Here at Olympia we love hearing from our authors, getting an insight into their lives in writing and asking them what their advice would be to future authors. This week we had the pleasure of interviewing Daniel Walsh about his book!





Where did you get the idea of the carefree young boy in your novel?  


I wish I could point to a specific event or person and say my idea came from it or them. My only response is that one day the idea or concept of the book suddenly appeared in my head. I had no recourse but to write it down.




The book centres around sharing and being considerate, was it important to you to include a moral of the story?


Without question. To me, sharing and consideration are two of life’s most vital ingredients, especially if folks of all persuasions are to co-exist in anything even close to resembling harmonious. 





This is your second book with us now, what do you think you have learnt since publishing your first book?  


Simply put: Olympia Publishers has a great deal of great team of professionals and caring folks. Their cooperation and support have reinforced the hope that there are still folks “out there” who care deeply about the written word. I will always be most grateful to them.  




If you could get any advice to aspiring authors what would it be?


Write. And then write some more. Writers write. Many years ago I remember an interview the late comedian George Burns gave in which he said being a comedian was something he was driven to do. Becoming famous was nice, but even if fame had never come his way, telling jokes is what he had to do. So, to other writers, my advice is to write and focus on the results later.  




Are you planning on writing any more books?


Always. Even now there are multiple ideas in way head trying to vie for a seat next to the driver. Hopefully they will all have their turn.
