WHAT WAS THE INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS BOOK:
Well I started writing at the age of 16 as a coping mechanism. I cowrote a book with 2 of my best friend & that one however was just for fun & will never see the light of day. So a little over 10 years later, I was typing it up in my computer (before this it was only on paper), & this story kept bugging me (not really, I love writing) to write it. I took some of the parts I had written over the years & rearrange them, changing name & key components, (now only on the parts I had written!) & this story was born. I have gone on to write 2 novella, short stories & 2 novels that goes with this series & am in the process of writing another. Though as of right now, only this book & the 2 shorts are published.
