Featured Interview With Brian J Savage
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Oruiginally from manchester. I then worked in IT in Birmingham for 20 years, before taking early retirement.
I now live in Shropshire, where my Pandemic Virus series is set.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I remenber my mother being pleased when I started reading for pleasure. The first book I recall reading was called ‘Half a World Away’ and was set in Australia. This was re-read many times.
I HATED writing at school, as my handwriting is bad (It still is).
Computers changed all that.
I had to write reports at work, and after early retiremnt I got invlved with writing articles for the travel industry in 2000. Following that, my wife and i were asked to write workshop manuals. We also wrote the centre spread for the National Exhibition Centre Motorhome show magazine.
I only started writing fiction in 2018.My Pandemic Virus books must have been very prescient!
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Favourite genres are Science fiction, including the great authors such as Robert A Heinlein.
I love crime stories of all sorts/
In addition I rerad a lot of action adventure.
My own books may be classified as Post Apocalyptic Science Fiction, but in many ways they are more action and adventure. They concentrate on how adaptable peopla are and how they survive after a disaster.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
The first book in my series FIGHTING FOR SURVIVAL starts just before a pandmic changes the world for ever. It concentrates on the first year for the survivors.
Book two, THE END OF HUMANITY, covers year two and how they mange to gather goods together for their security and survival.
I am writing book THREE at present (Mid 2020) and this will continue the story. There is at least one more book to be written in the series, but this may be extended, if I have enough ideas!
