Jack Estes volunteered to fight a war in a faraway country he couldn't even locate on a map. He was a kid, eighteen years old. Married, broke, flunking out of college-and about to become a father. The Marines seemed like a good way out. He figured the Nam couldn't be any worse than home. He was wrong. Publishers Weekly says "Chilling...It tells how a youngster from Portland, Oregon matured in the crucible of combat...The reader is given a sense of what it's like to fight an unseen enemy who might appear anytime, anywhere and start shooting from ambush." Karl Marlantes, New York Times best selling author of "Matterhorn" calls "A Field of Innocence", "Powerful ...and riveting." Tim O'Brien, New York Times best selling author of "The Things They Carried" says, "With its raw realism and heartbreaking honesty...one of the finest Vietnam memoirs."

Author Interview for "Born in Space: Unlocking Destiny"

Jeremy Clift

What inspired you to write Born in Space: Unlocking Destiny?

"Born in Space" is set in a not-too-distant future where Earth is becoming unlivable and humanity has expanded into space in search of new resources and habitats. The novel delves into complex family dynamics, particularly mother-daughter and father-daughter relationships, and examines how the vastness of space and the passage of time affect these bonds. The mother is a biologist, who grapples with doubts and guilt about her career choices and their impact on her family. The story follows the daughter, Teagan Ward, who claims seven test-tube babies created in a space lab as her own. The claim sparks a battle against a powerful mining corporation and an unscrupulous doctor hoping to populate the planets. This conflict, focused on strong female characters, explores themes of sacrifice, romance, and redemption against the backdrop of interstellar politics and corporate greed.

Incorporating strong female characters was a deliberate decision to challenge the traditional male-dominated narratives in science fiction and to craft a story that resonates with a diverse audience. By exploring these intricate relationships and the personal struggles of the female characters, I hope to portray their experiences as both powerful and deeply human, making them relatable and inspiring to all readers.

Can you talk about the seven infants in your story?

My aim was to create a Sci-fi series, because I learned from attending various writers’ conferences that this was the way to go. Stand-alone books were less easy to market. The seven infants open the way to a common storyline and additional books. Even if we do not follow all seven, we can look at some combination of them, with different themes. The seven are central to the plot, representing hope and the future of humanity. The next book is about the mother’s seeds of life project. These babies were created through advanced biotechnology, and Teagan Ward, the protagonist, claims them as her own, sparking a battle with a ruthless mining corporation and the unethical doctor in charge of the program. The infants symbolize the potential for new beginnings and the lengths to which a mother will go to protect her children, although it’s not certain that Teagan is the real mother.

Author Interview: The Sneeze Collector

  

https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/139997761X/

What inspired you to write about a Sneeze Collector?

The moment you need to sneeze and then it goes away. That frustrating feeling could be completely different if you realised it didn’t just go away, it was stolen! 

How did you come up with the character of Summer?

Impatient, curious, a good heart and an urge to complete any mission he starts. He’s not too unlike myself.

Can you share more about the mysterious man only Summer can see?

This is the sneeze collector, a large and ominous-looking figure. Is he dangerous? Or could he be a hero in disguise?  One thing is for sure, he loves hot chocolate!  

What are some of the crazy inventions in the book?

Invisibility is a big thing, a good sneeze collector won’t get very far if he or she is walking around in plain sight. And how do you collect the sneezes? And where do you store them? These all need clever inventions too.

You included performing pigeons and terrifying tigers; why these animals?

There’s a lot more animals in the book. But I chose to highlight these. Alphonso the pigeon is very talented and has quite a big role! And the twin tigers ‘Thunder and Lightening’ make their presence felt in only the way two terrifying tigers could!

The book has bullies; how do these characters add to Summers adventure?

Ben, Summer’s school bully is not a nice person. Every time Summer tries to make progress Ben seems to be in his way. Can Summer finally get his revenge? He’s going to have to be inventive! 

What was your favourite part of writing this story?

The beginning, seeing it start to grow and blossom. I enjoyed finding solutions when I become stuck at certain sections, that seems to happen when I’m in the shower! For some reason. I liked developing the characters and I truly love the ending! Why? You know there’s one way to find out ;)

How do you hope kids will feel after reading your book?

I sincerely hope they enjoy the story and it’s entire journey. And I also hope that for the rest of their days, whenever they feel the need to sneeze but it just goes away, they will think did it really go away or was it… the sneeze collector!   

Are there any real-life lessons you want your readers to learn from The Sneeze Collector?

Life is tough, we all need a helping hand now and again, you don’t have to do it all alone.

            And don’t be so quick to judge people, everyone is going through something, they might be                    hero in disguise.
