In Book III the Triumviratus Makenna’s dad’s soul is taken to the lowest level of Hell and her two best friends traverse the nine levels of hell to rescue her dad’s soul. What were some sources that inspired this novels development?
Certainly, a big influence was Dante’s Inferno. I even reference it in the book. Another big influence was my wife, Misty. She tends to push me to write more emotionally and graphically.
I enjoyed how creative this story is. What scene in the book did you have the most fun writing?
I really enjoyed writing the scenes when the boys are travelling through the Under realms. This for me was a no holds barred imagine-fest. When you are creating your own version of hell, there are no limits. The biggest challenge was making it original and real all at the same time.
Your characters continue to be as interesting as ever. What character do you feel you resonate with the most?
I would have to say the character I resonate with the most is the irascible, wise-cracking Fluffy. He is my humorous voice, and he is just fun to write.
What can readers expect in book four in The Chronicles of the Virago series?
In the next in the series, readers can expect love triangles, more secrets of Makenna’s origins, more from the twin-gift Emilyne and Noah, and a host of new colorful characters.
