Interview with John Triptych, Author of Minotaurs

17 Oct 2023

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Minotaurs?

I thought about writing a rip-roaring adventure tale in the tradition of Indiana Jones, James Bond, and Dirk Pitt.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Minotaurs, what would they be?

The Bladerunner movie theme by Vangelis!

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I like reading all kinds, so I’m open to anything.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

The First Man in Rome, by Colleen McCullough.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

I liked them all, but the opening I felt was very nice since I spent the most time on it!

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

I write naked!

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

If it feels good, do it!

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

That they learned something new about the Minoans (who happen to be a very fascinating civilization) that they didn’t know before.
