What are the three things you learned while writing Of Good And Evil?

I learned about intricacies of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, all the pre-planning and planning and practice runs,the key individuals involved, all merging into the final plan masterminded by Khalid Sheikh Mohammed; the blunders of politicians and agency bureaucrats to prevent the attacks because of asinine walls set up between agencies preventing them from sharing vital terrorist information with one another; the insidious
dereliction of politicians and agency bureaucrats incapable of taking correct action in response to warnings leading up to the 9/11 attacks, these warnings — the foreboding of the previous failed attempt on the World Trade Center,bombings of our embassies in Africa , attacks on U.S. military property in theMiddle East and Somalia — ignored or dismissed or mishandled; the utter ignorance and ineptitude of politicians and agency bureaucrats to understand the full scope and threat of Al Qaeda, and its true mind set and intent.

I learned about Iraq, what led up to it, what happened during the war, the role of Al Qaeda in it;  from the fall of Saddam Hussein, to the hell of IEDs, to the insurgency efforts of Bin Laden’s operative Abu Musab Al-Zarqawi who reported to Ayman Al-Zawahiri second  in command to Bin Laden, to the U.S. Army’s First Infantry Division finally cleaning up the resurgent terrorists once and for all in the hotbed city of Fallujah and preventing civil war, to the Iraqi people finally holding up their purple-inked voting fingers proudly as they elected a new Iraqi interim parliament; all the while, during the war, the America and Western Media undermined America’s war efforts with incomplete or misleading reports, mostly from the comfort of their Baghdad hotels while people were being beheaded, civilians were being slaughtered by insurgents, and American and coalition soldiers were dying unpleasantly in the field.

I learned about the suffering of those who had lost loved ones in Iraq and how love, family and friendship provided solace in helping them to recover; connected with this, I learned about military service members returning from the battles of Iraq and Afghanistan, many scarred and shattered in limb, but at home still displaying valor and exuding true nobility in serving their country. And connected, too, with this learning, combined with my passion, I was inspired again to learn the dedication and discipline to write this novel.

Of Good and Evil: A Novel by Gerald G. Griffin

Ron Sheffield, a gifted but tormented Green Beret, plagued by suicidal guilt because of his “special” abilities, is discharged from the army for going “crazy.” Immediately, he is brutally beaten and shot by the Mafia, and is hospitalized near death. His life is dramatically saved by Amber Ash, who also possesses “special” abilities, and from there the two are propelled into harrowing ventures against mobsters, terrorists, and and a government cell out to kill them over Iraqi documents Ron possesses from his army service. In an ironic twist, Ron becomes a Mafia hit man to save his sanity, targeting only fallen mobsters. This brings Ron and Amber into contact with the powerful and humane gifted secret society, Eros; this contact eventually actualizing Ron’s mental gifts to a point beyond his imagination. Ron is confronted with the imminent nuclear obliteration of a major American city by a suicidal terrorist cell that only he can stop. But against impossible obstacles, will he be able to do it in time?
