One thing I fervently believe about fictional books is that they provide a powerful way to educate and inform people about the world we live in. As novelists, we can hide behind our fictional characters as closet activists. Difficult social problems can be introduced in fiction through the lives of our imaginary characters to help arouse empathy in readers for opposing views of important issues.
Salisbury, MD (Vocus) May 19, 2010
Author David Hearne was delighted to be interviewed by veteran Newsman Bill Reddish of WICO 1320 radio of Salisbury, MD. The interview will be aired May 20th 2010 on WICO’s Morning Show. David Hearne is the author of the novel, “Hulagu’s Web – The Presidential Pursuit of Senator Katherine Laforge.” The book tells the story about a Texas Senator who is targeted for assassination by numerous adversaries because she is seriously attempting to make changes to the political landscape. Some even feel she is a clear and present danger to the age-old bastion of men at the helm of the United States. Book reviewer Kristine Morris of ForewordMagazine.com described David Hearne’s book, “Hulagu’s Web-The Presidential Pursuit of Senator Katherine Laforge", as "a ripping good political thriller.”
During his appearance on Reddish’s show, Hearne will talk about how his novel under the guise of entertainment, investigates issues of importance, including the motivation behind Islamic terrorism, the corruption of American politics – including the buying of congress by oil interests, the attitude toward women in positions of power, and the deliberate bungling of efforts to move America to green energy.
Bill Reddish who is known for his tumultuous interviews with Maryland politicians strives to balance his show with occasional appearances of various authors. His interviews include authors such as Dean Koontz and Vince Flynn to name a couple. Author David Hearne stated: “Vince Flynn’s fast moving political thrillers are some of the best crafted novels written by a contemporary author and along with Barbara Kingsolver rank at the top of my favorites list.”
David continues, “One thing I fervently believe about fictional books is that they provide a powerful way to educate and inform people about the world we live in. As novelists, we can hide behind our fictional characters as closet activists. Difficult social problems can be introduced in fiction through the lives of our imaginary characters to help arouse empathy in readers for opposing views of important issues.”
Author David Hearne currently lives in Lumberton, TX with his wife and daughter. He is the author of numerous magazine articles and a previous non-fiction book. His new novel titled “The Christmas Special” is scheduled for release in the fall. It is a thought provoking political thriller revolving around a series of Christmas morning terrorist attacks. Beside the death and destruction wrought by these attacks, the selected day of execution could darken the sacred celebration of Christ’s birth for years to come. The spellbinding novel weaves together current events with fiction creating a sobering reality of an event whose actual occurrence is unfortunately probable.
Hearne’s politically controversial novel “Hulagu’s Web – The Presidential Pursuit of Senator Katherine Laforge” is available on Amazon.com and other venues.
