1) Tell us about your book (s) (or short story)
My book is called Hear Me Cry. It’s a fantasy romance retelling of the Irish legend of the Banshee.
2) Who is your main character? Tell us about them.
My main character is Isla. She’s fae and one of the Fae court warriors. She’s been trained to assassinate humans and to fear them. In her world, they believe that humans are evil and will trap, torture, and kill any Fae they come across. Isla is a strong, feisty character and her encounter with a human called John changes everything she’s been told. Isla must put aside her beliefs and discover the truth for herself. She must break all the rules and use her training to fight against those she once called family.
3) What is your favourite Fae myth or story?
I love the Irish myths and legends, in particular, those about leprechauns.
4) The Fae. Helpful magical creatures? Or mischievous tricksters?
I believe they are helpful magical creatures with some that are evil and mischievous too.
5) What is your Fae elemental? Salamander (Fire) Undine (Water) Brownie (Earth) or Sylph (Air)
I would say Brownie, a fae that works with the earth and harnesses the power of nature to bring about change in a positive way.
