Author Interview with Alina Sayre

I recently had the pleasure of interviewing Alina Sayre, author of The Iluminator’s Gift. A fantasy novel for 9-14 year olds.

Synopsis of the novel:

Ellie is a twelve-year-old orphan who desperately wants a family. She just doesn’t expect to find one when she joins the crew of The Legend, a flying ship in a secret rescue fleet. On board, she meets a boy with a pet tarantula, a bully with eyes like mirrors, and a librarian who can read eighteen languages. Unexpectedly, Ellie also discovers a powerful gift that only she can wield. But when The Legend is called to a dangerous rescue mission, Ellie risks losing everyone she loves. Will her mysterious gift be enough to save her and her friends from a deadly enemy bent on destroying their world?

Some days I hate good books.

Not because they’re good. No, no. Because they make me want to read them while I’m at work. ::shakes fist:: Curse you George R.R. Martin for having talent! If you haven’t read any of the Game of Thrones books you need to … or is it The Song of Ice and Fire. Look’em up on amazon or something. Great reads.

edit: I’m wrong twice. They are A Song of Ice and Fire novels. At least I was closer on the second.
