M.P. McVey is a fantasy author with a difference. Not content with the established sword and sorcery or urban genres, he strikes out on his own to give us something truly original and fantastic. His debut novel is Plod on, Sleepless Giant which is about the elephant which turns our world and the tale of his enlightenment.
M.P. has built on his life-long love of reading and ignited a passion for writing.
I was so excited when M.P. and I got together to discuss his thoughts in an interview for the Fantasy Sci-Fi Network, which you can check out here.
* M.P. talks about a middle school teacher who inspired him to write
* He discusses about the meaning behind his book's synopsis
* His fave scene is the one with the greatest emotional connection
* Sometimes listening to the same song over and over again helps him to write. Can you guess which song it is?
* M.P. talks about his next project, which is to be a sci-fi satire. (Great concept)
* I'm really impressed with his fave author, who is a role model for me as well
* His 'mostly grey' cat has a clever name

At the center of earth exists Temelephas. Created as an insensitive automaton, he is chained to his wooden wheel, ever turning our world. Never to feel, never to remember ... he was made to only walk.
Earth is ravaged by a storm the likes of which humanity's meteorologists have never seen, leaving nothing but questions. Cities are left in rubble and people like Edward and Lily begin to put their lives back together, all while afraid of the storm's possible resurgence.
Destruction lays in wait for Earth and its inhabitants, and there is nothing they can do. It is left to a sole Watcher--those that guard over all in creation, sent on a fool's errand to save the earth, humanity, and most likely the universe. "Walk, walk, walk, through the darkness he would stomp; his feet pounding his life into the earth."
