Can you tell us a little bit about yourself and your background?
I was born in 1983 in Oceanside, New York. From a young age I had wanted to be a writer, coming from a family of writers. My father was a producer and radio news editor at CBS News in Manhattan and my grandfather was a Producer at CBS News. I was an actor in high school and became interested in writing from my 12th grade English teacher, Russell Reid. From there, I majored in English at SUNY Albany and transferred down to CUNY Hunter College in Manhattan to earn my BA in ‘Language Literature and Criticism’. It wasn’t until I moved to Boston for a new job that I became interested in all the esoteric sciences including the astrology and astrotheology prevalent through my book series.
The origin of your new book is heavily based on astrology and the esoteric sciences. How did you choose to go in that direction?
I became interested in astrology in the Bible when I came across some astrotheologists on YouTube. One such named Jordan Maxwell said there was a passage in the Bible that the disciples asked Jesus what house to find him in. He told them to go into town and find a man with a water pitcher then follow him into his house. The man with the water pitcher is Aquarius and his house is the house of Aquarius. I was hooked. It really spoke to me. I interwove a 6-book series that includes the following topics. Gematria, etymology, numerology, astronomy, astrology, astrotheology, OBE’s, the Akashic records, symbology, remote viewing, religious secrets capstones of the pyramids, mystery schools channelers. Near death experiences, DMT monitoring, lucid dreaming, acoustic levitation, jet pack propulsion, physics and quantum physics, psychotherapy, psychology, Antarctica spiritual guides and shared dreaming.
How would you describe the book?
Fans of Dan Browns writing will find my writing very similar with the exception the characters are young and sarcastic. He was a heavy influence on my writing style with the cryptograms and anagrams. I was originally going to write a non-fiction astrology book, but then realized I could reach a larger audience with a series of thrillers.
Why did you choose the name "Into The Rabbit Hole?"
“Into the Rabbit Hole” was chosen because I speak a lot of conspiracies and hidden information in my books. The main one is hidden codes in the Bible and those hellbent on keeping them a secret. Also, it’s quite a common phrase and I figured it would land more searches.
What do you feel the writing of the book taught you about yourself?
That I could write a well-crafted series and include all the information I’ve ever studied into a string of events. I’ve never experienced writer’s block, if anything I’ve always had too much information to talk about. I’m very proud of my series because about 50% is things I’ve learned and 50% is things I figured out for myself.
What would you like readers to take away from reading your book?
Some will be mind-blown as to how much hidden astrology the Bible actually is. For example, there’s a proverb that says “Pride comes before the fall” most people would see it as a way to mean to be humble, but a group of lions is called a pride. Leo the Lion the sign of the Zodiac is a Lion and that’s July August, which comes before fall. It’s these kinds of wordplay and metaphors that are hidden in the Bible. Others will like the stories and stories. I hope they learn and are entertained.
