Interview with Author Glen Aaron

The Curse of Sacerdozio:
Conspiracy in the Judiciary

Glen Aaron is an experienced trial lawyer and international business and banking consultant. He has an English degree from Baylor University and a JD from the University of Texas. Please see: and 

1. What really inspired you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and conveying it into a book?
Justice Antonin Scalia died in 2016 on a Texas ranch retreat down by the Rio Grande. I saw this occurrence as an opportunity to write a murder mystery. Moreover, as a lawyer, I never agreed with Justice Scalia's judicial philosophy. Thus, the opportunity to express an opposing view through my protagonist, Tommy Jon.

2. What is it about and whom do you believe is your targeted reader?
A Supreme Court Justice is found dead, floating face down in a hot mineral pool on the Texas ranch retreat, Indian Hot Springs. His clerk, Tommy Jon, the first Jicarilla Apache to graduate Harvard and clerk at the Supreme Court is the FBI target suspect for murder. Readers of the Wall Street Journal, NY Times, Washington Post, Time magazine, etc. are the targeted audience.

3. What do you hope will be the everlasting thoughts for readers who finish your book? What should remain with them long after putting it down?
There are powerful political forces at work in any judicial appointment. That judges bring with them the influences of their life experiences, religion and political philosophy that bend their judicial opinions and decisions.

4. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers?
Research your subject matter well, whether your genre is fiction or nonfiction.

5. What trends in the book world do you see and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?
While traditional publishing will always be with us, it is slow and bureaucratic. Independent publishing allows the author to get the book published quickly and get on to his/her next inspiration.

6. What great challenges did you have in writing your book?
My main challenge was creating within the reader the feeling of attraction and love between the two Sacerdozio clerks, Tommy Jon and Catherine Welch.

7. If people can only buy one book this month, why should it be yours?
My book is not only a tantalizing murder mystery, it is also a disclosure of how Supreme Court Justices are appointed and the potential evil influences that exist in the process.

“To write is to put one’s obsessions in order.”
--Jean Grenier, Albert Camus

“Obscenity is whatever happens to shock some elderly and ignorant magistrate.”
--Bertrand Russell, in Look magazine (23 Feb. 1934)

“Poetry is often a mirror to the condition of a nation’s culture.”
--Saunders Lewis, ‘Diwylliant yng Nghymru’
