Coffee With D.L. Colon

Rae: Thank you so much for hanging out with me today.
D.L.: The pleasure is all mine. Thank you for having me around

Rae: If we were meeting at a coffee shop I’d be drinking a Mocha Latte with Coconut Milk. 🙂 ! What would you order?
D.L.:
I take cappuccino.

Rae: I read that you moved to the States from Puerto Rico to pursue a culinary career and a writing career. That sounds exciting. Do you have plans to infuse both?
D.L.: To be honest, I was thinking on keeping it on separate, but it seems that I am going to implement the cooking into my writing in the future.

Rae: What inspired you to write your first story? 
D.L.: It was thanks to the suggestion of an author. Thanks to that I wrote the main plotline ready for my series, and after consulting with different friends, a very close friend gave me the push I needed.

Rae: Are you a pen and paper writer, or do you type at the keys to get those stories crafted?
D.L.:
I guess you could say that I write as I go on my laptop screen.

Rae: For those who are not familiar with your work can you tell us a little bit your books and who designs your covers? 
D.L.: My First Series Called the Lost City, is based on the biblical apocalypse, but with a big twist to it, and it takes place around different countries around the world.

My Dragon Empire series, I use the concept of Dragon controlling a whole continent and they Killed the family of the main character, and he is out for revenge.

The Time Travel series is about Roy Hudson a gamer, traveling in time to explore ruin that no longer exist in the future.

Rae: What can we expect to see in 2017? Do you have any new series in the works that you can give us a tease?

D.L.: At the moment I have to say that I have a new series that I am working on, but I don’t have anything official yet, as the priority is the 5th book of the Lost City Series

Rae: Where can readers find you in 2017?
D.L.: I am not going to any event, but they can reach my author page.
