Ain’t nothing better for a wayward nipple
Rahki World author Rennie St. James invited me to guest blog WRITING REALISTIC HAND-TO-HAND COMBAT SCENES and I did.
I did I did I did!
Can’t tell you how many versions I came up with.
No, actually I can because I revision everything – four.
Some of those early versions…a beautiful demonstration of not knowing what to write about. There were lots of ways to go at it. Do I write about my many years teaching hand-to-hand mixmaster beef loin braising techniques at the Academie du HaHa in Paranormal, France?
Probably too graphic for most readers. No.
Instead I went with how to write a combat scene such that the reader believes it.
Hope it worked.
Let Rennie and me know, okay?
How can two such sweet, endearing people write world threatening fiction (and make it look easy)?
Welcome one and all to another Northern Lights Books’ author interview
plunge. Today’s guests are an enigma.
Not really, they write about enigmas. Specifically, the Enigma TechnoThriller series (there are nine books in the series as we publish this interview in early July 2018).
Known as Breakfield and Burkey, Charles Breakfield and Rox Burkey have known each other professionally and as friends for mumbledy-mumbledy years. About mumbledy years ago they realized both enjoyed writing beyond their work-a-day requirements and decided to collaborate on things they knew from work. Rox specializes in corporate communications and Charles specializes in security, communications technology and anything with bits and bytes. Their work takes them across the globe and involves them in high level discussions most of us wouldn’t understand. Fortunately, they remove the unnecessary technospeak from their novels and leave in the thriller parts. Good stuff, that!

You won’t believe the cast! Brad Pitt isn’t Stickman! Harrison Ford isn’t Maple!
