I’m hosting an interview with political fiction author Greg Sandora today. Greg is the author of political novel “Jack Canon’s American Destiny”.

Author Interview

1)      Please tell us about yourself.

I’m originally from the Portland, Maine area and lived and worked there before moving to Southwest Florida in 2004.

My Dad and Mom were artists, my father painted and my mother wrote poetry and loved to garden. Most Saturdays we loaded up the 1970 Chevy Impala to trek to a one man show somewhere or other. I took a different track graduating with a business degree; owning and operating an Award Winning Franchise Fitness Center. Currently a professional manager I am living in Florida with my beautiful wife and children, and following my passion.

 2)      Tell us about your book in five sentences or less.

Jack Canon, a man born into privilege, a witness to great social injustice is going to be President of the United States–no matter what!

A Universal Raw Nerve is exposed becoming a thrill ride as deep machinations of espionage, geo-politics and deception, even murder play out. Kind and charismatic, Jack’s just naughty enough to have you falling for him like one of his loving circle of loyal friends. Of course he’s flawed, a dedicated family man, faithful to one woman, but in love with two. Is it his fault his best friend is impossibly jaw dropping beautiful?

A heart thumping climax so shocking you’ll pull the covers and draw the shades! One things for sure, through all the drama and suspense, you’ll be pulling for Jack!

3)      What inspired you to write Jack Canon’s American Destiny?

Jack is a kind and loving person that goes way out of his comfort zone to set things right.  He has an open heart which sometimes gets him in trouble with women – his ultimate goal is to make the world a better place. I always wanted to write this story, during my mom’s long battle with cancer and eventual passing, writing Jack Canon’s American Destiny was an outlet. I needed something and this story flowed to me as a gift from God. Although on several occasions during my wife’s pre-edit, she asked me – OMG, did Jesus take a coffee break here?

4)      How many hours per week do you spend writing?

I wake up early and write until sunrise. Usually about an hour and a half each day, more on the weekends. On rare occasions I’ve written all day long, but that’s not often.

5)      If you could meet three authors, which authors would you choose?

James Patterson, Debbie Macomber, and Marianne Williamson. I love books on spirituality and in the case of Patterson, the ease and flow of his writing.

6)      Tell us about your current work in progress.

I am just finishing the sequel to Jack Canon’s American Destiny – The working title is Jack Canon – Clean Sweep, but may need to change.  American Destiny does not reflect the tenderness in the story. I want readers to get that when looking at the cover of the sequel, which will be available soon.

About Jack Canon’s American Destiny

6065346[1]Title: Jack Canon’s Americen Destiny

Author: Greg Sandora

Genre: Political Fiction

It’s the steamy summer of 2016 in Washington, D.C. just days before the Democratic National Convention. A long and painful recession has left ordinary Americans suffering, spawning the hottest Presidential Contest in history. Jack Canon, a man born into privilege, a witness to great social injustice is going to be President of the United States–no matter what! Desperate and corrupt, the leader of the free world orders a hit to slow him down. The plan backfires–the wrong people are dead–a manhunt points to the unthinkable–The President of the United States.

Rewind one year, Jack’s focus on redistribution of wealth and energy has made him powerful enemies. Once his friends, Rogue Billionaires, Oil Sheiks, the Mob, all want him gone. The current President wants him alive–thinking he can win against an unabridged liberal. A Universal Raw Nerve of wealth vs. poverty is exposed becoming a thrill ride as deep machinations of espionage, geo-politics and deception, even murder play out. Kind and charismatic, Jack’s just naughty enough to have you falling for him like one of his loving circle of loyal friends. Of course he’s flawed, a dedicated family man, faithful to one woman, but in love with two. Is it his fault his best friend is impossibly jaw dropping beautiful? Think the crime and passion of the Godfather meets the romance and innocence of Camelot. A story that could spark a movement, a book that can seed a revolution. A heart thumping climax so shocking you’ll pull the covers and draw the shades! One things for sure, through all the drama and suspense, you’ll be pulling for Jack!

Author Bio

3929240[1]_optI’m originally from the Portland, Maine area and lived and worked there for years before moving to Southwest Florida. I am currently working on the sequel to Jack Canon’s American Destiny – which will be titled Jack Canon Clean Sweep. The sequel will be available in about three months.

My Dad and Mom were artists, my father painted and my mother wrote poetry and loved to garden. Most Saturdays we loaded up the 1970 Chevy Impala to trek to a one man show somewhere or other. I took a different track graduating with a business degree; owning and operating an Award Winning Franchise Fitness Center. Currently a professional manager I am living in Florida with my beautiful wife and children, and following my passion.

Some of my other projects include a children’s book called Sammy the Sea Turtle – about an infant sea turtle taken from his nest the night he was to find his way to the sea. Sammy lives with the family until their son – the boy who took him, graduates from high school. On that day Sammy, backpack in tow – begins the long journey home.

My second project in the works involves angels – a man during a visit to Bar Harbor Maine encounters an angel; quite accidentally, he is told – she was not supposed to make him aware of her existence. Only three others have ever seen the real thing. Naturally he falls hopelessly in love with the beautiful creature.
