Featured Interview With Christopher Galvez
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
My name is Christopher Galvez. I am a Virgo who travels the country teaching for LSU (Louisiana State University). I’m an avid weight lifter and extreme introvert. I initially majored in marketing, but quickly realized I didn’t have the patience or personality to be a salesman. I later earned a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and later earned a masters degree in education with a specialization in adult education. I’ve been a full-time police officer for the past 17 years and currently am the assistant chief of police for my agency. I was born and raised in Lafayette Louisiana. Southern Louisiana is an amazing place to live; the culture and food is AMAZING! I’m happily married to my high school sweetheart and together we have a teenage son and six animals (2 hairless cats, 2 hairless dogs and one of each with fur).
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I’ve always loved to read. In early 2019 I decided to write my first novel. The Psychic Son is a fiction novel about a teenage boy who has tragic premonitions. His dad is a police officer so most of the book is taken from my life. My wife and son have paranormal gifts that have given me first-hand experience with supernatural encounters. I’ve seen things in my life that most only see in movies, so I take those realities and apply them to my writing.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Stephen King is my favorite author to read because of his exquisite prose. His ability to draw me into his writing is uncanny. My favorite genre to read is True Crime. I find myself relating to the super heroes hunting the villains. I especially love Italian mafia books. My wife inspires my writing. Everything I write, I have her in mind. Her opinion is the most important to me.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book Five Seconds Til Dark is a paranormal crime thriller about a young man who develops the ability to freeze time for five seconds. He is able to freeze the world around him, while he moves about freely. He initially uses his ability to get revenge on school-aged bullies, but after a close brush with death he has a realization that will change his life. The main character, Marcello Scott decides to use his gift to become a vigilante and he pursues the worst of the worst. Scott gets involved with shady characters and everything that he thinks he knows, he begins to question. Ultimately, Scott will have to answer for his actions, but at what cost?
