Interview with John Jennings

 I had the pleasure to correspond with John Jennings 

about his new work, The Monarch, recently. 

John's Website


It was always (my) ambition to write a novel though. And that all became serious when I was still teaching in England.

John, Thank you for speaking with me. Tell us a little about yourself and what led you to be a writer? 


Well, I have been writing pretty much my whole life in one form or another. I went to university at 20 and studied English literature as a major. This was after an interest in English literature at school and college. I then worked for a while on a paper in London before going on to study journalism. I had my first article published when I was in my mid-twenties and have continued to write ever since.

It was always the ambition to write a novel though. And that all became serious when I was still teaching in England. I was encouraging so many of my students, all adults, that they should follow their interests and dreams. I offered to pay the fees for a young lad to submit his application to enter the university system. Like many people in Sunderland I met, he was pretty poor, working part-time as a cleaner, but with big well justified ambitions to become an artist. I thought, here I am encouraging everyone else. Get your finger out! I looked into a PhD, but my MA credits weren’t gonna be recognized as they were from 2000 – this was around 2016. That’s when I started focusing on the idea of the novel, and the idea of self-publishing - as opposed to vanity publishing - was born.  

Reading and writing can be the best escape, potentially helping counter the onset of depression and the sense of isolation, especially in these strange times with lock-downs and everything. 

Where do you get your inspiration, information, and ideas for books?


I have always written about what I know about, whether through direct experience or through knowledge gained through reading. I am a big fan of James Joyce, as well as the Classic English and Irish, Russian and French novelists, especially from the Nineteenth Century.


What are your hobbies and do they ever play into your writing?


Travel is my biggest hobby, that’s the beauty of living here in Ireland. I am away from my home-town of Newcastle upon Tyne, England, and have visited many countries, The US and Canada on four occasions. I intend to write a lot more books encompassing my travels, either in novel form or as contemporary travel literature. I love Michael Palin and Louis Theroux.

I am also hugely into films of all descriptions, mainly American and British, but I do like Australian, European and World Cinema.


What advice would you give someone who wants to be a writer?


Try to get your head in the right place. Ignore the distractions, as best you can.  Definitely do some research on Barnes and Noble and Kindle Direct Publishing, just to give you the reassurance that you will get your work out there. Once you have written a fair few sections of your book, upload it, but don’t publish. Leave it as a draft to be previewed. I did this and it really inspired me in the process of publishing through Amazon. Nothing like seeing the draft on the tablet to provide motivation.


What was the best money you ever spent as a writer?

The fees for my MA in journalism. And the bus fare to London. After that, anything was possible.

What is the best advice you have ever been given as a writer?


Just get on and write. Nothing more to it than that really. Although, I have been keen to develop over the years, and have been involved in writing, website creation and desk-top publishing for years, without those skills and experience I would have never known where to start, I doubt. It has been a gradual evolution, more of a pursuit of an ambition developed years ago from a spark. But ultimately, you need to follow your dream.


My favorite part, undoubtedly, is during the editing process. 
As you’d imagine, finishing the final edit and getting it up there in print.  

What is your favorite part about writing?


My favorite part, undoubtedly, is during the editing process. As you’d imagine, finishing the final edit and getting it up there in print. I look forward to getting the paperback. I love computers and, unlike my wife who can’t abide the e-copy format, I have no problems, and generally read on my phone or on my laptop, even on my kids’ tablets. Nevertheless, there is still something to be said for the feeling of having the tangible paper format in your hand. Nothing beats that really. It is every writer’s dream.


Please tell us about your current release.


My book The Monarch is the exploration of small town mentality amid the stagnation of post industrial North-East England and Ireland. Although Northern England was a hive of industry and innovation, and formed the backdrop for much of the Industrial Revolution for a couple of centuries, it was left devastated in the Eighties. Even afterwards the area still suffers. The book, which reflects my marriage and move to Ireland, another country which certainly had its share of hardship, is a kind of symbolic catharsis, a reflection on the times and hopefully a part of the healing process, for me at least. It is supposed to be reflective of the change from the machismo of these areas towards a softer more feminine outlook complete with psychological symbology. It is essentially quite feministic, really, despite first appearances, and being written by a man.


Can you read / provide us with a small exert? 


