Good question! When I first started writing TWA, it was nothing more than a character exercise: placing my own unique characters into the DK universe. But over the years, the story grew, and it became so much more than what I originally intended. David and I started collaborating, and now it is an officially licensed story set within the Dreamkeepers world.
The book is an official part of the DK franchise, and a royalty agreement is in place. As such, any money made from sales of the book support not only me, the author, but David and Liz Lillie as well.
