I’ve co-authored three books with fellow writers Nathan Palmer and Jordan Benoit. I’ve also written five short stories in the anthology, The Endlands. I’m currently working on more stories for the second volume, as well. I also have two new novels I’m almost finished with, so needless to say, I’ve been busy.
How do you come up with the names of characters for your books?
Different ways. I wrote a short story called ‘The Hour of the Time’. The main character’s name is Charlie, named after my cat. I actually hate cats, but Charlie is different. The name seemed to fit the character in the story, kinda like my cat, actually. Charlie has an obsessive type personality, and his quirks were something that I needed to write about. Other times my characters are named after someone I know or run across, and often a name just pops in my head and I go for it.
What are you currently working on?
I’m currently working on two novels. A horror novel set in the wild west and a futuristic dystopian novel.
Can you explain where one can purchase your books and find more information about you?
My books are available at all major online retailers. Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Sony, etc. They are available in both trade paperback and ebook. For more information about me visit: www.VincentHobbes.com
