Conquering The Flying Mountain

Ian Hollis Author Interview

And so Began the War follows a young roboticist who is swept away on an adventure to stop a war after a powerful government vies for control of a technologically superior nation. What were some sources that informed the development of this novel? 

I’ve been a fan of science-fiction and fantasy my whole life, so things like Star Wars, Doctor Who and even a small touch of Game of Thrones, definitely played their parts in inspiring the creation of the world and how I approached some of the story telling.

Zoe Evelyn Lionheart is an intriguing character. What were some ideals you wanted her character to embody?

An unwavering relentlessness for her passion (Robotics), and how that is a main theme in her life, not something she puts off to the side while ‘life gets in the way’ (Her love of robotics is the way!). That, and bravery in the face of adversity, regardless of what the potential outcome may be.

What scene in the book did you have the most fun creating?

Oh, gosh … All of them! But if I have to pick just one, probably where Kensington is ‘conquering the flying mountain’ (i.e. the dragon).

Do you have plans to write more books in this world?

Yes, but I’m currently writing a book in my other series The Cities & Villages Saga. So once that’s done and dusted, I’ll likely revisit this world, although not necessarily as a direct sequel.
