Local writer enjoys writing as a whole lot as teaching

Southeast Idaho is home to Alan Thompson. He has written a technology fiction novel, “Creation Abomination,” which looks at the ethical dilemmas in growing clones for harvesting stem cells. The predominant individual, William Mears, has been working on his doctoral dissertation and hopes to show that stem cells can restore supposedly irreparable injuries by using stem cells. It is a charming concept, and Thompson feels many humans will connect to the main man or woman as he faces unique hurdles.


Thompson grew up in Silicon Valley and moved to Chicago in 2003. He prefers the small cities and specifically loves living in Rexburg, ID. His father grew up in Blackfoot, and Thompson Lane became named after this circle of relatives. “I love being close to my cousins and aunts. It is great to have a slower-paced lifestyle,” Thompson says. He started writing “Creation Abomination” in 1995 when the idea came to him after reading Jurassic Park by Michael Crichton. He wrote a 28-web-page definition for the ebook; however, it was put on hold while lifestyles passed off. He was given married, and then his kids got here along after. In 2010 he commenced writing once more. It took around six years to complete writing the radical.

“I love writing because it’s miles healing. I get a risk to be innovative and try to position a visible concept onto the page is tough but a laugh.” Thompson laughed. “I am a creature of addiction, which is ideal while you are trying to put in writing an ebook. I arise early and exercise, and then start to write. I write till I can finish a bankruptcy. Sometimes this takes up to 10 hours! While I am writing, not anything else matters.” Thompson feels when writing, he has to have a skeleton outline.

Editing is tough for writers. When they had been working on a piece for a long term, after which looking to, in my opinion, edit a manuscript, portions get pushed to the sidelines. “Now I understand for my next ebook, I am hiring an expert editor,” Thompson stated, describing the modifying system. Thompson is presently teaching virtual advertising at Brigham Young University-Idaho.

Teaching at the university stage is time eating, but Thompson is near finishing his second ebook. He enjoys displaying his paintings at comedian conventions and nearby Renaissance fairs. If one would love to meet Thompson, he may be at the Snake River Renaissance Faire, of which he is a sponsor, in Rigby, Idaho. It runs from August 2-4 and could be at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds. His hardback and paperback will be for sale in addition to artwork primarily based on the motion within the novel.
