Interview with the AuthorQ - So, what makes The Chronicles of Hawthorn series special?
A - It's actually a mix of things. When I chose to write these books, I wanted to create a diverse story that reminded me of the kind of fantasy, magic, and advenure books I like to read. My top picks are usually epic fantasy novels, any of the witch and wizard best sellers, and, of course, books featuring magic, spells, and potions with a dash of humor. Basically, anything with a fantasy genre flavor and a fast-paced style gets my click.
The Chronicles of Hawthorn books are a great mix of these genres. You'll find the series focuses on the magic and adventure / young adult fantasy genre overall, with a pinch of historical fiction thrown in for good measure, and an adventurous take on magic and friendships to keep things interesting!
