Featured Interview With JDeVereS
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Raised in the valleys, woodlands, and mountains of Northern California, JDeVereS developed a great love for Nature. From an early age, he began writing both prose and poetry as an outlet for his creative energies.
Initially working as a “free-lance” writer generating celebrity interviews and nature articles for various magazines… he gradually moved into the worlds of science and information technology. Eventually, these divergent interests merged in a constantly changing world until the art and science blended together becoming the catalyst for the concept of creating “The Elfkin Journals”.
Many of the sci-fi aspects of this novel are predicated on actual scientific thesis and theorems. While quantum mechanics and particle entanglement are proven scientific concepts… the fantasy of the story evolves from the author’s construct of matrix crystals that allow for “entanglement” at cosmic levels.
“The Elfkin Journals: Blending of the Races” blends action, romance, adventure and science intended to open the reader to new levels of thought!
It is the author’s belief that the miracles of today are the result of yesterday’s dreams!
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I was already an avid reader when still in my early teens – then a friend loaned me my first science fiction book (Andre Norton aka Alice Mary North)… I WAS HOOKED!
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I love many genres… but science fiction and fantasy are my favorites.
Where does one start when you think of great fantasy/science fiction writers… the list is long but if you go back to the basics – Homer, Jules Verne, Tolkien, Asimov. Andre Norton… but – let’s stretch the list… Kipling, LeGuin, McCaffery… really any author that stretches our minds, lifts our hearts, improves our souls.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
“The Elfkin Journals: Blending of the Races… is my attempt to blend the theorems of quantum mechanics (e.g. particle entanglement) with the possible combinations that occur through matrix stones.
It is about love conquering evil… it is about the basic premise that “power corrupts – absolute power corrupts absolutely”. There is love and adventure, romance and bravery but in the end – it is about real people standing tall and making a different!
