Sophie Hayes Foundation An interesting thing happened while I was writing Zander’s Island. I came up with the name Zander and Jenna while substitute teaching in a local Tacoma school. The names were taken from an attendance roster. When the book was almost finished, I found a book called Trafficked at the library. The main character is named Jenna! If you haven’t read Zander’s Island, that’s the same name as Zander’s girlfriend who gets kidnapped by Estevan.
