Interview with Sampson Perry

Me: Good morning and thank you for coming out to interview with me today. Why don’t you start by telling us your name?
Character: No problem. My name is Sampson Perry.
Me: What do you do for a living, Mr. Perry?
Character: Well, I work in Military Intelligence. That’s about all that I can say for the rest is classified and frankly you don’t have the need to know. [He sits back and takes a sip of his latte.]
Me: I see. So you can’t be a little more specific? The Intelligence field involves many different things.
Character: Sure, I could tell you but then I’d have to kill you. [He laughs wholeheartedly.] Besides, I’m sure that you don’t have the proper clearance.
Me: Well, actually I do have a TS SBI security clearance, which is one of the highest clearances that you can obtain. Besides, who am I going to tell?
Character: [He looks at me oddly as though he’s trying to size me up.] Alright then, I’m an Intelligence Analyst. Basically I take all the information that has been gathered from various sources and create reports to be delivered to the President of the United States.
Me: Very impressive. So is that what you do for Operation Dark Angel?
Character: [He shifts nervously in his chair. He looks around the room as though he’s looking for something. He lowers his voice to barely above a whisper.] Who told you about Operation Dark Angel? That’s classified information. Even the President does not have the proper security clearance for that information.
Me: Can you answer the question, Sampson?
Character: I don’t know what you are talking about. Next question please.
Me: Ummm, alright. Where are you from?
Character: [He seems to relax a little bit.] I was born in Irvington, New Jersey.
Me: Really? I have family there.
Character: Yes, but I haven’t lived there in quite a few years.
Me: Where are you currently residing?
Character: I am temporarily living in Pembroke, Georgia.
Me: Temporarily?
Character: Yes, I am just staying here while I work on a project on Fort Stewart.
Me: So where do you call home?
Character: Washington D.C.
Me: What do you like to do for fun? Do you have any hobbies?
Character: I enjoy going to see a good action movie. I like mud bogging, motocross, hunting, fishing, boating and hockey.
Me: How do you like working with President Nicolaitanes Balac?
Character: [He eyes me suspiciously.] Did Rosalind tell you something? Are you trying to get me to say something against Nicolaitanes?
Me: You’re acting very suspiciously. No to both of your questions.
Character: Well, I enjoy working with President Balac. It is an experience of a lifetime. [He stares down at his hands as he says this.]
Me: Is there something about President Balac that you don’t particularly like? [I lean forward in my seat.]
Character: I really can’t answer that. You have no idea what Nicolaitanes is like. What am I doing here? If he finds out that I’m here talking to you about this………….[His voice trails off. He stares into empty space. His hands start to tremble.]
Character: I think that I’d better go now. Thanks for having me. [He quickly gathers his things and hurries out of the door.]

Interview with Nicolaitanes Balac

Me: Good morning and thank you for coming out to interview with me today. Why don’t you start by telling us your name?
Character: But of course, my name is Nicolaitanes Ignatius Balac. [He flashes a smile.]
Me: Please tell us a little about yourself.
Character: Well, I was born and raised in Rome, Italy. I am a direct descendent of Roman Emperor Nero Germanicus. I am currently the President of Italy.
Me: Very impressive, Nicolaitanes. May I call you Nicolai for short?
Character: I suppose. [He fidgets in his seat before crossing his legs.]
Me: Thank you, Nicolai. Where you always in politics before becoming President?
Character: No, I actually own and run an architectural design company. We design everything from custom homes to extravagant office buildings.
Me: That’s interesting. So how did you get from architecture to politics?
Character: I have always been interested in the political field. So when I was offered the position of President I was honored.
Me: Offered the position of President. Don’t you mean that you killed the previous President so that you could become President? [Wipes the little beads of sweat off of my forehead. All of the little hairs on the back of my neck rise up.]
Character: [He laughs maniacally.] You should really be careful of saying such things. [He leans in towards me menacingly.] Besides, if I am capable of such atrocities who’s to say that you will get out of here alive. Hmmm.[He sits back in his chair and glances down at his watch.] But I will allow you to live as you amuse me. [He’s quiet for several minutes.] Yes, I killed President Adamo Ricci. The man was pathetic.
Me: But wasn’t he your friend?
Character: [He snickers.] I wouldn’t exactly say that we were friends, more like acquaintances. He outlived his usefulness.
Me: Wow, if you treat your friends like that I would hate to see what you do to your enemies. [The room is deathly quiet for a moment. I look to see how far the nearest exit is just in case I need it.]
Me: Well, let’s move on. [I take a deep breath and slowly let it out.] So why did you want to become President? Did President Adamo Ricci not do a good enough job?

