Danny Wynn on Books, Writing and Motivation - #AmReading #AmWriting #Literary

What’s your weakest character trait?
There are so many bad ones. Let’s just say I’m a bad person trying to do better.
Why do you write?
The magic of books has worked for me from a very early age, and it was only natural that I would want to try to create some of that magic, myself.
Have you always enjoyed writing?
Nobody always enjoys writing.
What motivates you to write?
To write something good that people read and truly moves them, makes them feel the tragicomedy that is human life, even if only for a few moments in the course of the book.
What writing are you most proud of?
The novella I’m promoting now, Man from the Sky.
What are you most proud of in your personal life?
That I built a satisfactory functional life out of the mess that was my upbringing. And of course, my wife and kids.
What books did you love growing up?
Winnie the Pooh, A Pass and a Prayer, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings, Lord of the Flies. 13. Who is your favorite author? Robert stone, graham greene, William boyd, john fowles, martin amis.
What book genre of books do you adore?
Thinking men’s adventure stories.
What book should everybody read at least once?
The Magus by Fowles
Is there any books you really don’t enjoy?
Books that seek only to entertain without intelligence.
What do you hope your obituary will day about you?
That I wrote some novels which found an audience, and that I am survived by my wife and two adult children.

How far would you go to add excitement to a life you felt was boring and meaningless?
For seventy-three-year-old Jaime, the answer takes him by surprise. Accustomed to a lonely life high up in the mountains on the western coast of Mallorca, his dull routine is suddenly shattered when a man parachutes from a plane and lands nearby. The plane crashes; the man lives.
It’s a drug smuggling operation gone bad. But Stefan, the man from the sky, has escaped with eight kilos of cocaine in a gym bag. Jaime brings Stefan home and is soon entangled in Stefan’s attempts to sell the cocaine and start a new life.
As they dodge Parisian drug dealers and corrupt Mallorcan police, Jaime’s search for excitement and Stefan’s resolve to find stability lead them both down dangerous paths.
