Will there be a sequel to The Only Thing to Fear? 

Yes, kind of! Let me explain: there will be a companion novel to The Only Thing to Fear that will be published in Spring 2018. This novel will take place in the world of The Only Thing to Fear, but it will feature a bunch of new characters who live in the Western American Territories and who are fighting the Japanese (AKA the Empire of the Rising Sun). 

Can you tell us more about this companion novel to The Only Thing to Fear? 

Sure! It's about a sixteen-year-old guy named Ren who grows up on the Californian coast, in a world where the Japanese won WWII and colonized the western half of the United States. This book will feature, in no particular order: super powers, spies, a big undercover mission, a fancy ball, a huge battle, and maybe some lighthearted moments tossed in! 


Will Zara or Bastian or Uncle Red be featured in the companion novel to The Only Thing to Fear? 

Maybe! Maybe not! I have to keep a poker face, I'm afraid. 


How did you get the idea for The Only Thing to Fear? 

I'm a big history nerd  +  I love asking 'what if' questions  +  I adore X-Men

=   An idea for a book! 


Who designed your website?

Moi! In my free time (ahem, before I had a kid) I taught myself some basic HTML and CSS. I also stared at a lot of blog code until it began making sense. (Yes, really!) I've also designed blogs and websites for friends and family. It's a fun hobby for me. Currently I only design in the Blogger platform, but I'd love to teach myself Wordpress and Squarespace soon.
