Get to Know Author Tim Kizer

Let's give a warm welcome to Tim Kizer, author of Intoxication. Please visit his website, and come back and tell us what you thought of it.



1. Please tell readers about your current book.
“Intoxication” is a suspense thriller inspired by real events. It tells a story of a young psychopathic woman suspecting that someone at work is trying to poison her. Her paranoia drives her insane, and she starts wreaking havoc in an effort to expose the evildoer. And even though her suspicions could be just the fruit of her imagination, the damage she does is very real and devastating. If you are a fan of suspense, this book is for you! You will never guess the ending.
It is available at Amazon kindle store at http://www.amazon.com/dp/B004V49L24 for only $0.99. (USD)



2. Who or what inspires your writing?
My inspiration mainly comes from my desire to share a great story with public at large. Whenever a promising idea comes to me, I am eager to sit down and start writing. Another source of inspiration is my intent to achieve as much as the great Stephen King, whom I have admired since the age of 15.



3. When did you know you would be a writer?
I knew it after reading “The Shining” by Stephen King. I wanted to scare the world the way this great author did.



4. How long did it take you to write your first novel?
It took me two months to write the first novel. It turned out quite boring. I am planning to rewrite it completely as the core idea is intriguing and fresh, in my humble opinion.



5. What is the hardest part of writing for you?
The hardest part is writing the conclusion of a novel. You don’t want it to appear rushed, you don’t want to leave too many loose ends, and you don’t want it to seem like it were pulled out of your rear. There are many books that have an excellent, nail-biting beginning and a mediocre ending that spoils the whole reading experience.



6. Do you have any writing rituals?
The only ritual I can think of is my daily walk during which I analyze scenes I wrote or plan to write.



7. Have you written anything else?
I’ve written several suspense and horror novels as well as a dozen short stories. My new horror novel “Judgment Days” is coming out this Fall. It is only a working title, which may change if I think of something more poetic.



8. Any advice to aspiring writers?
If you are serious about writing, you should write books that appeal to the masses and not try to change people's literary tastes, unless you are happy with selling two copies a year. This advice may seem obvious, but it deserves to be repeated again and again.



9. Who are your favorite Authors?
As I mentioned before, I love Stephen King. He is my number one writer. My number two is Dean Koontz, who, by the way, lives in Southern California, not too from my place.



10. What are your favorite books, or which book has impacted you the most?
As you noticed, I am a huge fan of Stephen King, so it is no surprise that many of his major novels are my favorite books. I especially love “It,” “Misery,” and ”The Shining.” These books have had a great impact on my writing, and I still reread them from time to time.
I also adore “The Good Soldier Švejk” by Czech writer Jaroslav Hašek. It is an amazing book; I think I’ve read it at least five times. If there is one thing you will take away from this interview, let it be “The Good Soldier Švejk.” The humor in this book is priceless; you will laugh yourself silly, I promise.



11. What are you currently reading?
I am trying to finish “Relentless” by Dean Koontz.



12. How do readers find out more about you?
To find out more about me and my books, please visit http://www.horror-suspense.com
This website has sample chapters, news, kindle store links to my works, and links to other authors’ websites. And right now, it has the first pages of my upcoming horror novel “Judgment Days.”



Should you use torture to extract a confession from a coworker trying to poison you? Do you kill those who dismiss your fears and believe you are paranoid? What do you do if you start questioning your own suspicions--and sanity--as you take the law into your hands?
In this disturbing tale of derangement, a young psychopathic woman is slipping into madness as she fights an enemy that may exist only in her imagination. She has to resort to desperate measures when she realizes that a gun, security cameras in her apartment, and constant vigilance will not be enough to survive. It is hard to find a black cat in a dark room, especially if the cat is not there, but Leslie, with her resolve fueled by paranoia, is hell-bent on finding and slaughtering it.

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
Many experts agree that one of the best ways to maintain the health of the brain is to keep it active, just as you would with your muscles to keep them strong. There are also a number of nutrients that are very important to maintaining a healthy brain and preventing its decline.
