The Intent Behind “Crystal Moon”

Crystal Moon is the first book I published that isn’t a part of the running series GoandriaCrystal Moon is something that has a lot of meaning to me.  It is inspired by real people, real events, and real lessons in an Urban Fantasy setting.

A few years ago, I read Dracula and was intrigued by the letter format.  It felt like a good way to get insights into what the characters were feeling while being able to show the story more subtly.  Writing in first person was challenging, especially with the first draft.  It was difficult not to riddle the pages with “I” while at the same time having it flow in a way a real journal would.

One of my goals for Crystal Moon is to step outside of my comfort zone.  Writing Fantasy is what I know and love, with the typical swords, magic and bows.  Yet, as is the nature of stories, it morphed from my original idea of a comedy into an Urban Fantasy Thriller.

After rewrites and additions, it is finally available to the public, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did writing the story.  A lot of my heart and emotions went into it.  Come, laugh, cry, and shake your head with me.
