Interview with W.B. Stiles
What's the story behind your latest book?
Jane Watkins, reporter for the Seattle Gazette newspaper, goes to meet a source with information about a serial killer known as the Slasher—only to find herself facing not an informant but the killer. She nearly meets her death but is miraculously saved by a glowing figure. He calls himself the Advocate, and Jane’s encounter with them both is about to change her life and theirs forever.
It seems the Advocate—whose real name is John Tomar—is one of several people who have developed superhuman powers through a substance known as the Genesis Factor. On the estate of his father, Nathan, and with his guidance and protection, John works to gather and train those with special abilities in service of a mission for the greater good—a task that draws the eyes of enemies. Meanwhile, Jane feels driven to discover the truth about the mysterious man—even more so when she sees a picture of him flying away from the scene of a midair explosion.
"The Gathering" is the first book of the Project Genesis, the paths of the hero and the reporter converge in an exploration of good, evil, human, and superhuman; considering who we are, where we came from, and where we are going.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
Sharing my thoughts and stories with others in a fresh and new way. Letting the characters take a life of their own and be part of an imaginary world in fiction, and helping people consider the point of view in my non fiction writings.
What are you working on next?
The Struggle is the second book in the Project Genesis series. It will be the middle book in a trilogy about superhero life and struggles to do the right thing.