Jerry longed to leave the bay. Surrounded by glass. Cocooned within the carpeted windowed outward-looking enclave, staring at the birds and longing for the open sea, or the pub cellar, his inner sanctum, his own sanctuary. Here he sat exposed and open to all. Unable to hide away, manipulated hourly by well-meaning nurses or care staff. Often less than well meaning.

Jerry was almost constantly and patiently persuaded to drink up, sit up or turn round. The daily exercise class, better than sitting doing nothing, he knew, but boycotted. A principled protest waning towards acceptance. The sea beckoned.

He looked out as the rain gushed onto the path ahead. Leading to the cliff edge, out to the North Sea, Jerry looked ahead, the wind-swept greenery of the garden, the gazebo to the left, cloven by the asphalt and bordered by the fenced off cliff edge. Beyond, the sea beckoned.

Fishing, trawling with his cobble. Managing the bar. Laughing, joking and idling away the time with friends, his family and the custom. Arthur. His long-time friend – side kick, some had said. Ahead the sea beckoned.

Thanks for sharing. What exciting story are you working on next?


I have begun, and I mean that, just the first few pages, of a new novel. Again it will be set between two places. Newcastle upon Tyne and London, England. I really don’t know much more, although I expect it will center around the youths of father and son, different places, different times – memories and the present juxtaposed alongside other characters’ stories. I’ll see how it develops, but I intend to again focus on differences in dialect and perceptions.


You mentioned a few earlier, but who are your favorite authors?


As I said earlier, I am a big fan of the Classic novels of the Nineteenth Century, and similar types of work which progressed from them. Hardy and Dickens were staples growing up, and I went on to study and love Joyce, EM Forster, Balzac, Flaubert, Conrad and Tolstoy.  I love dystopian works, like Swift and Aldous Huxley. I read We by Zamyatin, the inspiration for Nineteen Eighty Four, but I never really enjoyed Orwell’s fiction. I love all his non-fiction commentaries though, as well as all of Laurie Lee. - I hope to explore Orwell’s fiction in coming months I have also read all of Irvine Welsh, and was always impressed by his use of dialect. Edinburgh used to be part of the Saxon kingdom of Northumbria, geographically where The Monarch is set, and it is actually Northumbrian English that Scottish people are speaking when not using Gallic. His books inspired me to publish in North-Eastern English dialect, which is spattered throughout The Monarch amongst traditional English. I have always liked George McDonald Fraser, whose work I have read completely. I just recently read a lot of his daughter’s stuff, Caro Fraser, which actually provided some motivation.


Any plans for the near future other than writing?


I am planning on undertaking more reviews alongside progressing with my current novel. I often like to work on poetry, which I find rewarding given the right inspiration, which could be anything, anywhere, whenever.


What is your writer’s kryptonite?

Distractions, which are everywhere.


Yes, they are!  I have a friend who has an app that grows him a tree if he sets his phone down and doesn't pick it up. It is so easy to shift our focus. I have found other writers struggle with distraction as well. Are you involved in any writer groups?


I am not currently working with any groups, but I did help out with teaching a group Sikh women with Creative Writing, and have taught countless people various forms of writing. I am now working mainly online and am currently reviewing two novels with more expected to follow. I am thinking of contacting a local book club, not far from my home in Ireland. They are a  couple of English lawyers I know who frequently host book readings. It could be interesting.


Anything additional you want to share with the readers?


I hope you all enjoy the book, and any further works I publish. Reading and writing can be the best escape, potentially helping counter the onset of depression and the sense of isolation, especially in these strange times with lock-downs and everything. If anyone wishes to contact me via my website, I will always do my best to reply. Nothing beats the contact of other people.

Review: Minus Me by Mameve Medwed


I recently was given a copy of 

Minus Me.

I was given the copy in exchange for an unbiased review

Minus Me can be found anywhere 

Mameve Medwed's other books are sold.

Buy Here on Amazon

Medwed does a marvelous job of interweaving the backstory with her present diagnosis with her future plans. There are not the clunky flashbacks that can plague a novel. Rather there are the moments of memory anyone in Annie’s situation would have. I have lost several loved ones in my life. I recall one filled out a “About Me” book in her last days. It was a joy to see parts of her past I never knew. Medwed gives us those insights to Annie throughout the narrative.


