ImageThere are few things in my life that make me happy.  Writing, reading a good book, being marginally overweight and my insane love of country music to name a few.  So when I tweeted the talent Mr John Goode, author of the new Dreamspinner Press released novel Taking Chances, and he actually said yes to an interview, I added John-Goode-knowing-who-I-am to that list of happy-makers.  Within three hours of receiving my email, he had replied, and what follows documents the hilarity that is the inside of Mr. Goode’s mind.  Please enjoy it as much as I did, and if you’re any kind of fan-boy like me, you’ll need a cigarette and a cold shower afterwards too!  No?  Just me?  Naww, shucks.




Remember back in the 90’s when the cult film Jerry McGuire was released?  When Renee Zellweger uttered that one line that still gets used by everyone today?

You had me at hello!”

That’s how I feel about John Goode.  As soon as I picked up my copy of Tales from Foster High (actually I read the individual novellas) I completely and 100% fell in love.  The guys style is so beautifully conversational, it just drips of the tongue, and as an aside to that, he writes in the first person, for two separate characters, both with their own voices, both so sublimely endearing.
