Jessica Wynne Reisman:

2. Where did the idea come from for the book?

My love of a certain three-character relationship dynamic that appears in many pirate and swashbuckling movies (and others) but is never played out in a way that pleases me. Also my love of adventure/swashbuckling tales in general.

Rebecca Schwarz:

1. What is the title of your work in progress?

5. What is a one-sentence synopsis of the book?
