As part of the Noah Zarc blog tour, I interview the author D. Robert Pease today. I have also reviewed the book here. As you go through the interview below, you’ll find that Robert’s personality is clearly reflected in his book as well, which means this interview is going to be as much fun as the book was!
So. without rambling on any more, let’s get started.
Describe your book? What genre do you consider your book?
Noah Zarc: Mammoth Trouble is a middle grade, science fiction adventure geared toward kids about nine to fourteen. It’s a retelling of the classic Noah’s Ark story from the Bible. And I mean that in the very loosest of terms. It can be more accurately stated it was “inspired” by the biblical account. The story is about a twelve-year-old boy from the 31st century who, along with his family, travels through time in a massive spaceship called the ARC (Animal Rescue Cruiser). Their mission is to repopulate Earth after some kind of cataclysm destroyed all life on the planet several hundred years in the past. Of course no adventure is complete without bumps along the road. Noah’s Mom and Dad both disappear and Noah and his brother Hamilton, and sister Sam have to figure out where and when they are, and come up with a way to rescue them. All the while they must avoid the family’s sworn enemy, Haon, who has made it his mission to stop the ARC project at all costs.
