"The Story Behind the Story"--July 12th, 2009

"The Story Behind the Story, an Author Interviewed" Q & A session is my new measure to help the world of independent authors and publishers. If you have released your own book and are looking for ways to promote your efforts, your book and your soul as the creator of your work, contact me HERE to book your online interview on this blog, "Drawing Stories...With Words."

...Introducing, author Andrew Cort...

Q. What is the title of your book?
A. Return to Meaning: The American Psyche in Search of its Soul

Q. What genre is your book? Who is your audience?
A. Religion/Spirituality/Philosophy/Culture

Q. In 150 words or less, tell us what your book is about.
"Return to Meaning" demonstrates the underlying Unity of our western traditions, which all teach the path of spiritual evolution, and it shows how our refusal to recognize this common purpose has led to unnecessary hatred, bigotry, and a tragic sense that life is adversarial, absurd, and meaningless. The book helps restore respect for all religions, as well as restoring a deep sense of sacred meaning in our contemporary secular lives.

Q. Apart from being an author, who are you in relation to your gifts?
A long-time student of the traditions (western & eastern), a holistic doctor, a teacher adn an attorney.

Q. Of all the stories you could have written...why did you choose to write this particular book?
I wrote this book because the deepest wound to the human soul comes from our lack of appreciation for higher levels of Being and meaning, and this undercurrent of alienation and emptiness is at the root of all our difficulties and miseries as a civilization.

Q. Apart from writing stories, in which direction do you see your career heading adn what will you bring to the literary world outside producing new stories?
A. I hope to continue writing books and articles, present seminary and workshops and perhaps host a cable TV talk show for writers, artists, musicians, and socially advanced scientists and politicians.

Q. Who would you say is your literary mentor?
A. There are far too many to name without leaving many out.

Q. What has been your greatest innter struggle to overcome with relation to your literary career?
A. Actually, I love writing and I love philosophy and theology and history. My biggest struggle has been to make time or all the necesities of life.

Q. What words would you like to leave the world when you are gone?
A. Life is not meaningless, there is only one God, there is only one path 'home' and all the great religious traditions know about this path, and all teh great traditions are True. You simply must work very hard to listen.
