So what would you do, if you were the last person on earth? After the initial shock and horror of it all, you would want to find other people! You probably wouldn’t care about the big issues, you would be more concerned I think, about your own sanity.
These are just some of the thoughts I had in writing the series. I wanted to make Miriam and Jeremiah as different as possible. This is my attempt to have racial reconciliation within the story. Her being very tall, makes them even more unique. The neat thing about fiction is that it allows you to create a world that is better than the one we live in. I wanted to show love between people of different backgrounds. This allows me to explore culture, and how it would work in a new world.
From the beginning, I knew there would be a need for other people, instead of just the two. Adam and Eve can only go so far. And they needed people, not just to make the story interesting, but for humanity to continue. In upcoming segments we will see some other characters, including the good and bad within them. For me, a good story is about people. When I admire great literature of the past, it is always the characters, so wonderfully written about, that keeps me interested.
Thanks for reading!
