An Interview with Author Francis H. Powell

Author Francis H Powell

Author Francis H. Powell shares his thoughts of creativity, his love or art and his latest book.

RL: Tell me about your latest book and why you wrote it?

FHP: My latest book is called “Adventures of Death, Reincarnation and Annihilation” Set in different time in a variety of settings and time periods, the past, the present and the future, the book explores the inevitable unknown that lies before us all “death”. Death can be arrive in a multitude of forms. Each part of the book explores different themes. Author Francis H PowellThere are characters who following their demises have to face up to their lurid pasts. There some who face annihilation and others who are in a crazy pursuit of world destruction. We are living in an age in which it appears that the doomsday clock is ticking ever faster, as we teeter over the edge of world destruction. The book aims to contain some ironic twists. Even as young children we build up nightmare visions of what death involves. The reader is often left to distinguish between what is real and what is not, as stories reside within stories and the story tellers can never be fully trusted. Not all the book is doom and gloom, there are Elsa Grun’s bizarre encounters with men and Shellys’ hapless husband Arnie.

From secluded beach houses, to obscure motels, to visions of heaven, which takes the form of the Hotel Paradiso, to the world of the future death is always a wild adventure, that can’t be ignored.

RL: What do you hope to accomplish now that your book is out?

FHP: To get as many people as possible to read it. To spread myself a sfar and wide as possible on the social media. An ultimate dream would be for it to be the inspiration for a film. I hope people enjoy reading my book.

RL: What do you hope to accomplish now that your book is out?

FHP: I went to Art School, I love painting and making sculptures and most creative pursuits. I also write music on my computer.

RL: How many books have you written? Which is your favorite?

FHP: I have had two books published. They are different in their own ways, I can’t say I prefer one or the other. Hopefully there is some kind of evolution. The new book has elements of science fiction, which is a new departure.

RL: Does writing energize or exhaust you?

FHP: I find it quite relaxing. When I paint I get in a frenzied state, get paint on my clothes, but with writing I am calmer.

RL: If you could choose one superpower, what would it be? What would you do with that superpower?

FHP: Total control of Twitter, sending tweets to a billion book lovers, who would seek my books out.
