While searching for the HelixB88 anti-serum on the black market, Ava uncovers valuable intel that may help the rebels in their fight to bring down ISAN—the location of a hidden facility. But first, the insurgents must find the female citizens unexpectedly displaying powers without use of the Helix serum before ISAN captures them.
As the rebels join forces with other sectors, ISAN plans their destruction by using someone they don’t suspect at the rebel home base. A traitor within.
Now, Ava must make a dangerous decision, one that could risk their capture—or worse.

What process do you go through in creating visual background scenes to involve your audience the feeling they are in the story?
Before I begin, I looked at pictures through Pinterest or Google. Sometimes I do research. For example, I had to research on the type of guns used during the 16th century for my story, Jaclyn and the Beanstalk. I also had to research what they wore and ate. After I get a general idea on how the world looks like, I dive into the characters. I begin with the main character and who is around the protagonist to make the story come alive. You want to make it simply but realistic as possible. I try to concentrate on the five sense too—touch, hear, taste, see, and smell. And always use active voice verses passive one.
