On June 23rd and 24th, I will be one of the authors attending a discussion night at The Starving Artist Cafe located at 42 Dalhousie St., Brantford, Ontario. Over the weeks leading up to the event, I hope to bring you interviews with each of my fellow authors. As I wait for my colleagues to answer questions, I thought I would begin by telling you a little bit about me.
Two Day Book Festival / The Starving Artist Cafe / Menu
My name is Carol Ann King and I am the author of The Portal Prophecies Series.
A little about my books:
The main protagonist, Willow, is a teenage girl growing up on her own in a magical world where the events of the past are a mystery. A series of events set her and her friends on a journey like no other, leading them to a new understanding of themselves, their feelings and their abilities. As they begin to unravel all that previously transpired, they find themselves the sole opposition to a plot that could destroy all existence. The one clue they have is a book filled with hundreds of predictions called ‘The Portal Prophecies’. Deciphering them however, will not be an easy task. Written by someone from their past, the pages are lined with riddle like poems. Even worse they appear to be in no particular order.
Each book is based on a different prophecy leading our heroes and heroines to new places and new friends while experiencing growing pains along the way. The entire series, delves deep into the understanding of magic and self-discovery, all the while questioning the right versus wrong equation on personal levels.
As the books progress, readers will find some new explanations for old tales, myths, legends, folk lore and unusual phenomena that could just make them question the validity of stories we all have grown up with. Vampires, Witches, Ghosts, Monsters, Santa Claus, Atlantis, Elves, Dragons, Faeries, find out the alternate truth to them all.
The Portal Prophecies Series currently has five books available and a sixth scheduled for release this fall!
