Tell us a little about yourself. I served as an officer in US Army in Berlin when the Wall was built and became well acquainted with events there between 1960-1962. Subsequently served 21 years as an FBI agent; upon retirement served as a managing director in London for a large international private investigative business. In 1990 open my own private investigative firm in Florida.
What was your motivation behind this project? My initial reason for writing this historical fictional novel was to acquaint my granddaughters with American history and to encourage them to be aware of events from a Christian World view. The story is based upon actual events, times and places with some leeway for an imagination to keep them interested.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I trust the reader will follow along with interest recognizing what our country has experienced in our recent history and make some effort to make a worthwhile contribution themselves and how Jesus can make a difference in their lives.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? I learned its not so easy to research, write, correct and get an interesting article published and marketed but I was challenged to publish a sequel, which was recently completed. I think research was the most time consuming challenge but the most enjoyable part of the task.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I majored in history and political Science in college and the areas of life's work were helpful in influencing my writing. I enjoy reading and particularly John Le Carre and Stephen Ambrose stories. Pastors whom I have learned from have been a great spiritual inspiration leading me to a personal faith in Christ for which I am grateful.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I would like for readers to come to a saving knowledge of Christ and obtain the freedom and peace that I have reached through His grace.
