Snippet:
No
way am I that crazy.
‘Touch me, Roosa. You will see I’m real
enough.’
Touch him? Is he as crazy as I am? Okay,
so I’m going to touch him, just for my own peace of mind.
I reach out my hand, fingers extended,
trying to reach him but not move from the wall. A crooked smile appears
face. He takes a couple of steps forward, reaches out and touches me.
Lightning heat shoots out from him, races up my arm, switches direction and dives into my stomach. I snatch my hand
and grab my belly with both hands. The burning sensation knocks my knees out
from under me. I slump to the floor, still leaning on the wall. The room spins,
and my head swims. Tears mixed with stars blur my vision so there is no focusing.
Not enough air in here; my chest tightens as if the lungs inside are ready to
explode.

Medieval Worlds. Now, I hope to inspire young readers and those Young-at-Heart to read more through my Tales and Legends for Reluctant Readers set in these worlds-Ancient Egypt, Medieval Wales, and coming soon, a hair-raising adventure through ancient worlds in search of 5 rare Phoenix Feathers.
All of my books come with Free study guides and/or extensive
Back-of-the-Book materials.
My husband and I love to travel. In 2008, we spent three weeks in
Egypt traveling by local train from one end of the country to the other; in 2014, we spent three weeks in the UK driving over 1700 miles through England, Wales, and Scotland; and in 2016, we spent a week in Iceland. We’ve also traveled to Mexico, Jamaica, and Aruba. Our next big adventure will be to Greece and Italy.

 

When I’m not writing or traveling, our 4 grandkids keep us busy.

  1. When did you start writing and was there a specific event or person who influenced you to become as author?

 

I’ve been writing for a long time; I wrote my first poem in eighth grade. My college years and my teaching career solidified my love of the ancient world and the times of King Arthur. It wasn’t until I retired from teaching literature and writing that I had the time to devote to my own tales which had roamed around in my head for years.

 

  1. Are you currently working on a project, and if so, can you tell us about it?

 

Yes and yes! I have started a new five book series Feathers of the Phoenix, and the first book The Atlantean Horse. Rose from Sons of the Sphinx will share the spotlight in this series with her cousin Jerome. Both of them have special abilities that they are struggling to live with and still be teenagers. The adventure revolves around an old prophecy that says one day when the five feathers of the Phoenix bird are reunited with a white stallion and one-who-survived—both of which were saved from destruction by Poseidon when he destroyed Atlantis—the lost island will rise again long enough for all three to return to their home. It will then disappear forever. Naturally there are those who want to be at the rising in order to steal the treasures rumored to be in that lost city.

 

  1. What is your favorite writing snack?

 

Red licorice.

 

  1. If you could have dinner with any of your characters, which ones would you choose and why? What food would you serve?

 

I would love to sit with young Guinevere from my Guinevere trilogy, but I’m a picky eater. There’s very little food from Medieval times that I would eat.

 

  1. How do you relax, or what do you enjoy doing when you are not writing?

 

I love spending time with our grandkids. We two boys, ages 9 & 4, and two girls, ages 2 & 1. They are a lively bunch and keep us running.

 

  1. What’s your largest unfulfilled dream, and what are you doing to reach it?

 

Traveling. I want to visit those places in the ancient and medieval worlds—whose literature I taught–that I’ve read and written about. We’ve done Egypt, Wales, England, Iceland, but have a lot more to explore. Every other year we pick a destination and plan a 3-week trip. Due for the next one in 2018. Wonder where we’ll go?

 

  1. What do you fear most?

 

Losing those I care for most. We’ve had a lot of loses in our family in the past, and just in the last nine months, we have said goodbye to three.

 

  1. What advice would you give someone who wants to write a book some day?

 

Ask yourself these questions:

 

What type of story do you want to write?

Who are you writing for?

How will your characters/plot appeal to readers?

Why do you want to write?

Dorine White the author of The Emerald Ring

Monday, November 4th, 2013

Today we have Dorine White the author of The Emerald Ring visiting our blog.

Hello Dorine. What makes you passionate about writing?

I think it is more about the story than the writing. I love amazing plots full of magic and adventure. I sink myself into the stories and just let my imagination fly.

Beautifully spoken. How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?

The Emerald Ring took me about 3 months for the first draft, but it took (more…)
