The String Rider
Sci-fi author John Espie’s time travel novel is available on Amazon in both ebook and paperback format. Here’s a brief synopsis:
Trevor jumps 20 years forward to steal lotto numbers for his dream girl Rubie. Except, in this future, Rubie has been murdered… and Trevor instantly adores the daughter he’s raising with another woman. Never mind his missing thumb or the fact that he drives a minivan… with eyelashes. So, upon his return, Trevor must ask: how can he save Rubie? And does saving her mean his daughter won’t be born, or can he—should he—have both?

Science has advanced, and we can now colonize other planets. Do you (1) sign up to be a colonist OR (2) remain on Earth?
I’ll stay on Earth because only the rich will be able to afford to colonize. After sitting back to watch the prices plummet on their Earth-based vacation homes, I’ll swoop in on a modest seaside villa for a killer deal and then proceed to live the life of Gatsby… minus the heartbreak and getting shot to death.
Wow! Interesting perspective!
Your novel brought you fame and fortune. Do you spend approximately $2 million on (1) an expensive car OR (2) a Hollywood-style RV?
Easy– Hollywood RV with a tricked out Jeep in tow. My family currently has an aging RV trailer for vacationing, and my dream is to someday own a fancy motorhome that simply requires me to push a button, and it automatically levels and sets itself up. Ahhh… glamping like a richie…
Living the rich life in style!
Are you (1) a morning person OR (2) a night owl?
If you ask my family, they would insist that I’m a morning person because I get up at 5 am, hours before everybody else. In fact, I despise waking up that early, but it’s the only way I can get an hour or two of quiet time to work without interruption.
Do you write (1) when the mood takes you OR (2) at a set time?
Well… kind of somewhere in the middle. I write whenever the opportunity presents itself. If my wife unexpectedly takes the kids out of the house for a couple of hours, then y’know what? The mood to write just struck me!
(1) Can you name just one favorite novel OR (2) you love too many to just pick one?
I couldn’t pick just one novel, because I appreciate that everyone has a different style to offer. A sampling of my favorite authors includes John Steinbeck, Kurt Vonnegut, Dr. Seuss, and who knows how many more. Limiting myself to one is unthinkable!
Lover of many novels!
Thanks for being interviewed, John!
