Interview with Anthony S. Policastro on Absence of Faith

Q. Where do you get your ideas for a book?

ASP: Iím always thinking of what ifs. What if a plane going overhead suddenly crashed on a busy interstate during rush hour? What would that be like? What if someone launched a program on the Internet that caused people to change how they thought of a certain group of people?

I guess this goes back to my curiosity as a kid. I was always interested is how things work, what makes them work and why they do the things they do. I still have that curiosity.  I like to push the envelope and see what happens, and then I know how and why things work the way they do. One of my favorite web sites is How Stuff Works. Sometimes I think that site was made for me. (More)

Interview by Wendy Burt - The Query Queen
"I want to tell a story that helps people live more meaningful lives - a story that enables them to better understand the problems facing everyone. A lot of writers write for themselves and there is nothing wrong with this because what they write sometimes helps all of us. I always write with the reader in mind and what they will get out of my work." (More)
