The Greek Mystery Man #BlogSix #AlysiaHelming #RealLifeStory

By the time we arrived at our hotel, my mind was spinning with excitement at my imagined ‘game’ and eager to learn more about this Mystery Man. I immediately broke all of my rules about not learning more about the real life people who inspired my characters, and went to Google, entering in the key words that I had used many months ago to find his picture in the first place... “dark hair, blue eyes male, actor or model...” But no luck...his picture was nowhere!

During the Summer of 2015, I was totally inspired and every day, I woke up with an important mission: write Protogenesis. In order to maintain consistency with my descriptions of the characters while I wrote, I followed a technique that I learned from screenwriting which was to use Google to randomly search and select one photo for each character from the internet that represented to me a visual snapshot of not only the “look” of the character, but also the “feeling” that I got from that particular photo. After some deliberation with Hannah, I finally settled on my ‘dream cast’ of characters. These photos included some well-known celebrities, as well as some that I had never heard of before.

Music to my ... Writing

August 1 2016. Alysia Helming, an American Novelist, partnered with Panik Entertainment Group Ltd, a major Greek record label, for the inclusion of an original song in Helming’s young adult fiction novel titled Protogenesis™, the first book of The Protogena Chronicles™ series.
