The world of the DISVNITVS Trilogy
DISVNITVS takes place in Eastern Kentucky in the fictional coal mining town of Nickelbox in Eastern Kentucky. The “World Building” phase of this novel took almost ten years to create. “True Curse” is the first book in this cliffhanger, paranormal suspense thriller.
What’s with the funny name and how do you say it?
The word “DISVNITVS” is based in Latin and is pronounced “di-soo-NEE-tooss.” But the first “oo” is long, like in “tool,” whereas the second is short, like in “book.” The “i” in the first syllable is like in “sit.”
DISVNITVS (Disunitus) means more precisely “disunited” or “separated”, referring to a male person or a thing of masculine grammatical gender. It describes the state of our society today.
