It’s been in the back of my mind for nearly a year now. So don’t be surprised if you see a World War 2 book coming in 2015. It’s always been an obsession of mine. When I look at the picture above, I see a lot of folks and a lot of stories. As a child, it was all about the cool chests that you could order by mail. They were filled with floor maps, toy soldiers and military equipment. As I grew older, my interest shifted to the details of such a large-scale war. Why it happened in the first place? How could so many countries be involved to the point of war?
As most of you already know, I’ve been writing science fiction since 2011. I plan to continue that as well, though this last week has been eye-opening for me. As I’ve rested with a serious case of the flu, I’ve thought about World War 2 a lot. Enough to make me want to invest time into it. I feel like I have to. So tonight I’ll celebrate the birth of 2015. Tomorrow morning, I’ll wake up in 1939 and begin working on a set of characters that may just be the greatest I’ve ever written.
