– Who exactly is Michael Diamond?
“I’m an author living and working in Northern Illinois. When I’m not pounding out words on the keyboard, I drift between cups of coffee and my dog Zelda.”
– How did you decide to pursue a writing career?
“I’ve been writing since the age of 13. Early on it was works of fantasy and near future dystopian realism. I’m a storyteller by heart, and if I don’t get the words out, they take on a mind of their own.”
– Was getting published hard?
“It’s been said that this is the Golden Age of self-publishing, and no one personifies that more than me. My third novel – Agents of the Beyond – is set to release on July 17th, and each one has been put out without the assistance of a major publisher.”
– Are your characters based on people you know?
“Most of my characters are inventions of my own imagination, rather than draw from any one person I know. This keeps me from having to explain to a friend why I killed their character off as the book progressed. In Agents of the Beyond, one of the characters is based on a close friend, and they are aware of that, which should make it a more interesting read.”
– What genre are your books?
“Historical Fiction, Horror, and Science Fiction.”
