Days 6 & 7 – Doubt Blog Tour: Author’s Friend blog Interview with Anne-Rae Vasquez

Days 6 & 7 of Doubt Blog Tour

Author's Friend Blog#Thriller A note from Anne-Rae Vasquez – What’s behind the story? @write2film

What’s behind the story?

I wrote the first chapter after I woke up from a dream with a vivid image of the beginning of the end of the world. Perhaps my dream was inspired by what I’ve seen in the news where young people around the world are fighting back against their governments’ oppressive policies.   This wave of ‘Truth Seekers’ is evident with the recent “Arab Spring” and other youth led revolutionary protests and peaceful activism against governments who resort to terror and bloodshed to suppress their voices.  The book is also a tribute to Aaron Swartz, an internet prodigy who was ‘behind some of the Internet’s defining moments, soaring to heights that many developers only dream of–CNN‘ and an activist.
At that time, I was shaping out who would be the hero of my story and I decided that I wanted someone like Aaron, intelligent beyond his years, courageous and a seeker of truth and justice.  My book Doubt is a tribute to Aaron’s memory and also an inspiration for all young people to uphold Aaron’s determination that all of us can use our talents to help make the world a better place.
I was also inspired by a young documentary filmmaker and activist Harry Fear whose coverage of the conflict in the Middle East was watched by millions on UStream all over the world.
Both Aaron and Harry are real truth seekers, which were my main inspirations for the main character Harry Doubt.
I have taken this same theme of Truth Seeking and applied it to the fictional story ‘Doubt’.

Here are some details about Doubt, book 1 of the Among Us Trilogy.

Do you love shows like Supernatural, Medium, J.J. Abrams’ Fringe and read books like Cassandra Clare’s City of Bones?


“Doubt” mashes fringe science, corporate espionage and paranormal encounters to catapult you into an out-of-this-world experience. At 21 years old, Harry and Cristal are fresh out of university with their PhD’s. Labeled all their lives as being ‘weird’ and ‘geeky’, they find true friendships with other outcasts by playing online virtual reality games. Harry Doubt, a genius programmer and creator of the popular online game ‘Truth Seekers’, has a personal mission to find his mother who went mysteriously missing. He enlists his gaming friends to join in helping him find her and their own missing loved ones. During Harry’s missions, Cristal and the team of ‘Truth Seekers’ stumble upon things that make them doubt the reality of their own lives when they realize there are supernatural forces living among them. This triggers the beginning of the ‘end of the world’ as they know it.
