What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I was in high school and was thinking about what it would be like being trapped in a greenhouse and having to watch the world go by without you. It started as a short story and expanded to include nymphs and a risky escape.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I wanted a hero type character, but I wanted him to be deeply flawed and often cause more trouble than help because of those flaws. He means well, but gets into trouble because he's so absentminded and thoughtless sometimes. Rose was based off a former friend's personality. She was an impulsive risk taker.

It slithered like a slimy snake, clamping around her ankles. Panic clawed up her throat as she disappeared into the gripping darkness. Rose broke out of the void, darting towards an unknown destination on the eastern side of the forest. She was drawn to a river—why there, she didn’t know.<br>

His pale, translucent skin radiated a threatening frost, and his hair was so dark it seemed to suck the light from his surroundings. The pointed teeth in his mouth were bone white, and when he spoke to her he seemed to chomp on the words in anticipation of trying to devour her existence.<br>
