Recently, I had the opportunity to interview the wonderful debutante author Michael E. Thies. Mike's debut novel, The Trials of the Core, the first book in the series Guardian of the Core, is expected to be published in December this year! We had a discussion over his book, his writing and other stuffs.
Hi Mike! Its such a pleasure to have you here! Welcome to my blog. To start the interview, first tell us something about yourself.
