Interview with Max Henry, author of Echoes in the Storm
12 Sep 2017
What can you tell us about your new release, Echoes in the Storm?
Echoes in the Storm is a military themed romance about two people who, in helping each other, are forced to face their own fears and regrets. It’s an angst-filled yet sweet story about how, no matter what your past, you’re always worthy of love and being loved for who you are—faults and all.
I write about damaged yet resilient characters, yet Duke and Cammie are my absolute favorite to date. They’re both so full of love and compassion, yet past experiences leave them emotionally shut off. I think what made them work was the fact they saw each other as somebody neutral to their pain, somebody without preconceived ideas or judgement—a fresh start, if you will.
What’s the last book you read?
Undeserving by Madeline Sheehan. (I’m actually still reading it, because … deadlines).
Who is your favorite couple from literature?
Ooo, this is a hard one. I don’t think I could name just one.
What is a typical day like for you?
The normal morning rush to get the kids off to school—I’m sure every parent can relate — and then either settle down in my front room/office if I’m doing marketing, design etc, or get comfortable in the armchair with the MacBook if I’m writing. Pick the kids up, gym, dinner, bedtime routines, rinse, and repeat.
BAM. You’re a superhero. What’s your superpower?
To be able to stop time. I’ve always been fascinated with the concept of what you could achieve if you could freeze the clock.
How do you like to spend a rainy day?
Snuggled up under a blanket with either a good book, or watching a movie with the family.
What scene in Echoes in the Storm was your favorite to write?
Probably the scene in Cammie’s back paddock. Duke finally admits what he hides from everyone, and it changes the whole dynamic of who they are together.
Do you have a motto, quote or philosophy you live by?
“It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog.” – Mark Twain
My reminder that no matter what comes my way, I have the power to overcome.
