What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I really felt like I had a story to tell in me.
I had grown up reading a lot of heroic epics by Homer (The Iliad and The Odyssey), and by J.R.R. Tolkien.
My favorite storyteller though, was Robert Ludlum and I modeled my writing after his style. The thought of bringing something to life that wasn’t there before, just… drew me in like gravity. Once this story took a hold in my mind it just had to be written, it just had to be finished.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
I think my characters came about naturally, once I knew the kind of story I was going to write. I knew I needed a hero, I debated on him having a love interest and finally gave in to that idea. He definitely had to have a mentor and I filled in with a best friend and a few more supporting characters. On the ‘other side’ as it were, was the main antagonist and his lackeys. Finally, there were the gods that appear in this first book. It was then a matter of fleshing out the characters as needed, throughout the plot.
“Fool!” Matilom said as his eyebrows creased together in an intense frown. “We all had to keep our lips sealed all these years to keep you alive. If Sidion Vror had gotten the slightest hint of the possibility of your survival, he would have turned the entire kingdom of Angweleth upside down just to find you. And the bloodshed and all the people who would die during that search would still be nothing compared to the disaster and destruction that awaits humanity should you walk away now. You asked me why I never showed up. Why I never walked in with words of truth? Because I didn’t have the heart to bring up another boy who would become like a son to me, only to stand by their side while the life bled away from them! I wanted you to live some semblance of a normal life because I knew the day I stepped into your life, I would have to take you away from every form of happiness you might have. Your father fought and gave his life to give you a chance and to give humanity another day to live and exist. And yet, even on his dying breath, he was thinking of you. He would never lay eyes on you again and it was crushing his heart. If you agree to accept your heritage, by the gods I swear, I will take you away. There will be hard times ahead but I promise you one thing. I will do my best to make you the greatest king Terrianus has ever seen. And it is my wish that this time, you will bury me instead.”
