JENNIFER AND CHRISTOPHER MARTUCCI 

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 around and other household chores, 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. 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. 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.

Phenice Arielle

Before finishing her debut novel, Phenice Arielle wrote entertainment features for local newspapers, and is also credited for her work as an award-nominated singer-songwriter. Much like the main character in “The Phoenix Rising – Destiny Calls,” the creative native New Yorker studied journalism (but not at NYU like “Kay”), at the Pennsylvania State University.

It is both “Kay’s” and Phenice Arielle’s desire that you’ll take the journey (Fears and all) that is “The Phoenix Rising – Destiny Calls.”

Book Description: Cobbogoth is about a seventeen year old girl named Norah Lukens
who finds her famous archeologist uncle, Dr. Jack A. Lukens murdered in their
Boston home. Norah has no idea who had it out for her uncle until she receives
his graduation gift–his very first research journal. But the journal doesn’t
contain what Norah expects. Instead of the regular notes and facts, Norah finds
a firsthand account of her uncle’s discovery of the mythical city of the
Cobbogothians–a legendary people who descended below ground just before the
Cryogenic Ice Age. Now all Norah has to do is figure out what this discovery
has to do with her uncle’s murder, and why he left his life’s work in her
hands.

Author’s Inspiration:   Cobbogoth has been growing in my imagination for a long time, but
I would say it started when my 4th grade teacher read us the book The Grey King
by Susan Cooper from her The Dark is Rising series. Also, J.K Rowling’s world
building skills definitely influenced me as a writer, as well as a lot of
mythologies, particularly Norse, Celtic, Egyptian, and Hebrew. I also took a
lot of inspiration in science and physics, particularly Super String Theory as
well as from the History Channel’s “Ancient Aliens” series.

The more I write, the more I realize I can’t live without it. That
is the reason I am an author. I started telling stories long before I could
even write; I think some writers are just born with stories in their blood. I
write stories to make myself and other people happy, to help them see the world
in a different way, to have a voice. After I graduated from college, I knew
it was time to use my “voice” to tell the stories that had been
accumulating while I acquired the skills necessary to write them. That’s when I
started the Cobbogoth series. It’s been six years in the making and now I finally
get to share it with people! I hope people will read Cobbogoth because it’s
brought a lot of meaning to my life and I’d like to share that. It’s also a
worthwhile, unique story about some pretty universal issues, like the
importance of family and belonging, and what true love looks and acts like.
And, they should read it, because Book 2 is just about finished, and It. Is.
Awesome!!!

While responding to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, I got to experience first-hand the fury of a disaster and its devastating impact on people’s lives. I had experienced some disasters in my past, but during this trip it was more intense. I spent a lot more time traveling from site to site. The idea for the book came to me and slowly developed on those long drives back and forth. I didn’t know it at the time, but I was unintentionally learning and doing research for my book by responding to disasters, starting with Hurricane Katrina and continuing through the many other disasters I have responded to since then. The most interesting observation that I took away from these experiences was the profound impact that each individual played in the recovery.
