Interview with Jules Windsor of Stephen Matino's 'The Hidden Reality'




We’re thrilled to be talking to Jules Windsor from Stephen Martino’s The Hidden Reality.  It is a pleasure to have him with us today at Pimp That Character!

Thank you for your interview, Jules Windsor.  How old are you and what do you do for a living?

(British Accent) My, what an auspicious way to begin an interview. Age is irrelevant, and what I do is a completely different story. Plus, by now you should all know what I do. Was it not I who broke the Bank of England by selling the Pound short and earning billions in a matter of a single day? Was it not I who provided my business, The New Reality, with the financial know-how to economically abscond with the world’s sovereignty simply by allowing them to spend their way into irreparable economic debt?

Oh, but the question is not what I do, but more appropriately, what should I be doing? When my insufferably oppressive uncle relinquished his reign over our business known as The New Reality by dying, I should have been the one to fill his void. Instead, my uncle placed that wretched hag, Myra Keres, in charge of the company—a position that was so rightfully mine.

So if you ever accost me again and so nonchalantly ask what I do, do not blame me if I walk right away and ignore such blatant ignorance.

What would I love the most about you?

What really is there not to love? My life has been an utmost success. I’ve not only managed to make an outstanding fortune, but I have also grown The New Reality into the most successful company ever to exist on this planet. Plus, I am outstanding wine connoisseur and can pick the precise bottle for any meal, situation, or even mood. In fact, this interview lends itself to an exquisite chianti grape blend from Italy. Ah yes, I have the perfect Toscana IGT made by than none other than Tuscany’s finest winery, Bibi Graetz. Please, sit while I procure us each a glass.

Where do you go when you are angry?

I take my anger straight to the source. There is no use in sulking or pussyfooting around the issue. That would be an incredibly inefficient waste of time and of no discernable benefit. If you dare mess with Jules Windsor, the fight will not end until only one of us is left standing. And I can assure you and anyone else that dares to cross paths with me that I will be the one not lying helpless on my back when this scuffle has ended.

What is your most treasured possession?

I have a treasure worth far more than money or any so called precious metal could ever buy. What, you want to know what it is? I think I’ve said more than enough. However, I can to you this one tantalizing tidbit of information: whomever owns it, owns the world.

What is your greatest fear?

I fear nothing. Fear is an emotion left only for the weak of mind and body. It is a pathetic feeling that you must conquer, or it will conquer you. I’ve seen many a fine man and woman fall helpless to its deadly grasp and wallow in agony as it ruins their lives and careers. Oh, no. Fear is not in my repertoire of feelings. That I can undoubtable assure you.

Do you think the author portrayed you accurately?

The author is but a petty man who wallows away behind his computer typing endlessly on his infernal keyboard. Click, click, click goes the keys as life passes him by. Despite his flaws, I think he has done an adequate job portraying me in his latest novel. What more could I expect from such a man with trite abilities?

Who is your best friend?

Who has time for friends? All they would want to do is ride my coattails and bleed me like a bunch of leaches. My career is my best and only friend. It’s been there for me since a young lad and will be there for me as I grow older. It’s with me when I go to bed and greets me in the morning. If this interview is meant to create some sort of friendship or comradery between you and I, you are then surely mistaken. 

Do you have children?

Why would I want those sniveling little pests around? The only thing I can fathom worse than having friends is to produce children. Their crying, neediness, and overall consumption of my time is certainly not for me.

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

There was never a question as to what I would do when I grew up. It was as predetermined as my genetic code. If I said any more, I would ruin one of the most climatic scenes in The Hidden Reality, and that would just not be polite of me if I did such a thing.

If you knew you were going to die tomorrow, what would you do today?

Such a simplistic question. Who says I haven’t lived a full life before or will do so again in the future. Plus, time is but an illusion. On a quantum level, time does not exist. Whatever has, is, or will happen is all occurring right now at this moment. Plus, there is not enough time to answer such a question. Please. I think you have asked more than enough queries for the day. If you must know more about me, please read The Hidden Reality. It is available at Amazon, Barnes & Nobles and iBooks. With that note, I must bid you a farewell.

About the Book:

Title: The Hidden Reality
Author: Stephen Martino
Publisher: Light Messages
Pages: 318
Genre: Science Fiction/Political Thriller

In the year 2084, the brilliant inventor, Alex Pella, finds himself at a precarious crossroad between the pursuit of justice and preservation of his own sanity. While attempting to undermine an international New World Order government created by the financial juggernaut known as The New Reality, he must also face the hidden truths about his own genetic heritage that are slowly destroying him. After receiving an ambiguous message sent from a former New Reality executive who died 2 years prior, Alex learns that the only possible means to confront this New World Order is to defeat a long-forgotten enemy almost 2500 years old.

THE HIDDEN REALITY is the second stand-alone novel in a trilogy starring Alex Pella, created by New Jersey-based neurologist and entrepreneur Stephen Martino. With his fusion of history, politics, and science fiction, Martino joins such masters of the thriller genre as Dan Brown, James Rollins, and Michael Crichton.

Martino’s villain is a corporation run by a cadre of ruthless international bankers known as The New Reality. Directed by the most corrupt and morally unscrupulous of the bunch, Myra Keres, the company has economically seized control of the world’s governments and the population’s personal freedoms in the process. In order to save humanity from this despot ruler and the unwonted atrocities to which she plans to perpetuate on the world, Alex Pella must infiltrate the company and face an enemy that has unknowingly haunted both him and history for almost 2500 years.

Martino says he wrote THE HIDDEN REALITY more than just to entertain the reader. He wanted to create a modern day Orwellian ANIMAL FARM to allegorically forewarn his readers of a possible dystopia future that awaits all of mankind if humanity continues to proceed down its path of self-destruction.

In THE HIDDEN REALITY, Martino has included such hot-button contemporary topics as genetic cloning, unprecedented economic debt, the rise of big government, and the threat of a New World Order run by the economic elite, while bringing the reader back almost 2500 years into the past when the ancient city state nation known as Greece fought the mighty Persian Empire for world domination.

All of these elements, Martino maintains, separate his book from the pack. He calls THE HIDDEN REALITY “issue-oriented fiction. There are real concerns facing society today that threaten both the sovereignty and prosperity of our future generations. Though fictional, my novel addresses some of these issues and predicts the potential consequences we face as a nation and the world if they are not properly addressed today.”
