A Fan of Dragons

Cheryl Rush Cowperthwait Author Interview

The Spires of Dasny: 3 finds a new and unexpected enemy threatening the alliance. What inspired the conflict driving book three in your series?

The antagonist, Belinda, has shone her dislike of Seyra throughout the books and given the right opportunity, has the ability to get rid of her competition, even if the competition is only in Belinda’s mind.

I enjoyed the characters in this story. What aspect of character development do you find the most satisfying as a writer?

I like to make the characters distinct, complete with their own and varied personalities. When their emotions begin to show it gives the reader a fuller value of the character.

Are you a fan of the sword and sorcery genre? What books do you think most influenced your work?

I’m mostly a fan of dragons, and along with them, sword and sorcery often comes into play. Believe it or not, I can’t say any particular dragon books influenced my writing. The book that stands out in my mind because I was completely immersed in it was The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel. I couldn’t get the books of this series quick enough. She had a wonderful way of writing a prehistoric earth and the characters leapt from the pages. The greatest compliment I have ever received is when a reader compared my writing to hers in my Legend of the Dragon Child series.

What can readers expect in book four of The Spires of Dasny series?

Book 4 will give the reader a deeper understanding of what really drives the antagonist to behave the way she does. It will come with a huge twist in the story which, I hope, will have the readers gobbling up the pages. I expect this book will give us a new hero to root for, and clutch at our hearts over what occurs.
