Q&A with author, Alyson Noël:
What was your inspiration for the “Here and Now,” the magical realm where Riley lives?
Back when I first started working on The Immortals series, I did quite a bit of research on metaphysics and quantum physics and ghosts and sprits and the afterlife, etc, all of which sort of fed into the concept of the “Here & Now.” I guess in a way it’s how I hope the afterlife will be.
In what ways are you similar (or different) to Riley Bloom?
Actually, Riley and I share a lot in common. I know what it’s like to be the “baby” of the family, and though I hate to admit it, I’ve also been known to hog the microphone while playing Rock Band on the Wii! Writing Radiance was the most fun I’ve ever had writing a book. It’s been an absolute blast bringing Riley back, and I hope readers enjoy her adventures as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them!
