At my first book festival, someone asked me a question that caught me off guard, so I didn't have an answer for him at the time.  How did I, a female, end up writing about a male protagonist? My answer was a stupid one.  "Well, most demigods were male in myths."  No wonder he just put the book down and walked away.  The truth is, when I am writing, I can be whoever I want to be.  I can be male, female, short or tall, successful or dejected.  Anyone.  Anything.


And another question I get asked is, "which character is based on you?"  And the answer to that, is all of them.  They are all a part of me, some just the smallest or rarest parts, but still me.  Who hasn't felt vanity?  Even if just for a moment?  Then you know how it feels to be vain.  You can roll that into a character so wrapped up in herself that she can't think of anything else.  And who would be the inspiration for that?  Why me, of course.  If I have ever felt the feeling, then I can write it, and imagine it, and create a character to embody it. 


So how did I end up writing about a boy who is a demigod?  Because he's me.  I felt it and embodied it myself so I could write it all down for you.  I am all of my characters, even the male son of a god.

I stated that i used to be going to ensure i get on my mat every day
for as a minimum half-hour. For the maximum part, i have been able to
do that <a href="https://www.prohomeworkhelp.com/">I Need Someone To Do
My Homework</a>
. I’ve best neglected days, and there have been a couple of days in
which I’ve only had time for mins.

I have seen many victims of this scam and there could be more if we are
not taking the necessary precaution. <a

No doubt, women work extremely well in every single activity they take
part and the importance of their education is extremely vital. Your
dialogue about the education of female is an extraordinary dialogue <a

and you have deliberated really beautifully for the education of women.<br />
