I became a published author on November 21, 2011, when I published my first e-book version of Child of Prophecy. I was sure I was going to eventually marry my boyfriend, so I decided to write under my initials and maiden name: T. N. Hayden. (He proposed, and I accepted, on December 22, 2011.) I rewrote Child of Prophecy in 2013 when I published my first paperback, and I updated my e-book version as well. Then, I wrote and my third edition of Child of Prophecy in 2015, which is the current version.
But due to the changes in the different editions, the date which marked me a published author was lost on my books. When I decided to publish my last Prophecy Series book, I originally planned for November 30, 2021. However, I decided to publish on my 10-year-anniversary instead. The first publication of a Prophecy Series book was November 21, 2011. My final publication of a Prophecy Series book is November 21, 2021!
I had a blast wrapping everyone's stories, especially Kurtis and Faryn's story. I love reunions, and this book has plenty.
I also loved Ruccis. The group was inspired by my group of friends when I worked at Costco. Each of the six members in Costco was inspired by my co-workers and myself. While writing the series, the characters grew more dynamic and took their own paths. I was super happy with how Rickie, Angie, Jeff, Jon, Drew, and Montiel's stories ended.
I planned the ending for Jeff, Jon, and Montiel at the beginning. However, Rickie, Angie, and Drew's endings were surprising. Rickie and Angie's endings shaped more while I was editing Child of Redemption, and Drew's was decided while I wrote Child of Promise.
The cover is the only in Prophecy Series (books) to feature a man. Craig is pictured on the cover. The only other man who is featured on a cover is Oliver on Child of Family, which is a collection of short stories. Both cover photos were from Adobe Stock.
