The Indie Author Life

In a recent interview with EmoryWire, the Emory University Alumni Association’s newsletter, David Darracott revealed the origin of “Internal Security”:

“I remember the day I decided to write this book,” he recalls. “I was reading a novel by a very popular writer that was a government agent-thriller type story. Within the first pages, the protagonist shoots and kills two terrorism suspects in front of the President and praises himself for being such a patriot and man of action among all the weak-willed Washington types.” Darracott set the book aside, dwelling on the prone-to-violence comic book hero of so many popular novels. His creative vision crystallized. “I thought it’s time to give credit to heroes who show restraint and humanity. It’s past time to reject characters and stories that revel in the notion that brutality is a sign of strength. “
