Harold Michael Harvey – Author Interview

Paper Puzzle by Harold Michael HarveyWhat is your most recent book? Tell us a bit about it.

My most recent work is my first, Paper Puzzle. It is a murder/mystery set in my home town of Macon, Georgia and seeks through the eyes of two newspaper journalists, to answer an age old question: How does one overcome social mores in a modern society.

Tell us something about yourself.

I am an awarding winning journalist and an award winning trial lawyer. I no longer practice law and am now working full time at the writer’s trade.

What inspired you to write this book?

The decision to write this novel grew out of an experience I had at age five years, when my grandmother introduced me to a fellow by the name of Jim Crow. It set me on a path to understand why people were hindered by artificial barriers such as skin color. The two protagonist in Paper Puzzle will have to learn how to deal with people from different cultural backgrounds before they can solve the Paper Puzzle and a string of crime dating back several decades.

What is the best advice you could give other writers about writing or publishing?

The best advice I can give to other writers is to write every single day, at the same time and same location. When it comes to publishing, read every thing you can get your hands and eyes on about traditional publishing houses and self-publishing houses.
