Thanks for the question. Elixir wasn't written as a "to be continued" book; it has a clear resolution at the end. That being said, though there won't be a sequel that's a direct continuation of the original story, there's definitely room to write a second book that takes Sean and other characters in Elixir and places them in a new situation. I haven't committed to writing one yet, however, there's a possibility I would in the future. At any rate, with the official launch of Elixir just around the corner, I should have some time to focus on writing again in the near future; I've been pretty busy the last couple months with the publication and PR for Elixir. I'll be writing again soon...whether an Elixir sequel or something entirely new. (less)

About a year and a half ago I had a simple idea to write something about a teenage genius who gets into trouble because of his intelligence. Though it was a cool concept, I didn't have an actual plot or any story substance. After thinking about the concept for a while, it started to come to life when I decided to weave in the love-story element.

Once I knew that Sean would have something to fight for - saving his girlfriend from Ebola - the supporting characters and the plot really started coming together and I was able to make an outline for a book. I started writing the actual chapters about a year ago.

As for motivation moving the idea along, music was very important. It really helped me get in the right head space to think about the initial concept in different ways and move it forward.

Thanks for asking!

-Ted
