Interview with Teric Darken

Interview with edgy fiction author, Teric Darken.

 
WHAT MADE YOU DECIDE TO START WRITING?

It's always been in my blood. I used to write short stories as a kid, and when in high school, I found it to be a great way to relieve myself of all the teen angst. The whole she-bang simply kept snowballing, and... Here I am.

WHAT AUTHORS HAVE INFLUENCED YOUR WRITING STYLE?

Ted Dekker, Frank Peretti, Robert Liparulo, C.S. Lewis, Stephen King, Dean Koontz...



TELL ME ABOUT YOUR MOST RECENT RELEASE.

Disc jockey Carter "The Cart-Man" Jackson has been climbing the stairway to heaven - keeping his life as simple as possible by living from one song to the next. He had the world by the tail, coming from a family of power, prestige and politics... until he let it all go.

Killer Queen is burning up the highway to hell - terrorizing a town in her crimson-red stilettos by holding random men at gunpoint. She had nothing except a dad who abused her... and now she has nothing to lose.

KILL FM 100 is the visual soundtrack of two opposing lives colliding head-on at a destined radio station. As Killer Queen puts the DJ under the gun during his night shift, she begins to question who the real hostage is as she confronts the demons of her past. And as the DJ shines his light into her darkened world, a few shadows of his own begin to loom from his closet.

A full-throttle storyline, injected with one of the most unique twists ever unleashed, KILL FM 100 is the thriller that reads like a soundtrack.

The Night Shift Edition features ten extra chapters not found in the original storyline. My newest offering, U-TURN KiLLuR (Death Row Edition) is lurking right around the corner.

HOW MANY BOOKS HAVE YOU WRITTEN?

Four books total: KILL FM 100 (Night Shift Edition), U-TURN KiLLuR (Death Row Edition), Wickflicker, and my completed and forthcoming middle-grade readers book, The Sisterly Shenanigans of Doopie Piper and Sissy Pants, which will be released under my given name. (Note: The first editions of KILL FM 100 and U-TURN KiLLuR are not included.)


HOW DO YOU LIKE TO SPEND YOUR TIME WHEN YOU'RE NOT WRITING?

Playing music and hanging out with my wife and children.
