Author Interview – LDC Fitzgerald

7:30 AM Posted by James Noel No comments

Did you learn anything from writing this book and what was it? Our characters travel back in time from 2013 to 1963. One astounding thing we learned is that the days of the week are exactly the same in those two years that are half a century apart. So, if today is Saturday, April 20, 2013, fifty years ago it was also a Saturday on April 20, 1963. It was totally a coincidence since this pattern repeats at odd intervals due to leap years.

What are your goals as a writer? What I imagine any writer’s would be—to sell a million books and never have to work a day-job again!

Have you ever gotten any surprising feedback on your novel? Boy, have I! I received some hate mail through my website from conspiracy nuts who don’t agree with my interpretation of the JFK Assassination. They took it so seriously that I am not sure they realized the book was fiction. And I thought the fact that the characters time-traveled was a dead giveaway.

Have you written any other books? Yes, I have written two non-fiction books that are also related to the Kennedy Conspiracy.

“John F. Kennedy’s Speeches: JFK’s Legacy as America’s 35th President” is a compendium of all his best and most famous speeches, with commentary describing the circumstances surrounding the events.

Along with his legacy as a popular president, Kennedy is remembered as a young, charismatic leader and a skilled orator. Examining his written and spoken words gives an overview of tumultuous era of the early sixties. Kennedy navigated us through the trauma of the Cuban Missile Crisis, and horrific race riots, while simultaneously ushering in the Space Race, and forming the Peace Corps.

The other book, “I’m Just a Patsy,” is a compendium of the written words of JFK’s alleged assassin, Lee Harvey Oswald. Along with commentary, the documents tell a story of a passionate young man who follows his dream to defect to Communist Russia, and then becomes bitterly disillusioned when he recognizes the utter drudgery of his life, and the imperfections of the political system he idealized.

Oswald was an oddball, a malcontent, and a lone nut. A man smart enough to teach himself to read and speak Russian, he was incapable of holding down even menial jobs. A self-declared Marxist, he executed his fanatical defection to Russia with foresight and tenacity, but he never learned the simple skill of driving a car.

Oswald’s words chronicle his indifference to family, search for notoriety, pursuit of a perfect political system, and his renewed interest in defecting.

Can you share a little of your current work with us? Currently, I am working on a scavenger-hunt type of mystery. The plan is to have an interactive version for the eBook, where readers can get hints and play along at the same time. I’m really excited about it!
