What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
The idea behind this series is that an active older person can still get into trouble and have high adventures even while dealing with the ultimate challenge of all…getting older. In this series, the main character is an active sailor, is intellectually curious and willing to take on challenges to help others or to right wrongs.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Harry Morgan is based on me, partially reality, partially a fantasy. The others in the series are simply characters designed to fulfill particular roles in the story.
Excerpt from Chapter 2 of Collegial Conspiracy:
“That’s the good part,” answered Wiley. “Banks. Robbing banks is the creme de la creme of robbery. Only the best for Wiley Middleton. My mama always taught me to aim high.”
“You’re nuts, Wiley. You’re so nutty your nuts are nuts! Why do you want to rob banks?”
“I told you why.”
“No, Wiley. Why banks in particular?”
“Because that’s what Bonnie and Clyde robbed. It’s sexy.”
“Hell no, it’s not sexy; it’s dangerous. Besides, Clyde Barrow’s thing was gas stations and grocery stores, not banks.”
“They robbed a bunch of banks,” Wiley protested.
“No, Wiley, everybody thought they robbed a bunch of banks because that made fancy glamorous news stories, but mostly it was gas stations and grocery stores. It was pretty low rent and not glamorous at all.”
Wiley smirked. “Well, Harry, if you know so much, how’d they kill all those cops?”
“The cops were outgunned and trying to catch them. What did they expect, taking on automatic rifles with revolvers? How do you expect to go about robbing a bank, anyway?”
“That’s easy. The textbook method is to walk in, pull a gun, make everybody lie on the floor, then hand a note to a teller to dump the contents of the cash drawers in a bag.”
“Yeah, you know, the classic method,” said Wiley.
