Author Thursday: Interview with Keith Melton


1. What flavor is your writing?

Hmm. Crunchy-salty, maybe. There’s profanity. And stuff breaking. So it’s like pretzels being hit with a hammer.

2. If this book was made into a movie, who would you cast to play the characters?

All the male characters would be played by Denzel Washington. All the female characters by Tatiana Maslany from Orphan Black. That’s all you’d need.

3. What is your favorite scene in 9mm Blues?

Some of the quiet scenes with Chris and his adopted stray dog I rather like. Unfortunately, my favorite scene contains a major spoiler, so I can’t mention it. But everything builds to that scene.

4. What are you reading now or what books do you have in your TBR pile?

I’m reading The Eyes of the Overworld by Jack Vance. Also The Burning Room by Michael Connelly.

5. What are you working on now?

Spanner Jack, which I was going to write as a serial on my website and failed. If readers like 9mm Blues, I’d be happy to write a sequel. Also, I’m working on a rewrite of Shadow Crew, the third Nightfall Syndicate book.


Book Blurb

Flesh-eating ghouls. A kidnapped child. A knight’s honor caught in the crossfire…

Christopher Hill is a knight in the Order of the Thorn—the sacred order of soldiers armed with submachine guns, swords, and magic. Their mission is simple: destroy the ancient, profane evils that prey upon humanity.

But that mission becomes far more complicated when a young boy is kidnapped by flesh-eating ghouls, turning a routine search-and-destroy mission into a nightmare standoff. Barricaded inside a run-down house, the ghouls gain a deadly upper hand, and while the body count rises, Hill finds himself caught in a power struggle within the order that puts his life, and his honor, at risk, and threatens both the mission and the boy Hill has vowed to see home safe, no matter what…

9mm Blues is available at Amazon.
