Author Carrie James Haynes, pictured above with her adorable dog, kindly took the time to answer some questions I had for her. Usually I'd jump right into some information about the author but she included a blurb, from her book Whispers, and I'm going to showcase that first because it grabbed me.
*BLURB* The legend, they say, is whispered within the winds along the magnificent Preda Mountain Range, the words and deeds never to be forgotten of the Time of the Nuxvenom, a time when the Sordarins crushed the impending threat, the dreaded Asmeodai, and once more Scarladin was safe. The mighty Sordarins, rulers of the sky! No, the Sordarins have slept well over the years secure in their knowledge the Great One watches over them, knowing the legends holds a mighty warrior will emerge if threatened again, born with a destiny only to defend their world. But subtle changes have emerged. Little by little fear beings to resurface that their world, their very existence is once again threaten. They look to the skies anxiously awaiting their warrior; questioning perchance if the Great One has forgotten them. I know this how? For I am the one born to defend their world. I, Kela Calledwdele, was born a Euchoun. I am their warrior.
So starts this epic fantasy, the Whispers of a Legend saga. Kela Calledwdele was born with a destiny, an Euchoun with only one purpose in life, to protect. Torn between two worlds, Kela soon discovers she is the hope of both. Now she must find the courage to face the destiny fate has dictated to her.
