What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I wrote this series for kids who love fast-paced adventure -- like I do. But there's so much more to it than that. Loyalty, faith, tragedy, courage... When you read these stories you'll discover real people wrestling with real-life faith issues. After all, they're based on real events! So in the bargain you'll learn some history, too, and find how God is faithful through the years, from generation to generation.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I guess you can call these "Christian spy stories for kids," and I grew up on a lot of these kinds of adventures. So it was only natural that I'd eventually write about Berlin -- and life behind the Berlin Wall. By the way, you'll learn more about the real-life Candy Bomber in the back of the book. This first book in the series was inspired by him.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Hang on! These adventures will take you for a ride, and you'll see what it was like to live in a divided city, behind the hated wall that divided all of Germany during the Cold War years. With boy and girl characters from several generations, there's plenty of adventure for everyone.
