When paranormal expert Robyn Wise is offered an outrageous sum of money to cure a boy who is turning into a dead tree, she's very sceptical. A politician ready to pay that much to make his son stop growing branches instead of hair? Come on! She's more likely to be abducted by aliens. This is a trap. Or much worse. And, of course, it's much worse.
The child is turning into a dark portal, created by a powerful entity determined to absorb Fairyland's power. This means that not only queen Titania and her court are in danger, but the very balance of the magic fluxes.
Robyn'd rather stick a pencil in her own eye but. to learn how to destroy the portal, she has to sneak into the Wizardry Council, a place full of wizards who are hiding something—though it’s certainly not their dislike of her.
There, she discovers a terrible secret that could help to overthrow Fairyland's enemies for good, but puts her in the midst of an ancient and deadly war, and not as a bystander, but as the main target.
Today I am pleased to welcome Louisa Klein to the blog!
Hi Louisa! Can you describe your book in three words?
Romantic, action-packed urban fantasy… OMG! That’s 5 words! I’m doomed…
Yes! It is in fact a 4 book series I have in mind: the next book will be called ‘Supernatural Fog’. I have already started it and I am very excited about the story!
Was there anything in particular that inspired you to write Supernatural
Well, I watched this Discovery Channel documentary about a man in Thailand, I think. He had a horrid and unique skin disease that made him look like he was turning into a tree. The same night I dreamt of a child turning into a tree, but said tree was in fact a dark portal… Supernatural Freak was born!:)
Where is your favourite place to write? To read?
To write: any British café where they aren’t playing any music and there are no screaming children around.
To read: my bed, possibly when a couple of my cats are sleeping on it!:)
What were your three favourite books growing up?
Wow, it’s difficult to pick up only 3! Well, definitely the ‘Neverending Story’ by Michael Ende: the first book I read in German, when I was 8. Then Alice in Wonderland. I ADORED Oscar Wilde’s fairy tales and fell in love with ‘The Lord of the Rings’ which I read in 3 weeks, when I was ten and was stuck in bed with chicken pox. And of course these are 4 books and not 3… Please forgive me….
Have you always wanted to be an author? If not, what was your childhood
To be a super-hero with a secret identity!
If you could meet any sort of paranormal creature, what would it be?
I would love to meet the Spirit of the Cat, who is ‘squatting’ Robyn’s body in Supernatural Freak (Robyn is my MC). He has golden fur, silvery eyes and is a concentrate of all cats living on Earth! Just the perfect choice for a crazy cat lady like me, LOL!
What's your favourite colour?
Do you have a favourite drink to get from a coffee shop?
Latte, latte and again, LATTE!!!!!!
Thank you so much for stopping by!
