Ghost Writer

As cool as it would be to interview the Spirit of Vengeance from behind the safety of a cell phone, I find it every bit as cool to spend a half-hour in the company of Phil Elmore.  For the past several years, Elmore has ghost written Executioner novels for Gold Eagle publishing; his latest novel Dangerous Tides prompted me to contact him and ask for the interview.

Elmore is a professional writer, offering a variety of services through his website, philelmore.com. He also publishes the Martialist, an online magazine concerned with self-defense as “the inalienable right of every human being”. Elmore writes a variety of columns on a variety of subjects for a variety of publishers, some of which are detailed on the front page of his website.

He was kind enough to take a break from his current novel and speak with me over the phone about writing the Executioner novels, characterization within series fiction, and some of his other work. Check his website for articles, links, and more – including a dramatic reading of his Western zombie short story Dead Man’s Hand.
