Tell us a little about yourself. Im an author and storyteller with a Masters Degree in Storytelling. Its an unusual degree, but Im thankful for the chance to make a living telling stories. This is my second novel.
What was your motivation behind this project? I actually had the idea for this novel when I was reading a book about sharks to my eight-year-old daughter. It mentioned that sharks have a scientifically-proven sixth sense. I found that amazing ,and as I thought more about it, that one fact opened up the whole story to me. This book has a special place in my heart because the seed for it came from story time with my daughter.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? With this book I wanted to explore the question of what it would take for Patrick Bowers to step over the line and become like those he hunts. Id love for readers to reflect on that question for themselveswhat would it take for them to step over and do the unthinkable? What keeps us from doing so? How does that lead us to humility and thanksgiving?
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I gained a new understanding of how each one of us has threads of evil running through our hearts. We are, all of us, capable of doing the unthinkable. That insight frightened me a little bit but led me to more seriously take to heart the promises of Scripture and the power of Gods Spirit.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? For this book I gained some insights from my reading of the Christian mysticsspecifically Francis De Fenelon. I love his introspective and thought-provoking spiritual writings.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: This book isnt as intense as The Pawn, but rather deals with a terrorist plot. Its more like 24 than a CSI episode. Youll find Patrick Bowers at his best, but you wont have quite such shocking scenes of psychological suspense. And by the way, if you love stories with a twist, youre going to love the ending of The Rook.
