Guest Post – Inspiration for the series

Ever since fifth grade, I knew I wanted to be an author. In fact, I was writing short stories and stuff at that age for class and even won an award for “Most Likely to be an Author”. Once I got into middle school, I found myself writing little novellas for my friends (a series which MAY one day come to life for readers).
When I reached seventh grade, I was on a haunted hayride at a plantation in South Carolina. While on this ride through the woods, all I imagined was that there was some type of secret society of Monster Hunters, and they were out there protecting us right now. I envisioned the scene with a guy named Lucas Mason, who discovers his sister and her best friends are Monster Hunters. Kristen Mason’s best friend, Heather Hawkins, is now the main narrator of the series, and that scene has yet to happen, because I backtracked the story several years.
Once I realized that Heather Hawkins was a wonderful fit for the main character instead of Lucas, I decided to go all the way back before Heather even knew she was a Monster Hunter. This, of course, gave me the idea for Kadin, who is now Heather’s friend in the series. In the version that readers read now, Kadin is a 19-year-old Djinn that has become extremely close to the gang. In the original version, Kadin was actually an old man called, you guessed it, The Old Man, and was the leader of a species called the Unknown. Because of this, the series was originally called The Unknown and the first book was called Negative Energy before I changed the first book to Forbidden Darkness, making The Forbidden Darkness Chronicles.
The series was also originally only going to be three books, but after sitting in my head for several years, I eventually had enough story to write eight books (the fourth book is currently in the works). Finally, after some hard thinking, I decided to weave in some young adult issues, such as suicide and self-harm. The Darkness, a physical entity that was locked away in a cave called Majlis al Jinn, now runs rampant, and feeds off of the energy that people give off (hence the original title, Negative Energy). One of the main characters in the series, Hayden, finds himself being caught between good and evil all the time, and is one of the Darkness’s main targets.

 

As I finally completed the first three books, the next three are a huge focus for me. Clock’s ticking in this world these characters live in and the stakes are higher than ever.
The first novel, Forbidden Darkness, is free for Kindle, as well as my contemporary YA novel The Long Road Home. Thanks for having me!
