Doesn’t everyone have a shadow?

E. G. Creel Author Interview

Lily follows a Duban girl who is born without a twin, this is considered bad luck by her people. Her father is forced to take extreme actions to hide her secret. What was the inspiration for the setup of your story?

There’s something magical about a shadow. Isn’t there? I remember trying to trick mine when I was little and loved when Peter Pan’s shadow went off on its own. I wanted to know more about it. So, I wrote my own story, and it began with a little girl being born with a shadow.

Lily is born cursed through no fault of her own and must live with a dark shadow. What were some driving ideals behind your character’s development?

What we see as a taboo or a curse, Lily sees as normal. She’s a little girl with a shadow. Doesn’t everyone have a shadow? They do, but not like Lily’s. But are rumors more dangerous than reality?

What were some themes that were important for you to explore in this book?

There’s a crossover for a character from my previous novel, The Immortal. When I began writing Lily, I didn’t know it would happen. But when the time came to introduce a certain character, I was delighted to find the crossover fit perfectly, filling in a question from my previous story. “What happened to Stacey?” Read Lily to find out.

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

I’m writing in Kindle Vella. Gena is the latest serial I’ve completed and it’s also a crossover. I also have several short stories posted under the story The Sunken Duck.
