Part Two of my interview with American Journal

As promised, American Journal published the second part of my interview about the book. Visit American Journal to read the whole thing but here is a little taste:

DD: “No wonder so many critics have called your book a creative, compelling read! Inevitably though, it’s impossible to please everyone. You have a genuine regard for Sarah Palin, which is why you made her Secretary of State in the novel in the year 2412. Yet some of her most ardent supporters didn’t like the idea that she asks for advice from Nikola Tesla in Step Two. Can you explain?”

SA: “Yes. To me, Palin is a rare politician in what I call the End Days because she has a real desire to help everyday people. She also rejects the idea of a permanent political class exerting control over everyone. And her amazing record speaks for itself, although in the novel I am very specific about her many accomplishments. Nikola Tesla discusses them in Part Two when the souls of Palin and the eleven other world leaders who comprise the ‘Salvation Twelve’ end up in heaven after a terrorist attack. I don’t know why anyone would have a problem with that because I selected Palin thanks to her strong character and integrity. In the novel, Moses makes it very clear that God is very pleased with every member of the Salvation Twelve, which also includes the fictional Israeli Prime Minister, Eyal Grad. Palin is very supportive of Grad in the aftermath of Israel’s isolation and the two of them share a warm, cordial and professional relationship. At this point, Eyal Grad has been an innovator himself for Israel, implementing many commonsense policies that have created wealth for individuals, improved every citizen’s quality of life and stopped the jihad in their country. That’s why Grad leads the way to Salvation once the characters wake up from their comas and return to earth.

“I’ve always admired Nikola Tesla for being a man driven by his spiritual nature, not his animal nature. His contributions to making life better on earth must be acknowledged. It just made sense that he and Palin would talk about the future of energy in the afterlife. So I’m sorry if any of Sarah Palin’s supporters don’t like my characterization which is very positive.”

Thank you, American Journal.
