Welcome to 4writersandreaders, M.C.V. Egan.

Thank you, Bette, for inviting me today for an interview and for participating in the acknowledgement of the United Nations 33rd International Peace Day.

It’s both a pleasure and a privilege to have you with us today, Catalina, as people around the globe recognize September 21st as The International Day of Peace. Your novel, The Bridge of Deaths, promotes world peace in a unique way. I’m sure we’ll find out more about that from you today.

The Bridge of Deaths, opens with this quote:

“Somewhere, something incredible is waiting to be known.”

Carl Sagan

BOOK_FRONT_AND_BACK

Tell us a little about yourself, Catalina.

I was born in Mexico City, Mexico 54 years ago. Through the twists, turns and opportunities in life, I have lived in Mexico, France, Sweden and various parts of the USA. Consequently I have managed to acquire four languages and a variety of cultural influences. I now live in South Florida with my husband and teenage son.

How about your family and community life?

I am a mother and a wife. I am also a step mother and a step grandmother. I live in an area where the sense of community is very mixed as the brunt of the population only lives here for part of the year; they are known as snow-birds and flock from various northern parts of the USA, Canada and Europe. This has enriched our area in so many ways. Exposure to cultural diversity and great restaurants are only a small part.

How long have you been writing and what type of writing do you normally do?  

I have been writing since I was a young child. My writing varies with the exception that I have never dipped into Horror, Sci-Fi or Fantasy, I dabble and test just about any other genre.

Can you give us a brief synopsis of your novel? 

It is a well-documented historical journey with a touch of fiction and a metaphysical twist. The story revolves around the 1939 crash of airliner G-AESY and it is explored from the perspective of a modern-day couple researching their past lives.

What prompted you to become a writer?

In general what prompted me to write was an innate need to communicate. It is not that easy to be heard when you are one of eight kids in a family of very loud voices.

Do you have a favorite line or brief selection to share from The Bridge of Deaths

I do have one, but it would make no matter of sense at all to anyone who has not read the book.

“It wasn’t the best copy. It was from an old microfilm machine. The resemblance was unmistakable. She found herself out the door, in her car, and heading back to where she’d promised herself she would never go again―to the accountant’s office”

Who is your favorite character and why? 

Maggie is my favorite character for a number of reasons. She is the only primary character who is absolutely fictional, and that granted an amazing freedom to me as a writer. I could make her as fearless and lovely as I chose. Also, I made her a young woman of great convictions, especially in regards to striving for WORLD PEACE.

What was the hardest part about writing your book?

In the case of The Bridge of Deaths, acquiring the information―research was the hardest part.

Do you do anything besides write? 

I am trying to devote myself to writing and parenting these days. I have worked in the past and I enjoy it. I feel at this stage in my son’s life it is very important to be a very hands-on parent.

How can readers get a copy of The Bridge of Deaths

What’s next for you, M.C.V. Egan?   

I am writing, working on a series in more of a Chick Lit genre. Also, through a local writers group, I am dabbling in short stories and one-act plays. Next year when new files pertinent to the crash of the G-AESY ―because of the 75-year disclosure rule in Europe―I do hope to uncover much more or all of the facts surrounding the crash.

But the next four years in parenting will be pivotal, so my projects may well go slowly.

Thank you, M.C.V. Egan, for including 4writersandreaders in your PEACE IN TIME Book Blitz & Blog Hop presented by The Bridge of Deaths and VBT Cafe.  It’s been wonderful having you featured here on September 21st United Nations 33rd International Peace Day―a day designated to promote world peace.

The Bridge of Deaths is a love story and a mystery. Fictional characters travel through the world of past life regressions and information acquired from psychics as well as archives and historical sources to solve “One of those mysteries that never get solved” is based on true events and real people, it is the culmination of 18 years of sifting through sources in Denmark, England and the United States, it finds a way to help the reader feel that he /she is also sifting through data and forming their own conclusions.

The journey takes the reader to well-known and little known events leading up to the Second World War, both in Europe and America. The journey also takes the reader to the possibility of finding oneself in this lifetime by exploring past lives.

Painting the World with the Brush Strokes of  Peace

by Bette A. Stevens

WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 15th commemorates the 73rd anniversary of the crash of the G-AESY, an English passenger plane from British Airways Ltd that crashed in Danish waters just two weeks before Hitler invaded Poland and the world was at the brink of war. M. C. V. Egan’s latest novel, The Bridge of Deathshttp://thebridgeofdeaths.com/ takes the reader to well-know and little known events leading up to the Second World War, both in Europe and America. As Bill, a young executive, travels today’s information highway, his journey through knowledge and time help him discover the real story of this 1939 plane crash. Both a mystery and a love story, Egan’s novel takes readers on a journey to uncover doubts left by the 1939 investigation into the incident. The Bridge of Deaths’ message that knowledge is the key to peace as a way to prevent war may give today’s readers insight into unlocking the secrets to peace for our own generation.

I wholeheartedly believe that knowledge of the past holds one of the keys to peace. Knowledge of the people in the world around us today holds the other essential key.  However, knowledge in and of itself is useless, a collection of unused paint brushes resting on the world’s shelf. We must pick up those brushes and start painting. The perfect portrait of peace begins within each one of us. It’s painted one brush stroke at a time. Here are some simple steps that we can all take to contribute to that portrait:

 Take the time to learn about those who are different than us. Perhaps we could start with someone in our own family (opinions, race, religion, beliefs, customs, cultures, political affiliations, the list goes on…):

  • Listen to others
  • Get to know them
  • Let them get to know us
  • Respect differences
  • Look for commonalities
  • Nurture relationships
  • Offer and extend a helping hand
  • Encourage others
  • Enlist the help of others
  • Give input and feedback
  • Keep the conversation going

Working in the classroom as a teacher of students from diverse backgrounds, I learned first-hand that those who hold different beliefs from my own are all unique individuals with whom I have many things in common. We all share the same needs and desires, the same frustrations and fears, the same hopes and dreams.  Whether students, parents, staff, volunteers, administrators or colleagues, I have gained respect for and have been deeply enriched by each encounter. Life-long relationships have been nourished and continue to blossom. The brush strokes to peace lie within each of us. How do we paint the canvas? One brush stroke at a time. BUILD RELATIONSHIPS: Listen, share ourselves and our ideas, respect those of others, look for commonalities. Our individual and collective lives will continue to be enriched as we work together to paint that perfect portrait of peace!
