**Spoilers for Four Months in Brighton Park**
Q: What other authors are you friends with, and how do they help you become a better writer?
Mr. Ehrhorn: “The only two authors that I personally know are Sue Massey (Letters from the Heart) and Erica Hughes (several self-published romance novels). They both encouraged me to self-publish, and Erica took me through the technical aspects.”
Q: What is your favorite under-appreciated novel?
Mr. Ehrhorn: ” I have really enjoyed August Derleth’s Sac Prairie saga novels, the first being The House on the Mound, followed by Bright Journey, actually a prequel.”
Q: What was your hardest scene to write?
Mr. Ehrhorn: “The death of Mary Harker, a guide/friend for Kelly Elliott. I wanted it to be sad, unexpected, and somewhat cruel from the hotel manager’s behavior.”
Q: What aspects of your novel reflect your personal experiences?
Mr. Ehrhorn: “Chicago, 1965, big high school, friends, activities, and some adventures.”
Q: How did you choose the main character’s name?
Mr. Ehrhorn: “I simply do not remember that. I began this book, literally, thirty years ago. I know I wanted the “kid with two first names,” but how I arrived there, I do not remember — perhaps some guys in the dorm?”
Thanks, Mr. Ehrhorn for reaching out to me and introduce me to your amazing book! I can tell that you’ve put a lot of time and love in your book.
