Tell us a little about yourself. I love people and yet I love being alone. I receive strength from both. I am atheletic, yet enjoy flopping down on the couch to vegetate. I also enjoy having spirited conversations about theology, science, or anything new and different.
What was your motivation behind this project? My brother Mike wished someone would write about a lost civilization. It dawned on me that one of Cain's decendants, Tubal-Cain, worked with bronze and iron. That seemed highly unusual for that period in time. Therefore, since Cain had built a city and Tubal-Cain worked with advanced tools, it seemed natural that an advanced unknown city was a natural progression.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope readers will come away with a fun, enjoyable, and clean (as I think the use of profanity is a lazy and uneccessary use of our language) read. I also want people to see how ehtical dilemas of the past mirror those of today. As much as people advance in knowledge and technology, emotions and relationships seem to have varied little.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? There are too many people to pin down as a particular source of inspiration. However, I would have to say that I am intrigued with the people around me; their little quirks and ideas spark something inside me to generate ideas. Of course God is the ulitmate source of inspiration and He constantly guides me, but He has also created people, animals, and nature for me to glean ideas from.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: Remember that the book is fiction. I do take facts and information from the Bible and Science, and then combine a very interesting view of what the past would be like at this early period in time. But it is my view and not Gospel.
