We had the good fortune of connecting with Jeremy Richard and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jeremy, what habits do you feel play an important role in your life?
For me, it’s been a mixture of strong discipline and fearless-hunger. The ability to jump and not worry about the fall became the go-to habits I needed to succeed.
Please tell us more about your work. We’d love to hear what sets you apart from others, what you are most proud of or excited about. How did you get to where you are today professionally. Was it easy? If not, how did you overcome the challenges? What are the lessons you’ve learned along the way. What do you want the world to know about you or your brand and story?
Being a thriller author is a dream I’ve never thought I’ll be on; honestly, what sets me apart is the ability to combine my faith and the art of thriller. This journey started on my way to biblical seminary college when I gave my life to Christ. And this surely wasn’t easy; this was considered tabo to write about horror and thriller, and joining the Christian name together ( Christian-thrillers). I was afraid at first of the backlash from the Christian community until I met a Pastor that completely understood my mission. Slowly in my writing career, I learned this was a gift that God gave me, so the fear of walking on eggshells faded; my brand as JLR-Writer represents the ability to expose darkness from a Christian biblical standpoint through storytelling.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
My favorite spot in my area would be Seabrook and Kemah; I really enjoy nature and the beauty of the small city of Kemah, i would normally treat my friend that visits for dinner out on the boardwalk ( the Aquarium or salt-grass ) then on to the party boat. Most of my friends are very artsy, so The Alley Theatre is a big go-to and bowling and pool, but since Covid, things aren’t the same yet.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
A huge shoutout to my publishing company im signed with, Christian Faith Publishing; For having the belief in my skill in an unheard Genre a road not much traveled that is (lol) and shoutout to Mary Ann Poll (Lady of Supernatural Thrillers) Nathan Day, two awards winning authors, that showered me with confidence. and last but not least, my parents and my sister Natasha Mouton-Slaughter.
