Welcome to my blog. This is a Medieval Fantasy. Please tell us about your novel, The Chancellor from Connier.
The princess of Kaloma is distraught, if the chancellor doesn't return to Connier it will mean war, and that is a price she is unwilling to pay. Two weeks before Sestina planned to marry Ottin, he changed his mind. He begged her to wait for him, just a few years, until he could make a name for himself in the court of Connier. She sent him away and never looked back, becoming the lady in waiting to the princess of Kaloma. Then one day he reappears as the chancellor of Connier and promises to stay forever, even though she refuses him. Now war darkens the horizon of the two kingdoms.
Where did you get your inspiration for this story?
When I wrote A Golden Princess, Book Three, in A Royal Romance Series, I had Sestina become the princess' lady-in-waiting, but when I did a side story for her, it was to long for the book, so I opted to take it out. It wanted its own light, and now shines beautifully on its own.
Since this is fantasy, did you have to do any research?
Not really, since it was part of the other book the research was already done when I developed this story. I did have to coordinate time lines with the book A Golden Princess, so it keeps true to the story line in that book.
Tell me about one of the main characters and what you love about him or her?
Ottin broke Sestina's heart long ago in exchange for a better future. Now, he has found her again and will stay, even if it means war between their kingdoms. Ottin is an awesome man and though he did hurt her, he never stops loving her. Sestina had hard times in her life, being born without a father and growing up in poverty. Still, she did her best and because of her efforts, she becomes the Princess of Kalama's lady-in-waiting. She has a heart of gold, though it is shattered. Both are so special and so different. I love them both.
