Author Interview – Heidi Garrett

Is there anyone you’d like to acknowledge and thank for their support? It would have been impossible to publish and continue writing without the intense support of my husband. He’s been with me every step of the way.

Every writer has their own idea of what a successful career in writing is, what does success in writing look like to you? Creating stories, worlds, and characters that readers love. If you’ve done that, you’re a successful writer. If you’ve done that, it’s enough.

Tell us about your new book? The Queen of the Realm of Faerie is a fairy tale fantasy. Melia, the main character, is an eighteen-year-old half-faerie, half-mortal. What’s it about? The story is about Melia’s journey to find the place where she belongs as she untangles her family legacy and takes on her own life challenges. True Love’s First Kiss is a compilation of the first three books in the series. Why did you write it? When my maternal grandmother passed away, I had a strong need to pass on what she’d given me. In The Queen of the Realm of Faerie, the spring faerie, Flora, is the character inspired by Grandma. Flora isn’t Grandma, but she is the essence of her, and the relationship she has with Melia transforms the half-faerie like my relationship with Grandma transformed me.

Sometimes it’s so hard to keep at it – What keeps you going? I have nowhere else to go. If I stopped writing, there’s nothing that could fill that writing-shaped hole.
