5 Things You Didn't Know About Righteous

  1. It took two months to write the first draft and four months to edit the book. By the time the book was published it went through eight different versions.
  2. The main character, Righteous, was inspired by two characters from other books/movies: Olive Penderghast from Easy A and Lizbeth Salander from The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
  3. Dustin’s name was Dennis in the original draft and he was not Finn’s brother. The name and story were both changed after receiving feedback from beta readers.
  4. The principal’s last name was originally Bane, and Righteous’ mom’s name was Lorraine. Both names were changed in the final version based on reader suggestions.
  5. The song Magda sings when she first meets Righteous is the same song Audrey Hepburn sings in the movie Breakfast at Tiffany’s. (An all-time favorite actress and movie of the author.)
