What has been your most memorable experience in writing this novel?
The most memorable experience would be the sheer joy that I would get from just writing the novel. I would type for 3-4 hours without any hesitation or needing a moment to think, the novel just poured out from me to my laptop. I remember not wanting to take any breaks, not answering any calls during that time. It was just me and my thoughts! Being able to write from differing points of view gave me an insight into how creative my imagination is.
What was your inspiration for this story?
I love romantic stories that end well, but I usually found that I was unhappy with certain character traits or the way the story flowed, quite often I would find myself thinking ‘why is she doing that?’ and becoming frustrated. Through complaining about this to my husband he suggested I write my own. So I did whilst on maternity leave looking after my twin daughters, who were 9 months old at the time. My husband and my daughters are my inspiration. I combined the names of my daughters Daanya and Sofia to create the names of Danfians and Sofayans.
What are your current writing projects?
I’m currently working on the second part of this novel, Julian: The Danfians Prophecy. You will need to read The Danfians Prophecy to understand what Julian will be about. There are further revelations of the prophecy and how everyone has a role to play to defeat the enemy. It will be just as adventurous, romantic and fast paced as The Danfians Prophecy is.
