Why did I write, Capital Offense, a story about an executioner who is accused of illegally killing his wife?
I was intrigued by the idea of someone whose job was to legally kill people but was accused of murdering an innocent person. The more I thought about it, the more I realized that few books delved into the life of an executioner and the moral issues that an executioner faces.
I also wanted to examine how a person under stress is affected by extreme events.
Once I started writing the story, I kept adding characters to challenge Kurt and bring his internal moral fight onto an ever larger stage. I’ve been pleasantly surprised by the results. I hope you are too.
