What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve had many story ideas within my head, but this adventure stuck out to me and I threw all of my energy into it. I tried to make this book about loss, knowing your own self worth and accepting one's faults.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Within the story, I take many moments straight from my life and twist them to fit their needs. I take some characters straight from people I know within my life. But I placed some of my own distinct personality into Ellie.
The back door stood ajar and a perfect circle cut into the glass that now littered the floor in pieces. The monster faced in my direction, but how could it see? This thing was standing in front of me clear as day. He wore the same rags that were covered in ominous red stains. He was bald apart from a few deep scars that covered his head and face. The only thing that made it remotely human was its mouth. The creature licked its thin black decaying lips. Inside the monster’s mouth, a set of pointed teeth, stained with what looked like blood. The smell gave off hit me like a brick wall and its foul stinking odour lingered around me and I could hardly breathe. Was I dreaming? Did I fall asleep in front of the TV? No, this was real.
I wanted to move, to get the hell away from it, but my body became rooted to the spot.
Move, Ellie, move! I screamed inside my head.
My body finally cooperated with my brain, and I backed up from the foul smelling creature. I ran through back through the living room panicking as my mind tried to come up with an explanation. I wanted to head outside and run away from the house, the home that has always protected me. But before I could get to the front door, another one of those monsters blocked my escape. Where were they coming from? Abandoning the exit, I spun around and headed up the stairs, only to see that the monster from the kitchen followed me into the living room. It slowly slunk towards me with its foul odour. I had to escape somewhere, anywhere. With my eyes still pinned on him, I ran up the stairs.
Within a few steps, I felt something strike my face, hard. I lost my balance and fell backwards, crashing to the floor, wincing in pain as my body screamed with agony. Once my vision had stopped spinning, I saw the creature standing on the stairs with a twisted smile. My lip felt twice its size and stung like hell. Blood filled my mouth, and I swallowed the red metallic substance. I tried to get to my feet, but my legs felt like jelly and couldn’t stand. All three of the faceless monsters stalked towards me. They surrounded me.
Crap, I don’t want this! I screamed inside my head while clutching at my sides.
Again I tried to get up as quickly as I could, but it was no use. I buried my head in the floor and waited for them to take me away. That’s when I heard a whizzing noise travel above me and ended with a crash. I looked over to see the monster soaring across the room, crashing into the wall, though he didn’t stay down too long.
Lifting my head up, I could see Rhea standing over me. She held out her hand, which I gladly took. Her eyes latched onto my bleeding lip and her eyes turned a coppery shade of red.
