Interview and Giveaway: The Gentleman by Natasha Powell
Please share a little about yourself, your genres, any other pen names you use.
Well, where do I start? I’m from Tampa, FL and I’ve always had an interest in writing just about anything. As a kid, I used to write as other writers, once I saw I could write my own stories, I began to write as myself.
After I begin writing, I get a rush of ideas and cannot stop writing and continuing the story. Sometimes I spend 20 plus hours writing and three days crying after I read what I wrote during my writing marathon. I enjoy sci-fi, fantasy and some thriller novels and try to read regularly
Tell us a little about your latest or upcoming release.
My latest release is my debut book, The Gentleman, is a horror novel that follows the protagonist, James Greene, as he tries to rid himself from a demon known as The Gentleman.
The next project I have is a series of short stories that I plan to release individually on Amazon and release as a set later in the year as a collection of short stories.
Other than that, I have a bunch of screenplays and novels planned later in the year.
Have you ever based your book or characters on actual events or people from your own life?
I mostly took traits from people I knew, but no character I created is based solely on a particular person from my life.
What would your readers be surprised to learn about you?
I was in the military for 8 years.
When you’re not writing what do you do? Do you have any hobbies or guilty pleasures?
I’m watching Archer, Vikings, The History Channel, B rated movies, running, drawing, learning code and electronics, reading…oh, attempting to become organized.
What is next for you? Do you have any scheduled upcoming releases or works in progress?
The works I have in progress are a series of short stories, divided into three categories that I plan to release individually then as a set. The three categories are Paranormal and Super Natural, Monsters, and Macabre.

James Greene would do anything to keep his soul. But his year on the run from the demon known as The Gentleman, has left him with two choices: kill himself, or pay the piper. While in a dumpy hotel in Florida, wrestling with the thoughts of suicide, a letter sent from a stranger gives James a third choice: get rid of him once and for all.
The letter leads him to his family’s plantation home in Athens, Georgia. There, he discovers not only his family's secrets, but also The Gentleman’s true intentions. The Gentleman offers James a deal he can’t resist, play the last game, and if he wins, he gets to keep his soul.
