Interesting Interview With Sci-Fi Thriller Author Kathy Forti

 

 

Who controls the truth provided by a powerful portal? A sci-fi thriller series (STACKS Library Of Truth) explores this concept and other powerful concepts in an exciting way. An interview with the author, whom I have the pleasure of representing, is below:

1.       Kathy, what is your debut novel, STACKS Library of Truth, about?  STACKS Library of Truth is a sci-fi thriller, with a little romance thrown in. It takes place in Washington, D.C.’s Library of Congress where young library employee, Zach Eldridge, accidentally opens up an interdimensional portal into a library within a library where all truth is stored on everyone and everything. Zach soon discovers this information is controlled by a powerful secret society that has used this knowledge to control humanity. When he attempts to expose their crimes, by becoming the “deep throat” to Washington TV reporter, Cali Cavaleri, the effects ricochet through the power denizens of the Nation’s Capitol causing mayhem and murder. The more Zach discovers about the Library of Truth, the deeper the rabbit hole gets, unearthing an even darker alien agenda at work.  

2.       What inspired you to pen this story? I had a dream a number of years back where I woke up in the middle of the night with the storyline for this book swimming around in my head, as well as the characters, and what to name it. I couldn’t get back to sleep until I started writing it down. As I wrote, it became more complex, spiraling into a trilogy book series.  It was a story that wanted to be told. I decided to do research in the real Library of Congress, interviewing the librarians and employees that worked there and I was hooked. No one had ever set a story of this genre inside the Library of Congress.  It seemed to me to be the perfect place to hide a Library of Truth.  

3.       Your prior book, Fractals of God: A Psychologist’s Near-Death Experience & Journeys Into the Mystical, sounds fascinating. What is it about? The book is about my own near-death experience in 2003 when my heart stopped and I went through the tunnel and saw the light everyone talks about. I thought I had died, but I was sent back and I was different after that experience.  I was suddenly obsessed with quantum physics and scientific data I had no prior knowledge of. This led to my inventing two holistic software programs based on mathematical algorithms and the science of fractals. Trinfinity8 and Ascension11 are currently used worldwide by practitioners to help aid in an individual’s healing and spiritual growth. The book details the five-year process it took to complete these programs and how the information was downloaded to me.  

4.       How do you share what happened to you without people wondering whether you are grounded in reality? The nature of reality is going to be different for everyone. Because of my near death, I’ve experienced reality on a number of different planes most people haven’t encountered.  I find reality to be very fluid and flexible. People often tell me how I manage to make the strangest stuff sound normal. It’s because I like to get people to think and remain open-minded to what we don’t understand.  The universe is not static. Every person is undergoing change—physically, emotionally, and intellectually. Of course, it does help to have a PH.D. after your name. They think you can’t be totally crazy.  

5.       You also lead tours to Egypt and are an explorer of ancient sites. What drew you to this?  Egypt brings one back to their ancestral roots. Much of pre-dynastic knowledge has been lost, hidden, or erased. After my near-death experience, I was led to Egypt where I delved into the Ancient Mystery School knowledge taught in the temples of learning and wisdom. I decided to keep going back and then share it with others who hungered for this type of esoteric knowledge. By nature, I am a very curious person and like to explore. I have found ways to access ancient sites which are off limits to the general public. I’ve been down under the Great Pyramid where there are water tunnels and a submerged sarcophagus. I’ve also crawled down a small hole under the Sphinx where tunnels once existed. Now I’m able to weave some of these unique elements into STACKS.  

6.       Amazingly, without a tech background, you developed the Trinfinity8, an energetic healing technology for health practitioners. What exactly is that and how did you go about creating it? Both the Trinfinity8 and Ascension11 technologies are the result of information that came to me after my 2003 near death experience.  With the help of one programmer who put it into computer language, I designed and developed all facets of the software program, without having any technical background whatsoever. I just suddenly knew how to do it. The programs use the science of fractals, mathematical algorithms for thousands of different substances, harmonic tones, and the unique distinction of delivering all this information through pure quartz crystal rods, connected into your computer. It’s considered to be very “Atlanetean” technology, only  in modern-day packaging. It’s gratifying to know that these other-worldly technologies are being used by practitioners worldwide to help aid in one’s healing and spiritual growth.  

7.       If you look at yourself from the eyes of the training you received as a clinical psychologist, how do you explain what happened to you?  I found you learn very little in graduate school about the real workings of the mind, body and spirit. Instead, you learn on the job. I had clients who remembered past lives, others who had multiple personalities, and those who saw and spoke with the dead. I listened and didn’t immediately diagnose them with some acute psychopathology. I learned a lot from them. They made me a better therapist. This is why it didn’t seem scary when I had my own near-death experience.  I heard unseen beings talking to me when I returned to my physical body and found my whole left side was paralyzed. They instructed me to relax while they reconnected feeling back into my body. Believe me, psychologists don’t necessarily like to hear voices in their head!  It was all about trust.  

