Interview with author Mike Dolan - BK Walker virtual book tour
As I continue to host the BK Walker Books Authors Promoting Authors virtual blog tour, today I welcome author Mike Dolan.
Please tell us about your current release.
A Pecunious Life is a book that helps people have a wealthy life. My main goal in writing this book is to just help as many people as I can to have a better life, a more fullfilling life, and to follow their dreams. I share what I have learned through my experiences and travels and then help the reader make a plan for a better life.
What inspired you to write this book?
My inspiration comes from my the experiences of my past, my travels, my determination to live every day of my life to its fullest and to inspire as many people as I can do the same.
What exciting story are you working on next?
I’m in the final steps of finishing another book as I write this. I would like to continue to write in a way that will help people find their dreams, find their true calling in life and become a positive energy for those around them. The book is call A Thousand Thoughts To Ponder.
When did you first consider yourself a writer?
I've been writing for ten years mostly in journals I have kept. This is my first published work though and I am excited about reaching this milestone I set for myself.
Do you write full-time? If so, what's your work day like? If not, what do you do other than write and how do you find time to write?
I do not write full time. I am a telecommunications specialist working on military installations in Europe and Asia. I travel a great deal and spend my traveling time writing.
What would you say is your interesting writing quirk?
For me, writing early in the morning in a sun drenched window is the best place to be. The house is quiet and most of the time my mind is still empty of "other" distracting thoughts, which allows me to let the writing flow. I get my pot of coffee going, gather my pad of paper and half dozen different colored pens and I just start with what comes to mind and go from there.
Anything additional you'd like to share with the readers?
It’s always been a goal of mine to write a book, but couldn’t find a direction until I just started writing and going with the flow.
Thank you for your time, Mike. Best wishes for great writing success.
