When I finished my first trilogy and two accompanying novelettes, I thought that was the end of the story. But then I began to envision my characters in new scenes that came after the end of my last released book. I was curious about what was happening and why. I started asking questions in my mind, and I'd get new scenes and information. It honestly seemed interesting, and new material kept coming. It was as if the story wouldn't leave me alone, demanding to be told. I believe when inspiration speaks, I should follow it.
The content of this book is more intense than the original trilogy and novelettes. I believe science fiction fans 14 years of age and older will enjoy this book.
We are told "write what you know." I don't believe that literally means that I should write stories about a middle-aged man with a family that lives in the Midwest. I believe it means write with authenticity. Use things from your life experience and fuse them into your works. Chances are, if you experienced something, others may have too. That commonality will provide a tangible way for people to connect and even relate to your characters and stories.
