More interviews! John Anthony Miller discusses In Satan’s Shadows

Interview questions about In Satan’s Shadows:

How much of the book is realistic and are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?

The book is solely a product of my imagination, but I think all authors leave threads of their lives in what they write – places they’ve been, people they know or see or have encountered. I got the idea for the first few chapters of In Satan’s Shadow while on holiday, standing on the German- Swiss border, staring at a winding stream. I thought – hmmm, what fun could we have with this stream, maybe a fugitive, followed by dogs and German soldiers – and off the story went.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

Yes, the message in In Satan’s Shadow is to never give up. The male character, Michael York, who is tasked with approaching Amanda, faces one obstacle after another, mental and physical, with success never quite within his grasp, but still he continues on.
