Interview with M. Sasinowski, author of Heir of Ra

28 Aug 2018

What can you tell us about your new release, Heir of Ra?

I’ve always been drawn to mythology and ancient civilizations and also loved books that played in multiple timelines, or told a story within a story, like Inkheart or Neverending Story. Being a huge scifi and fantasy geek, I tried to combine all those elements and write a book that I’d enjoy reading. In retrospect, it may have been a bit of a gamble for a debut novel, but it seems to have turned out ok. So far I couldn’t be happier with the reception Heir of Ra has been getting!

What or who inspired you to become an author?

 I grew up reading all kinds of fantasy and science fiction books and devoured works by R.A. Salvatore, Michael Crichton, Carl Sagan, Fred Saberhagen and many others. At one point, writing became a natural extension of reading. I suppose I became an author when I realized that I enjoyed creating worlds and telling stories as much as I did reading them.

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

Neverending Story, Dune, any book in the “The Trilogy” by H. Sienkiewicz or Lord of the Rings books

What’s your favorite thing about writing?

Creating worlds and characters; weaving elements of history, mythology and fiction to create a believable and enjoyable story.

What is a typical day like for you?

I get up pretty early and go for a long walk in the morning to collect my thoughts and plan out the day. When I get back I answer messages from readers over a nice cup of decaf, then it’s on to writing!

What scene in Heir of Ra was your favorite to write?

I don’t have one particular scene that stands out, but the flashback scenes were some of the most challenging and most enjoyable scenes to write.

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

Do. Or do not. There is no try. Who could argue with Master Yoda?
