|What if? That's a good start...|
A person can not write without wondering what they are writing about. Sounds confusing but in reality it is not. If we all knew the answers to everything then there wouldn't be anything to write or read. It is the job of researching to see if knowledge can be gained to satisfy the quest. Some of the answers are welcomed and some are not - but that is life.
That insatiable appetite for wanting more is what makes a writer, researcher, explorer and reader continue on their quest. To learn what they may not have known before.
What would be the reason for libraries or museums if that were not true?
As is the case of John's 3rd novel, Operation Scorpion, being released by Black Opal Books on January 14th, 2017.
|Author busy researching his next work!|
Though Operation Scorpion is a work of fiction it still depicts a sense of reality and what if questions. Would a rogue military officer truly hide nuclear waste under the very noses of his commanders? Would that same officer consider selling the waste material to terrorist groups planning harm to the United Stated? Would an ex-cop turned private detective accidentally stumble onto this evil mission and dissolve it while all the time being a patsy for a federal officer under ground?
These are the questions J asked himself while writing his newest novel. Hopefully the work will suffice in answering those same questions for the readers.
