It all started when I was reading the Redwall series by Brian Jacques and watching The X-Files. Sounds like a wonderful mix, doesn’t it? XD It’s funny how one can get inspired. Anyway, I came up with the concept of a red fox who joined the FBI and had to go on this dangerous journey with twists and turns. I wanted them to be teen/tween adventure fiction books, but any age group can enjoy them. 🙂
Then, to think of a name for my character. Well, she was red…so, why not Scarlet? And don’t ask me how I came up with the last name Savine…because, I don’t remember how I did! A friend told me she looked it up and found that savin is another term for the Eastern Red Cedar! Funny, isn’t it?
So, I wrote the first book in less than a year. That’s not including editing it, designing the cover, and then publishing it. All in all, it took me a year to finish it.
The second book took me about the same time. But, I had difficulties with this one. I couldn’t figure out how to start it until a friend (she shall remain nameless, though she knows who she is) came up with the idea of Scarlet to have some long lost siblings. Jayden, Gideon and Amos were created! Personally, I like Jayden the best…don’t tell the twins I said that, though. 😉
The third book was easier and is the best out of all three, if I do say so myself. I added one of my favorite dog breeds (the Australian Shepherd) and added one last twist….
And then The FBI Chronicles was finished and completed in about three years. Here’s are the synopsis’ for all three and the pitch for the series over all…in case your interested in it. Go to my blog post How Do I Sell Books? to see how to create your own pitch! 😀