Character: Honestly, he did a wonderful job with Italy. The only thing is that he didn’t have a big enough vision of what all he could do to help the people of Italy. I on the other hand, have great plans in store for Italy.
Me: Really. Can you elaborate?
Character: Well, I could tell you but then I would have to kill you. [He laughs.] Relax, I’m just kidding around. I don’t intend on remaining President long, I have much bigger plans in store. I’m going to not only save Italy but I am going to save the entire world.
Me: You’re going to save the entire world? From what exactly?
Character: From complete and utter destruction. We are at war you know. You silly humans are going to destroy each other and the earth if I don’t intervene.
Me: [I lean forward in my seat confused.] Wait a minute, what do you mean you silly humans? Aren’t you also a man?
Character: [He grins from ear to ear.] Oh, I’m sorry. It was a simple slip of the tongue. I mustn’t get ahead of myself. Forget I said anything.
Me: [I look at him strangely but keep my thoughts to myself.] You are already so successful in life, Nicolai. What more could you possibly want?
Character: Why to be ruler of the entire world of course. Who wouldn’t want to be? Imagine the possibilities. If I were in control of the entire world, we would not be in the predicament that we are in currently.
Me: [rolls eyes] Another lunatic trying to take over the world.
Character: Pardon me? What did you just say? [He looks at me with pure hatred emanating from his eyes.] [I start to get up and ease towards the door. Perhaps I should not have said that last thing out loud.]
Me: [My heart is pounding now and I’m trying to calm my nerves while I walk a little closer to the door.] I have one last question for you Nicolai. What are your views on God and how does He fit in with your daily tasks as President?
Character: [He growls at me with a vengeance I’ve never before seen from anyone; almost beast-like.] God? I don’t consult with Him. [He’s talking to me now through gritted teeth. He’s quite upset now.] I’m sorry, but I think this interview is over! [He gets up and storms towards the door. He stops just before the door and turns back towards me.] Are you one of the meddlesome Christians?
Me: I wouldn’t say that I was meddlesome, but yes I am a Christian.
Character: Well, good luck with that in the upcoming months. There are things that you are going to have to endure that you haven’t even begun to dream of. [He says threateningly.]
Me: I’m sorry Nicolai, but are you threatening me? [I calmly reach for my cell phone.]
Character: No, it’s a promise! [He turns and walks out the room slamming the door behind him.]
Me: Okay, I’m a little nervous now. There is more to Nicolai than meets the eye. Just who is Nicolai really?

Catch Up

Do you need to be caught up to where this next installment takes off? Or do you need a refresher? Then watch the book trailers below.

Both books are currently available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble if you haven't read them previously.

Work In Progress

I am currently working on this book. Funny how you have to go back and re-read the earlier books in the series to catch yourself back up. LOL. Next comes more research for different things. I think that this book is going to be more exciting and thrilling than the last two. Certain things are going to happen that you won't believe.

The Saga Continues.....

The Saga continues with the latest installment of The Apocalypse Series.

In the midst of World War III all of the Christians have disappeared from the face of the earth. The UWR blames all violence and the war on the Christians. If they are responsible for the war and all of the violence going on as the UWR claims, then why aren't they here? Nicolaitanes Balac has been murdered and the world is at a loss. Who will become the world's new hope?

