I’m excited to introduce a new guest interview for our latest installment of Five to One. Meet Kathy Davey of Bumblebee Creations.
Who are the Bryant Brothers? Finally, we find Gabe, the Bryant Brother, who was proximally close but chose to remain distant. Why the chip on the middle child’s shoulder?

My graphic designer first asked me the question and recommended I write a series about them in a blog post. I mentally scoffed, “They don’t exist. How would I do that?” So I asked her what she meant. “The brothers came from somewhere,” she told me. “Maybe they were people you knew, or they developed from stories you heard, or perhaps they were born from experiences you had. Come on, share.”
Five to One is a blog series that brings aspects of my books to life. With each new release, I’ll be interviewing an expert in an area integral to the story—an occupation, experience, etc. I will send them five questions, requiring five answers for the first, four for the second, and so on. What I
