Tiberius Found and Ethan

Tiberius Found by Andrew Goodman
Tiberius Found

What would you do if your whole life was a lie?

Daniel Henstock thinks he’s an ordinary schoolboy. But on his sixteenth birthday, his world is shaken to its core by a shocking revelation. Daniel is the world’s first genetically-engineered human – and Gregory Dryden, the man who created him, wants him back to continue his deadly experiments.

Running for his life, Daniel is forced to go ‘off grid’ in New York. In this near-future America, where the security-obsessed authorities force citizens to carry DNA cards, Daniel meets the feisty and beautiful Eleanor. But by falling for her, Daniel is putting her in terrible danger.

Daniel pursues the truth about his origins but is hunted by an agent sent by Dryden to bring him home. Can Daniel find out the truth about his origins whilst evading those who think they own him? As his enemies close in, Daniel must draw on resources he didn’t know he had to win his freedom – but in doing so he may be walking into a deadly trap…

1) Most authors find inspiration in music, or pictures. What (if anything) inspires you?
Other writers - I read a lot and try to understand what makes their work so good: sentence and story structure, character development, narrative and story arc to name a few. Anthony Horowitz and Eoin Colfer, for example, make it all seem so simple but I know it's years of hard work that makes what they write appear so easy.

2) How long have you been writing?
Seriously for about five years. I've been writing since an early age but only recently have I been studying how writing story's works. It's not as simple as putting one word after another.

3) Have you always wanted to write Young Adult?
Not really. I started writing screenplays- of varying styles and genres- but have gone back to writing stories similar to those I read as a young teen: action, mystery, danger. 

4) Are any of your characters based on someone you know?
Now that would be telling. Composite's of people, perhaps.

This or That:
Summer or Winter?
Summer, but a crisp Winter is just as good

Dogs or Cats?
Dogs (I have a Welsh Terrier called Ceiwyn (Kay-win))

Hard-copy or ebook?
Pen or Pencil?
Peanut Butter or Jelly? 
Peanut Butter- crunchy
Chocolate or Vanilla?
Chocolate - dark & bitter

Ethan by P. T. Michelle
Brightest Kind of Darkness Book .5
Ethan (Brightest Kind of Darkness, #0.5) 
Ethan Harris never thought monsters and darkness would consume his daily thoughts, but every night the same visions repeat in his dreams. He’s careful to project a semblance of normalcy, keeping the suffocating darkness locked inside. As much as he wishes he could focus on girls, sports, and cars like other seventeen-year-olds; nothing distracts him from his own demons or shines through.

Until Nara Collins crosses his path. The blonde fascinates and intrigues him, giving him a measure of peace he’s never felt before.

When Ethan discovers there’s more to Nara than she allows others to see, that she might have a unique secret of her own, suddenly his world comes into focus.

Note: Ethan is a novella PREQUEL to Brightest Kind of Darkness. This story will give some of Ethan’s background and lead up until the day he tells Nara there’s a bomb in the school.
