Author W. K. Blais School of the Assassins at Amazon
I like writing about the collision of social and cultural forces that at first glance might appear unrelated, then show the subtle interconnectedness. I’ve always been inspired by writers like Cormac McCarthy and James Lee Burke, and their work with social justice themes.
Fiction writers have a keen sense of characters. Twenty years ago, my sister brought home a new boyfriend, a South African Afrikaner and former mercenary in the Congo. I thought, wow! The relationship didn’t last, but I knew I would write a book based on his character.
When I started my research I had little knowledge of the extent of the terrible genocide plaguing the Afrikaner people in South Africa, the ongoing horrific murders of the Boer farmers. Above all else, I hope that School of the Assassins will create awareness of this travesty.
