This is Love

My daughter was four when brainstorming for Water Racers began. When she was even younger she used to come up with very strange names for her toys and stuffed animals - names like “Hinga,” “Heppu,” and “The Oonis Ongen.” I was a bit taken back when she came up with such a simple name like “Love” for her character, but now I think it’s wholly appropriate.

Love might be my favorite character because I see so much potential in her. She’s smart, she’s vulnerable, and she’s willing to bend the rules to achieve her goals. And she has a robot.

We’ve already started talking about “Book Two” and Love is front and center. This will be her story and as my daughter grows up, Love will continue to evolve right alongside her!
