Fan questions to author of the Order of the Dimensions series, Irene Helenowski!

Jessica Sawa What pulled you into science fiction? And How in the world were you able to keep each dimension in order. I mean it switched so fast and was so quick paced that I think I would have gotten lost while writing it. so how did you keep everything in order?

Irene Helenowski I was just watching some specials on the Discovery and Science channels on the multiverse theory and thought it would be cool to to think about what I could be doing in another dimension. And sometimes I think about having a life in more than two dimensions, thus the fast paced changes in my book.

Borko When do you usually write? Do you write in your mind first and then on paper?

Irene Helenowski I write whenever I have free time and I just jot down what comes to me on my computer.

Nadine Kimmage-Mosby Will you be writing anymore sci-fi books? Or will you try a different genre? Did you think your books would be this popular? How did you discover writing?

Irene Helenowski I'm still deciding what to write next. It might be science fiction or something related to biostatistics and my job, or even poetry which I have recently taken up.

Mandi Foster Davis What was your inspiration for the whole multiverse concept?

Irene Helenowski I was watching a special on it on the Discovery channel and just started thinking about what it might be like to live a totally different life in another dimension.

Nadine Kimmage-Mosby How do you find time? Will you try a different sci-fi genre? If you could, would you write them the same again? Or change the concept and characters slightly? How do you feel about the characters? Why is the bad guy so nasty? Can you relate to any of the characters? Do you dream about them?
Irene Helenowski I'm still deciding what to write next. One day, I think about poetry and another day I think about something totally different. And sometimes I do think about re-writing the trilogy. Some characters and plots are definitely from my life experiences and if I was having a bad day, you can tell from how nasty the villain became, LOL.
Nadine Kimmage-Mosby One more lol - whilst you were writing did you find yourself talking to the characters like they were real people?
Irene Helenowski Well, sometimes I dreamed about my characters; that was
surreal. Like I took in my laptop to a place called Zelov computer repair or I was collaborating on a
pediatric project with someone named Maggie, LOL.

Donna Bond Are your characters based on any people in your real life?

Irene Helenowski Some stories really are based on real life experiences.

Mandi Foster Davis Can you tell us about the creative freedom of writing your villain? He is truly terrible. And I feel like he was probably fun to write.

Irene Helenowski  He was fun to write. Just began writing him and then thought that he would be an interesting character to develop. And a good character to write when I had to vent; maybe that is why he is terrible.

Kelli Landon How do you get your ideas? Are they taken from real life incidents?

Irene Helenowski
  I definitely got some ideas from real life experiences.

Lauren Dootson I secretly love villains When did you start writing your first book and how long did it take you to finish? Did you know how the series would end before you started, or did you just let the characters do the work for you?

Irene Helenowski The entire trilogy took about two years – I did not know how it would end the middle of the second book and the I just came up with some stories to fill it up.

Lauren Dootson Who is your favorite scientist? You can only choose ONE.

Irene Helenowski Maria Sklodowska-Curie being the first woman and first person winning two Nobel prizes and being Polish, of course :)

Margaux Sky It's easy to choose others that influence us and name those important qualities about
another that inspire us, but it is equally important to be self-influenced. What about yourself influences your ambition to write?

Irene Helenowski I definitely think that working in a scientific field is what led me to start writing science fiction.

Julieanne Lynch Is there anything about writing and the publishing world that scares you? What advice would you offer other aspiring novelists?

Irene Helenowski I wonder how my books will be received and if they will ever catch on. But I would still tell aspiring novelists to go for it and write from their hearts.

Paul What do you look forward to in your life, Irene?

Irene Helenowski Well, I hope my family and friends are happy and healthy. Sometimes, I still wish I could have my own family. And maybe my trilogy being a success would be nice. But we'll see what happens :)

Gerry When you have a concept for a story and you think about various
parts of it, do you think of it in terms of written words, as in a manuscript? Or do you think of it more like real life, or perhaps as a screenplay?

