Very Much Like A Journey

Lyman Ditson Author Interview

Desert Angels follows a man and his dog who meet a Slavic angel in the desert and are sent off on a mission where the path is unclear, and adventures await them. What was the inspiration for the setup to your story?

I have always been drawn to the concept of angels. I have also lived in different varieties of deserts. The mission feels very much like a journey similar to one I’ve taken in my life.

Did you plan the tone and direction of the novel before writing or did it come out organically as you were writing?

I wrote mostly by the seat of my pants except for the ending which I had in mind through most of the writing.

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

Exploration of the immortality narrative, self-centeredness vs. selflessness, and the discovery of a gift that was present all along.

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

I don’t have any plans for another book although that can change. I am in the process of starting a blog-type site.
