Allirea’s Realm, Coffee and Conversation with Jonathan Doyle

Give me a synopsis that will make me move your book to “next” on my Kindle. I stutter, so there are too many to count! A very dangerous thing, but he didn’t seem to mind my questions.   For their own reasons, they go on a journey from LA to Mexico, which takes them both out of their comfort zones, and forces them to face their demons. Is this your first book? No, when something sucks, it sucks. I watch every Lakers game. I love the Lakers. Where did you come up with the Book Title? My dog Sam was my everything. When I was six or seven years old, I told my mom that I was going to be the President of the United States. Cold. I was born old. Who is your real life hero? Ohhhhh, I am intrigued, maybe we will need to do a whole new interview to pursue this subject. And really, I just like the way it sounds. I’ve been many times. Why? A year, I think. I know I got the tiger completely wrong, they don’t even live there. Would you ever revisit any of your other novels? Don’t ever touch the face! What will it be about? White tee shirts and cargo shorts. To make my dog live forever.   You can only pick ONE, no cheating? And a dreamer. How long did it take you to write The Last Line of a Goat Song? Do you play? No! No, I don’t like the way it tastes. My next book is about my childhood dog Sam, and will probably be done in about a year. What do you do for leisure or entertainment? I wrote something eloquent, but as usual I stuttered my way through it. He was so smart, and I think it’s really cool when somebody changes the world. Have you ever been banned from a public place? So I’d say I was determined. Due to circumstances beyond my control, I have not read your book The Last Line of a Goat Song. They have a community there I just fell in love with. They have the best food, and I’m a big sports guy, and one of my favorite times in my life was when I visited my friend, Em, and we watched a Chicago Cubs game together. This is my ninth novel, but I’ve never released any of the other ones. Sam saved me in so many ways. Yeah, I’ve played my whole life, not lately because I’ve been writing books, but I played on all of my school teams. Literary Fiction / Action-Adventure
What is your favorite United States city? What’s the craziest thing you’ve ever done for someone? I don’t want to go into it, only she knows why. I think forgiveness is the core of humanity. Wine. It’s been really hard since he’s been gone, but I’m a loyal guy. I love all of the Wild Thorn Publishing team to death. I believe that working with a team is better than going it alone. I don’t like anybody near my face. This book, The Last Line of a Goat Song. Why? Have you ever met Imogen Rose? Are you a good dresser? Goat Song is the only one that I like. I’m working on writing the TV stuff too, so yeah, hopefully about a year. I do have to say, it is a catchy title. Why did you decide to publish with an independent publisher rather than self-publish? A native of Phoenix AZ, Jonathan grew up in Southern California and is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University with a degree in Psychology, but still can’t overcome his fear of freeway overpasses. I read that term somewhere and just fell in love with it. Nope, never been banned. No grudges. How would your friends describe you, in one word? A trip to New Orleans for my dear friend Em. So when my friends say I’m cold, I’m really not, I’m just working! I love red wine. What were you like as a child? Thank you so much, Jonathan. When can we expect your next book? What genre is your book? What has been your most embarrassing moment? No, never. He was a black cocker spaniel.   Not in person, but I would love to one day! Hmmmmmmm….Em again, I think I might need to get her number to see if she would like to do an interview. When I was 8 years old. I’m the worst dresser of all time. What were your childhood dreams? I don’t have a mean bone in my body, but sometimes I’ll say things like “shut up”, which I know is wrong, but I’m so sorry, I’m actually just thinking of some new idea. It was embarrassing, but I did win. I love dogs. One of my friends always tells me, “You can’t wear cargo shorts!” But it’s always warm here in LA… so why not? The most important question of the interview, are you a coffee drinker? Tell me the ONE character in your book that is the most like you. If you had a warning label, what would yours say? Ha-ha, and a bottle of red! What would be your best achievement to date? And I always wear the same cargo shorts. When I heard that Wild Thorn Publishing signed a new author, Jonathan Doyle, I jumped at the chance to interview him. I love Chicago. He was flawed but he was a true genius. Over a cup of coffee/tea, we discussed anything that popped into my head (that was G-rated). I was really concerned with Africa, and I wrote a story about this little girl and a tiger who sort of became friends. I think people who write, we spend so much of our time in our heads, being distracted in our own inside worlds. Total cliché, but Jefferson. I remember when I was in fourth grade I decided to run for VP, and I had to read a speech. I do drink tea though. To be fair, he was pre-warned. When did you start writing? What is your beverage of choice?

I only wear shorts, I hate wearing pants. It’s my job. Chicago. One second later, I’m back. Do you hold grudges? William, not only because I stutter, but since the minute I was born I’ve been called an old man. Jonathan Doyle is a screenwriter and novelist based in Los Angeles with his large collection of books and his trusty DVR. He wrote the best document of all time. When he’s not busy working on a new novel/poem/song/screenplay, he enjoys reading Virginia Woolf, lamenting a Lakers loss, or watching Siberian tiger videos online. It’s an interesting story about two people who should never have found each other, but they do by accident (I’ve met all of my best friends this way). I like a deep red, nothing sweet. Goat Song is Greek for tragedy. It’s just life, we all make mistakes. I really enjoyed chatting with you and best of luck with your writing career. Not long. I’ve made so many mistakes in my life, and if people didn’t forgive me, where would I be?
