Alex Mueck on Family, Friends & Writing @AlexMueck #Humor #AmWriting #AmReading

Do you find it hard to share your work?
No.  I have friends that also write and we share and help eachother.
Is your family supportive? Do your friends support you?
Yes, my family is extremely supportive and my friends have been brilliant as well.
Do you plan to publish more books?
I plan to never stop writing.
What else do you do to make money, other than write? It is rare today for writers to be full time…
I work at a Bank/Broker-Dealer.
What other jobs have you had in your life?
When I was young, I did it all, mowed lawns, delivered newspapers, shoveled snow.  Later, I did any odd job from selling shoes to working in a fast food chain.  But since college I have worked on Wall Street.
If you could study any subject at university what would you pick?
Ancient History – The Sumerians, Babylonians, Egyptians, et et
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be?
I love New York, and California as well, but there are great spots throughout the globe.  I suppose an apartment in Manhattan, a villa in Europe, and a condo in the Caribbean  would be alright.
How do you write – lap top, pen, paper, in bed, at a desk?
I write on a PC, but generally carry a pen and paper if an idea comes to mind.
How much sleep do you need to be your best?
Not much.  I sleep about 4-5 hours a day.
Is there anyone you’d like to acknowledge and thank for their support?
My parents.  I would have to write a story larger than all three of my books to document all they have done for me.
If you could have a dinner party and invite anyone dead or alive, who would you ask?
Dead there would be too many to list.  Alive, I’d settle for my friends family and girlfriend, but maybe some of my favorite bands could be on hand for the party.

"“A historical fiction comedy that packs
as much heart as humor.”
—Michael Dadich, award-winning author of The Silver Sphere
When a Harvard history professor receives a thesis paper titled Jesse James and the Secret Legend of Captain Coytus, from Ulysses Hercules Baxter—an underwhelming student—he assumes the paper must be a prank. He has never read such maniacal balderdash in his life. But after he calls a meeting with the student, Professor Gladstone is dismayed when Baxter declares the work is his own. As he takes a very unwilling Professor Gladstone back in time via his thesis, Baxter’s grade hangs in the balance as he attempts to prove his theory.
It is 1864 as philanderer and crusader Captain Coytus embarks on a mission to avenge his father’s death and infiltrates the Confederate Bushwacker posse looking for the man responsible, Jesse Woodson James. Accompanied by the woman of his dreams, Coytus soon finds himself temporarily appointed to be the sheriff of Booneville and commissions his less-than-loyal deputy to help him carry out his plan.
But when tragedy strikes, the Captain is forced to change his immature ways and redefine his lofty mission—more or less."
