Smashwords Interview

When did you begin writing?
When I was seven years old, I had a sudden inspiration for a story and decided then and there that I was going to write a book and be the world's youngest author! I ran to my room in great excitement, found an old notebook and a pencil, and started in. Well, that first novel was never actually finished, let alone published, but it got me started. After that I can't remember a time that I wasn't working on at least one book.
Tell us about your latest book. Is it part of a series?
Prince of Malorn is the third book in my Annals of Alasia series, but like the others, it can stand on its own. Each book deals with events surrounding the same major political incident: the invasion of the kingdom of Alasia by the neighboring kingdom of Malorn. Prince of Alasia begins on the night of the Invasion and describes what happens to twelve-year-old Prince Jaymin after he is forced to flee for his life. In the Enemy’s Service features a girl as the protagonist and tells the story of those who were not able to escape from the Alasian palace when the enemy invaded. Prince of Malorn begins several months earlier and focuses on the Malornian perspective of the events leading up to the Invasion. In each of the books, main characters from the others make brief appearances and interact with each other at the point where the timeframes and settings overlap.

Smashwords book reviews by Annie Douglass Lima

    I love this story! Courage and determination are major themes, and I admire the main character who personifies them so admirably. There was a twist near the end that I never saw coming. The author presents just enough of a glimpse of the setting and culture to make it clear that there's so much more to them than we can see. I'm hoping for a prequel, or maybe even a whole series. Definitely worth the read!
