I’m thrilled to have my friend and fellow author Charlene A. Wilson featured this week. She’s here to chat about her newest story Aumelan ~ Blessed of the Gods, a romantic Sci-Fi/Fantasy (not erotic) and her story-stars, Chad, Salana and Dae: )
Charlene, so glad you’re here and can’t wait to hear all about your new story: ) So, without further delay, here’s a bit more about Charlene and then on to the interview…
Charlene A. Wilson is an author of tales that take you to other dimensions. She weaves magic, lasting love, and intrigue to immerse you into the lives of her characters.
She began writing in her early teens when her vivid dreams stayed with her long after she had them. The characters and worlds were so amazing she brought them to life through her books.
Charlene resides in a small community in Arkansas, USA, with her two beautiful daughters, husband, a cuddly Pekingese, and a very chatty cockatiel named Todder.
Please tell us how the idea came to you for Aumelan ~ Blessed of the Gods. Please include all the fun details.
The core of Aumelan is at least 35 years old. Yes, you got that right… 35. As with some of my other stories, Aumelan was presented to me in a dream. Snippets of these dreams are littered throughout the book! I’ve known Chad, Salana and Dae practically my whole life, and I’m thrilled to see them alive now and experiencing all they deserve with others to share in their antics.
What drives, motivates, and/or inspires Chad?
Chad is a dreamer, an idealist who wants to make a change in his world but doesn’t always go about it the best way. But this time Fate is on Chad’s side, he knows it.
What’s Salana’s job? What does she do for a living?
Salana is a Daughter of the Sun Nation, their equivalent of royalty.
Give us some insight into Salana. What’s a bit of her back story?
Salana’s parents’ marriage was arranged to bring peace between two nations. It didn’t achieve all they had hoped, as the Sun Nation still doesn’t treat her mother very kindly. So, Salana’s parents are gone much of the time, visiting the outlying territories and offering support for causes. Salana is essentially raised by her nanny, Nina, and over protective master of Security, Khort. While she loves them dearly, she longs for the friendships she knows others have while attending Sun City University. By chance, she meets Chad there.
Tell us what Chad first means to Salana?
Chad is a shock to Salana when they first meet. He called her by her first name and that’s completely unacceptable. But she can’t get him out of her mind.
Who is Salana to Chad? Can you give us a bit about the first time they meet each other?
As far as Chad is concerned, Fate place Salana in that class room at the time he happened to come to meet the professor. She knows how the Sun Nation works, and she’ll know where to find answers and solutions to his people’s need to take energy from a host to survive. If he can solve that, they could set the slaves used as hosts free!
What are you working on now?
I’m working on book three of my Cornerstone Deep series, Destiny. I hope to have it out in May.
What tip or advice would you give to an aspiring author?
“Believe in the magic that’s in you, its potential, what it can achieve. But most of all, believe in yourself and create a world where reams become reality.”
