Welcome Samantha to Jeny's TattleTales

Let's start with an easy questions: What was the hardest, most unusual, or interesting part of the story to research?

The most interesting would have to be sketching the map of my world I am creating in my books. The picture on what goes where, and making sure that it makes sense geographically.

I totally understand that. I have a fictional world as part of my Heaven & Earth Series and mapping it and make it sound real it wasn't easy. I am actually working now on designing an actual map for it.

What are two (or more) of your all-time favorite books in any genre?

The simple answer I love the Chronicles of Narnia Series and the Game of Thrones series. How the authors created such amazing worlds that you can picture in your mind. It is an amazing fantasy series.

What inspires you? In your life? In your work?

What inspires me is my grandmother how she was someone who believes in me and thought I would be such an amazing storyteller. In my life now who inspires me is the world I read in books knowing I can do that. When it comes to my work it is all the authors who are self-published who know they can do well

If writing is your first passion, what is your second?

My second favorite passion is working with children. That my degree in college is child development. I love helping children prepare for elementary school.

What’s next for you?

What is next for me is to be the best wife, and mom that I can be. Also to be an amazing storyteller. Planning on having 3 books be out this year!

The last question is… What would you most like to say to your readers?

Give self-published writers a chance. Just because we are not published by big publishing houses does not mean we are amazing storytellers.

Prince Liam of Derzeli believes differently in what honor means. King Breen, Liam’s father, and Cullen, Liam’s brother, believe that real greatness is achieved once they slay a dragon.

On one of the nights of the journey, Liam rescued a dragon’s egg. Liam decides to care for it, and it hatches on Liam’s birthday. Tragedy strikes, which leads to Liam having to leave Derzeli, and Liam goes on the run with the help of Ella, the dragon. Ella helps him escape and runs to a barren wasteland, where he saw himself to becoming a hermit for the rest of his life. But due to an event happening with the help of a new friend and a childhood friend, Liam has no choice but to return home. He has to decide to run away from his destiny, or embrace it, the chance of a king
