Meet Nick Christophers, Author of “Mafia Ties – The Greek Syndicates” the new exciting True Crime Novel Released on the 27th of July 2020
-Now, Nick, I understand your novel is a printed book and ebook. Tell us more about yourself and your book
Mafia Ties – The Greek Syndicates is a historical overview of how Greek gangsters worked in the shadow of the traditional mafia. From New York to Australia they worked under the radar in all aspects of organized crime activities. It is an eye-opening account of how they operated with the likes of Al Capone to John Gotti. I have been in the writing game for over 20 years and have grown up with these types of men and have been known as a mob expert. Besides being published I also appeared on numerous shows most notably on the cable show REELZ for the show “Mafia Killers w/ Colin McLaren” in 4 episodes.
-Wow! That is so impressive, and he subject seems really interesting, I believe many people will find this a fascinating read! What inspired you to write this book?
I have been writing all my life. This was my third book and felt as a Greek myself and knowing the head of the Greek crew in NY his story needed to be told. But it morphed into developing into a global look into the Greek underworld as a better choice.
-Very interesting! I myself find the subject highly intriguing since I incorporated Greek mythology into my own novel, I think a lot of people specially readers love to read about all things Greek! What was the main challenge you faced when creating your book?
Gathering info from ex-mobsters and digging for credible references.
-Am sure that wasn’t a walk in the park! How do you stand out from your competition?
This is a subject that has never been extensively written about or organized into one book.
-So you are an entrepreneur in a way! Are you a huge reader yourself? And what do you usually read? Any favorites?
Yes, I am always reading mostly about organized crime and world history. My favorites are for true crime “The Godfather” and history “The Gates of Fire”.
-Godfather is an all-time favorite of mine and many of my friends and fellow writers! Tell us, what is your next step as an author?
I am currently working to adapt my first book “Destinies” a fictional mob story into a film. The first draft of the screenplay has been completed and is in the editing stage. And I am working on my 5th book about ex-mobster Bill Cutolo Jr.
-Wow, it’s the first time we have an author for an interview whose work is being made into a movie! Very cool! Do you have any tips or advice for other aspiring indie authors?
Yes, write all the time and keep practicing your craft and I believe it is best to write about what you know about best or identify with. It usually flows out of you and tends to require less stress and normally comes out shining.
-I very much agree with that, from my humble experience, it is always better to write about what you know, that’s the number 1 advice for any aspiring author! Very true! Is there anything else you would like to add?
I am always looking to find new ways to expose my work and promote it. My biggest goal at the moment is to see “Destinies” as a film. All my books have earned 4 to 5 stars on Amazon with great reviews so I think I am on the right track.
That’s awesome, thank you Nick for those great insights! We all wish you the best of luck, and we look forward to seeing your next piece of work.
