Today I am interviewing Timothy C. Ward, author of the new sci-fi novel, Scavenger: A.I., second book of the Sand Divers series.
I also have the honor of revealing the Scavenger: A.I. cover on my blog, and Timothy has been gracious enough to provide one (1) ebook copy of Scavenger: Evolution to every commenter(!), andpossibly two (2) more copies of his books to my readers, along with detail for other ways that you would win a copy!

DJ: Hey Tim! Thanks for stopping by to do another interview!
For readers who aren’t familiar with you, could you tell us a little about yourself?
Timothy C. Ward: I’m a husband and soon to be father of two. My first novel, Scavenger: Evolution was inspired by how a couple might drift apart after the death of their newborn. I write about family love and the weaknesses that make us doubt our ability to accomplish our dreams, often in apocalypses and with monsters of some kind, human or otherwise.
I studied creative writing for a semester in Sippy Downs, Australia (read: I went to the beach a lot, embarrassed myself just as much, got lost and went broke in New Zealand, snowboarded there before a cloud forced the end of the day, made friends that made me cry to leave, and probably only actually wrote for five days the whole time). I’ve matured since then, but I’m so glad I lived in that six months, even if I did so as an immature twenty year old. I’m thirty three now, I’ve accomplished the one million words challenge, and am planning to publish two books this summer.
I was also the executive producer of Adventures in Scifi Publishing for a year and a half and was nominated for a Hugo for Best Fancast last year.
I am a Christian, too, though that could mean so much to so many, let’s just say I love you and yet may also write stories that go places which make some uncomfortable. My stories fit in a niche between what Christians might think is too secular and where everyone else thinks is on the cleaner side of dark fiction.Continue reading →
