What drives Scono to write verses Joe?

Fellow writer Darnell Cureton of the Fictionista blog commented on one of my posts in which I published a sample from She Is The New Savior

20190630_1305207795170130459536580.jpgThank you for the sample. I just got an Amazon copy. Question. What drives Scono to write verses Joe?”

I always appreciate when I am asked a question which causes me to reflect. My answer follows —

Scono and Joe are both driven to write about damaged and broken people. Joe is motivated to not only entertain, but try and raise a bit of awareness and perhaps spark serious conversation.

Scono is driven to tell stories, completely unencumbered and unrestricted by societal norms. The drive is to entertain, but is also to shatter taboos and push boundaries. To take what are considered deviant and taboo matters and within the confines of the story, make them almost appear “normal.” In other words, to walk up to the line, walk over the line, then take a sledgehammer and destroy the concrete upon which the line is painted.

She Is The New Savior was my first novel, written well over a decade ago. My writing style has changed a bit over the years. Of all stories, those characters remain very close to me. I re-read the book often. It was my first writing in which I took a damaged person and explored what impact a devastating trauma could have on them, and her trauma is extreme.

In Scono’s world the reactions are extreme, in Joe’s they are more grounded in reality.

I hope you find I told a good story and I hope you also gain a bit of affection for the main character.
Joe


I write of the damaged and broken, because that is the norm. For each person who overcomes their demons, there are hundreds, if not thousands, who do not.

It is their stories I tell.

I am an independent, self-published teller of tales,
an author, as of yet, scarcely any renown.
However, as a storyteller, I know who I am,
and with that persona, I am both confident and comfortable. I invite you to visit my website,
