What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Fantasy genre is what I always loved. Traveling to different worlds and exploring them page by page kept me at night many times. Heros Of the Shadow series started in similar way. I built the first world, Indeabinito, with sketching maps and drawing creatures that lived there. The MC, Thomas McCartney, came to me somewhere halfway through the process. I saw his story clearer and clearer every day. When I wrote a very first few lines about him, I knew it’s the story that must be told. Witch first chapter written, I’ve already known this story will come in series. I’ve seen other MCs and their own stories. I’ve seen how their lives will connect. And so I began to write.
Now, my first book, ‘Heroes Of the Shadow. Blue Scar Indeabintio’ is out. 2nd book is already work in progress. And there are still many more to come.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Thomas McCartney is that idea of a perfect fantasy-based MC I always had. He’s working hard, has a strong sense of his priorities, and as a soldier he’s very logical and solution focused. Throwing him into new world, allowed me to discover his depth. Finding his internal struggle. Exploring how much he’s capable of.
Thanks to his personality, Thomas is getting surrounded with great side characters, from which my favorite is Azar. Azar is a dralog – a fantastic creature with a flying horse and lizard mix appearance. Dralogs create unique bond with their riders, that is thriven on loyalty and trust. He is a perfect pet reflection of human character that Thomas is.
His mother noticed them too. She sat next to them and, absorbed in her thoughts, looked at him for a long time.
"You look just like your father when I first met him," she said finally.
That was true. Like most of McCartney’s, Tom was a handsome, well-built, blond-haired man. The pale complexion, strong cheekbones, sharp nose and dark eyebrows often made people say he was "a living image of his father".
Thomas smiled, came down from the windowsill and embraced his mother.
"Dad will be home in a few days," he said. "I don't leave you alone for long. Besides, Weirdo will keep you company."
He saw that his mum was having a hard time, trying to hold back her tears.
"You won't be here for your birthday, so I'll give you a present now, all right?" asked Lucy and reached into her sweater pocket to pull out a tiny, flat package.
Tom unpacked it gently. It contained two things: a small golden Christian cross and a navy-blue plectrum to play the guitar with.
Tom never paid much attention to his faith, but like his father, he took part in all important Masses when his mother asked him to. To please her, he immediately hung the cross on the same chain on which his dog tags hung. He placed the second gift in the pocket of the guitar case, which was standing against the wall.
He returned to his mother and grabbed her by the hand.
"Just come back. In one piece. As soon as possible. Do you promise?” Lucy asked.
"With your shield or on it, they used to say," laughed Tom.
"Stop that, son. This isn’t funny."
"As soon as possible," he said.