I’ll pick one moment to illustrate the almost melodic movement of the story forward while telling us why these characters are so in love: Annie pulls up to where Sam is and considers lying to him about being at the doctor. She reflects how easy her mom could do such tasks (and her mom is definitely coming into the story soon like a whirlwind!), then she tries and tell Sam. In the process she exposes his “foibles” that she finds so endearing and is reminded of the two of them skipping down the high school steps in their youth.


Of course, the real impetus of the book is Annie looking forward to a time after she is gone. In particular, how will Sam go on “minus me.” She leaves detailed instruction, including never to mess with the delicious PAUL BUNYAN “Samwhich” at the sandwhich shop. The story has strong, likeable characters, even Ursala. It has enough twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages. It has moments where you are cheering for Annie and moments where you want to tell her she isn’t making the right decision. Throughout, it reflects how love truly is. It can be hard, it can have times of tension, but if it is true, then as one of Annie’s post-it notes declare, it is all you need. Well, that and a little Hope.

"Chicken Things"

My family has no name for these. They have affectionately been called "Chicken Things" over the years. They are delicious either hot or cold. In fact, they have two very different tastes. You can also adjust the size which makes them a great option for either a diner entree or snacks to take to a Super Bowl Party.

So versatile!

"Chicken Things"
They were inspired by a recipe using beef from my friends Wes and Tina. In mine, I use a rotisserie chicken and bump up the spice a bit.

I'm a big believer that people who read recipes want.... wait for it... the recipe... So no long post about some beach trip I once took or how my kids named my first grandchild "chicken thing" because they loved these so much. None of that. Simple ingredients, simple instructions, good food.


Crescent rolls (1 or 2 cans depending)

1 Rotisserie Chicken (or cooked chicken breast)

8oz Cream Cheese

1 cup cheddar cheese 

Salt, Pepper, Cajun spice (teaspoon of each or to taste)


For rotisserie chicken, I pull the chicken into 1" or less pieces. Pull by hand. If using boneless chicken breast, I cook (grill is my preference) then cut into 1/2" pieces.

I've also made this with ground sausage instead of chicken. Equally delicious.


-1. Pull the chicken and discard bones and skin. Preheat oven to 375.

-2. In a mixing bowl, add all ingredients except crescent dough. MIX.

 -a. you can soften the cream cheese in the bowl first using a microwave if didn't set it out long enough)

-b. Cajun seasoning can be exchanged for something else. Really anything you might season chicken with. And it is to taste. If this is your first go, I'd suggest a teaspoon. You can always sprinkle some on the finished project but much harder to take it out of the baked product! 

-3. Roll out the crescent dough. Cut it into sections. Size depends on whether you plan to make entrees (two crescent sections) or snacks (one section). Scoop a bit of the mixture in the center of each section. 

Here I am using two crescent sections to make a nice entree. Be sure to pinch the perforated section together to keep it from breaking in cooking

-5. Fold the crescent edges around to make a pouch for the mixture. Don't worry about them looking pretty. And the cooking time doesn't change, so experiment with using more or less dough. I've also spread the mixture out on the dough evenly and rolled it to make a "log" but my family prefers the puff pastry style.

-6. Put them in the top rack of the oven at 375 for 11minutes (follow the directions on the crescent rolls). FLIP THEM at 8 minutes.

And that is it!!

Enjoy them hot or cold.

Interview: Morgan Azar, author of A Lullaby in the Desert

Order her book at: 

Today, we have an opportunity to talk to Mojgan Azar. Mojgan Azar has written the book, A Lullaby in the Desert.  I am super excited about this book, because it speaks to something that is very close to me.

I spent a good bit of time in the 1990's working with and for refugees. I worked primarily in Africa (Rwanda and Kenya in particular). Azar is from Iran and not Africa, but her story gives voice to people who often do not have voices.

Mojgan, can you tell us a little about yourself ? When did you begin writing?

I’ve been writing stories since I was a child. I would write short stories and give them to my classmates to read them and give me their ideas. When I grew up, I was too busy with studying and work to think much about writing. That was until my husband encouraged me to continue, because writing is the only way I can speak to the world and share the story of how Middle Eastern women fight for freedom.

Where do you get your inspiration, information, and ideas for books?

