Hello. Thank you for visiting my blog today. I'm Rebecca Scarberry (Scarberryfields on Twitter). The author I have interviewed next is Christopher Wager (chriswager on Twitter). I asked Chris some questions he has never been asked in any other interview. I'm certain you will enjoy learning more about him. He is very talented and successful.

Scarberryfields: Can you tell us a little about your nationality?
Chris: My family has roots in what used to be the Communist Chec Republic, which is in the democratic Czechoslovakia.
Scarberryfields: When you finished your debut novel, did you miss the characters?
Chris: Yes, I made mention to this in the novel preface. Five years is a long time to spend with a group of people. A second book would be like revisiting old friends, no family.
Scarberryfields: While writing, if you need help with punctuation, grammar, etc., where do you turn?
Chris: This would have to be my wife, Karen, one of the smartest people I know. Her ability to spell anything is super natural.
Scarberryfields: With the number of hours spent writing, do family members support you or complain about the time spent away from them?
Chris: Writing the novel became a real family project, I love my family for all their support and encouragement.
Scarberryfields: Does writing benefit you in any way and if so, how?
Chris: Yes, writing is a much needed creative outlet for me, and an escape into a world I have never been until I write it.
Scarberryfields: When you’re writing, do you shut-off all social networks?
Chris: Yes, I become completely emerged in my writing, then the story takes on a life of its own. I am merely the vessel to the outside world.
Scarberryfields: Did you use any family members as Beta readers for your debut novel?
Chris: Yes, my son’s favorite thing to do is to look for plot holes in my writing.
Scarberryfields: What do you do when you aren’t writing? Do you have any hobbies or a job?
Chris: I play the violin and have many interests including reading, my whole family are big readers.
Scarberryfields: What is the last book called that you completed and published?
Chris: It was a how-to entitled 101 Helpful Painting Hints
Scarberryfields: Where can readers go to find your book(s)?
Chris:   My titles can be found at Barnes & Noble, and other book carrying retail sites around the net. It’s a little strange to see your title in Chinese. My most recent release is Stow Away.
