I write thrillers based upon conspiracy theories. I don’t think of myself as a conspiracy looney tunes or nut job. I find many of these hypotheses interesting, sometimes horrifying in their implications of corruption and deceit by government/political leaders, but in all cases worth investigating. For me, they provide the perfect foundation for writing fiction that might have a smidgen or more truth in the mix. Fictionalized fact is the best in my book(s).
To be clear on what conspiracy theories are, here are two definitions:
Conspiracy: an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan formulated in secret by two or more persons; plot.
Theory: a coherent group of tested general propositions, commonly regarded as correct, that can be used as principles of explanation and prediction for a class of phenomena.
So, a conspiracy theory would be defined as an evil, unlawful, treacherous, or surreptitious plan/plot formulated in secret by two or more persons planned and based upon a coherent group of tested general propositions, commonly regarded as correct, that could be used as principles of explanation and prediction for a class of phenomena.
Sounds like something a lawyer would write. No worries, I’m not a lawyer.
My Eloah Trilogy are religious conspiracy thrillers based upon theories regarding who started the Church of Rome (Saint Peter or Simon Magus) which became the Roman Catholic Church, the crucifixion swoon theory, the theory that Jesus may have been a mix of twin brothers—Khrestus and the rabbi Yeshua, and includes scientific/ philosophical theories about alien life forms, spiritual immortality, reincarnation and the quantum physics theories entanglement and multiverse.
Lots of neat stuff in three novels all set for publication in September, October and November, 2016.
Already deep into my next book project, Boomer will explore conspiracy theories connected to the Bilderberg Group, the New World Order and extreme transhumanism with links back to some of the trilogy characters and some new ones that will rock your world.
I’d like to hear your thoughts on conspiracy theories, so please feel free to comment about any theory that interests you. I’ve probably got my own thoughts on just that supposition. Let’s talk it!
