About Jennifer and Christopher Martucci

Jennifer and Christopher Martucci hoped that their life plan had changed radically in early 2010. To date, the jury is still out. But late one night, in January of 2010, the stay-at-home mom of three girls under the age of six had just picked up the last doll from the playroom floor and placed it in a bin when her husband startled her by declaring, “We should write a book, together!” Wearied from a day of shuttling the children to and from school, preschool and Daisy Scouts, laundry, cooking and cleaning, Jennifer simply stared blankly at her husband of fifteen years. After all, the idea of writing a book had been an individual dream each of them had possessed for much of their young adult lives. Both had written separately in their teens and early twenties, but without much success. They would write a dozen chapters here and there only to find that either the plot would fall apart, or characters would lose their zest, or the story would just fall flat. Christopher had always preferred penning science-fiction stories filled with monsters and diabolical villains, while Jennifer had favored venting personal experiences or writing about romance. Inevitably though, frustration and day-to-day life had placed writing on the back burner and for several years, each had pursued alternate (paying) careers. But the dream had never died. And Christopher suggested that their dream ought to be removed from the back burner for further examination. When he proposed that they author a book together on that cold January night, Jennifer was hesitant to reject the idea outright. His proposal sparked a discussion, and the discussion lasted deep into the night. By morning, the idea for the Dark Creations series was born.
The Dark Creations series, as well as the Arianna Rose series, are works that were written while Jennifer and Christopher continued about with their daily activities and raised their young children. They changed diapers, potty trained and went to story time at the local library between chapter outlines and served as room parents while fleshing out each section. Life simply continued. And in some ways, their everyday lives were reflected in the characters of each series.
As the story line continues to evolve, so too does the Martucci collaboration. Lunches are still packed, noses are still wiped and time remains a rare and precious commodity in their household, but it is the sound of happy chaos that is the true background music of their writing. They hope that their work, though penned for a young adult audience, will be appreciated by the young of every age, and that all enjoy reading it as much as they enjoyed writing it.

Review by: Merissa Sheppard on Jan. 24, 2017 :
The Dark Creations Box Set comprises of the first three books in this series - Gabriel Rising Part One, Gabriel Rising Part Two, and Resurrection. Melissa is part of a trio of best friends, all different, but perfectly matched. However, Melissa constantly puts herself down. She gets into a bad situation with one of the popular school jocks and is worried about becoming the school joke. However, she also finds herself being attracted to a new boy in school, Gabriel. Gabriel is at school to learn how to interact with other students. Due to his unique abilities, this is the first time he has mixed socially with people his own age. There is good in this box set, there is evil - a mad scientist, an experiment gone wrong, an experiment gone right that has now developed feelings and insubordination, high school, friends, and enemies.

Although this is, at heart, a young adult paranormal/science fiction romance, there is plenty of action and suspense to keep most people happy. In fact, there are even some parts that are quite gruesome to read and leave a lasting impression. Well written, although with repetition in places, and with no editing or grammatical errors to disrupt the reading flow, this is a young adult book to get lost in, whilst you think on what might happen to Dr Frankenstein's teenager in love.
