Tell us a little about yourself. I have authored nine books on the subject of Marian apparitions with primary focus on the apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary occurring in a little town called Medjugorje in the country of Bosnia-Hercegovina. It has been ongoing daily since June 24, 1981, a period of more than 32 years.
What was your motivation behind this project? When I first heard of the Medjugorje apparitions, I did not believe it. I was a luke-warm Lutheran Protestant as well as a publisher-owner of four weekly newspapers. My only interest in it was as a story for my newspapers. I heard about it in October, 1985 and out of curiosity asked the person who told me about it if there were any books or articles that would serve as research material for the one article I would write about it. The person gave me a video that actually showed the visionaries at the moment of the apparition. While watching, I had a tremendous life-changing moment when I felt an inner call to write about the apparitions and if I accepted, it would become my life mission. In the 28 years of involvement, I have traveled the world lecturing on the Medjugorje. phenomena, and have authored nine books about it.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? In my latest book, I have delved deeper into the post-apparition time in which 10 future events or prophecies will occur according to the Blessed Virgin Mary. This book, The Last Apparition, took me two full years to complete. It is the most detailed and the most revealing book on the apparitions I have done.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? The Medjugorje apparitions dramatically changed my life. For the first time I actually believed in God and began to put Him in the center of my life.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? The greatest influences have been the people actually involved in the apparitions, especially the Franciscan priests and the visionaries.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I truly believe that the ongoing apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Medjugorje is the most important event occurring in the world today.
