In Boston an assailant immobilizes a sleep-deprived young mother, blinds her with a black hood, and steals her infant son. When a second abduction occurs in an identical fashion, the media dubs this terrifying perpetrator "The Piper" after the Pied Piper of Northern European folk legend.

Stumped by these mysterious kidnappings--with no witnesses, no leads, no ransom, and no sign of the missing babies--local authorities reach out to Special Agent Jackson Byrne and his FBI team specializing in child abduction. As Jack becomes embroiled in the child abduction case, he tries to prepare himself and his anxiety-riddled family for the trial of his most sensationalized criminal ever, the Playground Predator.

Through themes of loss and grief, retribution and repentance, The Piper follows both the Playground Predator trial and the Piper's infant abductions as each story fervently races to its unforgettable climax.

Indie Author Interview: A. Martin


Indie Author Interview with A. Martin - Author of the Short Story Collection After Midnight.

A. Martin is from a small aboriginal community in the province of New Brunswick, Canada. He is the author of horror novels, Ouija, and Black October. His short stories and flash-fiction have appeared in such popular publications as MicroHorror.com, TwistedTongue Magazine, AlienSkin Magazine, Flashes In The Dark Magazine, and ShortnScaryStories.com.

Interview with A. Martin

Author A. Martin
Author A. Martin
Alan Kealey (Indie Author News): What is your (writing) background?
A. Martin: Well, my first fiction sale was way back in 2007; a flash fiction piece (usually under one thousand words) to a popular ezine back then, AlienSkin Magazine. I was my first acceptance, with any magazine. I’d accumulated a hefty rejection pile for a couple of years before working with an editor that could tell me a little more than just to quit and safe myself time and grief. We worked together every day for over a month, knocking literary knowledge into my brain like a bullet-train and eventually through trial and error, I’d gotten to learn just about everything I possibly could when it came to writing fiction and my strong points. Turns out; it’s what I always loved the most: Short stories. If it wasn’t for that vigorous learning experience, I know you and I wouldn’t be having this conversation. I owe more than I could ever give. I keep that in mind when writing my fiction.

Who are your favorite writers, your favorite books, and who or what are your writing influences?
There’s a good few. And by good; they’re great! Like Walter Mosley, Sidney Sheldon, Heather Graham, Jack Kecthum, Neil Gaiman, Dean Koontz, Stephen King, Ray Bradbury, Poe… I also watched a lot of Alfred Hitchcock Presents and loved every suspenseful minute! All of these writers are my influences; without their work, I probably wouldn’t even know if there was such readers for our kind of thing. Our horror; our suspense, our off-key imagery.

Funny enough, my favourite book of all time isn’t even what I write, or normally read. But it’s a book I read in high school and always struck a chord with me; check it out: The Journey Home by Michael J. McCarthy.

"I decided to try amusing myself with writing a fiction tale."

When did you first know that you wanted to be a writer?
When I was seventeen. Out of boredom, being quite underprivileged in the socially popular-department… I decided to try amusing myself with writing a fiction tale. After a slow start and ten minutes into it, I found the weirdest thing taking place: I couldn’t stop. I’d get reprimanded by teachers because of it, and oddly enough, when they could and I wasn’t around, they’d read my fiction. And after class ask me what happens next and that I should finish the tale. But that’s why I suppose I couldn’t stop… I wanted to find out what happens next too!
It quickly became something I just had to do; even as a hobby—I had to do it. It was part me, and I couldn’t get away from it, after a while. I don’t even really give myself credit for the simple idea of trying out fiction writing—to me, the more I gave into writing, and the more it had me in its clutches. Call it a good thing or a curse, well… for me, it’s been both. There’s definitely sacrificing involved, but I only realize it later after the next story I’m working on ends with a period and then I can get back into the Real World.

Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
Actually, I do. It was about a giant rabid python and my quest to get away from it before I became a human soup-bone. In the end, my father blasted its head off with a semi-automatic rifle. Heh, kids… what imaginations…

"Just get it done. And I did."

Tell us about your writing process. Do you have a writing routine?
Through my twenties I’d had a strict vigorous writing routine because I was writing a lot of short stories and sending them to every fiction magazine I could find. I’d get up and be ready at my computer by eight in the morning, sharp, churn out at least two stories by eleven or twelve and take the rest of the day off until after supper, where I’d read them over. If I figured they had any chance in hell, I’d edit one of them, or both, and have them signed and sealed and delivered by next morning first thing. By email or snail-mail—rain or shine, wind or snow. Just get it done. And I did.

Please, describe your desk/workplace.
The desk I have now is a lot smaller and confined compared to my first, which I’d had through my twenties. It was one of those simple but big one-piece hunks of metal where it could sit a home computer and a couple of printers; maybe a case of beer and your CD collection on it. I loved it; easy to clean, easy to find spare room for manuscripts and five to eight cups of coffee. Lifting it out of my room… not so much…

"[The Story] has me hostage until it’s told..."

What do you find easiest about writing? What the hardest?
