FBI Ghosts: Church of the Fallen- Interview with Jeremy Szekely POS-10

“When I got into writing, it was more about having a way to release creativity. The fact I can share it with the world is what fascinates me.”  Jeremy Szekely

The author of the book, Jeremy Szekely, began writing while he was in high school. Comic book writing was his passion, and he discovered that he could write stories without having to illustrate them. His comic book characters and stories were also centered around characters who were part of the history of the occult and Christianity.

During the interview, he explains the research that he completed while creating this story. Jeremy wanted this story to be based upon actual events that would make the story more intriguing. What would happen if an angel who was also a human existed today? How would society treat them?

Jeremy commented that a storyteller should develop a good story that has likable characters who grow and change throughout the story. Plus, the story should be grounded in reality. The hardest obstacle that Jeremy faced while writing his book is having to kill off a character. When authors create characters, they become attached to them, and it is almost like having a friendship with them.
