Interview with John Reizer, Author of False Memory
18 Aug 2020
What can you tell us about your new release, False Memory?
False memory is a science fiction story that I thought up one evening when reflecting on my childhood years and a telescope my grandfather purchased for me on my twelfth birthday.
The novella is centered around a young boy who is infatuated with looking at the moon and stars. On his twelfth birthday, the young man receives a telescope as a gift. While looking at the moon, the satellite disappears, and from that day forward, nobody in the world, except the boy, can recall the fact the Earth once had a moon.
False Memory is a story in which I added a lot of imaginative elements that hopefully takes readers on a suspenseful and entertaining journey while at the same time prompting them to ponder the subjects of human awareness and perceptibility.

What makes your world go around?
I am a chiropractor who works three days a week in my private practice. On the days I am not seeing patients, I am writing, walking, and spending time with my wife and daughter. These are the people and things that make my life complete.
If you had an extra hour each day, how would you spend it?If I had an extra seven-hours each week, I’d probably spend it working on stories or writing articles for my blog. It never seems like there’s enough time in a day to get these projects done. The extra time would certainly come in handy.

What advice would you give your teenage self?
Don’t be nervous about taking chances in life. I used to be very shy and introverted as a teenager, and if I had it to do over again, there would be certain things in my earlier years that I would approach differently. You learn these valuable lessons as you progress through the journey of life. I think this bit of information would be the best advice that I could give to my teenage self.
What scene in False Memory was your favorite to write?
My favorite scene in the book was when the protagonist gets to see the moon again 40 years after its disappearance. This chapter was the most fun for me to write because it brings everything full circle and sets up what I believe is a really satisfying ending for readers.
