A Witch Hunter and Judge in Medieval times finds himself in the same situation as his now dead mentor, much to his horror and forces him to question his long held beliefs in a Mea Culpa document, buried for centuries. This short story ebook is also contained in, “Anthology of Evil” and is available as an audio book on Audible.com and iTunes. A continuation of the story, only about the researcher who found the document is contained in the book, “Death of Heaven” and titled, “Vaughan’s Theorem”.
How did you decide to create a trailer and what was your experience?
It just seemed like it needed to be done and other authors kept saying you needed to have one. So I looked into it, found Animoto and after some fitful starts, completed it. I enjoyed the process and have continued making trailers for the rest of my works in an ongoing fashion. As for the audio book version, I learned the Audacity audio processing software and that has led to all kinds of things, the more I learn about it. Overall, a very positive and educational experience.
What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
This short story just popped into my head one day back in college. A professor I had helped me a little with the history of it and after some research, it was completed and grew and grew over the years, nearly into a novel on the order of Stephen King’s, The Stand. Then I took it in another direction. Both of those died on the vine so to speak. Eventually, the story ended up in my, “Anthology of Evil.
I then ended up taking the external part about the researcher who “found” the document that had been buried beneath a Catholic church for centuries and which ruined the man’s career and lost him his wife and child in the end. That story ended up in “Death of Heaven”. But this is the original short story that all this came from.
Just this year I created the audio book format of this story and it is no available online.
I currently live across Puget Sound from Seattle on a couple of pleasantly forested acres.
I’ve survived (so far) a strange and wonderful life.
And so, I write….
I have had writing in my blood since childhood and bloody writing in my veins since college.
One could argue however that I wrote my first short speculative fiction story in 1970 in tenth grade, right after I read Frank Herbert’s seminal novel, Dune during a week out of school with bronchitis, on codeine cough medicine and while listening to Black Sabbath’s new Master of Reality album. That was a mind blowing week. As I had grown up watching Horror movies, perhaps from a bit too young of an age, it was only natural that I would be inclined to the Horror genre, as well as, intense science fiction and fiction works.
