Please tell us a bit about your book: Beyond Justice - characters, plot, etc.
In Beyond Justice, through Samuel Hudson we explore the depths of human character when his worst nightmares become a reality. His wife and daughter brutally raped and murdered, his son beaten and left for dead. And on top of all that, he becomes the primary suspect. This is for sure a legal/crime thriller but it also reaches at the core of one’s belief system. The most powerful themes in this story are loss, redemption, forgiveness and justice.
If you could meet, in person, any of your characters, who would it be and why?
I’d probably like to meet the protagonist, Sam Hudson. Sam’s not pretentious and doesn’t struggle to hide his imperfections. He’s real about his convictions and you don’t have to wonder what he’s thinking behind a polite veneer. You might not like everything he has to say, but you’ll always know where you stand with him. He’s overcome some of the worst imaginable tragedies and become a stronger person for it. God forbid I ever have to go through what he did, I would hope to develop the character he does in this story.
