I love dungeon scenes. I know, it’s strange. I trace my love of dungeon scenes back to Kate DiCamillo’s The Tale of Despereaux, one of my childhood favorites. There’s just something so wonderfully terrible about dungeons. So naturally, I couldn’t resist putting my characters into one. In each narrative, there is at least one dungeon scene, (though Felix’s and Anthony’s are somewhat combined). I really enjoyed creating the dungeon. I could almost see it, feel the terror of the character going into it.
The dungeon beneath the castle in Theotocop is completely dark, filled with rats, reeking refuse, and moaning prisoners. I wouldn’t want to go there myself, but to send my characters there…well, that’s the stuff stories are made of. I can’t say that the dungeon scenes in the book are as good as they were in my mind (certainly the one containing the characters Hanna and Sam isn’t), but still they convey the horror and utter despair contained in the dungeon beneath the castle.
You can read more about the dungeon in Across the Stars, now available on Amazon Kindle. The print version should be ready soon, as well.

I am a 19 year old home-school graduate and a Christian children's book author. I'm involved in politics, and I play the violin. I make a lot of my own clothes and I love taking care of children. I generally blog about my books, but I also have an indefinitely running series on my favorite fictional characters. My friends' very awesome books seem to pop up around here quite often. I rarely post reviews here anymore, but my sisters and I regularly review books and movies at ShireReviews.blogspot.com I hope you enjoy your time here on my blog!
