What other projects do you have on the horizon?
I have a sequel to The Constantine Conspiracy that I’ve tentatively titled THE LAST CRUSADE. I’m working on that now.
I’m also doing a screen play based on a murder mystery I wrote years ago.
What are some of the challenges you face as an author?
Today it’s more and more of a challenge to find publishers to believe in your work. Today’s economy is difficult for publishers, writers and agents.
Also, the ongoing challenge of remaining disciplined to write is a constant every author deals with.
Who was the person who most influenced you in your writing journey?
I’ll name two: a high school English teacher named Mrs. Williams who first told me I had some talent in writing and second, a college professor named Mr. West, who encouraged me to take my writing to a new level of competence and focus.
What message would you like your readers to take from The Constantine Conspiracy?
I want readers to cherish the freedoms we have in the US to offer our faith in humble, loving ways to those who continue to seek God. I also hope readers realize that certain forces, groups, people, really do want to legally remove any expression of faith (Christian or otherwise) from public view.
What is your goal or mission as a writer?
My goal is to write what I call faith-informed stories. These stories will be told through the lives of characters we pull for as they deal with day to day struggles and issues.
What do you do to get away from it all?
I work out on a regular basis at a local fitness center; I play golf; I read good books; and I spend time with my lovely wife and two wonderful daughters.
