Please welcome mother-son team Wendy and Charles Siefken. I know you’ll love them as much as I do.
You’ve been contacted by the Association of Libraries from the Alien Planet of Zaolia. They want to know the five most important novels in all of Earth’s history. Which five novels do you give them?
There are too many books that are equally important to narrow it down to just five books of Earth’s history. It depends on whose version of history you want or feel is most truthful.
Who is your favorite author, and how did they inspire you to write?
For Charlie, its Christopher Paolini because he also was a kid in high school when he wrote Eragon and for me it has to be either Rick Riordan or Louis Lamoure.
When you write do you take notes, organize your characters and plot, or you write freely as you go?
We pretty much write freely as we go. We do at times write some things down if we have an idea at work or when we are out and about we jot ideas down so we don’t lose them.
Where does your inspiration come from?
Our ideas come from everywhere, games, movies, books, shows or just plain life.
Do you write about your personal life experiences in your stories?
No, it’s pretty much all make believe.
What is your favorite scene in your story?
Our favorite scene is the ending and how it leaves you hanging and wanting more!
Are the characters in your story based on people you know?
Some of the characters are based on people we know but for the most part they are all make believe.

Bio Charles Siefken (1992-present) is a recent graduate of high school. This is his first book of many to be published. He currently resides in rural central Iowa where he enjoys reading sci/fi books and playing video games among other things. He currently works at a local auto mechanics shop and will be attending college this fall to get a degree as well. Christopher Paolini was his inspiration to become a writer.
Wendy Siefken (1966-Present)Currently working full time from home on writing stories and now a virtual assistant to those in need of an extra pair of hands online. Wendy lives on a farm with her family and enjoys reading, gardening and other activities with her family and friends. This is our first publication with many more to follow. This all started as a school project for her youngest son and business partner, Charles Siefken, which has grown into a desire to be published.
The book is a journey into the fantasy realm of what if’s. Zombies took over the world? What if werewolves were real? What if dragons were really not from earth but from another planet? I hope you enjoy this YA book. This book is ideal for a young reader who you may not want reading a book with a lot of blood and gore. This book doesn’t have that. It has a story without all the graphics of a battle.
