Interview & Giveaway: Sarah Daltry

          Sarah Daltry is an extreme introvert who writes a variety of fiction, all character-driven and blending lyrical imagery with philosophical questions about belonging and defining yourself. She lives in New England. 

Favorite reads?
 The Book Thief, The Catcher in the Rye, The Lovely Bones, The Sun Also Rises, Nineteen Minutes.

Inspirations for the book?
         Nothing really - it just came to me one morning

Did you know you wanted to be an author when you were little?
          Yes and no. I always wrote because books were the only place I felt okay, but I didn't know what authors were to be honest. I'm not sure I do now, either, because I'm still more interested in giving readers a place to feel safe and comfortable with characters like themselves than I am about marketing. 

Any Pet Peeves?
          I try not to be negative, but I don't like the way the world is in many ways. 

Chocolate or Peanut Butter?
          Peanut Butter

The weirdest thing you've ever done?
          I have done many weird things, since I can't remember ever being "normal."

Is there a soundtrack to the book/Favorite music?

Do you need anything to write? 

How long do you write on any average day?
          It depends - I go many days when I don't write at all and others when I write for 10 hours. 

Give us the number one reason to read your book.
          It's a blend of philosophy and traditional epic fantasy and the story could really take place in our contemporary world as much as in a magical land. It's about accepting even the darkest parts of yourself as strength.

Author Info:

In a world ravaged by war and oppressive forces of evil, a princess must fight to claim her bloodright and save her people.
When the princess, Alondra, falls for the beautiful, blue eyes of a hooded stranger, it awakens in her a taste for freedom and an escape from her duty.
But her parents have other plans; they have a Kingdom to protect and Alondra must marry to ensure the peace between nations. Only what happens when your parents choose a cold-hearted assassin as your betrothed?
As lies, illusions and long hidden vendettas surface, the princess has to confront a very secret history. One that makes her realize that she not only risks losing her liberty, but also everything she has known and loved.
