Author Interview: Mark JG Fahey

What made you write a book about…?

I have always been fascinated with Halley’s Comet from a early age and one day this

amazing thought came into my mind. Halley Comet is really a intergalactic casino = Halley’s Casino.

After that the story just flowed out onto the page almost by itself as if it had a mind of its own.

How long have you been writing?

I have been writing all my life, poetry, lyrics, short stories but finally found the

discipline to write a whole novel. Concentration, focus, determination played a huge part.

I had been telling anyone that would listen since my teens that I would one day write a book and I have

written two and I’m now in the process of writing the third.

Do you ever get writer’s block? What helps you overcome it?

You know I do not believe in writers block as such. What I mean by that is, if one

is focused, has a plan, a clear head, it should all fall into place.

Of course who hasn’t stared at a blank page, a blank page is only blank until

you fill it.

What is your next project?

Well, Halley’s Casino is part of a trilogy the second book  Marine – Halley’s Casino is

is available alone with Halley’s Casino and the third, here is a news flash for you.

The third book of the trilogy is entitled ( drum roll please) Return Trip – Halley’s Casino III

is 50% completed.

After that I have three other books mapped out though not sci fi. ( spoilers)

What is the last great book you’ve read?

The dictionary!. Don’t leave home without it  🙂

His excellent culinary skills have entertained many far and wide.

Marine is the second book in the Halley’s Casino trilogy.
