John met Luke recently through MySpace and where he discovered Luke's first novel, The Dark Path. Luke talks with John about his desire to create a character that struggles against his goodness rather than reluctantly giving into it. Make sure you rate the episode below and comment on it in the forums.
Luke Romyn spent many years, fifteen in fact, working in the security industry. From doorwork in some of Australia's roughest pubs and clubs to protecting Mickey Mouse and the Disney crew from the overzealous jaws of tenacious toddlers, Luke has worked throughout Australia and internationally in a vast array of roles.
He's done close protection for UK celebrities in Fiji and chased feral pigs and snakes out of the film set on Steven Spielberg and Tom Hank's upcoming epic: The Pacific. There are few things Luke hasn't seen.
With all this experience behind him, it would be tempting to write a set of memoirs. Instead, Luke utilized it to fuel his own expansive imagination and began writing fiction. Initially starting with short stories, Luke rapidly progressed onto novels. His first book, THE DARK PATH, is now out and is already a #1 best selling Horror. His second novel, BLACKLISTED, is almost set to go and will blow the roof off action thrillers.
