One of my favorite genres has always been science fiction because it presents a number of potential possibilities that science can produce such as robots, aliens, virtual reality, and so forth. When I write my series, I analyze how some of the character’s equipment, powers, and origins. For example, with Cyber Shadow I utilized the science fiction concept of the cyborg and how that technology could potential create a supervillain. With Tinisha Dolaira, I thought of the possibility of her race, high elves, coming from an alternate reality or parallel dimension where the laws of physics are considerably different from our own. Also, while the Genesis Spell’s supernatural effects are apparent on the Young Guardians, I also explored how it would effect them on a cellular level, which is an idea I got from genetic engineering as well as otherworldly energies that have yet to be discovered by science. These are just a few examples of how science fiction has influenced my work and how great of an impact it has had on my life.
