Dark Side of Sunset Pointe by Michael Allan Scott : Interview: Orangeberry Tour Stop



Thanks for stopping by today.  It's great to get this chance to ask you a few burning questions.  lol  If you could travel in a Time Machine would you go back to the past or into the future? Future!

If you could invite any 5 people to dinner who would you choose? Depends on whose cooking . . .:-)

If you could have any superpower what would you choose? Fly!

Pet Peeves? Slow people in the fast lane

Skittles or M&Ms? M&Ms

Any other books in the works? The second in the Lance Underphal Mystery series, Flight of the Tarantula Hawk is in the edit process for a 2013 release.  And I’m about a quarter of the way into the third, Grey Daze.

What inspired you to want to become a writer? Loved to read and I mostly knew I was a writer since before I can remember.  Just suppressed the impulse until it forced its way out.

Tell us your most rewarding experience since being published. It’s like watching a garden grow.  And the best is yet to come.

Who are your favorite authors of all time? Too many to list here, but here’s a couple:  In the mystery genre, James Lee Burke; and in speculative fiction, K.W. Jeter.

You have won one million dollars what is the first thing that you would buy? A scuba diving vacation in Bonaire.

Give us a glimpse into a typical day in your day starting when you wake up till you lie down again. Too boring for words.  Even my dog sleeps through it.

Lance Underphal was devastated by his wife’s death, and now, the down-and-out crime-scene photographer can’t let her go. He wakes up plagued by premonitions. The double shooting of an Arizona real estate developer and his mistress/bookkeeper immerse Underphal in a world of incomprehensible phenomena.
Frank Salmon, the hard-boiled homicide detective on the case, does his best to blow off Underphal’s “visions.” But the murders keep piling up and the visions are all-too real.
Salmon reluctantly pursues Underphal’s twists and turns, leading him from a popular strip club to a failing community bank, adding a blackmailing stripper’s murder to the body count.
Underphal struggles mightily with his psychic curse, teetering on the brink of insanity. His only hope for redemption is the voice in his head, the voice of his dead wife. Stumbling through dark vortexes of murderous intrigue, he comes to realize his visions will either kill him or lead to the capture of a killer-maybe more than one.
