In this third installment of The Judas Chronicles, William Barrow (AKA Judas Iscariot) is faced with recovering the silver coin he dreads above all others. Known as the “Singing Coin” among the ancients, this shekel was originally lost long ago…on the very night of Jesus Christ’s arrest in Jerusalem. Hoping to save it for last, until after the other twenty-nine coins are recovered, Viktor Kaslow’s recent designs for the coin thwart William’s plan.
A new murder spree has begun for the ruthless Kaslow, who races against William and the immortal Roderick Cooley to obtain the coin from a reclusive Essene sect residing in the Bolivian Andes. But unlike William and Kaslow’s previous confrontations, this one involves many more outside interests, since this coin contains unusual properties. If it falls into the wrong hands, the entire world will be brought to its trembling knees….
The stakes have never been higher for William, his family, and the welfare of mankind. To stop Kaslow, William must rely on the help of Roderick, Alistair, and a host of others—both mortal and immortal—to have any hope of reclaiming blood coin number twenty-four before time runs out.

What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
If you are truly inspired to write for the love of writing, it is a great life. Success can be determined in so many ways, but the most meaningful definition (in my mind) is whether what you do truly lifts your soul and brings a smile to your face and those around you. If creating stories does that for you, then you already are quite successful. Honing your skills to get better and better will only open doors to greater success–but it all starts with what truly inspires you! 🙂

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This is the third installment of nine that detail the immortal Judas Iscariot (aka William Barrow) pursuing the final nine coins of thirty that were paid to him for betraying Jesus Christ. The original idea came from my good buddy, J.R. Rain, who was gracious to let me take it and run with it. I especially like the international aspects of the stories, along with the depth of history that is in each book. So far, the books have taken us to Dubai, Iran, Hong Kong, and in the latest book, Bolivia.
