Ange'el Series by Jamie Le Fay
Do you have a character that you have been working on for a long time that still isn't quite ready, but fills you with excitement to work on the story?
In the second book of the series, we will learn more about Sathian. The devil that haunts the nightmares of the Ahe’ey is a lot of fun to write. He’s as lost as he is wicked and mercurial. We’ll learn more about Gabriel’s carbon copy and discover his perverse influence over the lives of the four royal descents of Ahe’ey. It’d be easy to succumb to his beauty, wit, intellect, and charm. It’s almost impossible not to feel sorry for the broken victim that hides under the creature’s madness. But the monster has committed unforgivable crimes. How much punishment must one endure to attain redemption?
If you could spend one-week with 5 fictional character, who would they be?
Atticus Finch (To Kill a Mockingbird) - I would like to hang out with this perfect human. I won’t lie, I’d try to steal a kiss or two, but soon we would move on to debating ethics, philosophy, history, and books.
“I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you're licked before you begin, but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what.”
Morgan Le Fay (The Mists of Avalon) – I’d love to spend some time with one of the most influential characters of my teen years. I’d take her to Vegas to watch Cher’s concert. We would sing If I can turn back time and recall that special moment in Avalon when Sir Lancelot was almost hers, almost . . .
“There is no sorrow like the memory of love and the knowledge that it is gone forever”
Bastian Balthazar Bux (The Neverending Story) – We would travel to Fantastica to visit our olive-skinned Atreyu. We will then travel together to see Morla, the ancient one. I suspect she has grown indifferent to the fate of the world, and we must beg her to join the resistance.
“The Nothing is spreading," groaned the first. "It's growing and growing, there's more of it every day, if it's possible to speak of more nothing. All the others fled from Howling Forest in time, but we didn't want to leave our home. The Nothing caught us in our sleep and this is what it did to us."
"Is it very painful?" Atreyu asked.
"No," said the second bark troll, the one with the hole in his chest. "You don't feel a thing. There's just something missing. And once it gets hold of you, something more is missing every day. Soon there won't be anything left of us.”
The Little Prince (The Little Prince) – Because he needs to share his most important lesson with several heads of state.
“And now here is my secret, a very simple secret: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
Elphaba (Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West) – The resistance needs Elphaba. I’ d knit two pink pussy hats for us to wear. I’d hold her hand and we’d march side by side with other change makers from all over the world.
“Remember this: Nothing is written in the stars. Not these stars, nor any others. No one controls your destiny.”
Where would you spend one full year, if you could go any where? What would you do with this time?
I would travel the world, wandering around museums and historical places, enjoying artworks, especially sculpture. I’d probably start in Paris, at the Louvre, where I would, once again, spend hours marveling at The Winged Victory of Samothrace. Then I’d jump on a flight to Stockholm to visit the Angel Musicians on the lower deck of Millesgården. The tour would have many stops around the world, but I’d finally return to the Bethesda fountain where I’d wait a few hours for the Ahe’ey to emerge from its waters.
Can you share you next creative project(s)? If yes, can you give a few details?
Sure. I’m halfway through the second book of the series. Both Angha and Zanus continue to unleash chaos into the world of humans and Ahe’ey, but Angha’s two-hundred Dragons are the least of our concerns. A destructive darkness emerges from the purest of beings. The ties and the love between the four Royal descendants are tested to their limit. Death lurks around the corner waiting to harvest its prize. The heroes will rise, but some will fall. It’s inevitable and definitive. Rage can and will kill. The Ahe’ey will come across an unlikely ally, one they’d prefer to destroy, but things are . . . complicated.
