Interview with R. J. Davies Mornix

R. J. Davies Mornix is a writer with as much moxie as her character Dice Maddox.Smart and directed. Maybe it’s because their last names both begin with M. I mean really… consider all the Marvelous, Moxiful, M words …
Maybe I should change my name to Ming?
Her marketing smarts and preparedness make me gasp (and masp) in admiration. She’s pursing the art of writing like it’s a business, with identifiable goals, tasks and targets.
Wait … could it be  that it is…

Today we’re discussing her MADDOX FILES SERIES
Maddox Files: Back To Business            Dice Maddox, a private investigator in Toronto, is pursuing her first case back after a four year hiatus … but could her first case back be her last…

Me: When did the idea come to you?
M: I wanted to do a project that could test out the self-publishing industry. I wanted the main character to be a young woman. And I wanted it to be different … I have always love Science Fiction since I was young and when I was in my teens I devoured P.I. T.V. shows and books. It seemed to be a natural fit to blend the two together and that’s where I came up with the idea for Maddox Files: Back to Business
Me: How many books are in the series?
M: Right now I am at 7 books. 2-4 are done, Book 5 I am working on and books 6-7 are outlined.
Me: What’s your favorite part of writing?
M: I think it’s the process of sitting down at a blank screen or page and have words strung together that create this magic. Bringing characters to life and sharing their stories with others.
Me: Who are your influences?
M: There are too many to mention. I love Science Fiction and will read almost anything in that genre. If I had to pick one person it would be Stephen King … my first book in my first series called Quin’s Quest took almost 20 years to write because I fell into the trap of editing and re-writing as I was writing the first draft. After hearing Stephen King talk about writing and that the first draft is supposed to be crap it’s you telling yourself the story. The editing and rewriting is for your audience. After hearing that, it took only 23 days, starting over from the beginning, to complete my first draft of that book.
A 26-year-old Dice Maddox living in Toronto, Ontario struggles with her failing love life and a career she doesn’t love, decides to get back into a business she was once good at. Ryan Winters her first client was a confirmed bachelor until he had a small car accident, a woman named Lily Winters claims to have been married to him for 6 months. Digging deeper into Lily Winters, Dice soon discovers that she isn’t who she says she is- but wait -what is she? A demon? An alien? Will Dice Maddox’s first case back be her last?
Me: I wish you M – author, demon, alien or detective, the best of luck in pursuing and sharing your dream. Good luck M!
