I write from the world around me, and the world around me is full of color.

Award winning author, EG Manetti has always enjoyed a vivid imagination and occasional scribbling. In 2010 she was struck by the inspiration for The Twelve Systems Chronicles. The draft of a single novel soon became three, and then more. In 2012, after several hundred thousand words, The Cartel: The Apprentice, Volume 1 was published, followed by seven other volumes. The latest, Chalice Bearer, released January 21, 2020. To date, the first two volumes have received bronze Reviewers Choice awards from Paranormal Romance Guild, and volumes three and five were finalists for the prestigious InD’tale RONE Award (Reward for Novel Excellence)

Others are simply names, although I try to pull from the full range of cultures.

With Lilian; it was her name from the first. I have no idea where it came from or why it is spelled as it is. The same is true of the Five Warriors and Adelaide—they and their stories emerged from my psyche full-blown.

Chrys honors my first love – I was 13. Although he spelled his name in traditional fashion.

Lucius took some time to settle – I wanted something that evoked the ruthlessness and warrior culture of ancient Rome, but also Rome’s commitment to law and order. According to ‘Behind the Names’ – Roman praenomen, or given name, which was derived from Latin lux "light". Two Etruscan kings of early Rome had this name as well as several prominent later Romans, including Lucius Annaeus Seneca (known simply as Seneca), a statesman, philosopher, orator and tragedian.

Katleen is a variation on the name of my best friend since childhood.

For Trevelyan, I wanted a foil for Lucius – so I went with the British Isles where the Romans struggled to gain and hold territory. Again, Behind the Names -- From a surname which was derived from a Cornish place name meaning "homestead on the hill".

Fletcher was originally Lionel (meaning lion), but I decided it was too close to Lilian and Lucius—creating associations, I didn’t intend.(less)

Great story about an abducted alien rescued by a heroic human. Throw in some really nasty, really alien aliens and it's a great read. My only quibble, the evil doers are so over the top evil.

This should have been a better book. As it is, the narrative was a bit wooden and sections dragged enough that I skimmed.
