Debra Sylver is a professional by day, and a writer of all things fantasy by night (1) when her family lets her, (2) when she's not too tired, and (3) she's not too tired. Her happy place is the beach, and she loves the sun far too much to ever become a vampire. Seriously.
She is the author of the Caitlin Alexander Guardian series. In Your Dreams (Book 1 in the series), is out now. Book 2, A Dream of a Deal, will be out in summer 2014.
Debra lives in Ontario, Canada.
How do you discover the ebooks you read?
That one's tough to answer. Sometimes by word of mouth, sometimes by checking out new releases, sometimes on Twitter, sometimes by doing specific searches in categories, and sometimes just by luck. I love to wander around in bookstores, too. Stephen King says "If you don't have time to read, you don't have the tools to write." I'm a strong believer in that.
What inspires you to get out of bed each day?
Umm, the voice of my son saying 'Mommy?" as he pulls up my eyelid. Not sure I would call it inspiration, at least not that early in the morning.
Caitlin is a Guardian, part of a group that protects the Treaty in an alternate reality. There is still much she doesn't understand about this reality and her role in it, and her attraction to the Guardian leader, Jaeden, confuses things. While battling warlocks and traitors, helping the faeries and searching for her birth mother, she makes shocking discoveries about her past and her family.
Caitlin's back in Otherwhere. Her relationship with Jaeden is as stormy as ever, but when Caitlin makes a deal with the Faery Queen to free a young Guardian, she wonders if she'll ever see the Guardian leader again. A prisoner of the faeries, and pursued by the Prince himself, Caitlin must use her wits and rely on her lioness if she hopes to escape Faerie and return unscathed.
