Sometimes things are lost for a very long time…and then they are found.
Take Gracie for example. She lost everything. Her life, her family, even her name. But after a shaky beginning, she may have found her true calling as one of the most powerful Cathalian warriors in Antecede, the land that bridges light and darkness.
Now her elder and nemesis, Donovan, has finally granted her an opportunity to train a new warrior. But what if that warrior is her great, great, great, great grandson? And he brought along a mysterious friend.
Gracie and her fellow warriors of Antecede discover they aren’t the only ones who have a claim on their new charges. Menacing enemies from the South have taken an interest in them as well.
Come with Gracie, Donovan and their fellow warriors on a perilous quest to protect all that is good and right from the evil that threatens it.
And in the process discover what was lost...
Donovan looked her up and down with an expression that might have been disdain, but more intense and personal. His examination puzzled her, but again being singled out by him wasn’t unusual. He said nothing at all for quite some time. It took all of Gracie’s strength not to fidget under his stare. At last the force that was Donovan burst wide open, and his fire rained down on her head.
“How dare you act without any care for yourself or your brothers and sisters-in-arms and needlessly put yourself in harm’s way? Everything went exactly according to plan before you put yourself within that monster’s reach. Why? Do you realize how close his arrow came to you? And how close he came to breaking your neck? Do you have a death wish? You want to spend eternity on that bow? Join Emmie and Shinto? Is that your desire? You are still the same senseless, selfish woman who stepped onto the pier the day I met you. You have learned nothing.” Donovan closed the gap between them and was now yelling an inch from her face. He grabbed her shoulders and shook her like a rag doll, but Gracie was no longer his whipping girl.
She wrenched herself out of his grasp and slapped him hard across the face. She held nothing back, and the stinging blow left a small but mighty handprint on his cheek. The entire world grew quiet, as if holding its breath, waiting for something dire to happen. Her seven protectors, who had remained close to their mistress during the battle, surrounded her, growling, ready to come to her defense if her elder so much as touched her again.
What would we find under your bed?
My Christmas wrapping paper boxes lol
What was the scariest moment of your life?
Finding out my sister had cancer
Do you listen to music while writing? If so what?
Yes…I love listening to music while I write. I listen to songs I love more than a type of music. I love Pink, John Legend, Madonna, Hans Zimmer movie soundtracks, lots of movie sound tracks, Katy Perry, all the way to Linus and Lucy J
What is something you'd like to accomplish in your writing career next year?
Publish book two in the Chronicles of Antecede series and be well on my way to finishing book three.
How long did it take you to write this book?
Too long lol. I started in 2015 when my sister got ill and then put it away. I “finished” in 2018 but the edits and general “not knowing what I was doing” took me to here and now.
