Breaking the writers-grew up-writing stereotype, Clint has written and published his début novel The Cause and has given me the opportunity to quiz him all about it.

Find copies of The Cause at the following websites;

I’ve always been fascinated by clouds, creatures of flight and, of course, the idea of a musically-powered flying ship. It did take quite a few years to write “Fantasy Flight”, for I worked on it in between part-time jobs and studies–but it’s been a fun ride! Continue reading
