A.D. Williams began this journey in a different but similar arena of storytelling as an artist, opposed to being a writer. In 1995, he studied Computer-Aided Drafting and then Computer Animation in 1998 looking to make it in the world of animation. In 2006, he then forged to establish a CGI Animation Studio and wrote his first script as the initial 3D animated project for the intended studio; however, failed to establish the studio and the project went nowhere. In 2010, he made the obvious decision to turn his original script into a novel to get his project to the public. As a child, he was an avid comic book reader and Japanese Anime enthusiast. He translated that love into his own style of storytelling. At age 16, he conceived the idea for this novel, only to write the screenplay 15 years later, then the subsequent novel series three years after.
