Why Ana isn’t using high tech if she is living in a futuristic society?

   Wow, after opening the email today I had several questions about why Ana isn’t using high tech if she is living in a futuristic society? The primary reason why she stays away from it she has a mad killer after her and to be plugging into the technical grill of the system is begging the killer to find you and come kill you. 


Her adversary is not a nice guy. He means business and really means to eliminate her. Her would be killer is very clever. He knows how to track someone using technology and she knows that he knows. So, she stays away from it and force him to get off his butt to come look for her. He knows that only one like himself is strong enough to kill her. But do not know the outcome of the battle between them, rather he will win. He is a planner, not a hotheaded fool who rush into things. That’s how he sits on the throne he rules from. He planned how eliminate those before him.


She isn’t v-chipped as most city dwellers are. That’s why I used a rural area as the start of her life. Because rural people are set in their ways and if they don’t like something they aren’t going to do it, no matter who say so.


   Secondly, I believe there’s more than one definition of futuristic. None of us knows what the future will look like. Not even Michael Nostradamus knew that and if John the Revelator knew, he didn’t write it. Since no one knows then I felt an author can create a futuristic society to look anyway he or she chooses. I didn’t go the traditional futuristic route because every book I have read with futuristic details were the same descriptions over and over.  I took a chance in breaking away from that mode established by writers like Gene Roddenberry, George Lucas, Aldous Huxley, and Ronald Dowl Moore although I enjoy their work very much but I reasoned, did they know something the rest of us didn’t as to why all the futuristic novels, books and movies are all alike? They all have the same Battlestar Galactica scenario? I love the books, movies and shows but did not want to incorporate them in my own writings. I figured there was enough evil right here on earth without any aliens bringing more.


   Like for example, cats; all cats do not look nor act alike. If they did, no one would know their cat from the neighbor’s cat. But yet, they are all still cats. A lion, tiger, panther, cougar, bobcat, cheetah, and leopard are all cats and all dangerous cats but they look or act nothing alike. I believe the same applies to a genre. It can be the same genre but doesn’t mean it has to have the exact same elements.  To me, personally, that makes things boring. I like to shake things up. Step out the boundary of things.  That’s what creativity is, creating things from your own imagination not merely copying someone’s imagination.   


   Just like I used witches and warlocks. I didn’t incorporate the modern definition of them neither. It isn’t scary enough. I created my own definition and incorporated the original definition as to what they would do and say.

Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
