I feel that the truth is stranger than fiction. That maybe the reason that so many of my works revolve around actual historical events. Preparing for my third Novel, I'm doing all the historical research I can. The more research I do, the more excited I get around the story line. For instance, I had very little knowledge that the religious order the Knights Templar may, or may not, have been involved in the worship of a idol dubbed dubious by the church. The idol in question, Baphomet, is the driving idea behind the novel. This, and a host of other instances throughout history captures my attention like nothing else in the modern world. I'm also researching sacrificial practices by the Aztecs and the obscure rites of many elitist groups, such as the free masons.I have to say that in a strange way I'm very thankful for such morbid historical facts. I mean, without them I would have nothing to write about.
