Meet The Fontre!

With Cassai in the hands of his deranged brother, Elian is forced to find help in the most unlikely place. Elian strikes an ominous and desperate bargain with the Queen of the Fey. Can Elian bear to face the past he’s fled for so many years; will ensuring Cassai’s freedom cost him his own?

      YABC:  What gave you the inspiration to write this book?

I was inspired to write this trilogy as a ten-year-old girl. The two main characters, Elian and Cassai, were my starting point. I loved the idea of two people who loved each other so much they could feel each other’s pain.

 



YABC:  Who is your favorite character in the book?

Cassai, and Elian … and Hollis … and Devilan. Rats. I guess I love lots of them.

 



YABC:  Which came first, the title or the novel?

The novel. It took me ages to think of the title.
 

 


YABC:  Thinking way back to the beginning, what’s the most important thing you've learned as a writer from then to now?

How to actually write a book. There’s a huge learning curve just from the age of 20 to 30, imagine how vast it is from the age of 10 to 30!

 


 
YABC:  What new release book are you looking most forward to in 2019?

The second in the trilogy, The Fontre,releases Feb. 9th.

 


 
YABC:  What was your favorite book in 2018?

I really enjoyed Black Star Renegades by Michael Moreci

 


 
YABC:  What’s up next for you?

The last book in the trilogy is set to release later 2019

 


 
YABC:  Which character gave you the most trouble when writing your latest book?

Hollis is always giving me trouble, followed by Sophie. They just won’t do as they’re told.

 


 
  YABC:  What would you say is your superpower?

I can write thousands of words in a day, which is good because I have five small children and if I couldn’t write quickly, I would never get books finished.
