Special Guest: Mario Brown

This week I am glad to have Mario Brown the author of Bushido: A War of Gods as my special guest.
Tell us a little about yourself:
I would describe myself as a story teller. I write comic books, songs, poems and novels. Anything to get a story across. I moved around when I was young because my father was in the military. He retired and started working for the government and that’s how we ended up moving to Washington. I graduated from Central Kitsap and attended UNLV, where I got a BA in Psychology. I use a great deal of my psychology training in the characters of Bushido
What was you inspiration for Bushido: A War of Gods?
When I was younger I saw a movie Stargate. I had been reading ancient astronaut theory books like Chariots of the Gods. I was hoping that Stargate would have some deep cosmic mean to it. As it turns out it was Rambo in space.I decided that the only way I would see an ancient astronaut story would be if I wrote it. The story grew from there.
Do you find your own morals coming thought your writing either intentionally or unintentionally?
Of course! Bushido is a morality play. Bushido means “the way of the warrior” and is a code of honor for the Samurai of feudal Japan. It is, in and of itself, a moral code. I add my own take on spirituality and hopefully show the universality of human beliefs.
Who are some of your favorite authors?
I like Anne Rice, I like Timothy Zahn. I don’t read things based on the author, though. I do like the books “Malice” and “Havoc” by Chris Wooding. I liked the world he created in “Malice.”
 What book are you reading now?
Right now, on my nightstand is the book “The 100 Greatest Jews of All Time.” I usually read non-fiction. When I read fiction, I actually like murder mysteries best. I would like to add a bit of mystery to my stories.
Thanks Mario!
