When life gives you lemons, turn them into something resembling lemonade. [Interview with Author Gabriel Wright]

Indie authors have held a special place in my heart for as long as I can remember. As an indie myself, I know what it takes to write, edit, publish, and market a book all on one’s own. It’s hard – but it’s also incredibly rewarding.

The author I’m talking about today knows exactly what that’s like.

Welcome, Gabe! Sell yourself to us.

Gabriel Wright was born, and raised in NYC.  Originally from the borough of the Bronx, Gabriel attended college at the City University of New York (CUNY). Afterwards, he spent 20 years in a career as an IT Professional.  Gabe admits it wasn’t exactly his dream job but he liked the work enough that he would’ve happily toiled away at it until mandatory (or forced) retirement.

Gabriel’s true dream job was being a writer.  It was always in the back of his mind, but it was always something that he thought he’d get around to eventually. Then a not so funny thing happened in Gabe’s IT career – he was laid off.  Although, sadly, it wasn’t the first time, this time he took it as a sign that eventually had finally come.  Gabriel began to write and ultimately producing his first novel, Cry for the Mercenary.

Gabriel Wright still lives in NYC with his family.  Along with writing, he’s also trying to make a success of his family-owned bagel shop in Harlem.

What is your book about?

He was all they had . . .

In the face of a monster of a man, they were powerless. They couldn’t run, they couldn’t hide, they couldn’t fight. Every aspect of their lives were under his control. It was obedience or oblivion. When that monster of a man went down into a death spiral, he expected them to follow.

To break free they needed an outsider, a stranger, a mercenary. They found him.

With all his troubles, and all his flaws, they found him. With all his baggage, and even his reluctance, they cried for him. It wasn’t only a question of would he do it, but could he. It wasn’t only a matter of saving them, but of saving himself.
