For More Information
Q: Thank you so much for this interview, Amelia! Can you tell us where you are from?
Canterbury, Kent, UK.
Q: How did you come up with your title?
One of the key story lines centers around a boy with an extraordinary heritage. He is the son of Tagan Halsan hence Tagan’s Child.
Q: They say you can judge a book by its cover. Can you tell us a little about your cover and who designed it?
I designed the cover. As soon as I started to write the book I had a very clear idea of what I wanted it to look like. Whilst the book is essentially a romantic suspense it does have a sci-fi twist and I think the cover sums this up nicely without giving too much away.
Q: Can you tell us something about your book that would make me run out and buy it?
In the UK it has received over 100 reviews and 86 of them are 5* ;)
Q: Are there any messages in this book that you want the reader to know about?
Live for the day, don’t dwell on the past or future.
Q: What was your most favorite chapter to write and why?
This is so hard, I enjoyed every second of writing it, but if you had to tie me down it would be…chapter 3, when Sophie meets Ahran for the first time.
Q: Why did you feel you had to write this book?
At the time, I couldn’t find anything I wanted to read so I decided to write the kind of book that I enjoy. Once I started, I couldn’t stop.
Q: Now, some fun questions – What deep dark secret would you like to share with us?
I love a blanket, summer or winter!
Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
There are so many beautiful places I would like to visit. The beaches of Thailand would probably be my first stop.
Q: Are you a morning person or a night person?
Neither. I like my sleep too much!
Q: Are there any members in your family who also like to write?
My 10 year old son.
Q: As a child, were you a dreamer?
No, I was a girly swot. I loved school.
Q: Last but not least, the magic genie has granted you one wish. What would that be?
As corny as it sounds it would be world peace. There is far too much war for my liking.
Q: Thank you so much for this interview! Do you have any final words?
Ok, so these aren’t my words but they resonate with me. “The magic is in you. There ain’t no crystal ball.” – Dolly Parton. Wise Dolly…sigh J
