Glenn Haggerty and Free Books!

Drugs infiltrate Tyler Higgins’ middle school, turning ordinary kids into brain-dead druggies. When his friend is infected, Tyler decides to cut the small town drug flow by ratting out the dealer before it’s too late.

Before we meet today's author, I want to announce that the winner of the signed copy of A Rebel Heart, by Beth White, is:

I encourage readers to keep commenting and/or subscribe at right (above my list of books) in order to learn about new releases! U.S. subscribers are entered in the drawings a second time when they comment.

And now let's visit with novelist Glenn Haggerty, author of the action adventure/mystery suspense novel, Chase, Intense Book 3 (Freshwater Publications, April 2018).

Glenn writes inspiring adventures with an edge. No matter how dark the day, finding hope to pursue the prize is the core of all his novels and studies.

He is a member of ACFW (American Christian Fiction Writers), a graduate of Vision Loss Resources and Bethel Seminary, the father of six and grandfather of seven. Glenn likes tandem biking, kayaking, and daydreaming and lives in Minneapolis with his wife.

He is also an award-winning author with short stories published in Splickety, Havok, Cadet Quest and Partners. Chase, the third book in his Intense series was released on April 1, 2018.

Please tell us one random thing we might not know about you.

I’ve hit both the California and the Florida beaches. I’m not going to say which is better.

Please tell us a bit more about the plot of Chase.

In Chase, Tyler, a middle school newbie, watches helplessly as his friend, Jake, descends into drugs. With the help of a couple of classmates and encouraged by the local police, Tyler begins shadowing drug runners to rat out the methamphetamine dealer before his friend turns into a brain dead druggie.

But Tyler has underestimated the power and raw evil that is about to be unleashed against him.

There are lots of twists and turns and character surprises as Tyler and his friends come face to face with organized evil. Faith and courage are tested to the max, and many lessons are learned regarding life and friendships.

What is it about Tyler that will make your readers care about him?

I think Tyler embodies the contradictions of many 13-year-old boys. Wanting to be included, wanting to be the hero, but still cowed by fear. Naïve and self deprecating, he is also stubborn and tenacious. He struggles to figure out another complex facet of friendship even as he struggles to figure out where girls fit, if they fit, into his life. In the end he learns to apply faith, and God does some extraordinary things through him.

Imagine you’ve been contracted to write a novel about a real person. Who would you most like to write about?

Billy Graham.

What is the last novel you read that you would recommend?

The Frozen Hours: A Novel of the Korean War, by Jeff Shaara. It was well researched and also well written. Through it I better understand the Korean War and the world as we know it today.

I read his Gods and Generals. You're right--the man is an excellent researcher and writer. What are you working on now?

My next book in the Intense series is tentatively titled, Hyde, which follows the theme of the first three books and once again also serves as the name of the main antagonist. It is set in Florida where Tyler is vacationing with his cousins. Once again, they get caught up in a mysterious disappearance that has to do with modern day pirates and treasure buried in plain sight. I’ve done some research on the Spanish gold fleet of 1715 and discovered some interesting possibilities.

Thanks, Gail. As a reader, I usually connect a little better with historical fiction, but I do enjoy both. I do think however that contemporary is harder to write--for me anyway.

Trish Perry said...

lol, as a writer I'm just the opposite of you, Glenn. Because of the additional research involved, and the concern that I might miss something important, I struggle with historical writing. But I love both genres, as Gail does.
