David Guenther (1962- ) born in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Raised in the small town of Onalaska, Wisconsin, among beautiful lakes and forests. In 1982 suffering the call of the road he enlisted in the United States Air Force. After starting the journey, Lilia Aldrete willingly joined the adventure. Twenty one years later after being either stationed or deployed to overseas areas in excess of 10 years he is fluent in the American dialect of the English language. Seeing much of the world and a few adventures too many the duo made Surprise, Arizona their new home. At this time David started to form the characters in his novel from the many characters he had met through those 21 years in the military and abroad. No good character is ever invented, it’s stolen from real life. His first book was self-published in December 2014
What inspires you to write?
My writing is an extension of my time in the military. You see as you progress in rank your stories are both funnier and more interesting to your audience. Now that I no longer have a captive audience I have had to change my medium from oral to written.
Many of the stories are stolen from my past. Many of the characters are influenced both by individuals I’ve served with as well as the different countries I’ve been to.
Tell us about your writing process.
I sit down and just start pecking away at the keyboard then correct my typos and continue pecking away at the keyboard then correct my typos and continue.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I don’t interact with them but I lose control of them. A minor character from my second book became the main character of book four.
Who are your favorite authors?
W.E.B. Griffin first author to get me hooked on fiction.
John Ringo not only got me really interested in science fiction, he made me decide to become a writer!
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I decided to self publish with Amazon because of how easy they made it. I then expanded to paperbacks with createspace. I am also finally doing all my books in audio through ACX.
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I love to turn the page when I read a book but also have become addicted to eBooks. I think both will continue neck in neck but that electronic will become the dominant media.because of the simplicity of download and the great variety of authors who will never see a publishing house.
What genres do you write?
