Featured Interview With Author Chris Smith
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Hi. My name is Chris Smith, and I was born and raised in South Africa. I'm currently living in Marina Beach, and I have 3 dogs.
I'm an author of 12 western novels and one fantasy adventure. Book 14 is on the way and I'm hoping to write a book per month for the foreseeable future. I grew up reading the amazing stories of Louis L'Amour and always wanted to write my own stories. In my spare time I fish, hunt, swim at the beach, and barbecue with friends and family. I love connecting with fans on social media and my writing goal is to break into the Top 100 on Amazon and stay there.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I began reading from age 6, but only started writing in my early 30's, and only started considering it as a career in 2020.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I enjoy all sorts of genres from westerns to crime thrillers to spy novels and thrillers. Lee Child is a favorite of mine and I think that the Jack Reacher books are amazing. James Patterson, Dick Francis, Agatha Christie, Robert Ludlum, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle…the list goes on.
My family inspire me because they are all avid, readers and I'm always trying to drag their attention away from their favourite authors to my books.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book is a crossover between my Jim Taylor, Mountain Man series and my Steve Savage, Bounty Hunter series.
Jim meets up with a young man who is on the run after falling afoul of an arrogant young rancher and his friends. Soon Jim and the youngster are trapped in the mountains, fighting against both the harsh elements and the vengeful ranch hands. Steve, who is Jim’s cousin, hears of their plight and come riding along to lend a hand, along with his friends Chen Lee and Xavier Colebright.
