For the folks at home, could you tell us a bit about yourself?
I am financial executive who has extensively studied prophecies, religions, relics, and the esoteric. I am originally from Chicago and love its architecture. I wanted to be a trader and I eventually wound up on the floor of the Chicago Board of Trade.
What compelled you to write about the Templars and Christ’s return?
Current world events inspired this story. The headlines read like the prophesized End Times. With everything going on in the world today, it is a possibility that we are living in the End Times. I wondered what if it was true? How might the Second Coming happen?
What if the Templars had never disbanded but had gone into hiding in order to fulfill their mission?
What do you feel The Return brings to the table that’s different from other books in this genre?
Most books about the End Times are either too religious, neglect the possibility of the Templars, or are just plain unrealistic. A lot of people actually think that Christ is just going to pop out of the sky. I take a more practical approach.
And, I drew upon rare, ancient, secret prophetic records in my possession that I had been trying to make sense of for years.
Did any of your research surprise you?
The most surprising thing was how many of theses prophesies began to mesh with one another the more I studied them.
What are you working on for the future?
It is a sequel to The Return and is about young Laz growing up. As the second book in the series, it is about Laz realizing why He is here. There will be another book that addresses His entry into the world and fulfilling end time prophecies.
