Author Interview: Jennifer Allis Provost

Today I’m hosting author Jennifer Allis Provost aspart of the blog tour for her new book, Rise of the Deva’shi

  1. How did you get started in writing?

I’m a born storyteller. I’ve been making up stories for as long as I can remember; before I could write, I drew horribly lopsided pictures of my characters. Maybe that makes me a born comic artist!

  1. Who is your favorite character?

Aeolmar and Latera, the alpha couple of Rise of the Deva’shi.

  1. Who is your favorite author?

I have to pick just one? It’s a toss-up between Robin McKinley, Patricia Briggs, and Ilona Andrews.

  1. When do you usually write?

I set aside a few hours in the morning, when the house is nice and quiet (and I can hear myself think).

  1. Do you listen to music while writing? If so what?

I don’t listen to music, but I do tend to have the television on in the background with a movie featuring superheroes and flashy explosions.

 

  1. What books have most influenced your life?

The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley, A Swiftly Tilting Planet by Madeline L’Engle, The Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien, and Bullfinch’s Mythology.

  1. What are you passionate about these days?

Oh, so many things. Mostly I’ve been passionate about wellness, and how to incorporate healthy habits into daily life. As writers we tend to sit around a lot, and that’s not good for our bodies or our minds. Besides, if we don’t get up, get out, and experience new places and ideas, how will we come up with ideas for the next book?

Blurb:

A stolen girl.A legendary champion. A plan that might destroy Parthalan once and for all…

Aeolmar, First Hunter of Parthalan, leads a solitary life. Having long since abandoned his quest to kill Mersgoth—the demon that murdered his family—Aeolmar moves through his days with cold efficiency. Everything changes when he leads a training mission in Brennus, where he’s attacked by Mersgoth himself, and saved by an unlikely heroine.

Latera, first born and heir to Gannera’s throne, is kidnapped and left for dead in Parthalan’s vast forests. A lone human amongst Parthalan’sfae, she makes a home in Brennus, and lives a quiet life—until she finds herself defending a wounded First Hunter from a clutch of demons.

Back in Parthalan, Harek warns Asherah of something called the deva’shi—a warrior loyal only to the demon lord, Asgeloth. Both Aeolmar and Latera suspect that there is more to this deva’shi than what Harek has told them, but before they can learn the truth, Parthalan’s borders are attacked. Will Aeolmar and Latera be able to stop the deva’shi in time, or is it a distraction to hide Harek’s true plans?
