    Hiya Angie long time fan!
    Recently I’ve beem re reading the Septimus Heap series (which stands to be my absolute fave book series of all time and I feel always will be)
    But I’ve just noticed in the books that Septimus and Jenna have a pretty close bond I was just wondering if they ever got together

    Thanks so much for taking the time to read and respond!

      Hi Chris,
      I think you are right, I have had the same feeling all the way through writing SandRider and StarChaser. But I need to write it to be sure!
      I have found all the way through writing Septimus that many ideas I get in advance are changed by the characters themselves and I have to allow them to have their way. But The same happened with Jenna and Beetle. I thought they would be lovely together, but Jenna had other ideas. A bit like life really…
      I was constrained by the age grouping (Middle Grade 8-12) for the series and so could not really go into the romantic side of things, however, a more grown-up novel taking place later would fix that problem…
      Thanks so much for your comments, too, and getting the AA started again!

    Are you ever going to make a film of Septimus Heap? I hope so because I’m a major fan!

    • Angie Sage

      It so great you’re a big fan of the books! Warner Brothers do have the film rights but development on the film stopped a while back now. Check out my more detailed answer in FAQs.

    and, also, does Septimus have any love interests?

    • Angie Sage

      Well, as this is a middle grade title I do have to steer clear of too much romance. But there is Rose – although by the TodHunter Moon series they have broken up. I did feel when I was writing the THM trilogy that Septimus and Jenna were becoming close. But I would need to write a book for an older audience, based maybe a few year on from the TodHunter Moon series, to really discover what happens. Maybe it is time I did this!

    I love the Septimus Heap series and have been reading them for years. I have a couple of questions: why did Cerys do a bit of a personality switch in Fyre from what we saw of her in Queste and Syren? Why did Jo-Jo Heap decide to go to the Red City in Starchaser? What happened to Marwick’s brothers? Thank you! This is a lovely series and I love all the sibling relationships

    • Angie Sage

      Thank you so much for your lovely comments. I have so enjoyed writing all the different relationships in Septimus Heap, it is in fact the think I like the best.
      Cerys … well she was a strange bird. The more I got to know her the more prickly she felt. I do find that writing my characters is the same as getting to know people – they are not always what they seem at first glance.
      And Jo-Jo? Well, he is besotted with Marissa and he would go anywhere with her. She offered him a pretty good deal in the Red City and I’m not at all surprised he went. Marwick’s brothers were working in Gothyk Grotto when I last saw them. There wasn’t room in THM to follow their paths. Maybe that is something for later …
