What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My love for Science Fiction, Aliens and romance. A Big Science Fiction fan. I love Star Wars, Star Trek, and Battlestar Galactica. I love Asian movies: Chinese especially. Kung-fu movies are my favorite genre. As there are not much good Sci-Fi in Asian movies. Jackie Chan, Bruce Lee, and Jet Li,, are some of my Heroes. I used to practice Martial Arts myself. I love Chinese cooking, all things media like writing, video production. I have a B.F.A. in Film making and Video Production. A bachelor’s in Computer Science. Nine classes short of getting 3rd bachelor’s in Web Design. Plan on getting Master’s in Movie and TV Production.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I always wanted to build a strong female character. Since there are a lack of females heroes or models in the world. I wanted to create characters that people can relate with and have strong thoughts and feelings. Not enough attention is paid to female stories or characters.
April’s white wispy spirit drifted through the endless space of different galaxies after the planet wide explosion destroying her home planet of Omnibus from a ten-mile meteor that hit the planet.
Planet Omnibus, which is in the Alphanumus Galaxy, had very advanced weaponry for technological warfare. They could not destroy or even slow down the large meteor that ultimately obliterated Omnibus. They tried bombs on drones, lasers and even suicide space rockets filled with bombs, and gasoline, heading towards it, trying to break it apart. Nothing worked. It didn’t even slow it down. Somehow, it had a small force field that deflected everything that was sent to collide with it. It was impenetrable. None of the scientists knew how it was powered. Nor did they know who sent it.
The Meteor was traveling at the speed of light: 186,000 miles per second. Where did it come from? How was this was happening, no one could comprehend. The scientists saw this very large meteor coming five years ago, traveling at the speed of light, measured in light years. Nothing could be done except for evacuation. It was a race against time, a mass worldwide exodus. The world population was seven billion people. Did everyone get out in time? No. Many stayed because of the lack of transportation and finances. They couldn’t even build enough rocket ships fast enough to leave Omnibus. It was a panicked and frenzied time. Only the privileged few who had money and influence got away.
April wasn’t one of them. She had a bucket list and completed all of them even though she was only twenty years old. She knew she was going to die in five years ago, at the tender age of fifteen. Her parents were still hopeful and positive in the End of Days. They wished the government could find a solution for the impending doom. None came; many tried to flee Omnibus, but died in the process trying to build their own rocket ships.
When it finally happened, everything disintegrated. Omnibus’s inner core exploded from the inside because of the meteor’s impact. People just vaporized, but not April. Her father put her in a Teleporter after she was knocked out by the initial blast. It took a couple of hours but everything living and non- living melted because of the intense heat of the explosion. The temperature was over two thousand degrees Fahrenheit. Life as April knew it on Omnibus ceased to exist anymore.
April’s spirit entered the Earth’s atmosphere and finally in a funeral home in Atlanta, Georgia. It was just random thing that her spirit found a dead white female human body. Or was it? It seemed to be drawn to similar personalities or physical features like her. Was there an automatic program or spiritual instinct that drove the spirit to this particular dead female? The deceased female was a twenty year old just like her. She later found out that she died from a brain cancer.
She was not embalmed, so her wake was closed casket and short, only a couple of hours before the burial. State laws prohibited the wake without embalmment because of the smell. The parents who didn’t believe in chemicals wanted it this way and made greased payments to the Funeral Director to have a quick closed casket wake and burial. They didn’t want chemicals in their child.
April awoke in the non-living human female. She had possessed the body. Eyes wide open. She was still in the closed casket. Before she opened her eyes the spirit was slowly entering her, as this was happening; the blood vessels in her brain that had ruptured from the cancer had killed her plus her autopsy surgical cuts was healing itself.
April was shocked. What is happening? She thought. She had no idea that she had died and her spirit entered a Human Female Earthling.
She pushed the coffin door open. It creaked. She sat up and looked around and saw the funeral home surroundings. The wake service had just finished and everyone left the room. She was alone. She climbed out of the coffin and stood outside in front of the casket. She walked outside in the back, past her grieving parents who was talking to her friends and to the Funeral Director.
April stood outside in the sunlight, looking at the sky, wondering why the sun was yellow and not blue, like on her home planet. Her last memory was feeling an intense burning sensation from the intense heat from the explosion on Omnibus right before she was transported. She had no recollection of anything after that. She walked and passed by a back window of the funeral home and saw her own reflection.
I look so different. She thought. Why?
April didn’t know what was happening. She thought she was still on Omnibus; but in a different area. April was an intelligent female. She knew of Earth while she was on Omnibus. Omnibus was a parallel world to Earth. The people, who got the chance to leave Omnibus in the Mass Exodus, about one hundred, went to Earth. Only one hundred people left because in five years, they couldn’t build enough large ships in time. Omnibus and Earth was identical in almost every way. The geography was exactly the same. It had different names. It is as if some supreme being divided up the same human race and placed them into two different planets and galaxies.
There was a library nearby the funeral home as she walked away to find out what was going on. She entered the library and looked for a map. She was found out where she was…It was Earth!…She couldn’t believe it. The education was so advanced on Omnibus that even the grammar school education comprised of some of the history of Earth. Omnibus had earlier sent out probes hundreds of years ago with explorers and drones to Earth to found out about the planet.