Being an Iranian woman, the pain of years fighting for freedom inspired me. There is so much news every day that inspires me to write more.

What is your favorite part about writing?

The end. I’m kidding! My favorite part is sitting on the chair and starting to write without hesitating or doubting whether what I’m writing might be a good idea. I think you can make progress by just sitting down and doing it. 

Please tell us about your current release.

 A Lullaby in the Desert represents the multitude of voices barely heard. This story is about women’s rights, fighting for freedom from oppression, social conflict, and the dangers pushing so many to flee their homelands to become refugees. The book is fiction but based on fact. Women, children, and men are too often forced to place their lives in stranger’s hands as they are smuggled across the desert into an uncertain future. For many, their fates are far worse.

Can you read / provide us with a small excerpt? 


Susan looked over at Heja, who was staring out the slit in the fabric and watching the hills roll by. “Hey, Heja. Come look here.” She motioned with her hand. “Can you see outside? Can you tell where we are?” Susan noticed Rima straining herself trying to hear what Susan was saying but it was clear she couldn’t make out the words.

“Uh, yeah. It’s the desert,”

“I know.” Susan rolled her eyes. “I mean, do you think we’re in Iraq still, or Syria?”

“Well we’ve been on the way for hours.” He looked at his watch. “Yea, we’ve got to be in Syria by now.” He shifted uncomfortably; his leg having fallen asleep. “We’re heading straight for the heart of evil, straight to Da’esh. I don’t know if you can see from where you are but we aren’t on the road anymore. Haven’t been for a while. We’re driving across the open desert. Looks like we’re heading straight west.”

Susan stared intently at Heja. She wasn’t sure if she should share her idea with him. “Do you want to escape together?” She blurted it out without thinking.

That was excellent! What advice would you give someone who wants to be a writer?

Just write! Listen to other people’s stories and tell your own.

Anything additional you want to share with the readers?


I’d love their support by promoting or purchasing my book because I’m donating part of my sales to help refugees. We can make a difference by supporting each other and caring for one another. Kindness is the key to doing the most good for the world. 


Perfect! Well, I wish you all the best! Thank you for speaking with me.

Big Foot Hunting Licenses!!



My family asked me what I WANTED TO DO. This is rare. I usually get asked if I would like to do something. Seldom do I get to choose. So, naturally, I said I wanted to day trip to the nearest BigFoot museum. 

My closest one is in Cherry Log, GA right outside Elijah.

I met a little resistance at first, but the 13 year old won the day with her decision to accompany me on my day quest.

When you pull up to the museum you immediately know you are in Sasquatch country. You are in the valley between several mountains, one side being a national park. Just inside the door is a board where people have pinned their personal, local sitings.

Inside, you purchase your museum tickets (a mere $8 per attendee). Then your host opens the velvet rope and lets you into the exhibit. This will not be the last time you see red velvet though. Among other items, the museum hosts a certified plaster butt print of a BigFoot sitting on the velvet cloth. 

In addition, there are small tv screens with eyewitness reports. We saw national guardsmen who entered the woods for a seek and rescue operation (downed helicopter - the museum had some of the wreckage). At the crash site they came face to face with several "Wild Men."

There is the very convincing man in his Carhart overalls (also on display) that met a BigFoot face to face in his tree stand. He had a harrowing experience outrunning it and its friend back to his truck. 

But lest you think this is all for show, they also have casts of footprints, verified pictures, recordings of BigFoot at night (thats the one that took one of my family members from a 3 to a 6 on the "I Believe scale"). There are historic accounts from around the world, newspaper clippings from all over, maps, and this great listing of BigFoot diet preferences:

sorry for the poor film quality. There is something about Sasquatch research that leads to such fuzzy filmography. But I promise this sign was not a fabrication. It was really in the museum.

My family all left captivated. Everyone, whether it was the one who said they were a "1" or me (I went in as an "8" on the "I Believe" scale) came out more a believer.

And the good news is that these museums are all over the country. People who love BigFoot (one man we saw a video of witnessed BigFoot 40 years ago and is still on the hunt for a second glimpse) want to share their findings. 

Here is the one I attended:

Expedition: BigFoot!

But there are many, many more around the country and around the world!

