Edgar Phirst: An Interplanetary Psychodrama by Geries Shaheen

Good morning to everyone. By now, you know that I have been on a cruise with my sister Robby. We had a fantastic time in Cozumel and Progresso where we were treated like queens. On both islands, we found wonderful beaches with private swimming pools, places to eat and plenty to drink. I needed the time away and feel rejuvenated. I know this sounds like an oxymoron, but I was able to get editing done as well during the downtimes. I love editing book as I lay on the upper deck and take in the sun. When I returned home, to my surprise my daughter, my son-in-law and their two children were at my house having come down for Labor Day Weekend. This is a special treat because my son-in-law in is the United States Coast Guard and have been stationed in Oregon, California, and Chicago for the last six years. So, to have them at my house was a treat. We swam and my husband grilled. Also, we played games. It was a double whammy for me for a vacation treat.

Now for author interviews. The next two authors are very deep intellectual authors and will give you something to think to about. I hope you enjoy them.

  2. Tell your readers a little about yourself, where you grew up, where you live now, where you went to school etc. Let them get to know the personal you.
    I’m a psychotherapist in the St.Louis Missouri area. I was born a partiality raised in Nazareth Israel. I enjoy traveling, art, and writing!
  3. What inspired you to author this book?
    Learning about various Christian martyrs throughout history, and watching the ever-changing religious climate was a large inspiration for this story. The idea that movements can continue to grow with or without their origin point is fascinating. Elon Musk and the grand ventures of Space X have been main sources of inspiration as well.
  4. Where did you get the inspiration for your book’s cover?
    The book cover was meant to give an ominous yet familiar feel to a planet we are only beginning to understand. Mars, as luring as it might be, gives us a new space to live out our daily dramas.


  5. Who has been the most significant influence on you personally and as a writer?
    Agatha Christie was a favorite. I didn’t read much when I was younger, but when I did, her writing left an impact. Donald Millers works gave me a desire for personal storytelling as well.
  6. What were your struggles or obstacles you had to overcome to get this book written?
    I had a good idea of each character as I created them. The struggle came when each came initially contact with one another. Various incidents in the story had to have unique responses from the characters. Giving them a solid voice true to their personhood was a good challenge.
