#FindOutFriday Answers 18

Hello, everyone, and Happy (Good) Friday! These are the answers to the #TuesdayTrivia questions. How many did you get right? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. Vlad III of Wallachia - I have said many times that King Gerald from Casting Shadows was like Henry VIII of England with his many wives. There was another ruler I used. I based some of his ruthlessness from the fabled Vlad III, also known as Vlad the Impaler. This vengeful ruler was not only the inspiration for the novel Dracula, but was historically ruthless. I think the nickname says it all.

  2. Ella Enchanted - The book, not the movie, of course. The story is a retelling of Cinderella and features the main character's friend and later love interest, Prince Char. Name sound familiar? It's because it's the nickname of the King Consort of Klenard, Charlemagne, Nora's husband. The name stuck with me for years. When I created the character of Charlemagne, I knew that the nickname was perfect.

  3. Caribbean - The area south of the US was the inspiration for the Kingdom of Jast. The warmth, central location, and people were mixed together to form the Jastese people. I borrowed from many cultures and the history of the indigenous peoples there. More of this will be featured in the upcoming novels, From Across the Sea and In Fiery Autumn Dress.

Namaste, everyone! Have a great day!
