The Story behind the Story: The Origins of The Vatican Conspiracy

One of the most frequent questions I get about The Vatican Conspiracy is: Where did you come up with that idea? And though I read recently that many authors don't like to talk about where their ideas came from, this is decidedly not the case for me. In fact, Crimespree magazine invited me to write an article about it and I jumped at the chance. If you are interested, please click HERE and check it out. Crimespree is a great resource if you are interested. And here is the link to The Vatican Conspiracy's Amazon Page if you are interested in reading the book.

If you haven't read the book yet, give it a look. If you have, consider writing a review or rating the book, as these things help other readers discover the book. And thanks again for your enthusiasm and support; it is the best thing a writer can hope for.

Cheers, peter
