Welcome all. Today I’m very lucky to be interviewing Grein Murray author of His Fallen Angel. Hi Greg, thank you for agreeing to this interview. Tell us a little about yourself and your background?
So, what have you written? The Joshua series, I Have You (which is a spin off that follows two characters from the Joshua books, Capturing Oliver and His Fallen Angel
How much research do you do? Even before I became a writer, I was interested in Angels. I have read a lot of articles and books that spoke of angels even before Christianity. My favorite, Archangel Michael makes an appearance in my book. If a topic interest me, I research it thoroughly.
Why do you write? I love to daydream and certain places or people can trigger a story or character in my mind. I love shaping characters and telling their stories to my readers.
Where do you see publishing going in the future? I sadly think that paper books will be a thing of the past which is a shame. Technology is taking over in so many areas.
What advice would you give to aspiring writers? If you have a story in your head, write it out. I never thought I’d be an author and here I am talking about my 6th book. You don’t know if you don’t try, so go for it!
For your own reading, do you prefer ebooks or traditional paper/hard back books? Paper/hard cover books. It probably sounds crazy, but I love the feel and smell of real books. If I read an ebook I really enjoy, I usually end up buying it on paperback if its’ available.
How do you think you’ve evolved creatively? I’ve learned quite a bit since my first book. I think I’ve gotten better at writing about what the characters are feeling. I like to form a picture in my reader’s minds of what I’m seeing and I hope I accomplish that.

AUTHOR: Grein Murray
COVER ARTIST: Kellie Dennis
LENGTH: 156 Pages
RELEASE DATE: April 1, 2016
New Angels are created to protect mankind on Earth but the Fallen are making this task quite difficult. New Angel, Alexander, is assigned to a rapidly declining area to find out what the Fallen are up to—only he lands in the clutches of a beautiful, yet powerful, Fallen Angel. As help comes from an unlikely ally, Alexander isn’t sure if he should trust Roman or not—but what choice does he have?
I made sure that I ate my ice cream as seductively as I could until it was gone. Roman tossed the rest of his cone into some nearby bushes. “Why’d you….” I didn’t finish. I was dragged off the trail and stopped when Roman abruptly came to a halt. He looked down at me with a playful grin. There, in front of me, was a cropping of fallen trees. Roman pushed me toward them, then he started removing my pants and hoodie.
When I'm not writing I like going to concerts. Music is a big part of my life, I've played bass guitar since I was a teen. I love nature and enjoy hiking and working with causes that help protect our planet and wild animals.
I have loved books all of my life and have always enjoyed escaping the ordinary world by getting lost in a good book. I read a lot of different genres of books but have fallen in love with MM. I support the gay community and hope one day people will see that love is love and that it is a beautiful thing no matter your gender, race or religion.
I am an avid animal lover and have quite a collection of pets in my home. I love ancient history and have studied Alexander the Great as well as Egypt and it's pharaohs. I also am very interested in angels and have researched them and will put that to use in future books.
I hope that my readers continue to fall in love with my characters and that my stories touch their lives and bring them happiness.
