When I started this series, the one thing I wanted, more than anything else, was to grow with my main protagonist. In life, bad things happen all the time, and they change who we are. I’m not the same person I was a few years ago. I’m definitely a different person than I was ten years ago. When I think back on some of the choices that I made in my younger years, I cringe and want to crawl under the nearest rock. So when me and my protagonist started our journey together, and she decided to make bad choices, I let her. She’s young and stupid right now, but if you give her a chance, she’s going to grow up like I did. It just might take a few books to happen.
