And then it happens.
An unexpected rift between Lucifer and Michael inaugurates Lucifer onto the path of rebellion. While smiling at his best friend every day, Lucifer begins to amass custom designed weapons and map out the weak points in The Realm. He uses his honey-coated tongue to persuade some of the brethren to join his Loyalist army, even as other brethren sense that all is not right.
As the pressure mounts towards the impending clash of lightning and thunder, Lucifer prepares to unleash something the brethren have never seen. His rebellion will change every single creature in The Realm…forever.
I very much look forward to the next book!
Where are you from? Tell us a little about yourself!
I’m originally from Evanston, IL, first suburb north of Chicago. I love being from the Midwest. Pizza, beaches, hot dogs and Fountain Square. Can’t go wrong with all of that.
Tell us about your book? How did it get started?
My book Lucifer, Soldiers, Serpents and Sin: Book 1 came from three ideas:
- What happens if you’re the coolest of the cool kids, and then you get kicked out?
- Luke 10:18 says that Satan fell as lightning from Heaven. I wondered what that actually looked like.
- I wondered what it would be like to be a divine, holy Cherub one day, then see yourself in the mirror as a twisted, ugly dragon.
How do you create your characters?
These particular characters came from research of the Bible, Jewish, Hindu and Christian studies about angelology, demonology, and my own imagination.
What inspires and what got you started in writing?
I’ve been creative writing since I was child. I’ve always wanted to do it professionally and I knew that I had stories to tell. I jumped in because I said to myself, why not?
Where do you write? Is there something you need in order to write (music, drinks?)
I write all over my house. Bedroom, kitchen, TV room. I don’t really need anything to write except quiet around me.
How do you get your ideas for writing?
I’m an avid reader, and I have an active imagination. Plus I believe that God drops inspiration into our spirits. I also have had training in mining story ideas, and the best ones come from the stories you’ve always wanted to see.
What do you like to read?
Comic books, the Bible, science fiction anthologies and fantasy books.
What would your advice to be for authors or aspiring in regards to writing?
My advice would be to stop judging your content as you write. Just let yourself write. Turn on your creativity like a water faucet and just let it flow. There will be plenty of time to edit later.
Anything else you’d like to share?
I would like to thank you for this interview opportunity!
