Author Interview – Arthur J. Gonzalez @arthurjgonzalez

Do you have any tips on how writers can relax? Success does not come overnight. It takes hard work. If you want it, you must first define your own interpretation of success and be willing to work relentlessly towards it.

How often do you write? And when do you write? EVERY day. The time depends, but I prefer to in the morning or afternoon.

Sometimes it’s so hard to keep at it -

What keeps you going? There’s this little voice in my head that nags at me constantly; reminding me that every moment I’m not writing, is time I am wasting off a best sellers list. ;)

What do you hope people will take away from your writing? How will your words make them feel? I hope they feel inspired or motivated. And if not, I’d at least like them to feel entertained and/or intrigued.

What movie do you love to watch? Aladdin and Mrs. Doubtfire – hands down! ::face in a pie:: “Heeeelllloooooo!!”

What are you most passionate about? What gets you fired up? Human rights/Equality. I believe every human being should be afforded the right to live the life they feel they were meant to (so long as they are not inflicting harm on others!) It drives me crazy, the emphasis people place on what other’s do. WHO CARES!

What makes you angry? Ignorant people.

What’s your most embarrassing moment of your life? Ouch. I have so many. I am soooo clumsy and a major goofball.  Just the other day I was in the car singing my lungs off – but I mean, busting out –parked in my car. When I was done, I turned to catch a car full of teens laughing at me.

Photo Traveler

Seventeen-year-old Gavin Hillstone is resigned to being miserable for the rest of his life. Left alone in the world after his parents died in a fire when he was four, he was placed in foster care, which for him meant ending up in an abusive home with an alcoholic adoptive father.

Gavin’s only escape is in taking and creating images. His camera is his refuge from the unending torture and isolation of daily life in his “family.”

Until he learns by accident that he isn’t alone in the world after all. His father’s parents are still alive and living in Washington DC.

When he takes the plunge and travels 3,000 miles to find his grandparents, he learns that they—and he—are part of something much bigger, and more dangerous, than he could ever have imagined. Something that has always put his family at risk and that will now threaten his own life, while forever changing it.

He learns that he is one of the last descendants of a small group of Photo Travelers—people who can travel through time and space through images. But his initial excitement turns to fear, when he soon discovers that he and his grandparents are being pursued by the fierce remnants of a radical European Photo Traveler cult, the Peace Hunters. What Gavin has, they want!

His adventure will take him to past eras, like The Great Depression and the Salem Witch Trials. Gavin will have to discover who he really is and must make choices that spell the difference between life and death for himself, for the relatives he now knows and loves, and for the girl he will come to love.

For Gavin, life will never be the same.
