Missouri Tenth: Thank you for agreeing to talk with Missouri Tenth about your book “Georgia Burns”. Could you tell us a little bit about yourself, your interest in writing, and what inspired you to write this book?
Tom Davis: My name is Tom Davis, most call me Tommy. My wife Angie and I live in Southeast Georgia. We have four grown children. I am a bi-vocational businessman and Baptist pastor.
I have been interested in writing since I was in high school. It was about eight to ten years ago that I started putting down on paper some ideas for a political thriller. I first came up with a major action scene which takes place aboard Air Force One. The President of the United States attempts to land at the airport in Atlanta but is turned away by the Governor of Georgia! This gives rise to a crisis of authority on board between the President and the Secret Service. A fighter-jet flying in escort of AF1 mysteriously explodes mid-air. From that beginning I added fast moving chapters that feature story lines such as economic collapse, war with Iran, the lost ‘Tybee Bomb,’ riots in major American cities, Islamic terrorism, militia risings; all inter-woven around the central plot of a serious struggle between the President and the Governor of Georgia. Everything is fiction, but it feels like it could all happen tomorrow.
