An interview with the Author of "The Light Tamer", Devyn Dawson.
Q. The Light Tamer has a touch of mythology in it, why did you decide to write about Fate?
A. I think the story about the three Fates is interesting and not really written about in YA books. People are quick to say ‘fate brought us together’, I wanted people to think about how fate works.
Q. What kind of books do you prefer to read yourself: Adult or Young Adult? What are you currently reading?
A. I really like young adult books. I’m reading "Before I Fall" by Lauren Oliver.
Q. What part is easier for you to write: the first chapter or the last chapter?
A. I tend to rewrite the first chapter over and over to draw the reader in. I have great satisfaction when I finish the book.
Q. Do you write yourself in your books?
A. Good question. I think each of my characters have a touch of me in them. In The Light Tamer, I relate most with Amber. She has quick comebacks and a sassy personality. I’m known to be a little sassy at times. (in a good way).
Q. What’s your favorite color.
A. This week it’s purple
Q. Roller coaster or museum?
A. Roller coaster!
Q. What is your favorite type of food?
Q. Dog or cat?
A. Cat but I have 4 dogs and 2 cats
Q. Soda or Tea?
Q. E-books or real books?
A. I love my Nook but I love books too.
Q. Do you like stand alone books or series?
A. I love series. I invest so much time into loving a character that I like it to last a while.
Q. How many books in The Light Tamer?
A. Right now there will be three books and one novella.
Thank you for having me on your blog. Happy reading and stay cool this summer!
