About the Authors

V.K. McAllister

 

We’re a husband/wife duo (Andrew and Sasha) with a unique approach to writing. We work simultaneously and in secret before combining what we come up with, resulting in dramatic and unexpected twists that surprise even us! Crazy? Yes, yes it is. But it’s surprisingly effective and a ton of fun. Every couple should this. Well, not write maybe, but something they love together. You get what we mean.

Because we are so different, we can play to one another’s strengths. Sasha is just freaking funny. The witty, clever, adorable kind of funny.  This worked perfectly for building the constant banter between Violina and Lux and made them very lovable. Meanwhile, Andrew was the brains behind the story. The whole thing is a giant intricately crafted jigsaw puzzle, but once you have all the pieces, the confusion melts away into a perfect and satisfying ending. He also has a knack for making the action sequences really vivid.

How did all this get started?

It’s not much of a secret that we’re a bit on the nerdy side. One fateful date-night in late 2013, we were playing Dungeons and Dragons, and the way we play is without manuals or pre-made stories or anything.  Andrew just makes up the story from his imagination and Sasha gets to experience it on an adventure. Well, by the end of it, we realized we had a story so fresh and original that (in our ever-so- humble opinion) surpassed the popular books/movies at the time—equal parts clever, hilarious and terrifying. From that day forward, we’ve been writing.

Also, one day Andrew wished we had a bunch of art for Inevitable Ascension, so he googled how to digitally paint and after some attempts, (some better than others) he came up with all the art found on inevitableascension.com and the cover.  So that’s pretty neat. Which reminds me of another reason being a duo is so good: If you want to toot your own horn, but don’t want to come off as bragging, just get your wife to do it for you!
