Today we are chatting with Mark Torres the author of A Stirring in the North Fork.
Tell us something unexpected about yourself!
I am a labor and employment attorney who recently released my debut novel.
What novels affected you the most growing up?
The classics like Dante Inferno and anything by Machiavelli along with works by Toni Morrison and Frederick Douglass.
Where did the idea for your current book come from?
I was inspired by the scenery of the North Fork of Long Island.
Do you think there’s any way you could ever run out of ideas for books?
No, so long as I can visualize it I can write it.
What is your routine for writing and has this method changed over the span of your career?
Due to my busy schedule, I best describe my writing as “opportunistic”.
How important is marketing and social media for you?
Very important, but I strive to not be intrusive.
What advice would you have for other writers?
Write without limits, trust in your readers and let your writing flow from your heart.
What are you reading now?
Nothing for leisure. Too busy with work.
What’s your next step?
To complete my second novel.
