HAPPY BOOK BIRTHDAY, JEREMIAH!
When a deadly virus decimates the majority of Earth's population, 16-year-old Sawyer Bradshaw finds he is both immune and alone in a world that has descended into violent chaos. Armed with only his estranged father's shotgun, and an unrelenting desire to stay alive, Sawyer discovers that he not only has an uncanny knack for cheating death, but also for taking lives. Still, it is not long before he meets his match in a fierce and cunning teenage girl named Sara and by her side Sawyer emerges as more than just a natural-born killer, but also as a leader among men. Nevertheless, as quick as the young survivors fall desperately in love, they find themselves caught up in a series of conspiracies and twisted struggles for power, and they soon realize that more often than not, love, betrayal, and death, tend to walk hand in hand.

Where does the inspiration for your character development come from? How do you decide which is the best fit for this particular story?
I think that, like many authors, much of the inspiration for my characters comes from my experiences in real life, and the people in it. That’s not to say that one can’t find inspiration in books and movies, etc., but most, if not all, of my characters have attributes pulled from real individuals, flaws included, and I like to think that is what makes them so relatable to the reader. When I wrote Dark Tomorrow: Rise of the Crow, I wanted the world to be as realistic as possible, and by drawing on actual living individuals to craft my characters, I think it added to the overall realism of the story. Of course, it’s also important that your characters “fit” your story, and it’s not uncommon to completely cut characters or re-imagine their personalities at some point in your writing. Really, I think if a writer is seeking to create a convincing and engaging world, developing characters based on the real world is always a good choice. People sometimes say you should never upset a writer because they can make you into a villain in their next book--and I can tell you that there is definitely some real truth to that!
