Luis Ammerman Author Interview

Against All Odds is a historical romance novel that gives a Regency spin to the Cinderella story. What inspired you to write this story?

When I was a kid I love the story of Cinderella there was so many version of the story and movies based on Cinderella. I wanted to write my own version of the classic story and and bring it do a Regency era. There is one Cinderella story that stays to my heart is a book called Yeh-Shen by Ai-Ling Louie I found the story magical. So over the years I am grateful to write my own version of the classic tale.

Hazel is an intriguing and well developed character. What were some driving ideals behind her character’s development?

Hazel was inspired by my mom and big sister. I took inspiration of both them to make my character. After losing our father long ago. Our mom work 2 jobs to take care of us and my sister made sure that I was watch when our mom was at work. I took from each of them and put them in the blinder and Hazel came alive in my story. My mom with heart and working hard and never giving up. And my sister who is strong and heartwarming.

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

Making Hazel a strong person. Letting her know that she not along in the world. And there always a choice to make even when you have to give up the things you love to get away from the bad to find the good.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

At the moment I am working on a Suspense Thriller that takes place in 1888. I know it will be out next year. Crossing fingers.
