"Author Roland Sato Page was born in Brooklyn New York in a military household. Roland married his high school sweetheart and started a family of four. Being military and law enforcement his memory is like archive storage. Eating the Forbidden Fruit is a gritty fiction novel loosely based on true events in author Roland Sato Page’s life."
Born in Brooklyn New York, which is your favorite childhood memory?

The diversity of cultures something that the Midwest lacked in the 70's. The food, entertainment, and the history was quite educating. It benefit my business strategy.

Being born in a military household, how did it inspire your career?

My influences were of strict discipline therefore that's all I knew. It helped at a early age however upon early adulthood I believe it made my rebel. The military delivered many law enforcement opportunities to my door. I don't regret joining or my upbringing it gave me the discipline that maybe saved my life. I can handle any situation I encounter.

Did you miss anything while having grown up in a well-disciplined home with five other siblings?

Coming from a well knit family of course I miss the good ole days. Yet my family now (wife & children) are the most important part of my life. I can cherish the old memories but I live my life for the new.

What made you decide to plant your roots pursuing a military life in the Army Reserves?

The Reserves provided the financial means to pursue a college education and was a excellent feature on my resume.

How was your life impacted when your career was cut short when you were convicted of federal crimes due to your childhood affiliation?

Complete disarray. A ultimate nightmare. It's like a shark attack the fear of being eaten alive and drowning at the same time. As we discuss before my background prepared me for situations like such.

How did writing help you fight depression?

Complete distraction and then it resurfaces old memories that were forgotten. It update my memory archive. Like " Oh wow almost forgot about that."

Which was the moment when you decided to trade visual art for literary art?

Upon my diagnosis of Lupus my hand motor skills diminished, depression followed. So it was a matter of maintaining my sanity. Both trades require a creative imagination.

What inspired you to write your book, Eating the Forbidden Fruit?

For me as a artist I have success when I indulge in something I have personal knowledge about. I didn't have to do research to make sure it's credible I merely told my story.

How long did it take you to think about all the true events in your life that you have included in your first book?

When you encounter something traumatic like I did. You don't forget. Even if you try. You don't forget so it doesn't happen again. My situation has scared my memory for the rest of my life.

How much discipline does it take to be a writer? Would you say you are disciplined?

I am because I have no choice. My depression consumes me so it's a necessity. We all know to be successful in one's endeavors it requires commitment so there you go. Could you imagine a mediocre physician or police officer? Not good! Thus you will love my book because you witness the conflict in my career. Loyalty to the badge or my childhood friends.

How has being an author changed your life up till now and what are some new goals you've set for yourself?

I'm still the same. Matter of fact I don't consider myself a author as of yet. That's a honor I must earn. We will see how Eating the Forbidden Fruit goes before I claim an author's title. I am a humble man wishing to share my story. A story of transparency, karma, confession, and redemption.

What is your creative process like? How does an idea in your head become a novel?

Being military and law enforcement my memory is like a archive storage. I retain past incidents like no other. lol A curse and a blessing.

Is there anything new that you're working on? When can we expect the next book to come out?

Oh yes "Eating the Forbidden Fruit" has just begin its journey yet I have started on two other projects "Skin Deep" based on my Body Art career the temptations and the drama. Thirdly "Walking the Purple Road" my 40 day stay in the hospital experiencing unbearable pain. Also how a family love forced me to fight for recovery. During those 40 days I can count on one hand the times my wife left my side. True love can conquer all.

Describe being an author in five words. What are some things you love and hate about the job?

I'm not a academic so critics will come for you. What I need my audience to understand is my mission is to bring you into my world. For me to accomplish that successfully we have to journey into the urban concrete jungle of St. Louis. Where there is more common sense than academics. That's the rule of the streets.

How did you come to learn about AllAuthor? How has this website helped you?

Upon research for top marketing platforms for authors. AllAuthor was there and what I love about your platform you make sure the members take advantage of all the helpful tools. To be honest AllAuthor is the only one who does that. The others I encountered take your money and the feedback is minimal. You might not hear from them. You are the blue collar service with grass root results.

      • First impression is the best impression. Presentation is important to representation. My title illustrates and narrates everything about my story. Eating the Forbidden Fruit is a story of "Sin Behind the Badge" The police academy Law section teaches if a officer indulge in unethical behavior it is deemed "Fruit of the Poisonous Tree". The Forbidden fruit is temptation therefore my title is my past journey as a St. Louis police officer convicted of federal crimes.

      • Actually "Eating the Forbidden Fruit" is loosely based on true events in my life. I chose fiction to protect and respect the privacy of good people who are characters in the novel.

      • My genre is custom tailored for me. I have to be careful to respect the privacy of characters in my story. Some have moved on and have a wonderful family. I also must be considerate of my family not to open old wounds for my wife. So I would say my classification is a fiction fusion. Elements of family drama, true crime, urban fiction, and true romance.

      • My father and mother so they can meet my wife and children. They had a great relationship with my mom but wouldn't it be grand if I could sit down with all generations and discuss how we evolved. Introduce my grandson to his great grandfather. That would be a miracle come true. The third guest would be my best friend, Eric, who is no longer here. He is a main character in the book. Our motto was "Am I my brother's keeper?'

      • I lost my mother over a year ago. A week later I underwent hip replacement due to my Lupus. I spiraled into a deep depression. My wife and kids encouraged me to climb out the lump I was in. I began to write as a distraction. I wrote about my past and present life experiences the good, the bad, and the ugly. Walking backwards into the past made me remember so many cherishing moments.
