A pre-requisite to reading this book should be to first read “The Naked Society” by Vance Packard, which was published in 1964. The state of our society was in fact much worse than Vance Packard portrayed, and in every way, should be more appropriately described as “The Torn Society.” Even five years before the publication of Vance Packard’s book, a turn in the way that people in our society were treated deviated from a normal respect of human rights into the proliferation of a philosophy to make humans available for the exploitation of other humans, namely the so called “upper crust” of society. The tools for achieving this would be modern technology. Our society cannot have peace because it is in conflict with itself, torn by tyranny from within. It is our society, The American Society, The Torn Society. To come to grips with this, the people and leaders of this society need to see what they have become. Fortunately, the angels in heaven saw that the demise of the human race would transpire if The Torn Society would be allowed to run its course. So they sent something to correct that course – their eyes.
This Book is not for the faint-hearted. This book deals with several mature and serious issues. Will the “Torn Society” make the appropriate changes to become a better society? These are some of the many questions this book seeks to answer.

Thank you for joining us today at Red Headed Book Lover! Please tell us more about yourself.
More about myself is a long story. I could write a few books about myself. Maybe the best I can do here is give you a summary about myself. I’ve traveled all over the world. I have had at least 2 careers. Now I am semi-retired and decided writing novels is a career that I would like to engage in. I love writing. I write more than I read, and I’ve been doing that my whole life. People that have known me personally know that some of my letters are more like essays or short stories. Since I have traveled well, I gained great perspectives from various views of the world.
Could you please tell us readers about your book and what inspired you to write your book?
A number of things inspired me to write “Angels’ Eyes.” The Carla Shalah character in the book is based on a real life person that is dealing with problems caused by the agency she once worked with. Reading “Naked Society” by Vance Packard was also an inspiration for this book. I also noticed a few things in real life that reinforced the dangers that are warned about in Naked Society.
What would your advice be for aspiring writers?
Keep writing. Write down your ideas when you think of them. You will be able to put them together for a plot or passage later.
In your opinion, what is the most important thing about a book?
The most important thing about a book depends on what kind of book it is. For Angels’ Eyes, I think one of the most important things was suspense. Another important thing is plot. When writing Angels’ Eyes, it was very useful to know what the ending was going to be so that the plot and moments could be written in anticipation of the ending.
What is your writing process like?
I devote at least 2 solid hours 5 days a week to writing. AT LEAST!!! Devoting time to write is important. When I sit down to write, I don’t always know what I am going to write. But, I have a list of ideas! So, I’ll look at my ideas and start writing on something. Then, while I am writing, I may start thinking about ways to make other portions better. I have this phone app named “Out of Milk.” It has a section where you can have “To DO” lists. I use the To Do Lists to jot down ideas for future books. I like keeping all my ideas.
What kind of research do you do, and how long do you spend researching before beginning a book?
I engage in all sorts of research. One of the best areas of research is listening to other people. I am so thankful for the Internet! The Internet makes tons of research so easy. Don’t forget about libraries. Not everything is on the Internet. Then there is self-research. Thinking about something that happened in the past may help to remember what it was like in that experience. Other details may be recalled as you re-live an experience. You can also use this method to imagine what it would have been like to go through someone else’s experience.
Do you have a set schedule for writing, or do you only write when you feel inspired?
Yes, I have a set schedule. Getting started will help you get inspired.
Do you read much and if so who are your favorite authors?
I spend more time writing than reading. However, I not only read books, but I read news, technical reports, science jornals and such. I spend my time relaxing by watching something like news, history, science, or a police story on television, while simultaneously reading the same kind of material on the internet.
Lastly, when can we readers expect to read more wonderful books from you?
I expect my next book to be finished in the Fall of 2020. It took me 5 years to write Angels’ Eyes. There was a little dry spell in there, but when you read the book, you will see how much I put into the book to make all the themes come together in the end. I hope to do the same kind of thing in my next book. It will take some extra effort on my part, but I’m sure you will enjoy it even more than Angels’ Eyes. If you do some research, you can get a clue about my next book. Maybe you can even guess what the title will be.
