Today we sit down for a chat with author Jeffrey James Higgins who writes in multiple mystery genres, including thriller, action-adventure, suspense, medical, and military. Learn more about him and his books at his website.
When did you realize you wanted to write novels?
I wrote stories when I was six years old—silly stories about taking animals on adventures—and I drew my cover art with crayons. I would sneak out of bed at night and write stories in a notebook. I have always identified as an author, and I can’t remember a time when I didn’t plan to write books.
How long did it take you to realize your dream of publication?
I retired as a supervisory special agent in 2017 and started writing full time. Since then, I’ve written one nonfiction manuscript and six novels. Black Rose Writing will launch my debut on May 20 and my second novel on August 26. The other five manuscripts are in the editing or submission process. I have also published six creative nonfiction pieces, two short stories, fourteen essays, and one poem. It has taken me just over four years for my debut to hit the market, but my dream has been fifty years in the making.
