An Interview with Victoria Simcox
Author of The Magic Warble
Everyone loves getting lost in story set in a magical world. What other books and/or authors inspired your world?
C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia were probably my greatest inspiration. I read these books as a child and wished that I could go with Lucy and her siblings through the wardrobe into Narnia. I also love J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter series, Cassandra Clare's Mortal Instruments series, and many other great fantasy novels. When I was a child I found that there was something very exciting about going on a magical adventure without having to have your parents come along. In reality it may actually be very scary, but to imagine it, this was the most fun.
How did you come up with so many unique character names?
For me, some of the names just popped in my head, like Werrien. The main character in my story, Kristina, is my daughter's name. Some other names I come up with are by taking an ordinary word and changing the letters around, and other names, I may do more research into their meaning.
Will there be more adventures for Kristina in the future? If so, do you have any teasers for your readers?
I'm actually finished my second book in this series, and it is available for purchase. It is called The Black Shard, www.theblackshard.com. I'm hoping to have 3, possibly 4 books in the series. In The Black Shard, Kristina goes back to Bernovem and partakes in another great adventure with Werrien; this time to his homeland, Tezerel. This book is also very adventurous, suspenseful, has magical characters, evil villains, a heroin, and is spiced up with romance.
