What is the funniest thing a reader has ever told you?
That one of the characters in my book Ripples Through Time reminded him of his grandpa. (You will have to read the book to understand why this is funny, sad but funny. C.M. Huddleston)
If you could be any occupation other than an author, what would you be and why?
I actually am a full-time software developer in addition to being a writer, and I enjoy doing it when I get to build and create new things. Sometimes it gets boring, but most of the time it is a lot of fun.
Do you ever laugh or cry while reading your own books? Explain!
There are a few scenes in my books that are extremely emotional, and I tried really hard to bring those emotions out, and it has the effect of actually making me feel the emotions I'm trying to create whenever I see them. They usually involve heated arguments between characters.
What is the last children’s book you read? Why did you read it?
I read a few children's books with my niece recently, including a new one about a talking bird that I can't seem to remember the name of. It wasn't very good, but she didn't know that.
If your latest book (or any book) was made into a movie, who would play the main character?
I would love to have the girl who plays Missandei in Game of Thrones, Nathalie Emmanuel, play Abigail.
Who wrote your favorite book, the one you have read over and over again? What makes this book your favorite?
I love The Count of Monte Cristo because it has just a little bit of everything and I love the way the main character transforms himself prior to seeking his revenge. The entire story comes together perfectly, and the revenge scheme is well-crafted but life still gets in the way.

C.M. Huddleston’s Three Star Review of Ripples Through Time
Three disclaimers: I don’t read horror books, but Lincoln’s horror books get rave reviews. I was gifted this book as an audio book. This book centers on one human action which upsets me on a very personal level, and I usually refuse to read books about it.
Not with that out of the way, I listened to Ripples Through Time on audio book. The narration was well done and easy to follow and listen to. Lincoln’s book carries you through many years, telling you in bits and pieces the story of a family. It could have been called “Regrets” as each character seemed to have many, just as we all do. So why three stars, well, I found the story depressing and too much like real life. It is well written, full of rich characters, and believable. Don’t look for a plot; there isn’t one. This is a narrative. If you enjoy this type book, many of you do, then you will find Lincoln’s Ripples Through Time an enjoyable read. It isn’t long, but is thought provoking and full of pathos.
