INTERVIEW WITH ADAM AND EVE from THE GARDEN / The Unauthorized Biography of Adam and Eve

THE GARDEN / The Unauthorized Biography of Adam and Eve by Paul T. Harry

The Garden Blurb:
Nearly every religion and society in the world today begins with their story with Adam and Eve. And yet, this most basic story is couched in mysticism, myth, and vague detail. Did such a couple really exist? Were they the first man and woman on our planet–or is there more to the story?

For two hundred thousand years the Neanderthal race ruled Earth, then mysteriously, 40,000 years ago they disappeared forever leaving behind a new race of people, the Cro-Magnon. Why? What happened back then that changed our history?

The Garden of Eden, a perfect home built and designed for two people, until the serpent arrived. Who was the serpent? And what was he doing there in the first place? Is there a chance that the serpent is actually a reference to some hidden sexual transgression?

Imagine traveling billions of light years across space to settle an unknown world populated by primitive barbarians. Imagine being alone, just you and your spouse, the two of you in charge of an entire world with only your faith and your mission to guide you—and, of course, the devil waiting for that first fatal mistake.

Could you have done things better?

THE INTERVIEW WITH ADAM AND EVE

Today, I have the incredible honor of interviewing perhaps the most famous couple the world has ever known. They are a couple made famous in numerous books, religious tomes and testaments, including the Bible, and their legacy easily spans the centuries touching each and every one of us in ways we can only begin to imagine. The input of their genetics alone changed the entire direction of our species’ development. But beyond that, they changed our development both culturally and spiritually, and the effect of their presence is felt even today. The ironic part is, most of us know very little about the couple I’m going to introduce you to, our guests today, Adam and Eve.

Welcome.

Adam and Eve: Thank you. It’s a pleasure to be here.

Internet news: I’d like you to hold that thought for just a minute. And before we continue any further I’d like to give our readers a little more background information on the two of you so they can fully appreciate what happened 40,000 years ago. Can you tell us a little about your home planet, Mirra?

Adam: Surely. It’s a large planet, slightly larger in circumference than Earth, though the gravity is about the same. It’s far older and much more settled climate wise.

Eve: And we don’t have a moon like your planet, but we’re surrounded by far more stars.

Internet News: But your planet’s technologically, it’s quite superior to that of Earth’s.

Adam: Yes, far more so—though you have been making substantial strides in the last hundred years.

Internet News: Do you think that the technological difference between our two planets contributed to your situation here on Earth? Perhaps even your failure?

Eve: Undoubtedly. I don’t think either Adam or I fully realized how much we missed Mirra or our previous lives there until we were alone together on Earth. Even we were fooled. I don’t think it was the distance between our worlds necessarily, but the isolation that was the worst thing. We never had a chance to make contact with anyone from our previous lives. At times it was like everyone we knew had died and we were the only ones left. And even though we made many new friends on Terran and there were many rewards, it always felt like we were missing something.

Adam: I would have to agree. Perhaps if we had not been so educated, or used to things that many of you take for granted it would’ve been different. I understand, of course, why things had to be the way they were. The Terran project was an experiment that called for the strictest standards and that meant we had to be alone on your planet. It was the only way.

Internet News: Aside from the default, what was your biggest mistake on Terran?

Adam: Wow, there were quite a few. Underestimating Mikatta, that was a big one for me. I knew at the time that we had to be wary of him, but I unprepared for the level of viciousness he cast upon us and his deceit was immeasurable. I think he had a better grasp of the time it would take to put his plans into motion. Both Eve and I were caught up in the daily lives of everyone in Eden. Our days and nights were kept busy supervising the tribes and formulating our plans to make Earth a better place. Mikatta on the other hand, had only one plan in mind and that was to bring us down.

Internet news: Eve?

Eve: For me it was the loss of Kane and Able. As parents, it’s hard to reconcile yourself with the loss of your children. Again, there are no excuses. We could’ve done better job.

Internet News: Adam, Eve, I would like to thank you for a wonderful interview. Meeting you has been a delight and far more than I could’ve ever have imagined, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. And for our readers, I do hope you will take the time to pick up a copy of THE GARDEN, The Unauthorized Biography of Adam and Eve, available now at Amazon.com http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00AR3AHK8  You won’t be disappointed.

kim desalvoKim kindly took the time to answer some questions for us.

What inspired you write Incidental Happenstance?

I’ve been a writer all my life–journals, poetry, short stories, kid’s books…but aside from a poem published in a giant anthology, I never really tried publishing them. Incidental Happenstance started as an idea that got stuck in my head. It invaded my sleep and started growing; the characters began having conversations, developing faces and voices, and they just wouldn’t leave me alone. Life was incredibly busy, as it always is, but it got to the point where I had to get it out and I started writing. At first I thought it would be like the others, sitting in my huge file of writing “stuff,” but I liked how it was coming along, and started sharing it with a few people who encouraged me to keep working on it. It was them who inspired me to take it all the way to publication–my book club, family, and friends who read early drafts and made suggestions that I took to heart when doing the never ending edits and revisions that pretty much took over my life. I’m so glad I did!

Why write a contemporary romance?

In this instance, I just went with the story. Romance is such a huge part of life, and falling into someone else’s love story is a fun way to escape from the trials and tribulations of everyday life; whether reading or writing.

I loved the scene with Chester and Francine! How did you come up with it?

I wish I knew! Sometimes I just get lost in the story and wonder myself where the words came from 🙂

Is there going to be another book and will it (hopefully) continue with Tia and Dylan? The sequel is in the works. I’ve been so humbled and awed that people have loved Tia and Dylan as I came to love them, and have been thrilled by the requests for more of their story. I had more in store for them from the onset, but had to find an ending point for the book to keep it a reasonable length. I’m so happy to be able to stay in their world for while longer! I’ve also got some new ideas simmering on the back burner.

Will we ever get the stories behind the other band members? Bo is going to be a pretty prominent figure in the sequel–he and Lexi have much more to explore in their relationship…

Do you have playlist to give us an idea of how INHAP sounds?

Listen to anything by Dave Matthews. He was absolutely the voice I had in my head when I envisioned Dylan on stage. Raw and honest, pure and gravelly; like honey and sandpaper.

Just for fun…I love to travel. I don’t have kids, and my day job as a teacher affords me a good amount of time off. Every single place I visit changes me and reminds me that no matter what our differences, we are all the same at the core. I’m also a scuba diver, and love being an alien in the underwater world.

Favorite color?

Blue. Because it’s the color of a warm summer sky, but is also a melancholy color. It encompasses every emotion.

Favorite drink?

Hmmm. I guess it depends on the day. And time of day. In the summer, a tall glass of fresh lemonade. Coffee in the mornings. I also like micro brew beers. But my go-to cocktail is a Long Island Iced Tea.

Favorite snack food? Fresh guacamole–nature’s perfect food!

 

Last movie you went to the theater to see?  The Hobbit. Tolkien was a genius, and I’m a sucker for the films. Have extended editions of all the Lord of the Rings movies, and can practically recite the dialogue.

Last and/or favorite book read?  The last book was the final installment in Nora Roberts’s Bride Quartet series. That woman really knows how to write a romance! My favorite book of all time, though, is The Stand by Stephen King. It’s one of only a handful of books that I’ve read more than once…the man is an absolute master when it comes to the art of writing.
