Interview with an Author - Chad Descoteaux

  • Tell me a little about yourself, personally.


My name is Chad Descoteaux. I'm the CEO and sole employee of Turtle Rocket Books. I write sci-fi novels and short stories that combine relatable characters with fantastic sci-fi adventures. I'm from Rhode Island (USA) I'm married and I have Aspergers.


  • What is the name of the book or books you have published?


The Inter-Terrestrial, The Tattler, The Exoskeleton Chronicles, Working-Class Superheroes, and Veganarchy. All of these books, except for Veganarchy, have at least one sequel (11 books altogether) and will be a trilogy when I am done. Veganarchy is a one-shot, no sequels.


  • Where can they be found?


My official website turtlerocketbooks.com, Amazon and Smashwords.


  • Do you have any current WIPs?


I am working on the third book in the Tattler series called The Tattler: Cancelled.


  • How are they going?


Great! I have a strong rough draft that I'm excited about.


  • What got you into writing?


Being bored in a high school study hall twenty years ago and writing a crazy story about Godzilla style monsters to make this kid laugh.


  • What keeps you focused?


Good question. I have to struggle to focus, but as long as I'm not ridiculously tired, I manage.


  • What gives you inspiration?


The world around me. Things I have something to say about or want to goof on.


  • How do you battle writer’s block?


By stepping away from writing until something in real life inspires me.


  • Did you decide on traditional or self publishing?


Self-publishing.


  • What made you make that choice?


To have the creative freedom necessary to merge the four trilogies I intend to write (and Veganarchy) into a literary sci-fi multiverse with the fourth Tattler book. 14 books altogether.


  • How does it feel to be considered an author?


Great. I love telling stories.


  • What’s your social media platforms for people to find you?
