THE WRITING PART
Q. Thank you for agreeing to this interview. Briefly, about yourself?
My name is Andrew Joyce and I write books for a living. I live on a boat in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, with my dog, Danny.
Q. What genre is/are your book(s)?
Historical Fiction and Action/Adventure
Q. What draws you to this genre?
I really don’t know. I come across a subject that interests me, I research that subject, I come up with a story to encompass that subject, and then it’s off to the races, so to speak.
Q. Briefly, what led up to last/latest book? Also, Please describe what the story/book is about in one sentence.
I read a short article about “the largest mass execution in the history of the United States.” That intrigued me. As I researched it, one thing led to another and the next thing I knew, I was writing about eighty-five years of American history.
Yellow Hair documents the injustices done to the Sioux Nation from their first treaty with the United States in 1805 through Wounded Knee in 1890.
Q. What was the time frame for writing your last book?
Six years. I did one year of research for Yellow Hair, and spent eight months writing it. I then put it away and wrote other books. But during that time, I’d pull it out and work on it (editing, rewriting, etc.).
