What inspired you to write this book? Is there anything socially/economically significant about the overall message in your book?

This book has been over twenty-five years in the making. I got the first spark of inspiration Read a chapterfor this story after reading “The Resurrection Factor” by Josh McDowell. That book laid out the facts of the Resurrection (for and against) in a methodical, court-like manner. It made me wonder what it would be like to create a work of fiction with a Resurrection trial as a back drop. I originally wrote the screenplay for this story with a pair of filmmakers. We tried to get the financing for the film back in the 1990s, but were unable to. Nearly two decades later, after I completed my first novel, I decided to bring this story back as a novel. With these filmmakers, I updated the screenplay for contemporary audiences. Then I wrote the novel. The filmmakers are currently trying to raise the financing for the updated screenplay.

What’s next for you as an author?

I’m at work on my third novel while also researching my fourth novel.