8.       Were you pleasantly surprised to see Kirkus Reviews praise STACKS Library of Truth as “an often-compelling mystery that combines ancient knowledge, modern evil, and unlikely heroes?” One is always grateful and surprised when someone likes your work. I remember praying that the reviewer chosen would understand it. I believe this Kirkus reviewer did. Since this is Book 1 in a trilogy series, they didn’t necessarily know where I was going with it, but it drew them in. I was also happy to receive so many 5-star Amazon reviews from people I didn’t know.  One woman told me she cancelled going to a dinner party, because she couldn’t put the book down. Book 2 – STACKS Awakening Truth is an even wilder ride.  

9.       How would you describe your writing style?  I write as I think and talk. I’m not interested in over-description and/or flowery language.  I want a story that grabs me, is quick moving and I can’t put it down. STACKS reads like a movie script, with cliffhangers and scene breaks. I like it when books have something for everyone, which is why STACKS is multi-genre. Even the sex scenes are hot for those who like romance.  I think it’s really important to have interesting characters with real flaws, who are trying to rise above them.  This is where being a psychologist is invaluable. You know the psychopathology. I often tell people I may not be the best writer, but I know I’m a good storyteller, and that’s really key.  

10.   Which writers, if any, influenced you? Which books would you compare yours to? Since I’m not much of a sci-fi book reader, I’d have to compare it to television instead. The STACKS Truth Series is like The XFILES, but it takes it to the next level and beyond.  

11.   So, this thriller takes place behind the scenes of the Library of Congress. Why did you choose such a setting? I wish I could say I chose it, but really it chose me. When I had the dream where I saw the entire plot unfold, it was set in the Library of Congress, which I had never been to at the time. I had to go and check it out for myself and after I did there was no doubt in my mind it was the perfect venue for this STACKS.  The real Library of Congress is filled with masonic symbology, lots of Minerva statues, and an interesting history. Believe it or not, my dream told me to call the book’s secret society “Minerva”, and I had no idea about the Minerva theme at the real Library of Congress. I guess truth IS stranger than fiction.  

12.   You spent plenty of time at the Library of Congress – even accessing areas and interviewing people that are normally below the radar. What did you uncover in your research that was of such interest to you?  I knew it was imperative that I get first- hand experience of the Library of Congress to make it accurate and realistic—especially if any employee decided to read my book.  I spent a whole week there, poking my head into every department and asking questions about how things were done. This was one week before they shut down for Covid, so the timing was quite auspicious. I walked the underground tunnels to the cafes, and vendor rooms, and took copious notes.  Years ago, I started out as a researcher at CBS news in New York before becoming an associate producer.  If there is story information to be found, I’ll find it.  I also contacted the Head Librarian of the Main Reading Room and she took me through the closed stacks so I could get the feel of what my character would experience on a day-to-day basis. The public doesn’t get to go in the reference stacks. Had I not gone there I would never have seen how things are catalogued, stored, or how cold it is kept to preserve the manuscripts.  

13.   One aspect of your story involved the accidental opening of a dimensional portal where holographic records are contained on everyone and everything since time began. What would the world be like if such information existed?  Who’s to say it doesn’t already exist?  Many years before I wrote STACKS, a patient told me about their near-death experience where they went to a place in another world where they could study and read up on anything—and they didn’t want to leave. “Kind of like a Library of Truth?” I said.  That concept must have stuck in my head.  The ancients often refer to such depositories of knowledge as the Akashic Records. These “Records” have been written about in Hindu texts and old holy books. While I’ve never consciously seen them, I do believe they exist in another dimensional plane. 

14.   You used to live in California but now call Maui, Hawaii your home. How did such a beautiful and peaceful environment nurture the development of your world-at-risk thriller?  While the dream concept for STACKS came to me while living in Santa Monica, California, I wrote the first book while living in Prescott, Arizona, during the COVID years, when things slowed down and I finally had more time to write. Book 2 in the series was written in Maui, where I brought in many of the elements of the island, I was familiar with and wove them into the story. While I know how this trilogy series ends, there were times when I was writing where I had no idea where the plot element was going, but went with it. Then it all came together. I do believe I had some writing muses helping me. The story evolved so fast and I was writing 3-5 pages a day.  

15.   In playing on your book’s title, how far off are we from having a library free of lies, errors, and spin, where truth is ever present and undeniable? That’s a good question. I’m not sure we can accomplish that any time soon. Man has just not evolved to that higher stage of being yet (at least not on this dimension). But, we can always dream for a miracle.

