Questions for Annalee
Thank you for all your questions, here are some of the responses:
1. Are Taylor, Lucian and the rest of the characters based on real-life people?
Each character has been created to fit the story. However, some of the characters have been loosely based on friends and family in my life. Sometimes they incorporate aspects of people I’ve met on my journey. It wouldn’t feel right if I didn’t include something of my life in the book.
2. Do you have any books you would recommend?
I love so many books it would take an eternity to list them all here. I always enjoy something new, mysterious and mind provoking. Stephen King is one of my all-time favourite authors, he drew me into the realm of possibility.
3. What kind of research did you do for The Celestial Rose series?
The first book took a lot of research. I visited Elvington so I could piece together the route from there to York, including little details in the book that ring true. The description of paintings in the nightclub is based on the artist’s own works, they are disturbingly amazing should you ever get the chance to see them. The history of the Dark Ones is based on myth and legend with the original vampires created by Lilith and Cain.
4. Is Enoch real?
Enoch is based on research I completed. As to its authenticity, now that would be telling.
5. What happens after book one?
Sorry guys but Taylor had to end on a cliffhanger. What happens next has already been decided so her fate is out of my hands. Its one for the Gods to decide.
6. Are you religious?
I don’t follow one path, I follow many.
7. How do you feel about fanart?
I love fanart and happily feature it on my site.
8. How can I keep up-to-date with new releases?
I’ll send out a newsletter with all new releases and recommended work. If you would like to subscribe please click here.
9. Where can I buy your books?
My books are sold exclusively through Amazon. However, you don’t need a kindle to read my books. You can purchase a paperback or download Amazon’s FREE Kindle app by clicking here.
