Featured Interview With J.D Sinclair
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am a tenth generation Texan, and History Buff. I served as a Contract Administrator for General Dynamics, and as a Senior Contract Administrator for The Jet Propulsion Laboratory, holding a Secret Clearance in both positions.
J.D. Sinclair is a pen name which I use because of the sometimes controversial nature of his novels. The Sword of Islam, for example, an erotic thriller, exposes one of the most serious and avoidable national security blunders of the century, the failure to destroy the Stealth Drone captured by Iran in 2011.
This blunder is so appalling it proves Einsteins observation, “The difference between stupidity and genius is that genius has its limits.”
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I became an avid reader by age seven. I did not start writing novels until I was over 50. This book is an attempt at a new genre a spy novel in which the characters are based on real historical figures. I used Mata Hari, Otto Skorzeny, and 80 dollar Wu [A chinese warlord] as the basis for some of my characters.
In my novel the spies really do use sex to get information. The spies and their hunters are also ruthless, as they are in real life.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
My favorite authors are varied, Ian Fleming, Winston Churchill, Tom Clancy are among my favorites.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
In this book the Israeli spy Suji, is based on Mata Hari. Like Mata Hari she uses sex to get information and her handlers really put her to use.
The book also details the planning of a large scale commando raid.
