This is the fifth book in my Elf series. It is a stand-alone book as are all the books in this series. I was drawn to write about elfs after I read The Lord of the Rings. What a marvelous piece of art that is. No, I really don’t claim that my books are anything like the masterpiece(s) that Tolkien created. What I do know is that there are many Elf lovers who are starving like me for more clean elfin lore. It is to them I dedicate my work.
A Royal Elf of Abalon came to me as I contemplated if someone could actually be cruel to one of my beautiful, saintly elfs. After the thought made me shudder, I remembered a class I once took in which the presenter said that as authors we needed to be willing to hurt our main characters to the core.
I smelled a challenge, and being the sucker I am for them, I took it.
It wasn’t easy to write about it. Then this cruel and selfish woman who told me her name was Queen Amathis popped into my mind. She kept coming with new ways to astonish me, on how one person can be so heinous. She became a pro at getting rid of her husbands—she had eight, would you have guessed? Then she became and expert in manipulating her chancellors, courtiers, and Royal Captains. When I though I had plenty, she managed to keep everything from the princess, including all the young men in her kingdom. As you can see I had my hands full.
Writing this tale of love, conspiracy, betrayal, and death was a beautiful and painful road to personal growth. I thank you for taking the time to visit me.
