Kathy Fischer-Brown

Author Kathy Fischer-Brownabout this book: While I never attempted to write one before, I am a big fan of the fantasy genre. I counted on my experience "recreating worlds" in historical fiction to guide me through the "world building," and I will add that it was more fun than I ever imagined.

Starting out, I wanted to avoid the common genre archetypes found in a lot of fantasy fiction these days (elves, orcs, dwarves, and "dark lords," to name but a few). So I drew on my knowledge — and lots of research — of actual peoples and cultures and endowed them with other qualities. In creating the characters that populate the book, along with their traditions and beliefs, I combined elements of our world and its historical past with those from my imagination. The result is a fantasy adventure for ages young adult and up.

As with every author, the primary goal in writing a book is to create an entertaining story about likeable (and unlikeable) people dealing with adversity, love and hate, people the reader wants to cheer on — or boo and hiss at — people who face physical and emotional challenges. A story about the human condition in an imaginary world.