Irene Helenowski I always visualize my scenes as if they were movies, even down to the music, including camera angles, panoramic segues, etc. I definitely think about how it would play out live and even what actors would play the characters. It does help with the writing process, but sometimes I get carried away too so I have to stop

Erika Dr. Helenowski, in your trilogy, your characters are physically able to enter the Multiverser and assume various lives. Do you believe that human beings have astral bodies? Do you believe in astral travel? Do you believe that people here on earth, can separate from their physical bodies and travel into other dimensions?
Irene Helenowski  I don't know enough about astral traveling to answer that question but I think anything could be possible.
Erika do you have any personal experience in traveling to other dimensions. Do you think that the dream state could possibly be occurring in another dimension and that those we dream of are actually  there with us?
Irene Helenowski No, I haven't traveled, but sometimes I do have dreams that seem as if they are real in another dimension.
Erika how would you respond to people who have had mystical experiences that have claimed that they have had actual visits from spirits, saints, or living people? Do you believe that as human beings we can communicate with the dead from other dimensions? Do you believe that upon the death of the physical body, that our consciousness exists in another dimension?
Irene Helenowski I do not know much about traveling but I believe anything is possible, including communications between dimensions, even between loved ones no longer with us in this one.

EXCERPT For Order of the Dimensions!
“My cell phone is not working either.”

Several men with flashlights appeared and the

audience became relieved, assuming them to be

part of security. The lights went back on, revealing

figures in black now all over the aisles. They began

dragging individuals into the aisle and shouting. A

few of the men signaled to the ceiling, leading to

ropes dropping down and several more black-
dressed men sliding down the ropes to the floor of

the hall and then to the stage. The room once

again darkened as beating and screaming could be

heard everywhere.

“What the ...” he glanced at the fuel gage, seeing

that the plane was running dangerously low. How

could that be the case? They had just refueled in


Another large flash of light engulfed the sky. When

the men looked back, they noticed several military

jets behind them. Randy began trembling as he

tried to contact the planes, but received no answer.

They heard other communications.

“Permission to shoot down target.”

“Permission granted.”

“What the hell, man? What’s going on? Why are

they targeting us?”

“Dave, I know this sounds crazy but they’re not

who you think they are.” Randy pushed down on

the yoke, causing the plane to descend.

Mother and daughter moved in for a closer look,

Jane carefully opening it to find four pearl swans

circling as the prelude to Swan Lake began to play.

“Wow! It’s so pretty, isn’t it?” she said to Amy.

“Yes, it is. Reminds me of the one I gave my

daughter when she was a little girl.”

Her mouth went dry, hearing the thundering voice.

She looked up to see him staring at her with the

fiercest eyes she had ever seen.

“I certainly miss her. It’s always a tragedy to lose a

precious little girl.”

“I told you! A mere constable is no match for me,

remember?” He clenched his teeth, holding her so

hard that she could barely breathe. ”So what shall

you do now? Hmm? Scream? I can silence you.

Reach for your cell phone? I have hidden it. Reach

for the hotel phone? I disconnected it.”

“R­r­r­andy will be back with the kids shortly and


“And what?” Anton stood back, flexing his arms,

grown larger through his recent lifting sessions.

“Are you telling me that you actually want your

children to see their father pulverized?”

EXCERPT for Revised Orders

“Okay, the parameters are all set.” Amber began the

simulation, just about to open the Multiverser, when the

door flung open itself, knocking her out. Jane could not

believe her eyes.

“Anton? What ... what are you doing here?”

Anton only glared at her. He had become freed from the

black dimension as Albert was able to connect to the

Philadelphia realm through the connection that Amber

created in her algorithm.


Her eyelids became heavy from the cold, wet

handkerchief that Roger placed over her mouth.

“Randy!” He looked up to see her lean towards him,

struggling to free herself, her face red, glistening from

the sweat. Before he could move, an explosion of lights

encompassed the room.

“Ah, so this is Valentin’s new driving student!” He took

off his jacket, revealing his bulging arms. The thin 108

young man trembled as he saw them flex larger with

each step. “I do not take kindly to those who almost run

over the mother of my child. You are just fortunate that

my child was not there either.” He cut the ropes with his

knife before placing it onto his neck. “Very fortunate.” He

grabbed his collar, lifting him up, banging his head

against the wall. “And yet you must understand that I still

need to send him a message. A message to never get

near either of them ever again!”

