Tell us a little about yourself. Im a novelist who has written six novels featuring FBI special agent Patrick Bowers. Placebo is the first book in my new series of thrillers featuring illusionist and escape artist Jevin Banks.
What was your motivation behind this project? After writing half a dozen novels all centered around the same character I wanted to start a new series so that I would stay fresh in my writing and storytelling. I loved getting to know the quirky characters in this new series.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope readers will gain a new perspective on love and the deepest desires of human nature. Specifically, as I wrote I was asking myself the question of whether people want to be loved or to feel loved. Its not as easy of an question as it might appear to be. It really made me thinkand led me to some conclusions I wasnt anticipating.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Its easy for all of us to forget how much of a blessing each moment is. Scripture says that this is the day that the Lord has made, that we should rejoice and be glad in it. Theres a lot of power in that verseevery moment is a gift that we should rejoice in. I think we might all know that on one level, but to really believe it and live it, thats something entirely different. If people take a new awareness of the wonder of every moment away from this book, Id be thrilled.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Its hard to say who influenced this project. Jevin is an illusionist and escape artist and I remember, when I was growing up, watching TV specials with magicians and always loving them. Some of the tricks are so mind-blowing! So, I suppose I was inspired by my lifelong love of illusions and sleight-of-hand.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: This is a science thriller and has a different feel than the intense psychological suspense of a Patrick Bowers novel. If you love suspense but have shied away from the Bowers novels because they are too graphic, youll love Placebo.
