I am of Ghanaian descent and spent the first few years of my life in Ghana before moving to London which is where I have lived ever since. I completed an English Literature degree in 2000 and although I have always written in my spare time, I didn’t start writing full-time until a few years ago.
My first novel Dark Genesis was inspired by my thoughts on dehumanisation. I was fascinated by the ways in which people are able to dehumanise others, the impact it has on the psyche and whether it is possible for people to find their way back from being dehumanised. This led me to Luna and the ruins of a haunted chapel deep in the heart of Mississippi.

Hi Manoushka

I can't say!!! lol. The third book, which is narrated by Dallas, is finished and is getting a second round of edits. All I can say is that Dallas definitely keeps things interesting in the third book and that I believe in happy endings - although it might not be quite what people are expecting. Lol. That's all I can say for now. But I will keep everyone posted on the release date for the third book.

Thanks for your question and your kind words about the first two books in the trilogy:-)

All the best,

Hi Carla.

Thanks for your friend request and for asking such an interesting question.

When I started writing The Darkling Trilogy, I wasn’t sure myself that people who have been dehumanised can find their way back. But somewhere along the way, I decided that some people can find their way back. Avery is one of them. Others either never do move past their dehumanising experiences, or it takes them an incredibly long time to do so. I do believe that some people who have been dehumanised do go on to dehumanise, or oppress others, often in order to have the control/power they didn’t have. But not everyone. This is just my personal view which you’ll see played out in the trilogy.

Thanks again for asking such an interesting question. Feel free to ask more question or if you want me to clarify anything I've said.

All the best,

ADK. x(less)
