The world is changing.
For thousands of years, witch song has controlled everything from the winds to the shifting of the seasons. But not anymore. All the Witches are gone, taken captive by the dark Witch, Espen.

As the last echoes of witch song fade, Espen grows stronger as winter and summer come within the space of a day. Now she’s coming for the one she missed—a shy, untrained girl of fifteen named Brusenna. Somehow, Brusenna has to succeed where every other Witch has failed. Find Espen. Fight her. Defeat her. Or there won’t be anything left to save.Amber Argyle's debut, Witch Song, is a classic fantantasy for young adults. It will be released Sept 1st 2011.

How has growing up in the Rocky Mountains influenced your setting for Witch Song?

My three brothers and I mostly grew up on a cattle ranch miles from the nearest neighbor.
In front of our two bedroom house were endless fields of alfalfa and grass hay (which I had
to move sprinkler pipe for every summer morning-bleck). Behind my house were the massive Crawford Mountains.

I spent hours playing in the barns, fields, and mountains. In the summer, we rode horses,
caught minnows with ice cream buckets, road our bikes, and had cattail fights with my brother.
In the winter, we sledded down a steep crater we called “The Pit”.
Sometimes, I feel like I grew up in a different time and place than the world around me.
Like I had more in common with people from the 1920s than from the 1980s. I guess I just see
things differently. Surrounded by animals and nature, I saw magic everywhere. The music of
rustling trees, the power of a thunderstorm, the quiet elegance of a snow laden landscape. I saw
it. I lived it.

Perhaps if I grew up in a crumbling city, I’d write dystopian. Or if I grew up in a suburb,
I’d write urban fantasy. But I didn’t. I grew up on a cattle ranch. And I write high fantasy about
magical people who are pitted against an evil that will destroy their world.
