Hidden Deep Within The Lines

Louis Orozco Lopez Author Interview

Finding The Oak Tree follows a young boy that has no memory of who he is or where he came from and embarks on a journey of self-discovery. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

As a young boy, I was adopted after losing my mother to suicide. When I look back now, I don’t remember anything other than her face and smile and having spent a large part of my life trying to fill the void she left behind; there was a lot inside that, at some point, needed to come out.

This story was not only a tribute to her but to my adopted mother, Joanne, who raised me. It was my way of saying thank you for both of their sacrifices, and somewhere along the way, whilst trying to pay homage to my parents, I have, without knowing it inspired my children. What more could a father or an author want.

Did you create an outline for Sol before you started writing or did the character’s personality grow organically as you were writing?

Sol grew as the story progressed, both physically and mentally, but when I think about the first scribbled lines in my old notebook, I think Sol became a living, breathing person in his own world, but he is now so much more than I dreamt.

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

Hidden deep within the lines of this book, readers may spot the subtle theme of Dissociative amnesia, which is not something that is spoken about often, so the more I wrote, the more important it was for me to emphasize.

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

I’m currently working on another coming of age novel based on the memory of my best friend, who sadly died a few years ago. The story will be a young adult fiction that mixes key topics such as loss, grief, and mental health whilst following the protagonist on an adventure, or should I say a misadventure.

Finding the Oak Tree is a beautiful coming of age story. Love, loss, and loneliness give birth to a legend. A young boy who cannot remember his name emerges from nowhere and embarks on a quest of self-discovery.

A must-read chronicle filled with life lessons and bound with pearls of wisdom. Enter a world where anything is possible and lose yourself in a time forgotten by humanity where magic, mystery, and mayhem reign.

Once opened, this powerful book will be hard to put down. A story that will remain with you long after the pages have stopped turning.
