Interview with the author

Where did the idea for this story come from?

"That is a question as old as the craft of writing. The idea of Janet, and the story of Blind Eagle, arose in 2014, when I was visiting a local cathedral and I questioned the duality of power exercised by forces such as the Church and the State. Each one on their own for a long time, however, together, at the same time, with the same type of family has not been seen since the Borgias. "I wanted to explore that topic from the point of view of a normal person, who is just a public employee and who, like many of us, is affected by the decisions made by those higher up."

Why is Janet's character so full of personal failures and events?

"Before I answer, I would like to mention that Janet was Gerart. Plot twist. Gerart was a lonely man and on the verge of retirement, he had to take charge of the most important negotiation of his life, and with which he would leave permanently. I liked the good Gerart, but I felt that the character needed more depth, and what better than the eyes of a mother, seeking to reconcile not only with her motherhood but with herself. I felt that Janet had a lot more to bring to the table and it gave me the flexibility to be able to place her in different situations. Also, I always wanted a strong and determined woman as the protagonist. Despite everything Janet goes through, she is that and more."

What does “Blind Eagle” mean?

"I don't want to get into spoiler territory here, but both The Blindness of the Eagle and Blind Eagle come from the same seed. There are several meanings, which have to do with both the loss of a central character's ability and the blindness of those who are powerful. It is quite a poetic background if we see it from a certain perspective."

We have read the book and we were surprised by a detail at the end. Without giving much context or information, what's next for Janet in the future?

"There is more of Janet in this story. There's no doubt. There are certain details of this story that play a very important role in what is to come. I can confirm that I am writing Pale Chameleon , the second part of the story, and am sowing the seeds for the third installment, which at the moment has the working title Stiff Serpent . As you see, I have a fixation with certain animals (laughs).”

To finish this mini-interview, we have been asked to ask you the following: what is your measure of success?

"I think I know who that question comes from. My measure of success is not selling a million copies, which doesn't hurt either. But rather, being able to do what I like and being able to share it with the people I love. I write because I am passionate about it, and being able to give a little of that art to my family and friends is priceless."
