The interview of Maud Wlek in 7 questions!

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:
  • Love,
  • Tolerance,
  • Respect.
I think that with these three qualities one can accomplish a lot of beautiful things!

The interview of the novelist S-P Decroix in 7 questions!

Today, we are zooming in on SP Decroix, the author who has just published her novel La Princesse du fond des Temps (The Princess of the deepest Times), which arouses great interest on the part of many readers have pre-ordered their copy prior to its release.

We asked her a few questions so she would have less secrets for you …

1 / How many years have you been writing and how did you start writing your first novels?

I have been writing novels since I was 16 years old. I am 41 years old today, it can be said that I have been writing for 25 years. But, I must say that I had begun long before, writing poetry.

2 / What was your intention when you wrote La Princesse du fond des Temps (The Princess of the deepest Times)?

This question also answers the second part of the first.
When I wrote this fantastic tale at the age of 16, my very first, it was above all for my sisters Emmanuelle and Aurore aged at the time of 12 and 7 years. I wanted to change their ideas, to introduce them to the magic of dreams. And at their age, what better way than a beautiful heroine with a harsh character in search of an extraordinary adventure?

3 / To write to you, it is …

to escape, to invite others to travel in my worlds, is also to share, quite simply.
I find it wonderful to tell myself that I manage to make people dream, to transport people with me, “elsewhere”, just with words … it’s really fantastic.

4 / What do you have in common with the heroine of your novel, Sokorie?

No doubt: my determination, because it took me time, hard work and courage to get to where I am now.
There were many obstacles, I do not doubt for a moment that there are certainly others, but I am and will always remain standing, even if I have often doubted it. And it’s good to know that an editor really believes in you. I would never thank Lysons enough editions for their support.

5 / If you were to be the heroine of a legend other than that of the Princess of the deepest Times, what would it be?

It is certain that I would not be a new “Snow White” or “Cinderella”. I like that my heroines are a little more “resourceful”. So I would rather think of a Legend like that of “Mulan“, a great-hearted adventurer who was probably one of the first to be in the fight of prejudices. She could be assimilated to the female cause, just like the “Princess Leïa” of “Star Wars”.
Strength” is with them but not only; gentleness, intelligence also, and again: determination.

6 / You have had many literary prizes, how do you live this recognition of your work and this growing awareness?

Yes, I’ve been in competitions for a long time. It is always moving to know that your work is enjoying and that it is rewarded. But I do not think I have real notoriety. it is necessary to be wise and to remain humble because the way to be “recognized” is stony, and if to reach the summit is difficult, to fall is very easy, on the contrary. So I want to keep a cool head and act with caution, wisdom. On the other hand, if I can put this “recognition” at the service of just causes, I will do it. It is also in this context that I participate in the event of September of the “Pièces Jaunes” Foundation of my region.

7 / If you had a single message to convey to your readers, what would it be?

Hope is what keeps human peoples apart from darkness. Particularly during troubling, difficult, even atrocious events. It is also this fragile flame that allows us to see “further”. Believe in your dreams. Believe in yourself and always keep hope.
