The Final Eight Seconds follows a man in the hospital who has to examine his life and choices before a committee in the afterlife. I think this original idea is intriguing. How did you come up with this idea and develop it into a story?
Some years ago, I heard the expression “Each of us are born into this world with a specific destiny, even though we may never know what it is.” This idea has stayed with me, and eventually I had to write about it.
What were the morals you were trying to capture while creating your characters?
Kindness, generosity, loyalty, honesty, helpfulness. While the characters were far from perfect, they were basically “good” guys.
What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?
Choices. The protagonist usually acted instinctively, which caused him to often make wrong choices and to lose the only woman he ever loved. However, ultimately destiny (his? hers?) brought them together.
What is the next book that you are working on, and when will it be available?
My next book explores reincarnation. It will be at least one year before it is ready.
