‘5 Questions’ with Selina Fenech!

5 Questions

Today I’m thrilled to welcome indie author Selina Fenech to the blog as part of the new ‘5 Questions’ with authors series!

If you are an author who would like to participate in the series, fill out the questionnaire here! And if you are a reader who wants to suggest an author for the series, just send me an email!

Emotionally Charged

Describe your new book ‘Emotionally Charged‘ (Fairies and Fantasy Pty Ltd) in ten words or less

Emotionally Charged is about people who get superpowers from emotions.

Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?

I dreamed it! I had been ranting to a friend the day before about a trope in young adult books I see too often, the young girl falling in with the group of super-hot paranormals and super-hot guy. That night my half asleep mind worked overtime, plotting the whole concept out for me. I got up many times during the night to take notes, and my morning, I had my story.

Which of your characters is closest to your heart and why?

From a different novel, Memory, from Memory’s Wake is my favourite. She’s had a tough life and it’s fun to write a balance between her strength and fragility. She’s also fun to illustrate, with her funky hair style.

Do you have a day job? If yes, tell us about it and how did that affect your writing / publishing process?

I’m self employed as a visual artist as my day job, so I can shift my time around pretty easily when I want writing time. It also means I can design my own covers and illustrate my books.

Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about

I’m working on the following two books in my Memory’s Wake trilogy, a dark young adult fantasy set in a Victorian era style fairyland. They will also be illustrated, as the first book, Memory’s Wake, is.

Bonus Question! Fill in the blank: If you like ___, you’ll probably like my book too!

If you like Mellisa Marr or Holly Black, you’ll probably like my books too!
