What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I started writing my first novel back when I was doing a Lord of the Rings marathon. I even based some of my characters off Tolkien’s. I imagined the rolling hills of Middle Earth for the Realm of Terrin and the murky swamps of the Dead Marshes for Rolant. The torturous snow peaks of the Misty Mountains could be my Eirwen Mountains, where the entrance to Gorlassar is hidden. And when you enter Gorlassar and fly to the capital emryn city called Mared, I imagined the majestic music from when the Fellowship entered the great hall in the Mines of Moria.
But scenes and characters aside, I think that is where the similarities stop. My writing is nothing like Tolkien’s.
I would have to say music is what carried the feeling in my book. I mentioned the music from the mines of Moria scene. I did listen to the LOTR’s sound track quite a bit in the early phases of my free writing. But I took any music that uplifted or motivated me, from Evanescence’s Fallen CD to the Piano Guys. I think Twilight’s various sound tracks for all of their movies were a major inspiration for me. Evenstar (LOTR) was my inspiration for the final scene before the epilogue in my first novel.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
My initial basis for my emrys were the LOTR elves. Alas, my emrys don’t have pointy ears. I needed immortals with a flowing, graceful form, strong, lean bodies, and creamy, unblemished skin. Tolkien’s elves were a perfect reference.
“I don’t understand. Why do you wish me captive?” Ahnalyn asked.
“If you continue on that path," the half deer, half man said, "truth will be found, but if you wish to continue on through the forest it will stay hidden forever. I can guide you safely if this is your choice.”
Ahnalyn blinked in confusion, knowing time ran short. Surely, even now, Gethen moved closer. Soon torchlight would creep around the trunk of a tree.
“Give me reason!” Ahnalyn urged.
“Your lord knew the truth," Taliesin said. "He whispered it with his last breath. Make your choice! I must go, fair lady!”
Emrys. Emrys was the word Brenin had uttered. Ahnalyn could not guess what it meant.
Time seemed to stop. Ahnalyn’s chest lifted with one breath before time started again, but the moment was long enough for her to make up her mind. Had her mother been wrong? Her escape was to no end. She would go back. Ahnalyn wanted truth, but the price would be more endless riding at Gethen’s mercy.
