Settings are such an important part of a novel. Many places that I have been to, or have only seen on the internet have inspired the settings on this book.
Durban is the nearest big city where I live. I didn’t attend the University but plenty of my friends did.
“Flower” is what Eucona means in their language. I wanted to have a planet that was beautiful and extraordinary.
I have been to this part of the Drakensberg more than anywhere else in this wonderful Natural Heritage Site. The town of Serenity doesn’t exist, but Winterton does.