Yes, we did go on from the museum to visit an authentic mine. We panned for gold and saw how miners lived in the 1800's. Yes, we ate southern style (fried chicken, cream corn, green beans, pot roast, mashed potatoes, fried okra, cornbread, etc...) at the Smith House. We even walked the town square in the little nearby town of Dahlonega, GA. But on the way home the talk was still all Sasquatch.

I for one, can't wait for my family to grant me another day to decide our path. It may be a while, but if there is one thing a true believer must have - it is patience.

Finally!  A state with some sense for increasing revenue AND giving people what they want!

And what is it people want, you ask? Stimulus checks? Better jobs? Lower interest rates? 
Hell no.
Big Foot. Stuffed and mounted over the fireplace.

And Oklahoma, once the land of the pioneer looking to make a new life for him and his family, has opened up yet another great opportunity. They have legislation on the table to provide an official Bigfoot hunting season.

In January, 2021, Oklahoma Rep. Justin Humphrey made a move that will place him on Mount Rushmore one day. He introduced a bill to the state legislature to open up licenses for Bigfoot hunting season.

There seems to be some debate whether the Big guy even exists. I did a quick google search and came up with incontrivertible truth. Incontrovertible  coming from the Latin: Incontro meaning "super fuzzy" and veritable meaning "out of focus picture
You may not be convinced, but be aware that the FBI have an actual file on the Big Guy. This article tells you all about it... well... except like any good conspiracy the forms are redacted and you have to subscribe to the History Channel newsletter to read all about it.  Link Here

The good news for you and I is there appears to be no test for belief. The casual hunter and the dedicated Bigfoot man of lore and legend alike can apply for a license, so long as it is the appropriated season.

Now, I know what some of you are thinking. Hey! Isn't Bigfoot on the endangered animal list? I mean... how many of them are there? Depends on who you ask. But the bill as it is currently given only allows for trapping. It doesn't, however, come with a $25,000 reward.

Now, one expert I heard from says there are actually thousands of them. Just saying. And apparently they like to sneak around at night, look in your windows, and eat your chickens.

This is probably wise and will certainly help people from shooting their mother-in-laws or ex's thinking they had the actual famed beast in their sites. And it will keep the environmentalists at peace with the fact that we in America still want to know the answers to the great questions: Does God exist? When does a cupcake become a cake? And is Big Foot real.

I for one am a believer. And I will definitely be loading up the wagon and hitting the trail to Oklahoma if and when season opens.



I was given a copy of the audio book from Warren in exchange for an impartial review. Below is my review. Overall, I would recommend the read. I usually do not enjoy audio books read by the author but this one was definitely an exception. Being more travel journal than multi-character work of fiction, the author's voice is perfect and his recording is spot on without issues.

With no further adieu: 

I worked many years doing intakes for a counseling center. People who wanted to live alone, liked dogs more than people, believed in government conspiracies, etc... we’re often set off based on their refusal to conform to the society’s norms. I always wondered about their stories. Warren Makes some bold claims like the “cootie virus” isn’t real and has very definitive views of hospitality, women, European men, restaurant etiquette, and pot. But Warren never asks you to accept his worldview nor do you have to share it to enjoy the read. It reads like a good personal journal enhanced by the fact that the author is also the narrator. I’ve traveled, often on a budget, but there is a great gap between that and being homeless in a foreign country. The details to finding food, petting teddy ruxom, counting protein, protecting electronic gear, and dealing with language barriers bring the story to life. On the down side, and a problem I see with a lot of memoirs whether life bios or just a short time period like this, the author’s narrative sometime seems aimless. There are times when it is hard to see where the story is going (though he lays it out pretty clearly in chap 31). Although maybe that is the point - maybe the journey matters more than the designation and this was a good journey to follow. “Welcome to Europe. The land without men.” Oh, and energy vampires.


Today, we have an opportunity to talk to Patrick Warren. Patrick has written the book, “Just Go Man: Hiking and Wild Camping in a Foreign Land During the Worldwide 'Pandemic'”.  What interested me about the book was how it came to be. After getting stuck in the EU and suffering a loss of income during the worldwide "pandemic", Patrick decided to head to Croatia and live off grid for a few months while hiking and wild camping. 

First, let me thank you for joining me.  I appreciate you giving me your links and I want to share those with our readers.

