Smashwords Interview

What made you want to explore this fictional world and what gave you the inspiration to write this novel?
I created the fictional world so I could explore the influence of illogical fear on human behaviour. In the story, behaviour related to unwarranted or misdirected fear is referred to as “khaos”.
The opportunity to combine imagination and logic was irresistible. I wrote in the “young adult” genre because I thought it was the best platform to facilitate an entertaining and inspirational story.
Tell us about the book genre. Why does the story description say it was written for young adults but may be enjoyed by everyone?
It’s a unique book with respect to genre. Much of the story takes place in a small prairie town. There are sci-fi and alternative history components; along with adventure, humour and inspiration. With a teenager as the main character, Lucid World delivers an entertaining feel-good read for all ages.
