R Weir is an IT Professional by day and Author by night, living in beautiful Colorado with his wife, daughter and dog, Emma. When not glued to the computer for work and writing, he relaxes by enjoying the outdoors; playing tennis, travelling in his motorhome and riding a motorcycle wherever the wind takes him. His Jarvis Mann Detective stories have spent time on several Amazon Bestseller lists, with more cases on the horizon. I must say it again, "I do believe that he can over throw the King of Kindle, with no problem. lol If you don't know who the King of Kindle is then I suggest you google it after reading this review and I bet you will agree." With that said let's get on with the interview.
B.K.: Describe your writing style in 3 words.
R. Weir:Mystery, Humor, Action
B.K.: What book character would you be, and why?
IR. Weir: It would be Jarvis Mann, of course, since I write in first person. Though he is way cooler and tougher than I am, but his humor and determination is all me.
B.K.: If you could time travel, what year would you go to and why?
R. Weir: I’d go back to last year, in November before my motorcycle accident, hoping to avoid the whole moment. For it’s been the hardest, most painful thing I’ve ever had to deal with.
B.K.: What would your ten-year-old self say to you now?
R. Weir: Enjoy your youth, as time goes by so quickly.
B.K.: Who is your greatest influence?
R. Weir: Writing influence would be Robert B. Parker, the great author of the Spenser and Jesse Stone novels.
B.K.: What/who made you start writing?
R. Weir: I wrote poetry and song lyrics in my teen years, to deal with my teenage angst. It made me feel better getting the words on paper, since I didn’t have many outlets to deal with my unhappiness and anger.
B.K.: Are there other genres that you write or wish to write?
R. Weir: I wrote three novels in the 80’s that were never published, dealing with a CIA agent recruited from retirement to go after a terrorist group. I’ve considered updating them and look at publishing them, if I can ever get the time.
B.K.: Tell us about your current book project?
R. Weir: Currently I’ve started another short story featuring Jarvis Mann, titled “The Case of the Invisible Soul” where he helps out a homeless man who claims other homeless people in his area are disappearing. I also have a rough outline and a beginning written for Jarvis going head to head against a serial killer in “The Front Range Butcher”.
