Interview with Michelle Garza and Melissa Lason:

1. Our inspiration came from Melissa watching an interesting television show about how some people believe the Mayans actually migrated up into the southern parts of the United States and she thought it would be a unique idea for a story, of course being horror writers we had to make it bloody and creepy. We already had a interest in Mayan culture, but researched their mythology and found their depictions of the underworld and thought that was exactly what we wanted to do with the story, take a group of people and leave them in Xibalba, the Mayan equivalent of hell.

2. Our main characters are Wes and Alissa, both are kinds nerdy and very different than their traveling companions who are more like the prom queen and star football players in high school. Wes and Alissa are faced with traversing the darkness of Xibalba in an attempt to survive the torture there and being hunted by its malevolent denizens seeking to kill them.

3. This is a standalone…for now. It definitely could lead to a sequel or prequel and we won’t deny the pull to continue the story but for now it’s a stand alone.
