Interview with Giorgos Kazoulis, author of Breaking Good
A normal boy, a normal life. So not special by the world’s standards.
Eighteen years old Stavros begins questioning every single value and what begins as a quest for success and power soon becomes an enormous inner struggle that defines him.
The boy begins his mental journey and finds happiness, sorrow, peace, fear and danger. Real, physical danger…
Will the boy win against his inner demons? Or will he decide that his inner demons are in fact his guardian angels and his only chance to a better, safer life? What would be the cost of such a victory?
One thing is for sure – Breaking Good is damn hard to do.
What genre is this?
In that case, tell us about this main character.
Is he a smart and great man, or a simple minded fool as the first chapter declares?
Is he based on a real person too?
Tell us about yourself.
You’ve got to give us more than that.
Erm… OK. And if we wanted to learn more?
By now it should be entirely obvious that I am using a pseudonym, or am antisocial. Anyway, that’s me and my Facebook page and I hope it’s more active by the time this interview has gone live.
Maybe we can discover you through your books. Have you written any others?
How easily do new storylines come to you? If we give you four random words – Man, Woman, Airport, Darkness – can you give us a brief storyline?
You never stop joking, do you?
A woman, scared, is running on the runway chasing a plane that is taking off. The plane, naturally, takes off, ignoring the woman. She falls to her knees as a team of airport security comes and collects her. The woman whispers something in the darkness but they can’t hear it. No one knows why she did all that.
All they learn fifteen minutes later is that the plane has fallen. Everybody has the crazy idea that the woman and the crash could be related but no one really believes it.
Except a black male with a short beard who has been looking at her for about an hour. The woman sees him. And now she really is scared…
Wow, that’s really good.
