[Author Interview] Daniel Hanson | How to Prevent Sexual Assault
Featured Authors Talk About It
ATAI: Tell us a little about you.
Daniel: My experience as a US Airforce Weapons Mechanic introduced me to electronics which I pursued when in college. My interest in how things work included electronic devices that could be used for spying. Never stop learning you may just end up writing a book like me. The more I learned the more I wanted to educate the public.
Of course, it started out about technology. I decided to publish because no one else is discussing the technology which exists that predators can use to stalk their victims. I have been amazed at what technology is readily available to predators while doing research.
ATAI: How long have you been writing?
Daniel: I never set out to become an author but it all started in 1996. I set out to build a Silver Palace based on a couple of scriptures. I began to write my ideas down and pretty soon it developed into a booklet.
I also branched out into other topics to build my writing skills. Having caught my first rapist at the age of 12 I decided to write on how people could protect themselves. Having a technical background, I worked on how that specific knowledge could be used on the general public once I discovered it was not being addressed.
ATAI: What was your most recent release?
Daniel: How to Prevent Sexual Assault/ How to Detect and Defeat Today’s Spy Technology
ATAI: What do you love most about writing?
Daniel: The fact that my experiences and knowledge can help others lead a safer life.
ATAI: What do you find most challenging?
Daniel: Getting people to realize the benefits of my material. The failure of my petitions on www.whitehouse.gov was a great disappointment. I wanted to do more than just write a book and getting even one law passed would have put me over the moon.
ATAI: Where do your ideas come from?
Daniel: Past experiences and my never-ending thirst for technical knowledge.
ATAI: What is your writing process?
Daniel: Write down my ideas then expand on them later. Over the years I have found this method is best for me.
ATAI: Do your characters (or message) ever seem to have a life of their own or an agenda of their own?
Daniel: No, my message has never seemed to take over but I must admit that I have learned new things. There will never be an end to the need for my work.
ATAI: What’s your favorite part of your book (or one of your books)?
Daniel: My favorite part of my work is the chapter titled “Kiddy Version in God’s Feminist Movement.”
ATAI: What are you working on next?
Daniel: The third edition on my original work “God’s Feminist Movement.”
ATAI: Where can people find you online?
Soon to be available in paperback as well as e-book.
I would also like to let any other inde authors know that you can now publish your work in e-book and paperback on Amazon.com for free.
ATAI: Thank you for sharing with us and our audience.
Daniel: Thank you for providing me with the opportunity to make my work known. It is a sad topic but one that is desperately needed by everyone. Except the predators.
