Interview with Ann Snizek

Tell the readers about yourself.

Well, I’ve loved books since childhood. Always running away into the pages that fed and freed my imagination. Friends from elementary school recall recess time with me sitting under the playground structure, notebook and pencil in hand, writing my newest escape. Learning is one of my main goals in life. With an infinite stream of information just waiting for us to drink it in, I know that longing will never be fully quenched and I love it. I have many interests and hobbies, but I’d be lost in life if I couldn’t write. It’s part of who I am.

What was the inspiration behind TO ERIS – HUMAN?
I find the unknown fascinating. The desire to escape and disappear as an awkward child reflects somewhat in this book. The feeling of not belonging, fears of loss, rejection, and even the future are commonalities around the world to some extent. I wanted to provide a strong female protagonist that could rise above her troubles and prove to herself that she was more than her past. The play on words for the title show this also.

What is the idea behind the Lucents?
This is a bit tricky to explain as I don’t want to give too much away. For: Giva de Vine, Payton Chronicles 2 will answer many questions about the lucents themselves. What I can tell you is that they have always existed on earth as long as humans. Their physical state has naturally kept them hidden and isolated in many ways. Despite their technological advancements, they are extremely attuned to the planet. Continue reading
