What is your book about? – If you like medieval fantasy, you will absolutely love my new book, Nephilim the Remnants. It is Christian fiction, a story of faith, betrayal, and sacrifice set in medieval times where the main characters are the descendants of the mighty Nephilim from biblical times -- supernatural beings believed to be half man and half fallen angel.
How did you come up with the idea for Nephilim the Remnants? – The Bible is where I first came across these beings known as the Nephilim. In Genesis 6:4, it says, “The Nephilim were on the earth in those days -- and also afterwards -- when the sons of God went to the women of men and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown.” The Nephilim are mentioned only a few times in the Bible but seem to have such an underlying presence. They seem to be linked to one of the reasons for the earth-wide flood in Genesis.
Is this your first book? If not, what else have you written? – Yes, Nephilim the Remnants is the first book I have written, and I am happy to report it has been receiving 5 star reviews. I am also currently working on my next book in the series.
Do you have any advice for aspiring writers? – Prayer and perseverance, prayer and perseverance, and then more prayer and perseverance. It takes a whole lot of prayer and perseverance.
Why did you choose to write a book in this genre? – I grew up with the fantasy fiction genre; it has always been my personal favorite. It’s the creativity and imagination that I love so much. However, most of the great stories that I have come to love in the fantasy genre have always seemed to be missing something -- true faith. So I wanted to bring fantasy and faith together to create a great story that did not sacrifice the imagination of fantasy or the truth of Christ’s salvation. And that is what Nephilim the Remnants is all about.
What makes your book different? – Nephilim the Remnants is truly a unique book in that I not only wrote the story, I also designed the book’s cover and illustrated the drawings that are displayed throughout the book’s pages. In the pages of Nephilim the Remnants, you will experience the whole scope of my vision for the story as the pictures come together to portray the ancient lands and their vivid characters.
Can you tell us about your upcoming book? – I am in the early stages of working on my next book. It will be a prequel about a legendary Nephilim dragon slayer who fights to put an end to the first dark ages.
