Fallen Race: The Celestial Clock (Author Interview)

Fallen Race looks like it’s set to be a great mystery trilogy.  How far out is book three?  
I am working on Chapter Thirty-One of Book 3 right now. About 30,000 words. I have at least 60,000 word to the finish line.

How did you come up with the story in Fallen Race the Celestial Clock?  
I am a huge fan of conspiracy thrillers and get many of my ideas from writers like Dan Brown or James Patterson.       

Is Fallen Race: The Celestial Clock a standalone read or would you recommend Fallen Race: The Inheritance first?
I always recommend reading the first book before the second or third, because the first book sets the worldview and the foundation of the conspiracy or mystery. With that in mind, I write my novels as standalone stories.

What inspired you when writing Fallen Race: The Celestial Clock?   
I am intrigued by the scientific studies that are going on behind the scenes in the world. The Vatican is very involved in astronomy and science. They also participate with CERN which has become very controversial with conspiracy theorists. In reading these conspiracies, I began to wonder if the machine at CERN might have the capability to open portals all over the world, accidentally. That inspired this story. I’m also inspired by ancient ruins and archeology.

When did you decide to become a writer?
I’ve been writing for a while, but I became serious about writing fiction eight years ago. Before that, I wrote articles for a songwriter’s magazine and I wrote songs.

When writing Fallen Race: The Celestial Clock did anything stand out as particularly challenging?  
How might an underwater bio habitat could be set in place in the middle of the Caribbean? Thankfully, it is fiction. It would take a lot of money and time to do what I am writing about. Then again, money is what the Vatican has a lot of…

What do you like to do when not writing?
I hope to be a full-time writer eventually. When I am not writing I spend time working as an Executive Assistant at Alzheimer’s Resource of Alaska. Otherwise, I’m with my children and grandchildren.
