Bruce, how did you come up with the title for your book? Does it have any special meaning?
“Paladin” is the last name of the main character, which means a knightly or heroic champion of a noble cause.

Who was your favorite character and why?
Aside from the main character, Rich Smithfield (“Smitty”). He was interesting, intimidating, and always had more going on in his head than he would let on.

Does your book have any underlying theme, message, or moral?
We live in a time when a well-timed bad earnings report could tank the stock market, or worse, a few terrorists could hijack an airplane and bring the world to a standstill. What would happen if something on a far larger scale occurred? How would we cope?

What would/could a reader or reviewer say about this book that shows they “get” you as an author?
One of my Beta-readers recently told me that it was a book she kept thinking about long after she finished it. It would please me to see more readers say the same.
