Most teenage girls know their name, where they came from, who they are. Not G, a beautiful redhead with unusual markings on her wrist. She gets her name from a silver locket she keeps around her neck, unaware the engraved letter “G” on its front holds the secret to her past.
G’s life before the age of six has been a mystery to her. Each night for the last twelve years she’s been haunted by the same nightmare—a war. Horrendous beasts, warriors able to wield the four elements, and a boy who saves her by means of blue fire taunt her memory. But on her eighteenth birthday, G’s life begins to unravel. When she meets her new Chemistry professor, a man with an uncanny resemblance to the boy who saves her, she knows there must be more to her dreams.
It’s dangerous not knowing who you are, what you’re capable of, and what future awaits you. Especially when the darkness that slaughtered your entire world, just found you.
What inspired me to write Seasons Within
A year and a half ago I was living in Vancouver, Canada. I had no working visa, nor family or close friends so I was most of the time stuck in my house working on a previous book (book that I hope I can someday publish). To pass the time I used to love taking my headphones and tour around the city. I used to take the sky train for hours, looking through the window, imagining what the people on that train were going through or trying to understand some of the unusual reactions from some of the passengers.
One windy day in October, I took a ride on the sky train and I was so distracted that I got out a few stops away from my house. I remember I was listening to my shuffle playlist when it switched to Breath of Life by Florence and the Machine. (If you haven’t heard this epic song, open YouTube, copy the title/name and enjoy!) That day, the street was covered with hundreds of leaves. All of them were red and pretty big.
As I walked through the street, the wind came and made all the leaves fly. The mix between the epic music, and the dancing leafs was beyond incredible! I got so excited that I began to dance among the flying leaves. So I was there, shaking my arms and jumping around a bunch of leaves looking like a crazy person but then… Boom! It happened, for a moment there I felt like I was the one wielding the leaves. As if they were following the movements of my hands.
I remembered that for a second I saw her, bright red hair, just like the leaves, fair skin and intense grey eyes. I sat down on the street and wrote pages and pages of G, a girl who had the power to move Nature in a world that was possible. I began to imagine Terra, their cities with floating temples, the horrendous beasts that prayed on the villagers, the main characters, the romance, the adventure, the rules and then, I was hooked.
Major geek by day, hermit writer by night! Love books, sugar gliders and everything that comes in a delicious taco.
I’m the author of the YA fantasy series, Seasons Within
I spend my time writing, planning on writing, reading, drinking coffee like there was no tomorrow, MMA and chilling with my friends and loved ones.
