Why was writing PARALLAX VIEW so important to you?
I’ve always had a keen interest in American history, and wanted to write a fictional thriller that was historically based. I chose 1987 - late in the Cold War - because I lived through that era... (more)

Gordon Hooper is the author of “Alex and Katija, High and Mighty.” It was published on Amazon.com, November 6 2012, courtesy of Seattle publisher New Libri Press.
He tries to be offensive as often as humanly possible. When not – then he is most likely being semi-blackmailed by his publisher, who has a hell of a job in keeping us all out of jail and preventing the premises of New Libri Press from being torched. Contrary to his wishes he currently resides in the depressing little freeze box of Stockholm, Sweden. He was born on the wrong side of the Iron Curtain in 1977, but was imported... (more)
How has your upbringing influenced your writing?
When I was in high school, I read a collection of essays by E.B. White and was amazed by his tight, pithy style. It showed me that good writing was lean writing. Up until then, I had thought the more ornate, the better. But E.B. White and my teacher at the time, Harry Bauld, taught me that less is more. As an example of what a good teacher Mr. Bauld was, on the first day of class he said, “My name is an oxymoron; figure out what an oxymoron is.”
Do you recall how your interest in writing originated?
I was always reading... (more)
What inspired you to write your first book? The events that took place while I was the 2000 USA Baseball Olympic Team press officer. After the team won the gold medal, I knew I had something special to tell. I waited 10 years, to give the story time to marinate. What books have influenced your life the most? I like true stories re-told with in depth, behind-the-scenes details. John Feinstein does a great job of telling about how a great sporting event or championship happened, and going back to talk with the key athletes to get their side of the story in his books, so I tried to use that type...

What books have influenced your life the most?
So many… A question similar to this was recently asked of me. It prompted me to think back to the earliest memories I know are mine alone – not the false memories we generate from tales we’ve been told, but our true and most personal recollections. Such memories are almost invariably bound into powerful moments of understanding, or emotion. The earliest I have in this vein, are of the Doctor Seuss children’s books. In kindergarten, we were being force-fed a diet of drivel… along the lines of, “See Jack run. See Spot run. See Jack and Spot... (more)

What inspired you to write your first book?
SK: I've always had a fascination with words, maybe because my mother made me read the ChildCraft encyclopedias each and every summer. I had to read an hour every day, and that taught me discipline. I remember the pictures jumping off the page as I swung in the hammock. I began to daydream and concoct stories in my mind. My imagination would explode, and and I looked into the clouds, my creativity was awakened.
RK: My life experiences. I once heard a great quote from the Reverend T.D. Jakes: "Some of the greatest pains I have known have produced... (more)
