Passage of Time finds Elara struggling with letting go of her past while fighting a dictator that will destroy the planet. What inspired the setup to this thrilling novel?
Life inspired this novel. I want my readers to experience challenging situations through my characters eyes, and my hope is that they come away with tools on how to cope with life’s hardships. I want my readers to get more than just a great escape from reality.
Elara continues to be an engaging character. What were some obstacles you felt were important to her character development in this book?
Elara’s growth is something I wanted the reader to witness. She needed to experience “real life” challenges, and she needed to hit rock bottom to grow into a powerful young woman. Sometimes we feel as though we are stumbling through life, when in reality we are constantly evolving. The obstacles she faces in Passage of Time were essential to her growth.
The writing in this book was exceptional. What were some goals you set for yourself as a writer before writing this book?
My goal was to publish a book with zero regrets. Each book you publish should be better than your last. I wanted to challenge myself with Passage of Time by approaching topics I once feared. Domestic violence, sexual abuse, suicide, and war are tough to explore. This involved intense research and deep breaths. A plethora of emotions surfaced while writing this book because I wanted my readers to explore various reactions between characters. I wanted them to explore Elara’s mind. Passage of Time is the largest book in my series, and it took the longest to publish because I refused to rush the process. I spent countless hours doing revisions and edits. When I wasn’t writing I was reading. Reading is the most valuable tool for improving your craft.
Where do you see the Seeker of Time series going in the future?
I have BIG plans for the Seeker of Time series. I can’t give away all of my secrets but I will say this: books 4-6 are scheduled for publication.
Abandoned and betrayed, Elara struggles to let go of the man she loves while her fearless mentor encourages her to stand against the evil dictator who rules her home planet. To succeed, she must rise above the darkness and trust the voice near her heart.
The twins experience a setback after a deadly standoff with the Inner Circle. An act of love transforms Elara’s destiny, and an act of hate pushes Cyrus to his breaking point.
Zenith makes a bold move that disrupts the lives of everyone on Aroonyx. Samson gathers the citizens to prepare for war. An alliance is formed, and a traitor seeks revenge.
A tragic event in the West Village sends Elara tumbling further into the darkness, leaving her to face the masked dealer alone. Outnumbered and out of luck, the twins must rally the recruits to end Zenith’s reign.
As the epic battle approaches, the hands of time pause during a life-changing event, and a visitor from the past alters the future.
Passage of Time is the third installment in the award-winning Seeker of Time series. Meaningful lessons challenge the reader, sending their hearts on an emotional marathon that leaves them sprinting toward the finish line.
