interviewed Garon Whited for the Interviews section of the website.

Today we are chatting with Garon Whited the author of Nightlord: Sunset

Tell us something unexpected about yourself!

My career as a ley line salesman and salsa repairman never really took off. I did much better as a radio DJ and as a strip club DJ. Although, I hope all those years in I.T. weren’t wasted. If I had it to do over again, though, I would probably have skipped the job as a parakeet tamer…Vicious little monsters.


What novels affected you the most growing up?

“Have Space Suit, Will Travel” by Robert Heinlein and “Changeling” by Roger Zelazny. Now they’re classic science fiction and fantasy, but at the time they were groundbreaking.


Where did the idea for your current book come from?

My overwhelming disgust at some of the vampire stuff being published today. I got a hundred pages into a vampire novel, realized I could eat a pen and produce better work the next morning, and decided to write one.

Do you think there’s any way you could ever run out of ideas for books?

No. They say writer’s block is when your imaginary friends won’t speak to you. My imaginary friends wake me up at night just to chat. Half the time I have the conversation and go back to sleep without writing anything down. If it’s important, they’ll mention it again. Running out of ideas is like running out of air. It can be done, but some fairly special circumstances are required.
