Interview with D.A. Vader, Author of Black in Blue

30 Jun 2021

What can you tell us about your new release, Black in Blue?

Black in Blue is about standing at the crossroads of Law enforcement and being black. The decisions I’ve made, the experiences I’ve been through, and the people I’ve met.

What or who inspired you to become an author?

I’ve wanted to put my story down for others to read for years. Watching both sides of the divide tear each other apart finally got me to put my pen to paper.

What’s on your top 5 list for the best books you’ve ever read?

I couldn’t decide on individual books so I came up with the series I think are my top 5.

  • The Land by Aleron Kong
  • Jack West books by Mathew Reilly
  • Black Dagger Brotherhood by JR Ward
  • The Peacekeepers by Ricky Sides
  • Nemesis by Jeremy Robinson

Say you’re the host of a literary talk show. Who would be your first guest? What would you want to ask?

Jeremy Robinson. How does it feel to create the MCU of the literary world?

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

The freedom of it. It’s just you and your ideas and story.

What is a typical day like for you?

If I’m not with my children, I’m either creating business plans, looking up different comics and movies, or playing fantasy football.

What scene from Black in Blue was your favorite to write?

The chapter where I wrestled a guy covered in sh*t. At the time I wished I called out of work but now I can laugh about it.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

If it’s probable it’s possible. People will tell you that something is impossible just because they don’t know anyone that’s ever done it. The world is littered with stories of people that came from nothing to become great. If they can do it so can I.
