you approach the beginning of a new work? Do you start with a character sketch, World building, a scene? How does a new piece getting off the ground for you? (I might be cheating here with so many questions, but, inquiring minds want to know!) (David Fernandez:
