Interview with Author Ceara Comeau!


This is the first of hopefully many more Author Interview/Guest Posts with authors I have met at the latest Author Event at Zorvino Vineyard. There are two more Author Events coming up – one in April and the other in July.

Please help me welcome Author Ceara Comeau to Jemsbooks Blog.

Thank you, Ceara, for coming today. It is a sincere pleasure to have you.

Let’s begin. Please share your beautiful book with us.

1. What is the title of your book?

Memories of Chronosalis

2. Please, tell us a little about your book.

It’s one thing to read about heroes saving worlds in far-off galaxies, but to become one is an entirely different story. Sixteen-year-old Amber Oak wanted nothing more than to stay in her own world of music and solitude. But the inhabitants of Galaseya, a Utopian planet rooted in the past, had other ideas in mind. According to them, only she wielded the power to stop the dark forces threatening their home. At first, Amber sympathized with the planet, but saw no reason to involve herself in the affairs of something outside her world. But the stakes have risen when she discovers that Galaseya is not only the world that has been invading her dreams, but also the place her estranged family originated from. With this new knowledge, questions began to surface and secrets of Amber’s life come to light causing her to second guess everything she knows.

Jjs: I love your cover, Ceara! The story sounds fascinating!

3. What genre do you write?

Primarily, I write science-fiction/fantasy. But, I would like to delve into other genres as well.

Jjs: If you do delve into other genres, please share them with us.

4. What inspired you to write this book?

This book originally came from a series I began writing when I was twelve. It was titled, “Amber Oak Mysteries”. The series wasn’t going anywhere and the farther I got along in it, the less sense it made. Looking back, I was trying to find my voice and a lot of what I wrote was leaning toward science-fiction/fantasy elements. I knew that all the tales of Amber Oak had potential. So, two and a half years ago, I decided to completely rewrite the story. It was a challenge to break away from what I had worked hard on for so many years, but I knew that I could do better.

Jjs: The more we write the better we become. 

5. How long have you been writing?

I have been writing for about thirteen years, but have self-published other books during ten of those years.

Jjs: Any time you want to share those books, feel free. You can always come back to do that.

6. What is a little-known fact about you that you can share?

Whenever I am stuck in a writer’s block, sometimes I’ll stop and play a Nancy Drew computer game or some other puzzle game. It allows my brain to continue processing the blockage by focusing on another puzzle. It’s a strange method, but it works!

Jjs: That’s an interesting way to recharge your creativity.

7. Besides writing, what are some of your other hobbies or interests?

I love researching my family’s genealogy as well as my friend’s.

Jjs: That may be another way you become more creative when you do research and fill in the missing pieces of your family’s lineage.

8. Is there a message, a lesson, or a moral to your story? If so, would you to share it?

My story has three main points that both teenagers and adults can relate to. I address the importance of protecting the environment, racial issues, and political corruptness.

Jjs: These are all important issues of today that will make your book more intriguing for readers.

9. Are you a morning person or a night person?

Definitely a night person. Some of my best story ideas come to me from midnight or later.

Jjs: I guess we all have our own time clocks that charge our creativity and turn it on.

10. What is your favorite place to write?

I like to write outside in nature, weather permitted of course. But most of the time I like to sit in my chair either listening to music or the TV.

Jjs: That sounds soothing, Ceara. Whatever works for you. 

11. What are you working on now?

I am working on the prequel to “Memories of Chronosalis”. It will be from the viewpoint of a sub-character.

Jjs: Fantasy and sci-fi enthusiasts will be intrigued especially if they read the first book to get into the characters.

12. Please list whatever links you would like to leave.
