Scott, your new book Eight Days comes out in March 2016. Tell us a bit about the story and what inspired you to write it.
I can’t remember the exact moment when the idea for Eight Days came about. Usually new story ideas come fast, through a dream or event, but this one came slowly. I do know that several people who I cared for had died within a year or so. Two of them died within a couple of weeks of each other. I was sad about their loss, but I also knew that I would see them again. Not here, but somewhere. I wanted to explore this and began researching Heaven and the most believed ideas on the afterlife.
