About the book (provided by IRead Book Tours)
Eleanor, a timid orphan, has no clue to her real purpose, but she also has no desire to become a subservient old maid, like the miserable nuns she is forced to with. Eleanor believes Edward, whom she loves, will save her from being forced to take vows. She knows Mother Superior has no intention of letting her leave–her songs are the only thing keeping the grey mist at bay. Her devastation is complete when she discovers Edward is a prince and heir to the throne, but it is the impetus she needs to leave the safety of the abbey and go in search of her long lost father.
She doesn’t get far before discovering her true destiny. With only her instincts to protect her, she must match wits with a powerful being intent on the destruction of her world. If she does not find The Perfect Tear and release its healing power into the land, she will become an accomplice in the destruction of all she loves.
1. What made you write a fantasy about the spiritual survival of the human race?
With the plethora of dystopian novels where girls must learn to fight and use extreme violence to survive, I feel we’re moving towards a tipping point where girls will believe they must use violence when under any kind of threat. Woman and girls have a much stronger weapon. We have intuition, a skill that can be developed to a very high level. These are the kind of stories I would love young girls to embrace.
2. If you could put yourself as a character in your book, who would you be?
Tsera, of course. Who wouldn’t want to create universes? I love the idea of female biased energy running things.
3. What’s the scariest thing that ever happened to you?
In the dead of night, the transponder box on the electricity pole out side the bedroom window blew up. It was terrifying. My partner and I both catapulted out of bed and out of the bedroom because we thought we were under attack.
4. What advice would you give budding writers?
Hire the very best editor you can and use your test to speech for proofing. Proofing takes at least three full read-throughs using this method. The human eye misses so much.
5. What is your next project?
We find these characters nine months later and things have changed in every dimension. The stakes are extremely high once again.
