Can you tell our followers a little bit about what the MORTAL ENCHANTMENT series?
MORTAL ENCHANTMENT is a YA paranormal romance series featuring elementals. They live primarily in Avalon, but also interact in the mortal world. My series focuses around Kalin and Rowan. Kalin is the half elemental, half mortal daughter of the air court king. Rowan is the prince who walked away from the fire court crown. THE SHADOW PRINCE was written in his POV, while MORTAL ENCHANTMENT was written from Kalin's.
Which of your characters did you have the most fun exploring/getting to know and why?
Rowan has been a lot of fun because he's such a complicated character. He's changed so much since the beginning of THE SHADOW PRINCE. His journey hasn't been an easy one. I look forward to seeing where he goes from here.
What character trait do you admire most in Kalin?
I like her toughness. She's really thrown into a challenging situation in MORTAL ENCHANTMENT. I like that she doesn't wait to be rescued. Instead, she tries to resolve the issues in front of her. I also like her snarky attitude.
Which character would your former teenage self have been friends with?
I really love Marcus. He's so loyal and protective of his friends. There's a sweetness about him I think you'll see explored further in FRAGILE REIGN (MORTAL ENCHANTMENT, #2). I really adore his friendship with Rowan.
We first met Rowan in THE SHADOW PRINCE. Has he changed in any way from the prequel to now? If so, how?
Yes, he has definitely evolved. He lost so much in THE SHADOW PRINCE. He's matured because of it, but also gotten a bit darker in MORTAL ENCHANTMENT. On the outside, he's developed his skills with weapons. When you add that in with his fire magic, I would say he's gotten pretty dangerous.
If you could choose one of your favorite fictional characters to include in your series, who would you choose and why?
I think Ash from Julie Kagawa's IRON FEY series would fit in nicely. Ash and Rowan come from difficult family situations, are both warriors, and tend to have a weakness for half mortal/half magical girls. ;-)
Sixteen-year-old Rowan has spent most of his life living among the mortals—learning to control the element of fire, impatiently awaiting the day his vengeful mother, Queen Prisma, will abdicate her throne. When he finally returns to Avalon for his coronation, his mother insists he must first prove his loyalty to the court by completing a secret mission:
Kill Kalin, the half-human, half-elemental daughter of the air court king.
Willing to do anything to remove his mother from power, he agrees to sacrifice the halfling. He returns to the mortal world with his best friend, Marcus, determined to kill the princess. But as he devises a plan, he starts to question whether or not he's capable of completing such a heinous task. And what price he will pay if he refuses?
