Ten Interview Questions for Origins:  Volume II of The Creature Kid Series.
What is the working title of your book?
Admist the pile of books I'm currently working on, Origins: Volume II of The Creature Kid Series is the one I'm talking about today.  It's a continuation from Shadow of Darkness and follows a teenage boy through a series of adventures as he comes to terms with the reality of not being human.

Where did the idea come from for the book?
Well I've always liked the idea of giving some sort of powers to an unasuming character who'd rather relinquish them all.  From that seed an entire series developed.

What genre does your book fall under?

YA Science Fiction/Paranormal

Which actors would you choose to play your characters in a movie rendition?

I like Jayden Smith as the main character.  He's about the right age and would fit nicely.
What is the one-sentence synopsis of your book?
Kid finds out he's not human, people want him dead, his parents aren't really his parents, bang! (I'm horrible with synopsis')
Will your book be self-published or represented by an agency?
Self-published on Amazon, etc.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
It's a WIP, I'm still writing it, lol.
What other books would you compare this story to within your genre?
Harry Potter meets Twilight meets City of Bones
Who or What inspired you to write this book?
My overwhelming desire to fly.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
It is jam packed with action and engaging characters.  You get to follow a set of characters on a journey and watch them grow through the series.
And the writer I’m tagging is -
Chris Ward, author of Tube Riders
