On Writing and Reading...

What do you love most about being a writer?
Having written. The writing process is sometimes overwhelming, but I really do love it when a project is finished, edited and ready to hit the shelves. That's a tremendous feeling.

Q: Tell us a little about yourself.

DP: I'm an army brat by birth. I have a degree in Broadcasting and spent 14 years on Radio and TV. I've been in the full-time ministry for 21 years. I am terminally in love with the game of baseball!

Q: Where did the idea for the novel originate? What research was required in terms of understanding Gordon's experience inside and outside of prison?

MMM: I was fascinated by the idea of culpability and guilt. How does so ordinary and decent a man as Gordon Loomis become involved in a murder and then how does he live with the consequences? How does he rationalize the wrong? Can he return to any kind of normal living? Beyond the nuts-and-bolts research, I did what a novelist does, I put myself in Gordon Loomis's head and heart.
