Since the inception of This Night Wounds Time in April 2009, I have been asked countless times (and in a variety of ways) why I felt compelled to undertake the task of writing a book about Stacie Madison and Susan Smalley, two individuals whom I did not know personally.

The most concise answer I can offer in this regard is that, whether the world can comprehend it or not, I simply felt called to write the book. As Ephesians 2:10 says, "[W]e are God's workmanship, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do."

While writing the book, for inspiration I looked to Oskar Schindler, whose deeds were, according to Herbet Steinhouse, the result of, "just that elementary sense of decency and humanity that our sophisticated age seldom sincerely believes in."
