Ariane Vai


My name is Ariane, I'm 25 years old. I work as a freelance translator and I write for an esoteric magazine. Sometimes I draw, but my true passion is - you guessed it - writing books. I'm an avid gamer - lately mostly League of Legends. In my free time I sometimes also do a little voice acting. And try to learn to sing with very mediocre results ;)

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
It wasn't the first, but it's the first I remember that impacted me so hard. It was called Purpurella. Something about a flower and animals, I couldn't tell you today, but the name is stuck in my head, because I can't forget the feels :) Next was probably Watership Down. It scared me. But in a good way. I was at the edge of my seat the entire time and I can still quote a bunch of those pre-chapter quotes! One of them, from the Auden's poem "The Two", actually inspired an element of my novel.
What do you read for pleasure?
Romance! I prefer the paranormal ones and those full of complicated drama that eventually leads to a happy ending. I'm such a girl sometimes...

It’s a story about love, but it’s not a love story. It’s a story about destiny, but there’s no Chosen One… or one useful prophecy. It’s a story about good and evil, but those, like beauty, are in the eye of the beholder. Symmetry of Sins is the first volume of a mix-genre fantasy book, the New Amazing Nightmare – a novel about generally good people in a generally bad world.
