Tell us about yourself and how many books you have written.
I am Roderick Edwards. I’ve written over 10 books in less than 3 years. The books cover genres as wide as fiction, to autobiographic, to history, religion, politics and more. I live in the woods in central Florida which is a great place to think and write.
What is the name of your latest book and what inspired it?
Bandersnatch Jesus, is a story like none other. It allows the reader to have Jesus choose different scenarios than the biblical and historical. It is inspired not only by the old 1980s Choose Your Own Adventure books but also by the movie; Black Mirror: Bandersnatch.
Do you have any unusual writing habits?
I do not sit down until I pump out some pre-determined number of words, but rather I work in the yard; cutting grass or feeding the chickens until content comes to me.
What authors, or books have influenced you?
I like Isaac Asmiov.
What are you working on now?
Bandersnatch Jesus and about 3 other books. I am always writing.
What is your best method or website when it comes to promoting your books?
Facebook seems to work best.
Do you have any advice for new authors?
Your first book is a throw away book for you to learn the process. Have fun with it but don’t expect a lot from it.

To write because you love it, not to make money or get fame.

Authors don’t read many books lest they sound like other authors.
