Schiller wrote many famous plays, including Don Carlos (an inspiration for George Lucas’ Star Wars), Mary Stuart (the story of the last days of Mary, Queen of Scots), The Maid of Orleans (the tale of Joan of Arc) and Wilhelm Tell (the inspiration for the theme song to The Lone Ranger). Schiller also wrote the poem Ode to Joy that Ludwig van Beethoven set to music in the Ninth Symphony, now the European Anthem. Schiller was recently named the greatest playwright in Europe after William Shakespeare.At age 9, Anderson’s grandmother encouraged him to follow in Schiller’s footsteps. In 2009, Anderson learned that Schiller may have died under mysterious circumstances while writing a play that would have exposed the plans of a powerful 18th century secret society. This discovery propelled Anderson to pick up where Schiller left off more than 200 years ago and investigate whether powerful, behind-the-scenes forces are helping bring about the fulfillment of end-times predictions.Biographical Highlights ■ Two decades of experience as a reporter, editorial writer and editor at the Los Angeles Daily News, The Press-Enterprise and other newspapers;■ Seven years of experience as executive editor of The Return International, senior editor of Godspeed Magazine, and executive editor of Charisma magazine and Charisma Media; ■ B.S., University of Oregon, news-editorial journalism; more than two dozen writing awards, including first places for feature writing, best series and investigative reporting, and 2011 and 2012 Eddie Awards (Folio: magazine's prestigious journalism prizes);■ Member of the American Society of Journalists and Authors, Investigative Reporters & Editors, the Association of Ghostwriters and Gotham Ghostwriters;■ Speaker at conferences, churches and other venues, including some with more than 7,000 audience members.
