What was your motivation behind this project? I wanted to write a Classical murder mystery wrapped inside a legal thriller to encourage my readers to get involved in the political process. Biblical Christianty is the only cure for the ills of society.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? While I always hope to entertain my readers, I hope folks will see the critic need for Christian to be engaged in their communities. The drugs epidemic, racisim, and political corruption are rampant in our world, and only by Christians being salt and light can we hope to have a positive influence for the Kingdom of God.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? During the research, I was surprised by the various special interest groups that make up much of the liberal left in our country. Most of these groups have nothing in common with the exception that they oppose social and financial conservatism.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? The writing for this book was greatly influenced by the writings of Walter Williams, Rev. Jesse Lee Peterson, Hugh Hewitt, and Rush Limbaugh.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Christians have a responsibility to be engaged in our culture. As Edmund Burke once said, "All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing."
