For as much as readers have endeared themselves to the Irish priest Father O’Sullivan character in the Superstars Trilogy, the disdain for the ruthless teenage menace, Patrick Benning is equally as fervent. Readers have seen the character evolve from tragic beginnings to a personality that harbours violence and mayhem.
It has been a rollercoater ride for readers following Benning’s evolution from an orphaned child to a teenager with an unquenchable thirst to kill. It has been both challenging and rewarding developing this character and I used the shock of his actions in the closing chapters of Book One, Evil Rises to setup how this character would play out the rest of the trilogy. Readers will see the character continue to evolve in Book Two, Vasallus until his full circle evolution is complete in Book Three, Songs for Survival.
