Apostles of Sera was my first book/series. My writing career began after I graduated from college and was job hunting. This was during the Great Recession so things were going pretty slowly for me and I needed an escape while living at home again with my family.
Apostles of Sera originated from a variety of sources, most notably Claymore by Norihiro Yagi. Other influences such as the monsters came from Aliens while the languages and environments hail from Louisiana, Germany, and even Japan. My own history with bowmaking and camping in the woods also feature here.
