#TheFourFriday – the Mark

Here’s a new thing I’m going to start:

Every Friday, I’ll post something about how the real life “The Four” overlap with the fictional four Kota Warriors.
As some of you know, The Kota Series is based on what “The Four” (myself, my brother, and our childhood best friends Kaly and Luke) played as kids.  Each of us is represented by one of the four Kota Warriors (Bullseye, Rave, Tigris, Whitewolf).  So, I’ll be sharing personal quirks that carried over into fiction, fun/weird stories we played as kids, our childhood drawings, pictures related to The Four and The Kota, etc.
Should be fun, and it’ll give you an idea of how weird or little minds were as we created this story that, years later, turned into my book series.  🙂


First up, the Mark.
In the Kota story, each of “us” was born with a Mark on our arm/shoulder that meant we were destined to be the Kota Warriors.  In real life, I think we wanted to get tattoos of the Mark as soon as we came up with this, and when Luke (aka, Whitewolf) turned 18 we finally did it.  And since today happens to be Luke’s 28th birthday, I’m pretty sure that means our tattoos are 10 years old.
So that’s the story behind our matching tattoos.
