From the Author
The idea for the Healers of Meligna series came to me while I was at the doctor's office for my annual check-up. An impression imprinted on
my mind, and I realised I wanted to write something controversial, yet still in
the genre of Epic Fantasy. I wanted to build a world full of loveable
characters, and interesting societies, that when forced together, create conflict
and tension based on differences of beliefs, rather than alluding to cliches of good and evil.
I knew I would write this story from a first-person perspective. I'm a very
heady/analytical type of person, and have a keen interest in psychology, so I
like to bring my readers really close to the main character. I want you to feel
my protagonist's highs and lows. In Concealed Power, when Adenine is perplexed,
I want you, my readers, to care as much as she does about finding a resolution.
I want your eyes to be glued to the pages until you've discovered, through her,
the answers to all enigmas.
As I was writing the story I found myself playing games with my readers. When a
book lacks swordfight and fire breathing dragons (although you might find aspects of this in the future books in the series), the author must create intrigue and
mystery like a Sherlock Holmes or Miss Marple novel. The reader should be
guessing ahead, thinking about the future and sorting through the clues to
answer the book's questions.
This series has changed me as a writer. It's helped me discover my strengths
and weaknesses as an author, while constantly challenging my tenacity (I spend
a great deal of time scratching my head over the plot).
While I've written stories before, none of them have seen the light of day, but
this story wanted to be published. It has its own life force that on rare occasion,
has moved me to tears (especially towards the end of the second book that I'm
writing right now). This story wanted to be written and I hope that you get
something from reading it.
