Smashwords Interview

What are you working on next?
I'm working on "__ Proposals to STOP Wrongful Convictions before the End of this Decade." Since 2003, when I learned about the wrongful conviction and imprisonment of Dennis Dechaine in Maine, I've worked to exonerate him and several others who claim innocence. Dennis's story is told in the book, "Human Sacrifice," by James Moore and on Dennis's website, www.trialanderrordennis.org. There are approximately 30,000 wrongly convicted people in U.S. prisons, which contain about 1.5 million inmates. The percentage is 2%, and that's considered by some researchers to be conservative.
The title of the book leaves the number ("__") of proposals blank, because I'm still writing and adding. Currently, there are about 60, including creating a universal, nationwide DNA database. Imagine a criminal justice system where EVERY crime from which DNA is obtained can be solved. That includes most rapes and many murders. Another proposal is to encourage defendants to testify more often, as juries WANT to hear from them.
When you're not writing, how do you spend your time?
When not writing, I'm researching for a current book-in-process, or the next, which will be "Too Many Humans - Bringing the Human Population into Equilibrium with our Earth." Also, I have a few clients for whose exonerations, I am working. Alfred Trenkler is in Federal Prison in Arizona for the death of a Boston Bomb Squad officer who died when inspecting a bomb at the home of the father of a teenager whom Alfred knew. Alfred was convicted in 1993 of building that bomb, but he had absolutely nothing to do with it. Absolutely nothing. See his website, www.alfredtrenklerinnocent.org and my book about his case, "Perfectly Innocent - The Wrongful Conviction of Alfred Trenkler."
Another client is Chad Evans who has been in the New Hampshire State Prison since his 2001 conviction for murdering Kassidy Bortner, the 21-month old daughter of his woman friend, Amanda Bortner. However, Chad did not kill Kassidy and did not abuse her. Although the medical examiner said it was murder, Kassidy likely died of a combination of congenital heart failure compounded by known and unknown accidents. Chad's website is at www.chadevanswronglyconvicted.org and my book about his case is "EYE CONTACT - The Mysterious Death of Kassidy Bortner in 2000 and the Wrongful Convictions of Chad Evans and Amanda Bortner." Volumes 2 and 3 of that book are Chad's letters to me in 2010 and 2011, respectively, as I was becoming familiar with his case.
When not working, I maintain a home with my wife in rural Maine, USA. We spend some time traveling each year and some special time with children and grandchildren.
