More About the Author

About the Authors

Jennifer and Christopher Martucci hoped that their life plan had changed radically in early 2009. To date, the jury is still out. But late one night, in January of 2010, the stay-at-home mom of three girls under the age of six had just picked up the last doll from the playroom floor and placed it in a bin when her husband startled her by declaring, "We should write a book, together!" Wearied from a day of shuttling the children to and from school, preschool and Daisy Scouts, laundry, cooking and cleaning, Jennifer simply stared blankly at her husband of fifteen years. After all, the idea of writing a book had been an individual dream each of them had possessed for much of their young adult lives. Both had written separately in their teens and early twenties, but without much success. They would write a dozen chapters here and there only to find that either the plot would fall apart, or characters would lose their zest, or the story would just fall flat. Christopher had always preferred penning science-fiction stories filled with monsters and diabolical villains, while Jennifer had favored venting personal experiences or writing about romance. Inevitably though, frustration and day-to-day life had placed writing on the back burner and for several years, each had pursued alternate (paying) careers. But the dream had never died. And Christopher suggested that their dream ought to be removed from the back burner for further examination. When he proposed that they author a book together on that cold January night, Jennifer was hesitant to reject the idea outright. His proposal sparked a discussion, and the discussion lasted deep into the night. By morning, the idea for the Dark Creations series was born.
The Dark Creations series, as well as the Arianna Rose series, the Planet Urth series and the Demon Hunter series are works that were written while Jennifer and Christopher continued about with their daily activities and raised their young children. They changed diapers, potty trained and went to story time at the local library between chapter outlines and served as room parents while fleshing out each section. Life simply continued. And in some ways, their everyday lives were reflected in the characters of each series.
As the story line continues to evolve, so too does the Martucci collaboration. Lunches are still packed, noses are still wiped and time remains a rare and precious commodity in their household, but it is the sound of happy chaos that is the true background music of their writing. They hope that their work, though penned for a young adult audience, will be appreciated by the young of every age, and that all enjoy reading it as much as they enjoyed writing it.

Good start but again I thought I'd gotten a full novel, not a short story. I was just getting into the story when it ended. Followed by a request to purchase more. Don't like being tricked this way.

Don't think that only the young like a good story. I am 77 years old and anxiously awaiting the next part of the book.

I fell into this book and was surprised that it turned out to be a good page turner. I was much disappointed that it ended abruptly.

I am addicted! I need the next books! Loving the series! Very reminiscent of the Frankenstein series from Dean Koontz! Left hanging. Must have the rest of the books. Character development is great! Storyline flows with no gaps. Amazing read.

I found this book by accident while searching for something to read. It was offered as a freebie so I thought I would give it a chance. So glad that I did. It was suspenseful and thrilling without all the gore. I found it very enjoyable reading. I couldn't wait to get to the second book. I found myself captured by the main characters. Even though this book is supposedly for the younger generation I really enjoyed it. I would recommend it highly.

I tried this book because it was free. The second book is only 99 cents so I also bought that. I haven't read it yet, but I just finished the first one. It is a really good story line and the characters are really likeable. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because it is not detailed enough or long enough. Also, there are a ton of editing errors. But the storyline is so unique and interesting that the errors are easily overlooked. Also, I am sure they are Indie authors and do their own editing or only have one editor, and I know if I wrote a book that I had to edit myself it would be full of errors! Heck this little review I'm doing is full of them lol So, I am not basing my review of the book on the errors, I just wish they had put my more details into the book and I wished that they had stretched the book out some. But, I am looking forward to reading the next book :)
