Roy with famous actor, Danny Trejo
- How did you decide to pursue a writing career?
“I graduated from the University of Phoenix with an Associate of Arts with a concentration in Business Foundations back in 2011, I think (LOL) and decided that I would start-up a business in the automotive industry. I later decided it would be best if I ventured into various industries, so, I invested financial capital into the stock market, and later pursued a career as an author, which, has been an exciting experience.”
- Was getting published hard?
“Getting published was not going to be easy, but, it was not going to be impossible. I wrote Cultivating the DNA of Crime and presented it to college students of UCLA as a short survey, which I paid each participant $50 at a Westwood, California coffee shop for their feedback. And 8 out of 10 people actually enjoyed reading it. I knew this was going to be a profitable, yet, challenging career. K1LLER, Inc. of Beverly Hills, California published the book on May 5, 2014.”
A cosmopolitan’s life
- Are your characters based on people you know?
“Yes and No. (LOL) I build characters around people I know, and with the help of a little imagination, I create the dialogue.”
- What genre are your books?
“Cultivating the DNA of Crime and Virula: Renaissance Outlaw are fiction novels. However, I intend to write different genres, such as, science fiction, romance, fantasy, mysteries in the future. There is more to life than simply writing about crime, so, I know the books I write in the future will be quite interesting, and entertaining, because I am cosmopolitan.”
- Which of your books is your most favorite?
“Man! That’s a hard ball question to answer. Can you repeat the question? (LOL) It would have to be a coin toss decision, because both books are really intriguing. I have to be brutally honest, these books are packed with excitement, adventure, and most importantly, information.”
- Do you have a specific writing routine?
“I like this question! I sure do. Funny that you ask. (LOL) I write whenever it’s convenient. I have a number of activities I’m involved in day-to-day, but, when I focus on writing, I get [expletive] done. I get to work! I write, and write, and write until I feel I’ve accomplished what I would have in a month’s timeframe, all in one day. Seriously! Truthfully speaking, I really do enjoy writing, but, I also have to remember, it’s not my only source of income.”
- What are your current projects?
“I’m invested heavily in the stock market, and other profitable ventures, but, as far as books, I am working on a manuscript that’s going to be published as a second novel of the Virula: Renaissance Outlaw series.”
- What’s next for you?
“To continue writing and publishing as many books as possible can before I die. The Roy Albert Andrade brand is growing rapidly, and I know sooner or later other people are going to want to work with K1LLER, Inc. Thank you for this interview, it was a pleasurable experience.”
Thank you, Roy! That was a FUN interview!
