Imagine being stuck in a world where every blade of grass is green, it’s all trimmed to the perfect size and every child is well-behaved just as their parents would wish them to be. This is what Hayden Roux has to go through day after day, from beginning to end, but what she doesn’t know is she’s about to be thrust into an eccentric place, where a very big secret is waiting for her. Her difficult life of being hated by everyone takes an upturn when she finds herself in the midst of White Grover.
While trying to fit in at school, she has the big, challenging task of finding the beloved Pearl. Through broken friendships and lost trust, Hayden experiences a journey that she won’t soon forget.
There’s just one simple question: Is she willing to die?
Mortals will take you into her world to discover the answer to that very scary question!
Beside the fact that I know an actual author and she sits behind me in English where I can easily sneak peak at some of her writings. Not that I am bragging but I think its SUPER AWESOME that she was able to do what we most think is the impossible. If anyone is interested in buying Mortals you can purchase it here online at Barnes and Noble (:
Here is a little questionnaire with Bhabika!1.What kind of genre do you think your novel lies in? kids, teenagers, everyone?
I find it easier to write for people who are the same age as me. So, the main characters in Mortals are adolescents, which is generally the age that reads the book. As my writing grows more mature, as do my characters. As for genre, Mortals is an adventurous novel, full of evil villains and crazy chases. I truly hope to capture the attention of every reader that dives into this book.
2. How did you get interested in writing this particular genre?
The books I was reading throughout this age were all adventurous, so dutifully, I wanted this same perspective on my own page.
3. 3 years after the publishing of Mortals what have you learn as an author?
I have grown as a writer, not just with the current novel I am writing, but also with papers that I write for school. I know more techniques, more vocabulary, and more scenarios as I experience them day by day. I’ve learned how to string words together better than ever before, and I truly hope that my readers can experience my growth as they read my new novel.
4. What kind of moral support did you get? family, friends, etc.
My parents have been the greatest influence on me throughout this whole process. They helped me through the publishing process and have moved mountains trying to reserve radio interviews, book signings, and college appearances so that my name can be known.
5. What kind of support and inspirations should other young writers look at?
There is no greater inspiration than what is in the depths of your imagination. Unless you’re trying to write a nonfiction book, remember that you can make up any kooky situation and still be okay. The idea is to let the words flows onto the page and create a story.
