Interview with Patrick Hogan, Author of Coincidence, you say?

26 Jun 2024

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Coincidence, you say??

Actually, I never wanted to become an author; it was thrust upon me by circumstances and all the pain and deaths caused by the aftermath of Vietnam. Unfortunately, the very best I could do, almost a half-century after the war, was to write an account of our betrayal and describe our exposures to the toxic pesticides and abhorrent conditions of the Vietnam War as best as I could. All in the sincere effort to correct the present so that what occurred in Vietnam will never happen again to new generations of military personnel, their families and their children and quite possibly their grandchildren’s children.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Coincidence, you say?, what would they be?

“The Impossible Dream” written by Mitch Leigh and Joe Darion.

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

Yep, Non-Fiction.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

Septuagint Bible w/ Apocrypha and The Return of the Gods by Jonathan Cahn.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

My early childhood.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)


Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

When God gives you lemons, make lemonade.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

Actions speak louder than words.
