The Obvious Secrets

Jenny M. Mason Author Interview

Undying Sway follows a girl who is looking for her family and finds much more than she expected. What was the inspiration for the setup to this thrilling story?

The inspiration was a real life person in history who was said to be an immortal. I also thought it would be interesting to involve the recent phenomenon of DNA collection and write about the obvious secrets that this technology must have revealed.

Kara is an intriguing and well developed character. What were some driving ideals behind her character development?

The ideals behind Kara are those of morality v desire, right v wrong. I thought it would be interesting to have a main character faced with ethical dilemmas – weighing up the good and the bad in a situation. Kara is emotional and at times indecisive and yet she is intelligent and has principles too – like all people she is complex.

The book explores morality and family duty. What were some themes that were important for you to focus on?

Life is not just about hedonism, morality and duty do play a part in life. With this book, I wanted to weigh up personal desire and pursuit of love with duty and morals. Kara is often put in a position where she has to decide between the angel and devil that sit on her shoulders.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

I am currently brainstorming my next book and even considering writing a non-fiction piece. I am one half of the podcast The Wedge with Sara Cream and Sweet Jenny Sauce and I am also currently enjoying songwriting.
