Today, Kevin is a guest on Lena Nelson Dooley's blog, A Christian Writer's World: Characters Who Grip Your Heart! They did interviews on the first three books of the Blake Meyer Thriller Series. last year, and you can find them in the Blog Archive section in the right sidebar, located in April and May of 2018.
Now, we celebrate the release of Book 4, When the Clock Strikes Fourteen! So, grab a glass of whatever you prefer, have a seat in your favorite chair, and enjoy the perspective of Kevin's little Christian writer's world.
Welcome back, Kevin. What are some of the spiritual themes you like to write about?
When I write fiction, I like to have an overarching theme (sometimes two) that covers the story from cover to cover. For The Serpent’s Grasp, it was the question of “What is Truth?” I looked at this from a scientific perspective as it relates to creationism versus evolution. One of the main characters, Dr. Evelyn Sims, wrestles with this dilemma as a Christian in the world of science, dominated by evolutionary theory, throughout the book.
For my Blake Meyer Thriller Series, it’s the question of “What is True Peace?” Blake has spent his life “protecting and serving” his country in various ways to make sure all Americans can live in peace. However, as his personal world gets turned on its head, he starts to see how peace can never be had through guns and laws and wars and alliances. He’s got to look somewhere else to find true peace, and his friend, Harrison Kelly, will help him in the end “get his God thing” going.
In my upcoming standalone novel, The Letters, it deals with the topic of abortion, but it’s more about how interwoven the physical and spiritual worlds are around us…much more than we tend to think or believe, even as Christians.
