What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was inspired to write this book because nowadays short stories are becoming popular with readers. Readers love to read books while travelling or on the beach. Stories People Love was written for readers who can read one story, put it down, and come back to it to read another at any time. The book also has fictionalised real life experiences from which readers can learn valuable lessons.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My characters were chosen to match those in real life situations. Every character was carefully chosen after using an elimination process which I defined myself. Details of how to choose characters are laid out in my non-fiction book, How to WRite for Success.
They dragged her mercilessly out of the courthouse without giving her an opportunity to defend herself. The jeering crowds shouted, "Stone her! Stone her!" Her long blonde hair fluttered under the black veil she wore. Her blue eyes were glassy, and tears streamed down her face. She seemed disheveled, faint, and hungry. While the two men in military uniform tied her to a post in the courtyard, she did not flinch. One opened a scrolled parchment and read, “Matilda Joseph, you have been found guilty of committing a heinous crime. The penalty is death by stoning. “Turning to the crowd, he shouted, "Who wants to cast the first stone?"
A woman in the crowd, dressed from head to toe in black, holding a massive boulder in the air shouted, “I’ll cast the first stone. She deserves to die.” The sounds of sirens filled the air. The king’s chariot, followed by an entourage of horsemen rumbled through the ground and drew the attention of the crowd. Everyone turned around.
Dressed in purple robes embellished in gold, the king stepped down from his chariot. Affixing his bejeweled crown on his forehead, he stomped across the courtyard making a loud squeaky noise with his boots and went over to Matilda. The crowd shouted, “Long live King Solomon." After that, silence reigned.
Lifting her chin gently, he looked into her eyes and turned to ask the officers, “What is this woman accused of?”
Matilda’s sobbing increased.
The officers looked puzzled. They both bowed to the king simultaneously.
“What are your names?” the king asked.
"Your Majesty, I am Sam, and this is Tom."
"Tell me, Sam, what is this woman accused of?"
Sam began fumbling, “I don’t know Your Majesty.”
The king stamped his boots on the ground. "You don't know, and you are about to kill her?"
