It is with great pleasure and an honor to interview Author Richard Oliver Snelson. Thank you for today's interview. I wish you much success.

Author of 'The Hawksbill Crag'     5 Star Review

~~~Author Interview~~~

What inspires you to write?
I believe my passion to write comes from the story I want to tell. When I find that bit of lighting in a bottle, the characters drive the mind, and then the fingers.

How important is a book cover?
Critical to me. For the last novel, I designed the cover, before writing the story. I always keep the tentative cover in plain view while writing.

Did you have favorite books as a child?
Jack London's 'Call Of The Wild' was a favorite.

If you were to write in a different genre, what would it be?
I just finished a western short story for Dusty Richard's next anthology. The subject has to have a bite that will drive me each day in my daydreams. Daydreams always help to speed a story along.   

Do you have current work in progress?
I do. The story is a modern adventure set against one of the environmental disasters man is creating.
