Where are they at in this series?
We have 4 more books to go! The 4th installment, Shadoworld, will be out this year (2015). The date is forthcoming. I don’t want to give away too much, but I’d like to give you an idea of what to expect. I like to think of books 1-3 as Wendy’s training wheels. It’s been all about her and how she learns to deal with her ability that keeps improving and changing. Throughout books 1-3, a lot of questions have subtly arisen that you might not have given much thought to, engrossed as you were in Wendy’s more immediate problems. The ending to book 3 may have you wondering what more Wendy has to offer this story, but book 4 begins Wendy’s real test, the one she’s been prepared for up until this point. So stick with us! It’s going to be an unforgettable ride with more action, new characters, and higher stakes!
What is the premise of the Colorworld Series?
I have a love of superheroes, and I’ve always been intrigued by the idea of superhuman abilities. But I’m also a realist. I think way too much, and my sanity depends on putting everything I encounter into context, and that means I need to be able to relate to stories. I need to believe on some level that they could actually exist. When I began to write Colorworld, I wanted it to be the story I had always wanted to read. So this is a superhero story. One without spandex and capes, and full of real people with everyday problems… but also some not-so-everyday problems. It’s about real talents that have been enhanced and existing in this world that we all now know. In comic books and movies we find superhuman abilities so fantastic so as to defy all logic, and the heroes are always battling some monumental enemy, intent on saving the world from evil that presents itself in new and varied forms. Colorworld is a different kind of story, intent on exploring what “realistic” superpowers would really be like. And I don’t know about you, but I think our tiny planet has plenty of problems without having to invent new ones. Colorworld puts realistic superhumans in our world, in our day. And then we get to watch what happens.
