Interview – Justin Bienvenue


*Justin declined a video interview*

1. Tell us a bit about yourself.
I live in a town south of Boston, Massachusetts. I like to consider myself a poet aside from being an author and writer. I enjoy writing because it is my way to create and expand my mind and put my thoughts onto paper or a screen. I am a friendly and outgoing person, I enjoy sports and am always willing to try new things as long as they aren’t too crazy. I am not a big reader though I definitely read a lot more now that I am an author. I enjoy meeting new people, I don’t like big changes and I get my inspiration from just about anything, either it pops into my head or from what I take in and see or hear around me.
2. Do you consider yourself a character driven writer, or a plot driven writer?
Plot driven, only because since I also write poetry I don’t tend to create or write about characters within my poems. Don’t get me wrong I can write a good character just like the rest of them but I focus more on the plot, the storyline as a whole. I see the plot as it is which is the foundation of the whole story and after I detail and make that as strong as I feel it needs to be I then work on my characters. A lot of people say they their characters start writing themselves I would say this happens to me every one in a long while but not a lot as again probably because of my focus more on the plot rather than the characters. My 2nd book was really the first time where I focused as much on my characters as I did for the plot.
3. What is your favorite sport and team?
My favorite sport is football and my favorite team is the New England Patriots, Go Pats!
4. Where were you born, where did you grow up, and where do you live now?
I was born in, grew up in and still currently live in a town south of Boston known as Attleboro. Not much to say about it or do around here but I make it work the best I can until I can one day get out of here.
5. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
Well given in my last response I clearly noted that I don’t wish to be here anymore I would say anywhere! Lol. In all seriousness I would say Chicago or California. Chicago because I have found that they have great places to eat and it’s a very active town which I need to be a part of. California because it’s beautiful there, it’s big and it’s a good change or scenery and I’d love to be there.
6. What writers inspire you?
Edgar Allan Poe, Rod Serling, William Shakespeare and Stephen King.
7. What is your favorite food, color, and ice cream flavor?
I have a few favorite foods which are Hot Dogs, Macaroni & Cheese, Chicken Parmesan and Steak and Cheese. My favorite color is Green and my favorite ice cream flavor is Red Velvet Cake.
8. When you write, what is your drink of choice?
Well I’m drinking a Pepsi right now but I usually drink Mountain Dew Code Red.
9. Tell us about your current books and future releases?
My first book is a book of horror poetry called, The Macabre Masterpiece: Poems of Horror and Gore. It is a book of 50 poems in 5 chapters each of a different element of horror.
My second book is a Western Horror called, A Bloody Bloody Mess in the Wild Wild West. It is a book about a small bordering Mississippi/Alabama fictional town and their battle against a Mexican outlaw who is trying to takeover.
My third book is my most recent which is another book of poetry called, Like A box of Chocolates. It is a book of mixed poetry throughout many different genres. Genres such as Horror, Sci-Fi, Fantasy, Romance, Bizarro, Mystery/Suspense and many more
10. How much control do you feel you have on the outcome of your story? Do you have
complete control or are you along for the ride?
I would say I have complete control. Everything that I write usually comes from my own my which are my own thoughts so I would say that counts as me having complete control. Of course this could probably mean what I said earlier with Characters writing themselves after a while but as I stated earlier I keep to the writing and my characters do what they are told so I have complete control.

“The plot is an incredibly intriguing one, and it certainly picks up after a few revealing details.”

“It’s hard to say much without giving the story away but I can say that there are a few twists in the plot that you probably won’t expect.”

[Author] writing is powerful and inspite of absence of gory descriptions, the fear factor exists. There is an aura of fear and valour at the same time.
