What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
My passion for creating stories, eccentric beasts, and some inspiration from a friend helped the idea for my book become a reality. As I got into the writing world, making characters, thinking up new creatures, and imagining the reactions of readers to some of my favorite scenes, I couldn't wait to get my book out there.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My main character was based off of a few friends I had in elementary school; adventurous, brave, fun-loving, and sometimes can have outbreaks of emotion. My other characters, such as the king, had some inspiration from major leader characters from a couple of animated films.
It was a new day. School was about to be in session. Fiona was feeling
just a bit better. The siblings headed to school. When they got there,
there was a surprise not just for them, but for all of the other students
and employees. The school was completely demolished. It had been
eaten by little wood trolls.
Wood trolls were like termites, but slightly worse since they had
the same amount of intelligence as a mouse, which is smarter than any
termite. These trolls, just like termites, lived in colonies and loved
wood. They were gray with black hair that stood up on their head and
bared four arms and two legs. The little creatures were also roughly the
same size as a pinky mouse. Wood was their primary diet, hence their
“I told you we should’ve invested in those wood geckos,” Mr.
Gerald announced, shaking his head.
Wood geckos were named after their diet of wood trolls. Just
like most other geckos, these lizards could easily scale walls and other
surfaces, perfect for chasing down the trolls they desired.
“Or the school should’ve been built out of stones!” Mrs. Wright
“Welp, there goes the school,” Hayden said, slightly
“Looks like a day, errr… a few months off… maybe more,”
Fiona added. Hayden and Fiona just walked around the closer areas of
Sineria for a bit as everyone else headed home.
“Um, I’m uh, sorry about the whole, you know… snake thing,”
Hayden said, scratching the back of his head.
“It’s all okay,” Fiona told her younger brother. Hayden looked
at her and smiled. “I love you little redhead!”
“Love you big blonde!”As the siblings made up, a scream was
heard. An old, scrawny, dirty man was running away with something.
Hayden and Fiona pursued him.
“What’s he got?” Fiona asked. Hayden wondered the same
The man was surprisingly fast. He finally came to a stop when
he found himself cornered. He turned around to see that the brother
and sister had caught up to him. He was extremely dirty and shirtless,
baring only a raggedy loincloth. In addition to his substandard look,
he was also barefooted and had long, almost raptor-like toenails. He
possessed a few thin strands of hair on his head and was putrid like old
“Give it back!” Hayden demanded. “Whatever you stole!”
“No! It’s mine now! That woman should’ve had a better grip on
it!” In his dirty hands was a basket filled with fruit and bread.
“Alright now,” Fiona said, approaching the beggar, “I see that
we’re going to have to use force!” The beggar opened his mouth and
hissed. “What the hell!” The beggar took a piece of bread and threw it
at Fiona. “No! Don’t do that!” The beggar hissed one last time before
crawling away with the basket of food.
“Well, that happened,” Fiona said, feeling a bit weirded out.
“That was… strange,” Hayden added.
After spending nearly the entire day out, Hayden and Fiona
walked back home. The sun was setting. When they stepped on the
first step, they heard low rumbles. Fiona ignored them and went inside.
Hayden went to investigate. Max saw Hayden walking to the river
through the window and ran outside.
“Sssh, bud, I’m doing something.” Max stopped wagging his
tail and stared at the river. He followed his human brother close but
Hayden made it to the edge of the river. He could see ripples,
but they were closer to the edge than they were the previous day.
Hayden had an idea what it was. Caudatalis.
Caudatalis were large, monstrous salamanders, about the size
of a wild boar. They were gray and, like other salamanders, had moist
skin. With large, oblong heads, pale yellow eyes, teeth as long as a boar
tusk and sharp as a tiger’s canines, and thin ears that flopped over like
a lop rabbit’s, these beasts were an eccentric yet terrifying animal to
encounter without protection. To add on, caudatalis were the largest
freshwater animals of Europe.
Max began growling at the water. Hayden dared to walk closer.
Just as he made it to the edge, he caused some dirt to fall off bank and
into the river. This caused vibrations in the water, which was felt by
one of the deadly salamanders. One of them opened its eyes and looked
up at the surface. The creature swam up and poked the top half of its
head out to see what was going on. It saw Hayden and Max up on land.
The salamander blew water out of its nostrils aggressively. Hayden
didn’t even really notice the head until it went back underwater and
made bubbling noises.
Max’s great sense of hearing and smell were on high alert. He
was ready to attack. His teeth were bared, he was licking his lips, his
fur was standing up, his tail was wagging, and his ears were slightly
