What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Books play an important role in not only my life, but also in our society. I've wanted to be a writer since I started reading, but actually publishing my book has been a long time coming. This book specifically was inspired by my love of all things magical. The world can be too dark of a place at times and I often hope for magic to brighten my day. So, this book is here to brighten the days of others as well.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
The story actually evolved from the main character, because I thought of her first. She is a strong and independent heroine who takes the entire world onto her shoulders, making her a mixture of all of the powerful women in my own life. The other main characters were created to enhance her, but they've grown into their own beings as well over the process of writing. Each one of them holds a special place in my heart.
STANDING DRENCHED IN THE RAIN OF A FOREIGN COUNTRY AFTER over twenty hours of travel definitely made Thea Gilbert’s list of top-ten-worst days. She admitted it probably didn’t rank as high as her parents’ dying in a car accident or finding out she was adopted, but it definitely outranked breaking up with her high school sweetheart, Marcus, after his heartfelt proposal. Apparently, being eighteen and an orphan meant she needed a husband to take care of her. That was one reason she’d left Colorado and fled to Ireland, despite the guilty voice in her head patronizing her and slating her decisions.
“Are you here to see the Faeries too?” a little boy asked from beside her, startling Thea out of her thoughts. He stared at the unextraordinary green hillside with eager eyes.
Sure, Ireland was beautiful, but once she’d seen one rolling green plain, hadn’t she seen them all?
Thea glanced at the boy briefly. He stood with his hands tucked into his red hoodie next to an elderly woman who wore a matching red raincoat. “Granny says they only come out at dusk.”
“Don’t bother the poor girl,” his grandmother scolded, tugging the little boy away from the hill. “Let’s get inside before you catch your death.”
Before Thea could formulate a response they pulled their hoods tight over their heads and hurried down the path to the village, leaving her alone in the rain. She knew this weather was normal in these parts, but by the ominous clouds forming over‐ head and the shortage of people willing to stand outside, she wondered if this would sooner grow from a sprinkle into a storm.
Regardless, she forced her feet toward the Hill of Knock‐ ainey, which was the entire reason she’d chosen Ireland as her destination to begin with. According to her adoption file, this was where her biological parents had abandoned her, wrapped in a purple silk blanket with no hint of who they were. She’d let herself sink into an aching numbness since her parents’ deaths, but it never extinguished the loneliness that constantly plagued her. It resurfaced in the form of a stomachache, twisting her insides until she felt as if she might puke, but she swallowed back the bile, inhaling sharply. Just because she was now an orphan didn’t mean she needed to fall apart at the seams.
