I’m interviewing Judyann McCole today, the author of fantasy novel “Adela Arthur and The Creator’s Clock”. Thank you for answering my questions, Judyann!
1) Please tell us about yourself.
That’s the hardest question for me I’m a 20year old native from Montreal, Canada. I’m in love with color teal and on the weekends I like to jump out of planes. (skydiving). I started writing stories when I was young and never really stopped.
2) Tell us about your book in five sentences or less.
Behind mirror there is a world were myth is reality and someone is trying to rule over it. On the morning of Adela Arthur’s 16th birthday she knew something was wrong. She was right, and because of who she is and the power she has, the darkness will not stop until he takes her light. She has only one choice; go to Cielieu and learn to save herself.
A small girl I baby sat for who wanted to go on an adventure like the “boys”.
4) How many hours per week do you spend writing?
Right now? Not nearly enough as I want to. So about 6 or 7 hours. I hope to go back to writing until 4 am every day soon though.
5) If you could meet three authors, which authors would you choose?
Do they have to be alive?
I would love to have met Mark Twain, Dr. Seuss and Shel Silverstein
I work at a small books-a-millions in my home town. So I spend my day putting book on shelves. I love it, book people are generally nice people. I can’t wait for the day I see my book on a shelf.
Adela Arthur and The Creator’s Clock
Author: Judyann McCole
To Who Ever This May Concern;
I wish I could tell you the contents of this book were purely fictional. That I, Adela Arthur, was just a normal sixteen year old from Portland and that dragons, giants, elves and mermaids were just myths. I wish these were legends shared from crazy old grandparents to crazy old grandparents around campfires. After all, that is what I used to believe.
I never would have thought they lived on the other side of our mirrors in a world called Cielieu. But they do…
I never would have thought there were humans, better known as Volsin that lived among them with the ability to create light from a single thought. But there are…
I never would have thought I was one of them… But I am…
I am the last Arthur and I was brought to the human world after a Volsin, filled with greed, began to strip the light from our kind.
The human world was supposed to be a safe haven… but he’s found us and the only way to stop him is to go back to Cielieu and begin training as a student in the Elpida Castle of Light.
Like I said I wish the contents of this book were purely fictional and not my life…
