The Demons Inside His Heart

Author Interview
D.M. Karlman Author Interview

Into The Garden Came a Snake follows retired Chicago Police Captain Brinker who’s pulled into an NCIS case with global consequences. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

Having been involved in international humanitarian work, I was stunned by the genocide occurring by the current political leadership in Syria. So I wanted to raise the world’s awareness, hence the three terrorists in the book are trying to get the world’s attention to the atrocities being committed to this day in Syria. Since I live in San Diego, the second largest military complex in the US, I thought this would make an interesting backdrop for the story to unfold.

Michael Brinker is an interesting and well-developed character. What were some driving ideals behind your character’s development?

Brinker was in search of redemption after leading a corrupt lifestyle in Chicago. He always knew what he was doing was wrong, but yet, he acquiesced to the voices of the demons inside his heart. A life change moving to San Diego, began his journey back to recapturing the good inside him.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

Sometimes you have to go to extremes to get the world to pay attention; There are good and evil organizations that think nothing of using blackmail to manipulate a life; Good will prevail in the end.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

We are building on the Michael Brinker franchise and continue to build on current world themes. The next book begins Q1 2022.
