Author Interview with Robert Dancer
Monday, February 13, 2012  2:48:00 PM

by Nicole Marie Sorkin



Action/Thriller
'Love Class and Deceit' - a story of love, class status, romance, war and lies before , during and after World War Two set against a background of the social, and cultural changes in the United States and the affect and reaction those changes had on three aristocratic New York families whose backgrounds went back to the original Dutch and British settlements.

 Today we have the pleasure of being with author Robert Dancer discussing his new romance novel titled love, Class and Deceit now available on Amazon Digital Services (Kindle).

PBR:  Thank you, Robert, for taking your time to join us.


RD:   It's a real pleasure and thank you for the good review. I surprised myself by writing and   publishing an e- novel at age 85, though as mentioned before there was always that yen for writing. 

It's never too late to do most anything, though I'll never play centerfield for the Dodgers. 

 

PBR:  Your book had, as mentioned in my review, a nostalgic style, a straightforwardness of your charming characters, uncomplicated and thus leaving much to the reader’s imagination to read between the lines.  Tell us, please, how you positioned your level of detail; what to include and where to draw the line regarding the depth of your characters for the creation of your narrative.

RD:  The detail arises in the character of the three main aristocratic New Yorkers who traced their background to the early Dutch and British settlements and their reactions to the social, cultural and political changes that occurred in New York and the nation before, during and after World War Two. The level of detail for each character was just enough to enable the reader to see how the characters would probably react to those changes.

 

PBR: As a World War II veteran, I want to ask how much of this story is based, or loosely based, on real events, and how much is entirely fiction?

RD: The story is loosely based fiction of an actual battle that took place during the Normandy invasion. I did not have a part in it.

 

PBR: This is set in the mid-20th century, but are the political undertones (a liberal leaning, I think) a product of that time or today?

RD: An English professor of mine once described a classic as having the universal in their particular. The story's background concerning isolationism, class status, and bigotry, for example, are universal themes still relevant today.

 

PBR:  It seemed to me that the politics (Andrew as the selfless liberal and Peter as the calculating capitalist) worked its way into the love story. What I mean is Peter seems bent on winning Natalie's heart by deception, thus treating her as an object (capital) and Andrew had treated her as a subject. Was this intentional?

RD: Very much so-The story clearly shows Peter as an over entitled individual who achieves his ends by manipulation and lies. Natalie knew Peter from childhood and understood him perfectly. And saw in Andrew a strong, honest individual that she could relate to.                                                  

 

PBR:  Natalie's reluctance to start a relationship with Gene was a surprise. Was this because she was not over Andrew or was it a statement about narrow thinking, in respect to religion and ideology, during this era? 

RD: Both-She still loved Andrew and she was not a bigot of any type but practical and, in a sense her mother’s daughter in respect to religious and cultural differences.

 

PBR:  What were some of your challenges when putting this book together?

RD: As a first time writer the main challenges were to keep the reader interested from the first to last page and making the characters relevant to the things they did. 

 

PBR:  What are you now working on, and when might it be ready?

RD: I 'm still in a writing class and working on a story about an individual who immigrates America  in the early Twentieth Century and what happens to him.  (No, it's not your typical rags to riches)

 

PBR:  We certainly wish you the best of success with Love, Class, and Deceit and hope to read more of your work in the near future.  Once again, thank you for sharing your thoughts with us.

RD: You certainly will.  I'm looking forward to the good things that will happen now.
