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 rewrote and published 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. 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 Ruccis 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.
