Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
I like to write tales that I like to read. The real joy comes from imagining a different world, and bringing it to life with words. I try to write stories that are positive and contain helpful examples of how people can triumph over adversity. I always try to write books that you would not be ashamed to tell your mother you were reading. My works are all from a Christian world-view, but not all are actually of the "Christian" genre. Having said that, though, I always try to include characters that are known for their Christian faith. It seems strange to me that faith is such an important component of most people's lives, yet our modern literature seems to shy away from it in fictional portrayals.
What do your fans mean to you?
Writing is an essentially solitary activity. Fans help me connect back to the real world. When I learn that something I have written connects to someone else, it is a great encouragement to me. So fans are an essential part of the creative enterprise. Beyond encouragement, constructive criticism helps me refine my craft.

  • Spirit Raiders on Feb. 02, 2016

    This is a complex novel that combines some stock fare in the sci-fi genre, such as alien abductions, advanced technology, first contact and an existential threat to humanity. But it also weaves in something unusual: an appreciation for the spiritual side of our nature. This is a well-researched vision of a near-term future where an advanced system for detecting stealth aircraft also reveals-previously undetected alien spacecraft. Not one, but two alien races are concentrating on Earth, and they seem more interested in exploiting than helping us. Mark, from Dallas, Texas is the first person contacted by extra-terrestrials. Anita Gomez and Alain Brown are on an FBI team led by Colonel Braulio Russo, which is tasked to investigate anything relating to UFO sightings. Circumstances draw them together, and as the plot unfolds, they find themselves at the center of a maelstrom that threatens all humanity. An interesting read, this novel integrates future science and the human soul in an exciting seat-of-the-pants adventure. It explores fundamental questions about life, the universe, and God.