April was fascinated as she suddenly realized she had a photographic memory and was capable of speed-reading. She had read about all the Alien Space Ship sightings before and at the turn of Earth’s century. It was all Omnibus’s explorers. Her eyes bulged out as she recognized the fuzzy alien space ship picture sightings in the past. It was all Omnibus’s designs.
This is why we knew about Earth? She thought.
How did she get to Earth so fast? She scoured the Internet of news about credible non UFO space ships visiting earth in the last one hundred years. None was available. All they had was news about UFO’s.
We know about Earth, but they don’t know about us. She was thinking.
She was told it would take one light year to reach the Earth from Omnibus. That means the ship was traveling at the speed of light, 186,000 miles per second, would still take one year to reach Earth. That is: ‘5.865696e+2 miles’. This figure popped in her head. What! She didn’t have this super mathematical ability before? She had double-checked the amount on the internet. It was right! She was slowly realizing that she had supernatural abilities.
It must have been the combination of being from another planet and inhabiting a new body. Or, maybe a different color sun, like in the comic books. Maybe she was Supergirl, she thought. April didn’t know. But she was going to find out.
She didn’t know how long she had traveled. But she had reached Earth much faster that the mass Exodus Ship. How was this possible?
Were there more people like me that came to Earth this way? She thought, puzzled.
As she was reading on the Internet, she found out the currency that the U.S. was using. On Omnibus they used credits that were transferred wirelessly by phone or a watch. There was no paper money or coins anymore. That was in the past for Omnibus.
Earth was so primitive. She thought, smiling.
Like Omnibus, she knew she had to have money in order to live. She needed to get a job. She was studying Art on Omnibus before her big Exodus. She found out that the economy was down in the present year 2020 A.D., and there were no jobs in Artistry on Earth.
She knew Photoshop though. April decided to become a Scientist, partly because she wanted to investigate herself and her new found powers. At least until her people, Omnibusians, arrived on Earth.
I hope the world is ready for the Omnibus refugees. They might attack and destroy the ship. Oh
well, I deal with it when they come. She thought.
She faked a driver’s license ID and looked up Youtube.com “How to hack into any U.S. Educational Institution”, to fake records. She knew how to drive. It was curious to see how many things were so similar between the two planets. It was even more curious though. There were no Black people on her planet. She wondered why. They had every race other than Black People: White, and Asian, or Caucasoid and Mongoloid.
April had to know about the Earthlings she had to live with. She wanted to see if she was part of the human species, located on a different planet. The only way she would know that is if she bred with a human male.
Would a normal human being come out? She thought. Or a half human, half monster?
If non similar species bred, no babies would be produced. Like a cat breeding with a dog, for instance. She would use herself as a guinea pig, to find out. Of course she could have done this without being a Scientist. But she needed the money and a career anyway. So, why not become a scientist. All of her family was Scientists.
April had trained herself on the Internet and tested herself on the Internet to make sure she could remember everything. She also learned how to steal $0.005 cents from everybody’s account in the U.S. She realized she was a professional hacker. She created a fake Social Security number and a bank account and deposited the stolen money. She cut through the bank’s firewall without the bank even knowing about it. All the people’s bank account statements didn’t even show $0.005 cents missing. Three hundred million people in the United States with half a cent missing from their accounts. Total: $1,500,000 dollars.
That would do for now, she thought. I could have stolen the same amount from seven billion people in the world. That would calculate to thirty-five million dollars. She didn’t want to take the risk that someone would catch her.
She didn’t have a boyfriend on Omnibus. She was the only being of her kind on a strange planet. A stranger in a strange land. Or so she thought. All her family was dead, she presumed. Her parents, her identical twin sister, Autumn, what had happened to them? Did they make it out alive? She didn’t know.
If they arrived on Earth. I wonder if anybody from my family or friends possessed another human body on Earth? How would I know or be able to find them? She knew they were on a Space Ship while the planet was exploding heading towards Earth. Out of all the space ships being built at the time only one made it out of Omnibus…
She had nobody. She started to cry…She felt so lonely, so alone. April started to shake a little. She saw an image of her parents and her sister…when she last saw them…April was grateful she was so strong. Most people would be so depressed and have PTSD. Post Trauma Stress Disorder. She would survive this, she thought. But she needed friends, and love to get her through.
April, like all or most identical twins have this biological link. They can sense one another even if they are far away from each other. There have been some documented situations where one twin was in danger and the other would feel it, even though they were far, far apart.
I sense she is still alive and safe somewhere. What body does she have if she is on Earth?
April needed to matriculate as a student to become a scientist. A Sex Scientist in Anthropology. A Sexologist. The study of human beings. A Ph.D. in Anthropology. She needed to get away from Atlanta, Georgia though. She didn’t want to bump into the dead body’s parents. She didn’t even know that name of the body that she possessed. They would freak out big time if their daughter rose from the dead. She moved to Chicago, Illinois to start a new life.
April knew that Carissa Levine, the dead girl whose body she had possessed had an identical twin sister named Marissa. What April didn’t know that Marissa also was going to school. Marissa was going to be a Lawyer. Since the University had different Colleges: April was in the College for Scientists, while Marissa was going to the College of Law. Marissa was going to the same school April was going to, Northwestern University, in Chicago’s suburb called Evanston, Illinois.
