Spark the Flying Frog is a combination of many different aspects of my life.
For one, he’s gay, as am I.
He’s a multi-media artist, as am I.
He flies. Sorry. I am still working on that one.
He has many aspects of my own personality, yet makes decisions that I wouldn’t always make.
In my humble opinion, he spends way too much time on his art. And yet, I am, as well, simultaneously jealous, as that is a key secret to his wide success.
He definitely likes to take control, in situations, as much as he possibly can.
When he starts to learn magick, at first he is apprehensive, as he is quite confused to the benefits, and how this would even help with his art making.
Yet, as time goes on, he realizes that it serves as an extremely important and valuable tool to saving the planet of Light.
I definitely wanted him to be faery like, yet not a faery.
This is where the wings come in.
The kind of frog that he meets is, as well, extremely intelligent. He, in fact, has a college degree. His name is Petite. Aside from the fact that he gets Spark out of an extremely precarious situation upon meeting, they two’s personalities merge and coalesce perfectly together.
Why a frog?
I think that the frog form is really interesting.
There aren’t a whole lot of stories where frogs are the heroes.
I kind of feel for this important race, and wanted to do it justice.
Perhaps you will feel a little bit differently about frogs, after experiencing my books?
