Today I am excited to run a feature on Jim Bernheimer! He was nice enough to send me some of his books to read and I really enjoyed them. He writes novels and short stories with a unique mix of urban fantasy/paranormal/horror/mystery/fantasy and throws a good dash of humor in them.
Thanks to Jim for taking the time to answer some questions! Below I have listed all of the books/short stories that Jim has published. If you haven’t read anything by Jim you should; he is an excellent writer and very entertaining.
Now on to the Interview!
When did you start writing?
How long did it take you to first get published?
What has been the toughest part about writing?
You work in IT full-time, so when do you get most of your writing done?
Who is your favorite current author?
What projects are you currently working on? Will there be another book in the Dead Eye series book in the future?
I see that you have C. T. Westcott as one of the authors who influenced you to write. To be honest I had never heard or him but upon looking up his writings found that he writes military sci-fi of a sort. Pennies for the Ferryman also features an ex-military man. Is your life or writing influenced by the military in some way?
Another writer who influenced you was Edgar Allen Poe; what is your favorite Edgar Allen Poe story?
Your short stories are really excellent and you do a great job of creating a detailed world in a small amount of space. What came first for you writing short stories or novels? Which is harder for you to write and which do you enjoy writing more?
Let’s say you are Mike Ross from Pennies for the Ferryman, if you could see any ghost which ghost would you choose?
What is your favorite food?
Where is your favorite place that you have visited and why did you visit?
Horror, Humor, and Heroes and Dead Eye: Pennies for the Ferryman