Book title: Just Go Man: Hiking and Wild Camping in a Foreign Land During the Worldwide “Pandemic”

genre: non-fiction travel/adventure

Can you tell us a little about yourself and what led you to start writing?

I started writing non-fiction recently during my world travels. With everything going on in the world right now, it seemed like the right time to start recording my observations and sharing my experience with others using the written word. 

Do you write full-time or around another job? How do you schedule your time to write?


I don't write full-time but it's definitely an essential part of my job as an online entrepreneur. I tend to write blogs and sales copy for various websites that I run. While that might seem unimportant to the casual observer, writing sales copy teaches you how to concentrate on making everything- every word- matter to the reader. 


For the book I would sit down and write 1500 – 2000 words in a session, which usually took me about an hour. I really liked writing directly after I finished hiking for a few hours. With all the blood pumping, your brain spits out more ideas than you know what to do with. 


Where do you get your inspiration, information, and ideas for books?


My inspiration comes from the thought that maybe sharing insight or the details of one of my daily experiences might positively affect a single soul out there. My YouTube channel has taught me that even the smallest thing can have an impact on someone else's life. As someone who watches videos myself from content creators around the web and rarely tunes into mainstream news or typical television, I know it's true for me from a viewer standpoint as well. 


For me, writing is all about hooking your audience with curiosity, making a promise, then delivering value and making good on your promise. Having respect for your audience's time, their attention and potential interests keeps you grounded and focused on the point you want to make as you tell your story. It guides you and keeps you honest.


I drew upon “The Catcher in the Rye” by J.D. Salinger and “Roughing It” by Mark Twain for the format and style of my book specifically. I appreciate how these books impart a slight feeling of dread as you tag along with the writer during their journey. The minor and seemingly mundane details really add to the feeling that you're there with them, which I think is essential for making what you write come to life. People can relate a little bit to suffering and vulnerability, but not too much of it, and it often helps if you smooth it out with some humor.


"I chose to go to Croatia because they were one of the few countries allowing in Americans and it was a short train ride from Germany and Austria where I was in August of 2020." 

Please tell us about your current release.


This book is about a period of time during my current perpetual world travels which began long before the “Coronavirus Crisis”, but continued throughout and still do to this day. I was in Germany when everything started to lock down, so ever since March of 2020, it's been a game of hot potato for me, having to find countries that will actually allow an American to enter and hopefully not overstaying my VISA.


I chose to go to Croatia because they were one of the few countries allowing in Americans and it was a short train ride from Germany and Austria where I was in August of 2020. In addition to this, my income post-pandemic from my online business decreased dramatically during 2020, so I wanted to experiment with living in a tent to save some money while hiking down the coast. 


Free exercise hiking through a country. Wild camping (hopefully I won't get caught). And buckets of sweaty hot sunshine with free baths in the Adriatic Sea.


Book Excerpt


“Hiking along the Croatian coast is like walking through a cemetery with a breathtaking view. I've walked by more roadside memorials and tombstones for the departed than in any other country in the world or scenic coastal drive, and I've spent a fair share of time driving along Highway One in California, as well as some winding roads in the mountains near San Diego. 


I'm assuming most, if not all, of the memorials are for people who died in car or motorcycle crashes. Whose fault? I don't speak Croatian, but I'm sure it's probably not written on their grave. That would just be tacky, I suppose. After you've seen about 15 – 20 of these makeshift grave sites, you kind of become desensitized to them. 


Some of them even have pictures of the deceased on them- one even had a picture of a dude and a separate picture of his motorcycle, which as they say, is worth a thousand words. On one memorial, let's call it a mass grave since it was for 2 people, they put up the photos of the guys who died and the pictures were maybe just a little too telling. They kinda looked like scumbags, maybe not school shooter or terrorist level, but they definitely had the look of dudes with attitudes, and not good ones either. 

Sometimes the roadside memorials have fresh flowers and candles, or maybe they're plastic, battery-operated fake candles, and I've checked the date of death just to see how long people are still honoring the memory of the lost. I've seen it go as high as 15 years into the past.” 


Who are your favorite authors?


Shakespeare, Orwell, Dickens, Twain


Now, I noticed you have gotten several reviews, including one who apparently felt offended at your book?

If you're not making somebody angry, then you're probably just a pussy.

One more time, where can someone go to purchase your book?
