Fiona Skye - The Magpie's Daughter
1) Tell us about your book (s) (or short story)
My book is about a young girl who receives a magical sixteenth birthday present that sends her on an adventure in the Unseelie Autumn Kingdom. She learns about her family, helps save her dad, and meets a new best friend. She also becomes involved in a war between the Seelie and Unseelie courts.
2) Who is your main character? Tell us about them.
My main character is named Aeryn Walker. She's a pretty typical teenager: super smart, into geeky things, independent. She also happens to be half-fae.
3) What is your favorite Fae myth or story?
My favorite Faerie myth is that of Tam Lin, the story of a young man who is saved from the Queen of the Faeries by his true love. Susan Cooper wrote a beautiful version of the story. It's one of my favorite books.
4) The Fae. Helpful magical creatures? Or mischievous tricksters?
I think they're mostly tricksters and just don't care too much about humans and will do whatever they want, regardless of the consequences. The Seelie don't go out of their way to hurt humans like the Unseelie do, but neither do they allow the needs or wants of humans to influence their decisions.
5) What is your Fae elemental? Salamander (Fire) Undine (Water) Brownie (Earth) or Sylph (Air)
About the Author:
Fiona Skye is a fantasy author currently living in the deserts of Southern Arizona. She shares a home with her husband, two kids, three cats, and a Border Collie.
Fiona’s passion for story telling began early in life. She loved playing make-believe and inventing elaborate fantasy worlds to play in. At age twelve, she wrote her first short story, which was based on a song by a 1980s hair band. After giving it to her English teacher for editing and rewrites, she learned to love the entire writing process. She has dedicated her life since then to story craft, only to be occasionally distracted by the dogged pursuit of the perfect plate of cheese enchiladas.
