FAQ’s and Book Info
What prompted you to write the Lunar Codex
Why is there such a gap between the time I finished writing and it being released?
How long does it take to write a book?
How many books will be in the Codex Chronicles series?
Do you have new series coming?
How do you come up with your books?
Do you have a schedule for each book to be released?
Will there be an audiobook released with each book?
Was there an inspiration for each of the characters?
Yes. The basic of each character was based on someone, but there are always liberties in the characters that do not fully match the person. For instance, Jace’s basic personality is based on my now 16-year-old son, and his looks are that of my now 5-year-old. When the book started, they were 14 and 3 (sound familiar to the story?).
Marcus is a comical blend of my older two boys, while the personality traits of Uncle Roman and Aunt Cora reminded me of my parents. Actually, many of the phrases Uncle Roman uses, facial expressions, or mannerisms he uses come directly from my dad.
Zoe definitely has my sister embedded in there. She is feisty but very loyal. Brian is a combination of my cousin, who shares the character’s name, and my brother.
My husband can be seen in Kyle, Izzie’s father. He is a retired corrections officer; my husband was a Bridge and Tunnel Officer. Both are very attuned to their surroundings and question when things do not make sense. They both recently retired and are helping their wives with their creative endeavors.
Did you use specific locations because you know them?
Williston, Florida was a google search based on the parameters I had put in. Initially, I had no specific location in mind, except that it would be in the United States. When I started, I actually had envisioned Arizona but switched gears when I found Williston. You learn that Jace’s family is moving from Arizona in the first chapter of the Lunar Codex. Now you know the back story. 😉
I knew I wanted a rural area that had an old-world charm. When I saw the pictures of the town, my creative juices started flowing, and I knew I had my town. It also helped that my parents don’t live very far from there, in a house I spent many years living in when I was a child.
This book leaves you begging for the next one!”
“The Lunar Codex was such an amazing and thrilling read I couldn’t put it down! While I’ve always loved fantasy books, this book is so much more than that. It also connects you to the real world.”