Nina screamed, breaking free of the guard’s hold,

charging at her tormentor. He knocked her down with

one punch, redrawing his gun. “See what you made me

do! You made me hit a woman! Not that I should call an

abomination like you a woman!” He spat on her and

kicked her in the ribs. Seeing his hand reach for her, she

rolled away, stopping when she hit the black device.

Struggling up, she turned its knob, entering the box

before either man could grab her again. Locking herself

inside, she panted as the humming grew louder.

“No need, love. I can just take it now.” Tina turned

around as she saw a large hand attempt to take the


“Anton, what ... what are you doing here? Where are 241

Maggie and the girls?”

“Maggie and the girls?”

She inched back, falling on the first step as the light

flashed across the painting of Venus above, her eyes

closing as her head hit the stairs.

A young woman from the front desk rushed towards her,

only to step aside as Anton extended his arm. “She will

be fine. You may call my car now, Claudia.”

“Of course, Mr. Zelov.”

EXCERPT for Final Orders
“No! No! Why, mommy, why?”

“I don’t know why, my dear.”

“But why doesn’t Mommy want me anymore?” Amy held

on to his neck, her tears wetting his collar.

“I don’t know, love, but I want you. I shall always be your

father, remember?”

“If you just sign these papers, Mr. President, the

adoptions will be final.” Lena placed the pile beside him.

“No! No! That monster is not their father! That monster is

not their father!”

“Shut up! You’ve had enough chances! “ He pulled her

back, pushing her against the wall, pinning his gun

against her neck. “And yet I have orders not to kill you.”

He sneered. “The foolish President loves you yet. That

is why we will retrieve you from the null space once

you’ve learned your lesson. Let’s see how you wise up

by then.”

“Before you leave, your sample.”

“Of course.” Pawel spit into the receptacle. All guards

now had to be genetically verified through saliva

samples before they left the building for added security


“Thank you.”

He began leaving before a reading could be made.

“Excuse me, your sample was not verified. You must

return and give another one.”

Pawel ignored him.

“Excuse me, you must come back!”

He picked up his pace.

“Stop him!”

He dodged the gate before they could close it, making

his way through the park. He jumped the construction

barriers and crossed Mesa Vista Road, almost making it

to the alley when the Lincoln hit. He tried to stand on the

broken knee but fell again as the door opened.

“Pawel! Where are you going now, my boy?” Anton took

the baton handed to him, swinging it as he came closer.

“So you thought you could outrun me forever, eh?”

“I’ll take the risk.” Anton grabbed Richard’s neck and

threw him against the window. Standing up, he knocked

down the approaching agent with the barrel of his gun.

He swung at another, driving his head onto the rail of the

seat across the aisle. He turned around, hearing a gun

shot after taking down a fourth man.

“You’re welcome.” Roger lowered his pistol.

“Seventeen, you say? And still so skinny? Why, when I

was seventeen I was already an ox and killed five grown


The boy scrunched his face, closing his eyes.

“And you’re crying? My young son doesn’t even cry

anymore. Imagine that. I have these little girls ruder than

my daughters and now I’m with a man meeker than my

five­year­old boy.” He backed away, motioning the lad to

a brawl. “Never mind. I shall take it upon myself to show

you how to be a man. Now, come on.”

He sat still, shaking his head.

“Come on. Don’t you want to be a man? Don’t you want

to be like me? And that is why you answered the posts

of those girls you fancied?”

“Please ... no ... I’m sorry.”

“Come on, I said!” Anton charged at the boy, grabbing

the back of the chair, tilting it back as he came closer to

his face. “Come on, Mr. President. I would like to know

how exactly you came into power. Know exactly what it

takes.” He held his fist to Niles’ chin.

“He is at the event now and about to reach her!” Ivan ran

in, leading Anton to turn his way.

“Very well. If you will, please tend to the President here

and his face.
