    William J. Carl - Assassin's Manuscript - Writing Techniques, Thriller Novel, and Fiction vs Non-Fiction - 668

    William J. Carl - Assassin's Manuscript - Writing Techniques, Thriller Novel, and Fiction vs Non-Fiction - 668

    William J. Carl - Assassin's Manuscript - Writing Techniques, Thriller Novel, and Fiction vs Non-Fiction. This is episode 668 of Teaching Learning Leading K12, an audio podcast.
    Once a pastor, seminary president, professor, and US Senate Guest Chaplain, William J. Carl, Ph.D., is a Greek Scholar, award-winning screenwriter, playwright, poet, and lyricist. With the recent publication of Assassin’s Manuscript, he is now the author of a thriller.
    He earned his Ph.D. from the University of Pittsburgh in Rhetoric and Communication. In 2013 he was given Pitt’s Golden Medallion Award as a Distinguished Alumnus and was named one of 200 most influential leaders out of 300,000 living alums globally.
    Dr. Carl has spoken at dozens of leading schools, including Oxford, Cambridge, Princeton, Carnegie Mellon, Cornell, and Boston University. He has spoken in 40 states across the United States and in Russia, South Africa, India, Rwanda, Taiwan, Canada, South Korea, and China. He has lectured on the brain at medical conferences and medical schools since 2000.
    For 22 years, he appeared every third week on the ABC television affiliate in Dallas. He was also interviewed on the PBS affiliate in Dallas, discussing the tensions between Christians, Muslims and Jews in the Middle East where his main theme was finding common ground.
    The author of eight non-fiction books (two translated into Korean) and 75 articles and reviews for religious publications, his screenplay, Maggie’s Perfect Match, was the winner of the Telluride Indiefest Screenwriting Contest.
    He earned his bachelor’s degree from the University of Tulsa, where in 1970 was named “Man of the Year”. He received his Masters of Divinity from Louisville Presbyterian Seminary where he was the Patterson Fellow in Greek and named a Distinguished Alumnus in 2007. He received honorary doctorates from Presbyterian College, Sterling College, and Waynesburg College.
    Carl is presently the Founder and CEO of LeConte Publishing, LLC, and Partner and Founding Board Member of Briggs Development Group (briggsintl.com). He is also the former President of Pittsburgh Theological Seminary.
    Born in Broken Arrow, OK, he grew up in Bartlesville, OK. He has lived in Chicago, Tulsa, Louisville, Richmond, Dallas, Pittsburgh, and Birmingham. He resides in Maryville, TN.
     
    A little bit about Assassin’s Manuscript:
    When former CIA assassin Adam Hunter’s last hit goes awry, he attempts to leave behind his world of espionage and murder by embarking on a career in ministry. But soon, he is pulled back in to crack a code hidden in an ancient manuscript in order to foil a terrorist plot. In the meantime, Renie Ellis, a lawyer in the small town he’s moved to gets caught up in his dilemma and falls in love with him, not realizing he killed her fiancé by accident. What will she do when she finds out who Adam really is? The heist of a famous Codex from the British Museum, Papal intrigue in the Vatican, both Sicilian and Russian Mafia, and a US President who knows more than she admits all play key roles in a story that keeps the reader guessing until the end, a conclusion that no one sees coming. From Rome to Jerusalem, from Egypt’s Mt. Sinai to Tennessee’s Smoky Mountains, the characters scramble for their lives, racing the clock to prevent an international disaster.
    Our focus today is William’s Novel - Assassin’s Manuscript….
    Cool story!
    Page turner!
