The Villian from XIII by Keith Gaston
Who causes friction is the story?
Do you prefer bad guys or bad gals?
I don’t have a preference both make great villains.
How do you use your bad guys?
Jason is tormented and going through a transformation. He promised to give up something very important to him and it is changing him physically and spiritually to hold on to it.
Do you enjoy writing the bad guys or do you find it difficult?
The bad guys are the best part of a thriller. I would find it difficult not to write a good bad guy.
Whether you enjoy writing them or hate writing them, we'd like to know why you feel that way?
A villain drives the story forward and gives the hero his or her motivation to go on despite the odds they must face.
Who is your favorite bad guy in any of your books? Which bad guy and which book are they in?
This one is tough to answer, I have about three villains I could place here but I will stick with the one who’s the most evil of all.
Beelzebub (Beelzy) Abaddon from XIII. I like him because of his quirkiness; he walks around in his office in his bare feet, smoke Cuban cigars, always finds a way to manipulate people in his soft spoken way and oh yes, he’s the devil.
Who is your favorite fictional bad guy -- that's not in your books?
Professor Moriaty from Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes series. I’m also partial to the Master, from Doctor Who.