Interview With Dystopian Christian Author Jason William Karpf, A 4-Time Jeopardy Champ

 

1. What motivated you to write your book, to force you from taking an idea or experience and turning it into this book?

The Deliverer is my second Christian sci-fi novel. As I approached age 60, I decided to return to the creative writing of my younger years, combining my lifelong love of science fiction with the Christian faith I declared in my forties. In 2021, I read an article about contract delivery drivers being monitored, graded, and fired by AI programs. This became the spark for The Deliverer. 

2. What is it about and who is it for?

The Deliverer takes place during Civil War II in 2038. Rich consumers pay armed delivery drivers to bring special purchases to their doors, pitting them against hijackers in livestream entertainment. The top driver is Bren Van Allen, known as The Deliverer, an evangelist who succeeds with ingenuity and mercy over body count. The Deliverer is for adult-level readers who like dystopian stories. Teens to seniors will appreciate the novel’s themes. 

3. What takeaways might the reader will be left with after reading it?

Today, we tap a screen and summon packages to our front porch. Who are the unseen people who make this possible? What do they endure so we can be satisfied customers? The Deliverer creates an accelerated world of e-commerce and combat, seen through the eyes of a believer. How would we as Christians act amid the temptations and terrors of an America torn apart? 

4. How did you decide on your book’s title and cover design?

Jesus and Moses are known as “the deliverer.” I decided a Christian delivery driver/celebrity would get such a nickname. Cover design was done by Derinda Babcock of Elk Lake Publishing. It resembles the posters and publicity materials generated for the protagonist in the story, with fiery clouds in the background representing the war and calamity of the setting. 

5. What advice or words of wisdom do you have for fellow writers?

Write frequently and fearlessly. Join writer communities for critiquing and support. Embrace marketing. If you can tell a story, you can market. 

6. What trends in the book world do you see -- and where do you think the book publishing industry is heading?

As a marketing professor, I see the book world transformed by technological and sociological changes affecting other industries. This creates tremendous opportunities for authors and publishers. We are no longer tied to the finite distribution channel of physical retail. Our books have indefinite shelf life (pun intended). Other forms of media have demonstrated similar shelf life for their content, giving authors precedent and encouragement to build an audience. 

7. What challenges did you overcome to write this book?

Writing is discipline. I had to generate ideas and produce pages while balancing the rest of my life. If you want it bad enough, the book will appear. 

8. How would you describe your writing style?

Twilight Zone and James Bond come to Jesus. 

9. If people can buy or read one book this week or month, why should it be yours?

If you’re a Christian who enjoys the Marvel Cinematic Universe and Star Wars, The Deliverer is your one-stop-shop for action, futurism, and faith. Have a great time combining Christianity and science fiction with my novel! 

About The Author: Jason William Karpf grew up with storytelling. The son of a screenwriter, he was a child actor guest starring on classic TV shows and is the author of the Christian sci-fi novel Brimstone 1 and the award-nominated novelette Basilica Obscura. He teaches for Christian universities across the country and plays bass and guitar in his church’s worship team. A history and trivia aficionado, Jason was a four-time champion on the game show Jeopardy. He lives in Minnesota with his wife, Ann. They are parents of three grown children.

Sick, Crazy, Injured, Dead = Book



Where do you go to create a great book? 

Is it a place or an event that inspires you? Or is it from a state of mind or an emotional moment that you are moved to pen a powerful story? Is your imagination, perhaps fueled by art and the writings of others, what transforms you into a writing machine? 

Do bad things have to happen to good people, so that enough pain and suffering will seed a good story? Does one need to be on an illegal drug high to see past the haze of routine and normalcy — and to write a book? Or must one be in mental anguish, suffering not from poverty or a traumatic event or a handicap, but just from their own body chemistry? 

Addiction and suicide, death and disability, racism and gender identity conflict. Are these the seeds to some of the ingredients of today’s popular stories? 

Just where does writing genius come from?

In the world of writing, is normalcy not valued?

Who gets attention? The one that is different.

Gay is in; straight is out. Black is in; white is out. The disabled, the incarcerated, the crime victim, the accident victim, the cancer patient… the list goes on. They all get attention in books. In fact, what I just stated was more true a few years ago. Now, you have to further distort things. The extremes need to go farther, and more unusual twists are needed to satiate the experienced, if not jaded, reader.

Everything is perverted. Our goal to spotlight what is different and unique somehow gets bastardized into being normalized.

Our writing is likely a product of one part DNA, one part training, and one part experience. Some stew of a combination of these elements dictates where our creativity comes from. There is an inverted ratio at work: the more crazy/crappy your life, the better the story you will tell. Nothing much comes from normalcy, mediocrity, and the ordinary.

For a book to succeed, the level of absurdity or normalcy needs to be elevated. Anything else is just blah, blah, blah.
