    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am a Fourth Degree Knight of Columbus and a Pro-Life Missionary. My wife Guadalupe and I have been building the culture of life by helping pregnant mothers in crisis since the early 90's.

Advocating for the sanctity of all human life from fertilization to natural death is more than just a part-time ministry, it is our family's calling. Our mission is made manifest through sidewalk counseling, community organizing, speaking engagements, promoting Natural Family Planning, offering small group instruction on the papal encyclical Humanae Vitae, and increasing awareness of the harms and dangers of hormonal contraception and abortion to women and families.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I was looking for a way to communicate the truths of the sanctity of human life in a way that young people (16-30) might be open to reading. The book is written at a 6th grade reading level so it is very accessible and moves very quickly between interlaced time-lines - perfect for today's short attention spans. There are supernatural characters in it as well and the educational parts are conveyed through character dialog.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  It is entertaining and didactic at the same time. The work is designed to teach and instruct about such issues as the significance that a single human life can have, the value of intercessory prayer, the importance of forgiveness, the true nature and ends of the marriage act, spiritual warfare, the dangers of hormonal contraception and abortion and the availability of healing and redemption through Christ.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  my favorite authors include: Frank Peretti, Bud MacPharlane, and Michael O'Brien The Book of Tobit was a major inspiration for this novel. My contemporary heros include Monsignor Phillip Reilly, John Cardinal O'Connor, Joe Scheidler, Martin Luther King, Jr.
