Today, Zoom on Maud Wlek, author of Nayra, whose first volume entitled “Dark Magic” is already available!
Here are 7 answers to our questions that will allow you to better know this fantastic author!
1 / You were military, were you aware of your literary fiber before you enlisted in the army?
Absolutely not. And then, at this time of my life: I did not have the same desires or goals as today. I never liked to read until Christmas when my parents offered me the first volume of the famous saga “Harry Potter“. I was a very shy person, I was reading little and writing was not yet obvious to me. No doubt my lack of confidence slowed me down before I ventured into the adventure. The army has brought me much more confidence in me and I can say that without this commitment I would probably never have had the courage to realize what I did today by creating my own fantastic saga!
2 / How did you get the idea to write Nayra, what was the trigger?
My husband has been suffering from vascular algia for years. One day, I really felt the urge to escape completely from what we lived on a daily basis. This is how Nayra was born …
3 / To write to you, it is …freedom, leaving immortal a part of us.
4 / What do you have in common with the heroine of your saga Nayra, Lana Wolski?
Undoubtedly, I am as clumsy as she, if not more! I can also prove myself stubborn and characteristic but I am also very tolerant, honest and kind. As I often like to say: no one is perfect and that’s what makes us unique and beautiful in our own way.
5 / If you were to have only one magic power (just one!), what would it be and why?Difficult to choose one but I would opt for healing power. Seeing the people I love suffer breaks my heart and I would be delighted to be able to help them …
6 / You excel in the fantastic, what do you like so much in this register?
It gives me the impression of being free. It is a register where everything seems to me permissible, more so than in the others. And the fact of keeping one’s feet on the ground, with the share of reality peculiar to the fantastic, reinforces the illusion that everything is possible.
7 / In life, what are the three things that matter most to you?
The three things that matter most to me are:
I think that with these three qualities one can accomplish a lot of beautiful things!

The Story of Nayra
Lana Wolski, a seventeen-year-old French girl, lives a rather solitary life in the beautiful town of Montauban since her mother’s death six months ago. Yet his life will be upset in many ways when his father is offered a job opportunity that he can not refuse, leaving his children Tom, Lana and Joy the opportunity to come with him or not. Lana will choose to follow her father and brother to Williamstown, a small village in Massachusetts, United States.
From then on, her life will change completely. Indeed, she will soon be able to integrate and have friends, putting with ease in the skin of a typical American high school student. However, strange and supernatural events are going to confront it with a reality that it did not expect at all.
And who is this mysterious girl with the blazing hair that haunts her nights? Are ties of blood the basis of everything?

The story of Kafue
Gears tells the story of Kafue. Do we really have to take our destiny into our hands, when this one seems to have escaped us? Are there only happy chances? How can we keep the reason when love knocks at the door of our hearts?

Is Africa only that rickety child, described by many, that only the nourishing hand of Europe can cure?
All the answers to these many questions in Gears: a black novel inspired by real facts that retraces the journey of an African youth, very fascinated by the lights of Europe. In her quest for romance, Kafue, a beautiful young Beninese full of dreams and elves sees her life rocking after a meeting she believed idyllic.
