R. C. and J. P. Carter, Co-Authors

CH: Today’s Guests are Co-Authors, R. C. and J. P. Carter. They love paranormal investigating and writing. Welcome to my blog, R. C. and J. P.

CH: How did you come up with the premise for this series?

RCC/JPC: When we first conceived the series, 3D printing was in its infancy. We had read in journals that it was possible to print human body parts. This was a fascinating concept. Having the minds of mystery writers, we thought someone could use this technology in a nefarious way.

CH: Did you have to do any special research to write these books or is it all imagination?

RCC/JPC: Yes, we researched 3D printing, how fraud investigators work and how the FBI actually conducts investigations. At the time, we wrote Clone Drones, no one in the private sector had weaponized drones. That was purely imagination.

CH: What is different and exciting that you bring to your readers through your writing style?

RCC/JPC: We combine the classic detective style with high tech crime. We also have an ensemble cast of both intelligent and strong female and male characters with integrity.

CH: Was it hard creating believable situations and issues or did you take them from real life and elaborate?

RCC/JPC: Some of the situations are taken from real life and we elaborated on them. Other situations are entirely from our imaginations. We would have to say they were more fun than difficult.

CH: As co-authors, do you each write a chapter or section or do you write together?

RCC/JPC: We write it together.

CH: Of the three books, which character was hardest to write? And develop?

RCC/JPC: The criminal brothers in Flash Zombies were the most difficult to write and develop.

CH: Of the three books, which character was your favorite to write?

RCC/JPC: We actually have three favorite characters in the series. They are Ryan, Siobhan and Rachel.

CH: Is there a message that you want the readers to grasp in any of the books?

RCC/JPC: O’Rourke crime novels were written purely for entertainment in the classic detective style. However, we are working on a children’s series and a young adult series both of which have a definite message.

CH: What kind of feedback are you getting from readers of this series?

RCC/JPC: People enjoy the fast-paced action and attention to geographic details.

CH: Is one book more popular with readers than the others?

RCC/JPC: Clone Drones is the most popular.

CH: What is your next writing project?

RCC/JPC: We are working on several at this time. A children’s series of different animal friends with diverse personalities, who learn to get along together. Also, a young adult novel about the early life of Jezebel. Several other projects are on the drawing board along with a major rewrite for Bioprints.

CH:  How to Find R. C. and J. P. Carter:

CH: Can you tell my audience where these books are sold?
