I would very much like to welcome C. J. West, author of The End of Marking Time as well as six other books to Emeraldfire's Bookmark. I had the pleasure of emailing Mr. West several weeks ago because I wanted to interview him and he was kind enough to answer some questions from me about his recent plans for a previous book being brought to the Big Screen, his family, the plot of The End of Marking Time, his Who Wants to be a Hero? book tour and his potential future plans.
