AUTHOR INTERVIEW: Michele Barrow-Belisle

Up today is a brief chat with author Michele Barrow-Belisle, who's here to talk a little bit about her book FREEZE, from the FAIRIE SONG TRILOGY series.

Here's a little bit about the book:

In a twisted game of following impossible clues to ceaseless dead ends, The Shadow Faerie Zanthiel is forced to search for the girl he'd let go.

Lorelei may be out of his life, but she's never far from his mind with the prophecy pulling them together. They both feel it, yet they both have reason to fight it. He might not be able to have her, but no force in this world, or any other will stop him from saving her.

Time is running out, and Zanthiel has only a fraction of it left to find her, before those hunting her find either one of them.

That sounds like a great read, no?

A dreamer at heart, Michele Barrow-Belisle has always lived with one foot in this reality and one foot in another, one of her own imagining. So it follows that she would grow up to write about the characters from those enchanting worlds she knows and loves so well. A fan of all things romantic, her young adult novels are populated with scintillating witches, vampires and fey. Her bestselling debut book series Fire and Ice (Faerie Song Trilogy) was optioned for a major motion picture this year. Michele resides in southern Canada with her hubby and son who indulge her never-ending obsession with reading, writing and most importantly... chocolate.

We had a chance to ask Michele our three favourite questions here at Supernatural Central, and here's what she had to say:

SC: Tell me a little bit about your main character of this book.

MBB: It's the story written from the point of view of Zanthiel, the dark shadow faerie who the main character Lorelei is entangled with. He unexpectedly became the fan favourite after the first two books came out and I thought it would be fun to delve into his life to see what makes him so compelling. I love this character and it was the reason I was so eager to write his story. He has fascinated not only me but most of my readers as well. I guess it's because he's got that whole dark-side bad-boy anti-hero thing going on. There's something fascinating and compelling about those characters, so riddled with battle scars worn like badges of honor, behind the fortress surrounding their heart. You want to know what lies behind all of those emotional wounds. This story lets you in behind the wall, behind the scars and into his world. 
SC: No kidding. He sounds fascinating. Do you believe in the paranormal yourself, and if so, do you have an experience you can share with us?

MBB: I have had so many paranormal experiences that I think they're more normal than anything else. I mean, even with this book. I was told on a few different occasions by Psychics that I was meant to do this. It took about three different attempts, the final one being more akin to a hammer on the head than a gentle nudge to finally make me realize they were right. I started writing and I haven't looked back since. It's what fuels my days and it's my favourite creative output. There are times I'm so in the zone, so lost in writing and caught up in the moment, that I have no memory of what I've written when I come out of it. I truly think that at least part of that passion comes from forces in the unseen.

SC: Congrats on that movie option by the way! What titles are you working on now, that you can tell us about?

MMB: Well as I mentioned this series was originally intended as a trilogy. But the secondary characters were begging to have a chance to tell their own story. So there are three novellas coming out before the third book in the trilogy is released. The next in line is MELT, which is told from Venus's point of view. For those who don't know she's not the nicest character in the book-world. I won't say too much so as not to give away any spoilers. And after that her story is BURN, which is Adrius's story. For those who've read FIRE&ICE, the first in the series, they'll remember him as the love interest for the main character Lorelei. Now that the series has been optioned for a motion picture, something we're all extremely excited about, there may even be additional books added to the series. Which is fine by me, since I have no shortage of ideas! 

Thanks so much for stopping by Michele, it's been fun talking to you. Keep us posted on the movie details. Best of luck!
