Tell us a little about yourself. We are Diane and David Munson, ExFeds, and writers of High Velocity Suspense that's based on our exciting careers in the Federal justice system. Diane is an attorney who served as a Federal prosecutor and also as an official in President Ronald Reagan's Justice Department. David is a former Federal agent who served with the Drug Enforcement Administration and Naval Investigative Service, now known as NCIS (just like the TV show). Much of his work as an undercover agent was dangerous and he infiltrated international drug smuggling organizations.
What was your motivation behind this project? Friends who knew about our backgrounds urged us to write a book about our exciting careers. When a Christian publishing company made the same suggestion, we decided to write Christian suspense novels. "Hero's Ransom" is our fourth and we wanted to weave a plot involving Chinese espionage and the impact on one family.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? It was our goal to write an exciting suspense novel in which the reader would get a realistic glimpse of how the judicial system really works and provide a wholesome family friendly novel that reveals Christian law enforcement officers living and working with others who do not share their faith.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? After doing research for "Hero's Ransom," we are struck by the influence the country of China will have in the coming years. We hope readers will see the symbolism of the ransom paid for Amber Worthing and Christ's ransom.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? Reviewers (Christian Fiction Review and others) have favorably compared our writing to John Grisham. Inspiration comes from our faith, God's creation, and love of family.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: We call our novels "factional-fiction," as each one contains bits and pieces of true cases or events. The names and places are changed to protect us. "Hero's Ransom" features a child custody case inspired by Diane's legal work helping children. It also highlights the smuggling of antiquities, which is based on a real case David made.
