What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
To tell you the truth, it was a terrible heat wave. I couldn’t sleep and woke up one morning with this story burning to be told. No one ever thanks the weather for their inspiration, but it really did play a key part. I had been formulating some ideas for awhile. In examining my own past, I knew there was another layer to be explored. Everyone talks about the “big traumas”, but no one addresses the smaller ones. And they pack a punch. The tiny pebbles we carry around really can hold us back, dampen out spirits, and extinguish our light. I wrote this for me and for you. The inclusion of magic and magical practices was to make it more fun for the reader.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
It started with considering the word “light” and what that means. Visual artists talk at great length about light and how that is achieved in paintings, the relationship between light and dark. In my story and in the protagonists journey “Light” is another character. I felt then the Counsel of Three had to have something to do with the management of light- sunlight, moonlight, and starlight. Each one has a different meaning and purpose. Molly Day came about by the totally random act of scrambling the letters of my own name. After that, I needed to know who this Molly Day person might be. I was off and running.
