My mother called me a thrill seeker as a kid. That continued to be a fair assessment throughout my life, but with unforeseen consequences. For 57 years I managed to cheat death as I endured accidents such as a head-on car collision that catapulted me through two windshields or hitting a telephone pole at 110 MPH on a motorcycle, to name just a couple. But none of these true-life experiences compared to what came after my cancer diagnosis. In this book I use words to paint you alongside as I detail all my incredible life challenges and experiences. Ride along the emotional roller coaster that includes 17 surgeries and the domino effect of events that resulted. After the cancer diagnosis, an internal fight also ensued. It was the mental battle against the shadowy figures on my shoulders who constantly whispered morbid thoughts.

Interview with Perry Muse

    What is your schedule like when you’re writing a book?

    I like to write first thing in the morning. It is quiet and I am fresh.

    Did you ever consider writing under a pseudonym?

    No. I like people knowing that it is me writing.

    Have you ever gotten reader’s block?

    Not really. I have been fortunate to always have ideas.

    Does your family support your career as a writer?

    My family has been very supportive. I often send them teasers to get their feedback.

    How many hours a day do you write?

    Once I start it is hard to stop. I would say 3 hours on average.

    If you could invite any three people for dinner, whom would you invite?

    Stephen King, Dean Koontz, Michael Jordan

    Would you share something about yourself that your readers don’t know (yet)?

    I am working on a series of children’s books. I have the characters and the basic writing complete. I also have the illustrations.

    Do you try more to be original or to deliver to readers what they want?

    I tend to be original. It is easier to write if I am not trying to be anything else.

    How do you celebrate when you finish your book?

    Dinner with the family to make the announcement.

    If you could be mentored by a famous author, who would it be?

    Stephen King. I love his writing.
