Enter the Light: Overcoming the Darkness (Author Interview)



Enter the Light looks like an exciting story.  Can you tell us a little about James Stevens?

James Stevens is the main character in the story. The story begins with James in jail and totally at a loss on how he ended up there. I wanted James to be a hard-working guy who was trying to do all the right things but somehow end up in trouble that he couldn’t explain.

Any plans to turn it into a series?

Well that really depends on how well the audience takes to Enter the Light and if they demand more.


How long did it take you to write Enter the Light?

It took me a long time to write Enter the Light because it was a different type of book and a different style of writing for me as an author. I normally write nonfiction books where I can share my experience and knowledge regarding the subject matter of a book. This is a fictional story which is a totally different style of writing.


That’s an amazing cover.  Can you tell us a little about it?

The cover is actually a follow on to my previous book “The Battle is on!” The Angel and the Demonic figure are meant to illustrate the Spiritual War that takes place between good and evil.


What inspired you when writing Enter the Light?   

I wanted to share a story about how common everyday people can be influenced and, in some cases, attacked by demonic forces. The primary purpose of this story is to entertain but I also want to force people to actually think of how they live and what forces could possibly be influencing their thoughts.


How did you come up with the story in Enter the Light?

What makes Enter the Light unique is that it is a follow up of a previous book I wrote entitled “The Battle is On!” The Battle is On was written to teach the reader about spiritual warfare. Once the book was completed, I had the thought. “What if I create a story to illustrate the principle in this book?” That was the birth of Enter the Light.


Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing Enter the Light?

The most challenging thing in this writing was dialogue because I normally write nonfiction books. Creating characters and the dialogue between those characters was challenging.


What do you like to do when not writing?

I am retired from the military after 20 years of service and I am also retired from all of my other activities as an Instructional Systems Specialist, Corporate Trainer, Curriculum Developer, and Training Evaluator.  So, when I am not writing I am relaxing and enjoying life and retirement. I still get involved in a variety of projects, but it is at my leisure.
