Author Interview with GD Tinnams
I’m interviewing G.D. Tinnams today, author of science-fiction “Hunter No More”. Welcome to my blog, and thanks for answering my questions.
1. When did you know you wanted to be an author?
I don’t remember the exact age, but it was very very young, probably under ten. It was basically an off shoot of being a bookworm, I wanted to write it too.
2. Where did you get the inspiration for Hunter No More?
3. What is your editing process like?
4. What was the most challenging part of writing this book?
5. Did you set any writing goals for 2014? Did you accomplish them?
Real life got in the way in 2014, lots of ideas but no story. 2015, I hope will be a different. Ideas are brewing and it’s only a matter of time until they come to fruition. 6. What are your writing goals for 2015?
About The Book
Author: G.D. Tinnams
Genre: Science Fiction
The Hunter Class Spacecraft designated ‘The Amberjack’ disappeared during a routine mission to Seek, Locate and Destroy the enemy Machine Mind contingent known as ‘The Ochre’. Conclusion: It was either destroyed by the Ochre or went rogue for reasons unknown. If sighted, approach with extreme caution.
On the planet Borealis, a violent revolution forces Samantha Marriot and her parents to flee their home for the relative safety of ‘The Rainbow Islands’. Once there, Sam discovers a secret her father has been keeping from her all her life, a secret that will change everything.
Meanwhile, The Machine Mind Hierarchy of Earth dispatches a ship to rid themselves of the planet’s troublesome human population. The only hope of a defence lies with a damaged binary Hunter unit that has long since abandoned both its programming and weaponry.
In order for the unit to succeed it must call upon the aid of an ancient enemy, and prove, once and for all, that it is a Hunter no more.
G.D. Tinnams has worked as a barman, a call centre operator, an IT support analyst, and a software tester. But during all this time he was also an insatiable reader of science fiction and fantasy books like Susan Cooper’s ‘The Dark Is Rising Sequence’, Orson Scott Card’s ‘Ender’s Game’, Robert Charles Wilson’s ‘Blind Lake’ and Greg Egan’s ‘Permutation City’. He is very fond of weird, mind-bending stories and decided quite early on to try writing some. ‘Hunter No More’ is his second novel.
