Today, we are celebrating the debut novel MORE by T.M. Franklin, available October 4th from The Writers Coffee Shop Publishing House.
MFN: Welcome! I'm so glad you joined us today. I just finished MORE and found the mythology fascinating. How did you come up with it? What inspired you?
TM Franklin: The original inspiration came from the mention of the mysterious “Nephilim” in the Bible – when “sons of God” went to “daughters of men” and had children with them. This was evidently part of the wickedness that led to the Great Flood of Noah. This forbidden relationship led to the concept of the Half-Breeds in MORE and the rest developed from there.
MFN: You say in your author's note that you wrote this novel during NaNoWriMo. Did you outline it beforehand? Was this an idea you had for a while?
