I recently did a short Q&A with Edward Lake, author of the Mamluk’s series. Check it out ya’ll!!
EL: As it pertains to your readers, what do you hope to accomplish as an author?
THS: I want to entertain firstly, but I also want to convey important messages that may not be the usual expectation for a reader. In A Cold Black Wave, faith and reality clash. What is the purpose of living when you are the last ones alive? In Dustland, vengeance leaves no room for “good” guys (or ladies). For me, it’s not enough to create an interesting story. There has to be a greater meaning to it all, even if that means not fulfilling the typical expectations in that genre. If you want formulaic, don’t read my stuff!
