Author Interview – David Jester

Do you intend to make writing a career? Hopefully I already have. I’m doing okay, and as I don’t have anything else to fall back on, I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it continues.

Have you developed a specific writing style? I like to think I have a couple that I can switch between depending on the genre or perspective. I have been working on a new style recently though, which I used in Evergreen and Grastik’s Plastic Princess. I love the idea of following a community rather than a single protagonist. It feels warm and involving to write, being able to delve into the hearts of many and the collective feelings of the whole, and I hope it comes across the same to the reader.

Have you ever had writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it? I try to read as much as possible. I also try to force myself to write. It doesn’t matter what, just as long as it’s something. It tends to get the juices flowing.

Can you share a little of your current work with us? I have a few books on the go. The newest one will be published under my other pen name in the next few weeks. The next David Jester book will probably be a series of flash fiction pieces. After that I have a comedy novel about a hapless vigilante or a horror novel. I’m not sure which I’ll devote my time to finishing first.

Can you tell us about your main character? The main character is the community itself, although I do devote more time to Patrick Ryan, the head of the community, than anyone else. He’s young and has had a bit of a troublesome past, but he is trusted and respected by the others, so he’s the one they turn to when the murders begin.
