What is the title of your book? Exit Strategy
What is your book about? Exit Strategy is the story of Jonas, a man suffering from multiple personality disorder, who chooses to run from the law when accused of a murder he believes he didn’t commit, a journey that takes him from Massachusetts to Newfoundland, to Greenland, and finally to the Shetland Islands. Under the torments of Gabe and Izzy, two young passengers he took on board his boat, Jonas begins to unravel and discovers some unsettling, buried truths about himself and his past. And he just wants out.
Why did you decide to write it? I was looking for a diversion from the medieval fantasy realm I’d been involved with for so many years. Exit Strategy started out as a far
different story when I first conceived the idea, but once the characters of Gabe
and Izzy came to life, the story took a turn to the left and blossomed.
How did you get your book published? I self-publish through Outskirts Press.
What types of readers will be interested in your book? This is definitely an adult novel, and will probably appeal to most anyone who enjoys digging into the shadier side of human nature.

It also incorporates some dark fantasy, yet all is subjective as to what might be true and what might simply be the invention of Jonas Dumar’s fractured
Have you published any other books? Do you plan to publish more? In 2012, I published my first novel, Hope Flies on Broken Wings, a tragic love story set on the edge of medieval fantasy. I am currently working on its much-requested sequel.
I am also writing a collection of macabre short stories. I tend not to be a slave to genre.
I write what inspires me.
Caught in a web of sex, lies, and murder, Jonas Dumar wants out, and finds himself
running for his life in a journey of desperation. But are Gabe and Izzy, who seem hell-bent on driving him insane, assassins, angels, or something else altogether? Take a wild voyage across the North
Atlantic with a man in possession of too many secrets as Jonas soon comes to
learn that a man really can learn more about himself than he ever wants to
