Edward Mullen is a novelist, podcaster, and blogger from Vancouver, Canada. His debut novel, THE ART OF THE HUSTLE, was published on August 2, 2012 with critical acclaim. With a steadily-growing fan base thirsty for more, he released his second book - a non-fiction book titled DESTINY AND FREE WILL, which explores the belief that everything happens for a reason. One year after his debut novel, his highly anticipated second novel was released - PRODIGY - a futuristic tale focusing on the unforeseen effects of technology.

Born and raised in beautiful British Columbia, Edward developed a love for the wilderness. This love, combined with an innate curiosity about all things, eventually spawned a healthy imagination for storytelling. He continued to follow his natural passion through to university. Despite spending a lot of his time indoors writing, Edward continues to enjoy the outdoors. He is an avid tennis player, mountain biker, snowboarder, runner, and traveller.

EdwardMullen commented on How to Write a Novel - IDEA


EdwardMullen
Good question! I guess I just sit with the idea and think it through. 

For example, if I have an idea about high-school kids throwing an amazing party -- that may be difficult to stretch into a full-length novel. I may instead consider that for a short story. But if I want to focus on every kid at the party and their back stories, what they do after the party, have them go to college, graduate, go on adventures..., then I may be able to stretch that out over several full-length novels. 

The hardest part is trying to tell a story and you've run out of things to say. I never want to be in that position. I prefer to have so much stuff to talk about that I have to decide what parts to cut out. That is a much better problem to have.
