Michael Phillip Cash Author Interview

Please tell us about The After House:

My version of a haunted house tale told from the ghost's point of view.

Where did the idea for the book come from?

I was watching Maleficent with my wife and I loved that the story was told from the “villain’s” point of view. I had an idea about a whale-hunting ghost named Eli for a while. After the movie was over, I started writing that night.

Many of your books have a paranormal vibe. Have you always been interested in the paranormal?

I love paranormal. You can write a good ghost story in a million different ways.  I’ve had ghosts in my life since as far back as I can remember.

You’ve written several books over the years. How do you find the time to write?

During the day, all I do is research and development about my subject. Once my kids are tucked in and my wife goes to sleep I write every night until my eyes go – generally from 8pm to midnight.

What kinds of things do you like to do when you’re not writing?

Long walks on the beach.  KIDDING! I love being with my wife and kids. I love to cook. Nothing wrong with a good poker game every once in a while. I also started lifting heavy weights.

What kinds of books are on your bookshelf? What’s on your TBR list?

Every screenplay imaginable. Anything by Joseph Campbell. The Save the Cat Series. Every book on The Law of Attraction and The Universe. All Michael Crichton. My TBR List: The Flat Earth Conspiracy, Tools of the Titans, Eat Bacon & Don’t Jog, the Revenant screenplay.

What would readers be surprised to know about you?

I haven’t eaten bread, rice, pasta or potatoes in 6 years. I haven’t eaten fruit or vegetables in 3 years. I only eat meat, dairy and butter – and I’ve never been healthier.

How can readers connect with you?

@michaelpcash. I’m a Twitter fiend. Via my website. Also on Facebook.

Can readers expect any new books from you soon?

Oh yeah. I have an amazing agent who is planning on some very big things for my upcoming books.

As a successful author and scriptwriter, what advice can you give aspiring authors?

Write every day. Have a journal on hand wherever you go, so if you hear someone say something intriguing you can use it in your next work.

Free Christian Romance Novel - Dream with Me, Cowboy by Debra Clopton

Here's another FREE Amazon book. This one is a fun Christian romance by Debra Clopton. Definitely worth the download!

DIY Mom Review:

Lacy Brown drives from Dallas and arrives in Mule Hollow, Texas after reading a “wives wanted” newspaper ad. Lacy thinks she’s going to be the town’s new matchmaker, but God has other plans for her.

This was a sweet and fun Christian romance novel. It’s fewer than three hundred pages, and the author’s engaging, fast-paced writing keeps the story moving nicely. I breezed through it in an afternoon.

The characters are genuine and likable. I enjoyed the storyline even if it was a tiny bit predictable in spots. There were plenty of additional subplots and supporting characters within the story to keep readers interested.

If you like fun, clean romance novels, then you’ll love this one.
