Using Stock Image AI through App Sumo and am experimenting to create character art for the Sassy Saints Series. Sabiha is the main character that started the series. Originally inspired by my grunge-loving ways as a teen, she became who I wished I had been-fierce and tough, someone who didn't care what others thought because she had grown up with a mother who was a bipolar sufferer and so developed a tough veneer, loyal to a fault with a sarcastic mouth that got her in trouble. I gave her some of my favourite adolescent memories of mischief.
The Sassy Saints series is about six young people searching for identity and belonging. The first two are out: Sabiha's Dilemma and Alma's Loyalty. The third, Jesse's Triumph, is soon to be published.
