Paul, how did you come up with the title for your book? Does it have any special meaning?
I literally spent months trying to come up with just the right word, phrase or whatever would work. I had written down pages of ideas, but nothing stuck with me for more than a day or so. One weekend, I holed up in a house on the coast and threw around ideas the whole weekend. It wasn’t until I was driving home that Wings to Redemption hit me and struck a cord. I waited a few days and it still held. It really fits the whole story. It’s perfect.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Benjamin Hunter—definitely. Ben is a guy who is simplistically complex; he found a way to use the demons of his past to build true character and a real sincerity that is appreciated by all those around him.
Does your book have any underlying theme, message, or moral?
Lots of people keep past mistakes or personal demons bottled up and fail to confront them—big mistake. Redemption is a powerful and complex word, yet it’s available to us all.
What would/could a reader or reviewer say about this book that shows they “get” you as an author?
If a reader feels they were in the center of a stage watching the action and they could reach out and touch the character and feel their emotions, then they “get” what I am trying to present.

“Move over Baldacci, there’s a new kid in town!” I nearly collapsed when I read that. Baldacci’s one of my absolute favorites.
