Interview with Novelist J.D. Brayton (THE LIGHT HORSE)

1. What is your novel about?

The Light Horse is the story of two men who join forces to capture one of the most dreaded murderers in history; one man driven by sworn duty, and the other man by vengeance; a psychological thriller based on documented fact, written after years of research into this compelling and nearly unbelievable chapter in the true history of 19th century British occupied India.

2. What genres would you say this story is in?

Historical Fiction

3. How would you describe this story in two words?

Uniquely compelling

4. What movie have you seen the most in your life?

The one in my head.

5. What is your favorite song? (Or, what song have you listened to the most times in your life?)

If you can narrow it down to one song, you aren’t listening to enough music.

6. Do you have an all-time favorite novel?

If you can narrow it down to one novel, you aren’t reading enough.

7. What motivated you to write this story?

Death and renewal.

8. If you could have dinner with one person (dead or alive), who would that be?

My Mother, who would (with love) bust my chops for waiting so long to write it all down properly.

9. Apart from writing, what else are you passionate about?

Everything except polka music, gawd-awful disco and sauerkraut

10. What influenced you to enter your story to get performed?

Simply to hear my words performed by a pro who would help me to know if I’m doing my job successfully.

11. Any advice or tips you’d like to pass on to other writers?

Yes. Stop circling around your quarry. Stop equivocating. Sit your butt down and get to it. That story isn’t going to write itself.
