What's the story behind your latest book Final Hearing?
The correlation between politics and morality as well as ethics, as they relate to civic responsibility. How a person can be lured, or more specifically dragged into the muddy waters of politics and have their lives changed forever. How a person can be punished over and over again for crime they were already convicted of. How personal intimate relationships are tested by other relationships when layers of stress are infused. Why trophies are so important to killers? Does revenge really solve your problems or do they create new ones?
