Excerpt from an interview with David Stone on his official website:

Are all your stories based on your own experiences?

David Stone:     If they were I'd be dead now, although I've had my times. But not even I can drink like Micah Dalton. He's kind of like me, only younger, smarter, meaner, better-looking, and he has the liver of a Norse god. I'll tell you, I do love the stories that are in the world. Tom Wolfe was right; the best stories are out there in the streets and towns. A writer is at his best when he allows the world to show itself to him, pays close attention, and then uses all his skill to describe what he saw accurately, with grace; when he can; even with affection, if he can.

The Echelon Vendetta has a rather terrible man at its center. Is he drawn from real life?

David Stone:     Yes. He is. He's extremely dead now, and the world's a far better place.

Is Micah Dalton based on a real person? Other than being taller than you, I mean.

David Stone:     And better looking. Yes, to a degree.

Is he alive?

David Stone:     I sincerely hope he is.

And the man called Deacon Cather?

David Stone:     Those who knew him may see traces of James Jesus Angleton.

Did you ever meet Angleton?

David Stone:     No. I know people who knew him.

Will you ever reveal your true identity?

David Stone:     Not a chance.
