Thank you for your question. I just found it on my author dashboard. I apologize for my delayed response. Almost all of the teenage/young adults that are in my EVE series are based off my own children and/or their friends....not exactly but loosely. As the mother of three teenagers (when I started the series), my house was always packed with them and most became my 'adopted' children. I enjoyed including characters of their 'likeness' while also embellishing other areas of their personalities. As for the adults, almost all are a product of my overactive imagination although a couple are named after people who are dear to me such as Mr. Rand (who was my favorite psychology professor in college), Mrs. Neal-Beliveau (my mentor and advisor in college), and Coach Smith (who was my Coach for many years when I played in High School).
The storyline was honestly a very bizarre dream I had about having the gift of EVE. When I woke up I jotted down a new notes and it grew from there. I have always loved history so it was a lot of fun doing research on the 19th century and comparing the differences with the world we live in.
I am so happy you enjoyed the series! The spin-off, the Spirit Quest series, is slated to kick off late next winter.
Take care and have a wonderful week!!
Best,
~A.L.(less)
