The Author Greighton Rivera
Greighton Rivera, an active-duty soldier in the United States Army, is the mastermind behind the upcoming novel. With a degree in Criminal Justice from a prestigious university, Rivera is a force to be reckoned with, both on and off the battlefield. On his Facebook page, El Poeta Frances, he shares his poetic musings and reflections on relationships with his nearly 200,000 followers. Born into a devout family, with both of his parents being pastors, Rivera’s upbringing instilled in him a deep sense of morality and ethics. In his free time, he can be found hitting the gym, diving into a good book, or immersing himself in the world of electronic games. Despite the challenges he faced as a youth, including severe bullying, Rivera emerged stronger and more resilient, ready to tackle any obstacle that comes his way.
The Motivation Behind Going Dark
Greighton was inspired to write his novel Going Dark by his life experiences and his desire to explore the complexities of human nature. As a person, Rivera has seen firsthand the brutality and trauma of violence, and he wanted to use his writing to delve deeper into the motivations and emotions of soldiers.
The idea for the novel came to him during a night when he was watching a series and reading some stories about war.
As he began to develop the story, Rivera drew on his own personal struggles, including his experiences with bullying as a child, to give his characters a sense of vulnerability and humanity. Through his writing, he shows that even the toughest soldiers are still human, with their own fears and doubts.
Going Dark is also a reflection of Rivera’s interest in the power of words and the impact they can have on people’s lives. “Little hesitations can birth fatal destruction. I don’t hesitate when it comes to impact a person’s life in a positive way,” Rivera shared. As he wrote, he was constantly reminded of the importance of choosing his words carefully, as they can have a profound effect on the people around him. “Words are more powerful than you think. A lot of people say, ‘you can’t change another person by what you say; you change a person by what you do.’ That’s true. But nobody forgets how you treated them with your words, even if you asked for forgiveness. Because a bullet that leaves the chamber is a bullet that you can’t take back,” he added.
Ultimately, Rivera was driven to write Going Dark as a way to explore the complexities of human nature and the motivations of soldiers in a way that is both honest and compelling. It is a story that is sure to resonate with readers who are interested in the human side of war and the bonds that can form between soldiers in the face of adversity.
Going Dark is set to release in paperback and hardcover soon and promises to be a gripping and thought-provoking read. With its focus on the power of words, the book is a must-read for anyone interested in the art of storytelling and the impact it can have on the world.