Secret Files About the Group

Hi everyone, it's me Serenity Lambert. While surfing the internet from the safe house, I came across this site. I figured since some of you have probably not yet started reading The Apocalypse series that I should probably give you a head's up.

I probably should NOT tell you anything about The Group but I'm going to anyway. Besides you guys need to know the truth about what is going on. The world and your way of life is at risk. Life as you know it is about to change drastically; and it's all because of these people. (myself included I am sad to say)

First there's Adolph Christophe the arrogant member of the group. He is currently on a secret assignment for Rosalind in Russia. I don't much like this guy, something about him just unnerves me.

Annamaya Varnedoe. She looks like a sweet and innocent person right? How wrong you are! She is a conniving little.... well I just can't bring myself to say it. Don't let her sweet demeanor fool you. But after you read the series I'm sure that you'll have a pretty picture of her in your head~not!

Andrew Jackson. While he may be a handsome looking guy, he is my worst nightmare. He's one of the ones that Nicolaitanes has hunting me. The strange thing is..... I don't even know why.

Caitlin Rogers, the timid member of the group. She is very quiet and doesn’t say much, but she is ruthless when she needs to be. I've gotten to know a little about her and I really don't know why she remains a part of the group. It seems like this is going against everything that she stands for.

Nicolaitanes Balac, a direct descendent of Roman Emperor Nero Germanicus. Pretty impressive, no? He is a very handsome and charming man, right? Don't let his charming good looks fool you, this man is pure evil. Please don't tell anyone I said that, he terrifies me. You have no idea! He is also a very powerful man. I could tell you who I now believe he is but I don't want to influence you in any way.

Richard Smith. He's a nice guy really. He always went out of his way to talk to me. Out of all the members of the group, he's the only one that I actually like. Kind of sad, really. I'm not sure exactly, but I think that he's one of those Jesus followers. It would have been nice to get to talk to him about that. He could answer so many questions that I have. But then again he's part of this group so I could be wrong!

Then there's General Alexander Ludlow. He thinks that he is in charge of Operation Dark Angel but he's nothing more than our lackey. Can you believe that the voice even got him to murder an unarmed man due to the simple fact that he was afraid and wanted out of the project? Poor Charlie Andrews. I still haven't figured out how the voice can force you to do anything, it is after all just a voice, right? The voice is horrifying--it gives me the creeps. I've heard it too. Beware the voice!

Sampson Perry. He has some hidden covert abilities and talents of which Nicolaitanes is not fully aware of yet. He makes me think of a double agent in a spy movie. That man is certainly not quite all there. I don't like the way that he looks at me when we're in the same room. I don't trust him at all.

Rosalind Carey. She is Nicolaitanes' protector. (his little henchman~well woman) She raised Nicolaitanes from the day that he was born as his mother is dead. I wonder what really happened to his mother. She is also Nicolaitanes’ first in command; she takes care of whatever Nicolaitanes needs done. I don't know what all that she does and I don't think that I want to.

Victor Bartola. None of us really know much about Victor. He's pretty quiet and keeps to himself. He's never really talked about his personal life or anything for that matter other than group business. If it weren't for the fact that Victor is part of this little twisted group, I wouldn't mind getting to know him if you know what I mean.

Last but not least, is Tara Matthews. (my other living nightmare who's hunting me). It's kind of funny though because she was the quiet, silent type but I guess the old saying is true, it's the quiet ones that you have to watch.

Well, now you have meet the members of the group in charge of Operation Dark Angel. Can you imagine working with these people on a secret military mission designed to bring about world peace? Well, that's what I was told by the voice that we would be doing. But I soon found out that it wasn't all that it was cracked up to be. You will have to read The Apocalypse Series to find out more about them and this operation.

Be safe everyone. Love, Serenity.
