Featured Interview With Mikel J. Wisler
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was born in Brazil, South America to America parents living abroad. I now live on the south shore of Boston, Massachusetts with my wife, daughter, and tiny dog.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I was quite young when I fell in love with stories, both movies and books. I recall seeing and then reading Jurassic Park and being so sucked into the possibilities of what science fiction had to offer. So, I started writing my own stories.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Well, definitely Michael Crichton. But also Ben Bova, Stephen King, Andy Weir, J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, Ray Bradbury, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and a whole host of great short story writers like Frank Wu and Robert Reed.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
Unidentified is a twisted tale of UFOs and alien abductions that harkens to my love of The X-Files and the work of thoughtful horror filmmakers like Scott Derrickson. So my novel blends the genuine quest for a scientific understanding of the paranormal and a fast-paced plot you might get in a Crichton book with the more horrific aspects of abduction stories in a Stephen King-like approach where the audience really gets to walk with the characters through some pretty terrifying events.
Here’s the quick synopsis:
Troubled FBI Agent Nicole Mitchell is brought back from administrative leave and offered a second chance to solve her most haunting case. A disturbing series of kidnappings has a small town terrified. Mitchell is certain that a serial kidnapper is exploiting local fears of UFOs and stories of alien abductions to hide in plain sight. Desperate to uncover the truth, Mitchell enlists the help of a skeptic who questions even her theory.
In three days, a local girl will vanish for good. As Mitchell rushes to solve the case in time, she uncovers a far more sinister reality than she ever imagined. Mitchell must shake off her own dark past if she’s going to save the girl. But could this case be her undoing?
