Hi Stefania,
Thank you so much for writing to me!
Stirling is one of my favourites too ;) I think the most difficult (and most important) feature in dystopian writing is giving your central character a strong network of allies and enemies. The dystopian genre is usually about a band of characters acting together to overthrow the force which oppresses them, so it was important to me to give Raja strong, likable friends whom the reader could relate to. She's a tough heroine, but she can't take on the world alone! Stirling is a good grounding force for her because they are opposite in a lot of ways, and he makes her stop and think before just rushing into the mission. It's tricky to keep everything in balance! Thank you for your excellent question.
If you haven't done so already, please consider leaving an Amazon review for Legion Lost. Good reviews are the greatest gift you can give to an author!
Lots of love,
K.C.

Support Diversity in YA Fiction - Nominate Legion Lost

Picture Ethnicity. Androgyny. Gender Equality.

It's time to see these things hit the mainstream in young adult fiction. For the past year, I have been trying to gain publication for my new sci-fi dystopian action series 'Legion Lost', and I have been met with rejection everywhere, for the same reason: the heroine is 'too abnormal'.

“I'm looking at the ruins of my own existence and knowing, with a sickening certainty, that my old home and my old life have been truly destroyed.”
K.C. Finn, Legion Lost

“I love you, you know. The thought had escaped before I had a chance to rein it in. Henri caught his breath in his throat; the sombre weight in his chest lifting away like a pressure valve had been removed. He couldn't reply, certainly not with the two gate guards standing right next to him, but I felt his face relax into a smile.”
K.C. Finn, The Mind's Eye

“The kiss has started something bigger between us, and the lies I'm telling Stirling will only get worse from here on in.”
K.C. Finn, Legion Lost

“When I was about eight, I decided that the most wonderful thing, next to a human being, was a book.”
Margaret Walker

“I generally avoid temptation unless I can't resist it.”
Mae West

“Tis strange - but true; for Truth is always strange,
Stranger than Fiction”
George Gordon Byron

“Am I really standing here, conversing with a bloody unicorn?" Tiffy was certain her mind had finally left the building.”
T.J. Loveless, Lucky Number Six

“I don't like people who have never fallen or stumbled. Their virtue is lifeless and it isn't of much value. Life hasn't revealed its beauty to them. ”
