This suspenseful sequel to “One More Last Dance” follows Peck Finch’s search for his mother after leaving home at the age of nine, and the struggles of his friend Gabe, who is simultaneously facing a second-degree murder charge. Set within the rich and storied culture of Louisiana, this tale of self-discovery explores important questions about the meaning of love, friendship, family and more.

“Mamma’s Moon” has received early praise for its layered storytelling with BlueInk Reviews calling Antil’s newest work “a lovely story about the strong bonds of friendship that often supplant family ties.”

Interview with Author Jerome Mark Antil

As a writer, what would you choose as your mascot/avatar/spirit animal?

I feed birds…in front of my studio.

How many hours a day do you put into your writing?

7 hours daily -7 days a week.

Do you read your book reviews? If yes, do they affect what you write in the future?

Yes and yes, I do learn from some if I can tell they read the book.

Do you leave hidden messages in your books that only a few people will find?

No, other than using friend’s names as characters.

Can you tell us a little bit about the characters in Mamma’s Moon?

Gabe, an aging romantic, retired army captain  - a black man – who loves to jazz dance. Sasha and Lily Cup – two of the most successful women in New Orleans – about 38-39 – who ‘slut up’ a few nights a month in their Chanel’s and go jazz dancing at a dive club on Frenchman’s Street. Peck, the Cajun French Forrest Gump and Millie, his love.

Can you tell us a little bit about your next books or what you have planned for the future?

I’m writing a trilogy – retelling stories about growing up in the shadows of WWII.

Do you allow yourself a certain number of hours to write or do you write as long as the words come?

I write seven hours a day – typically a couple thousand words a day.

What inspires you to write?

Telling stories – people can read after I die and can’t tell them.

Would you rather

Read fiction or non-fiction?

Read series or stand-alone?
Hmmm.  Either.

Read Science fiction or horror?

Read Stephen King or Dean Koontz
Steinbeck – but I’ve been compared to King – so King.

Read the book or watch the movie?
Movie and then book.

Read an ebook or paperback?

Be trapped alone for one month in a library with no computer or a room with a computer and Wi-Fi only?
Computer and wifi – then I have my library too.

Do a cross-country book store tour or blog tour online?
I am now.
