Welcome to my blog. Please tell us about your novel, A Golden Princess.
Small for her age, Princess Nyala is determined to be noticed and someday rule with fairness and valor in Kaloma. Then one day, all changes when she looks upon the stars and they predict her accident. After she awakens to a broken body, her father takes to his goblet and she steps into power in her kingdom at sixteen.
Her father said that no man would choose a half-broken princess. Is that how Prince Nicolao sees her after the accident? Her heart is unsure and out of fear she keeps him away to avoid a broken heart. As soon the other kingdoms discover the condition of the Royal House of Kaloma, they too will prey on her vulnerability to steal her kingdom from her hands.
Where did you get your inspiration for this story?
It came to me one day, when I didn't expect it. I wondered about medieval times and a crippled main character. I have never seen another medieval book that deals with the subject and it thrilled me to do something about it. Also, once I saw a young man whose eyes, hair and skin were in different tones of gold, but with an undertone of black too. I asked him about his parents and his father was black skinned while his mother was white. (Brazilian descendants) it made such an impression on me, that I had to have a golden princess for one of my Royal Romance books.
That is so interesting. What kind of research did you do?
Some about wheel chairs in medieval times. Also about horse accidents and back injuries.
Tell me about one of the main characters and what you love about him or her?
Nyala, the princess in this tale, is small and shy yet, when life throws a curve at her, she becomes a hero that not even she could see before. She is so much like me in many ways, and that keeps her close to my heart. You can say we are soul mates.
