Interview with Eleyne-Mari Sharp

INN LAK'ECH cover 2018--300dpi

I’m happy to welcome Eleyne-Mari Sharp to talk about her book, “Inn Lak’ech: A Journey to the Realm of Oneness.” Having just finished this wonderful book, I’m excited to get a chance to chat with her about her visionary novel for young adults. It’s one of those books, I think, teens and adults can read and enjoy. Furthermore, it opens the door to discussions on so many deep, philosophical questions.

Eleyne-Mari brings a breath of experience to her work. She has been a writer, jewelry designer, events organizer, radio show host, and radio show producer. Added to this, she is a certified color therapist, spiritual aromatherapist, and crystal worker.

Now for the book. In “Inn Lak’ech,” Elm Sunday is a teen living in the seaside town of Little Blessing. We get to know this town and its inhabitants intimately (and for anyone who has lived in a small town, it just feels right). Elm’s life is shattered when her older boyfriend is murdered and later, her father dies. Young adult defiance and rebellion send Elm spiraling down. How does the Universe respond? Elm is about to find out. This is a story of connection, loss and grief, and redemption.

Welcome Eleyne-Mari! Thanks for being here.

It is my honor to be with you today, Ellis. Thanks for inviting me!

What were your first glimmers of this book? Was it the characters? The town? The overall concept?

Four years ago, I had no idea I was going to write a novel. Until then, I had written reams of short stories but never thought I had the patience to write about the same characters for several years. I thought it would be boring and I hate to be bored. Even though I was organizing writers conferences where “Writing the Novel” was the most well-attended of the workshops, I still remained unconvinced that novel-writing was for me. Then one day it happened. I got “the nudge” and I could not ignore it. From that point, my muse ran wild and Inn Lak’ech was always in my brain.

The place—Inn Lak’ech—came first. I had just learned about the Mayan expression, “In lak’ech,” which means “I am another yourself.” That’s when all the bells and whistles went off and I was guided to write about a waystation for soul families. It was a very exciting revelation and I had no idea where it would lead me, so I just went with the flow, riding the currents through color, crystals, sea magic, mother-daughter relationships, grief, angels, fairies, mermaids, and dragons.

One of the things I found fascinating about writing Inn Lak’ech was the way the story unfolded. In real life, I had grown up as an Air Force brat who moved around a lot during my first seventeen years, so I never had the small town upbringing of my protagonist. As I wrote, it was a complete surprise how the entire town of Little Blessing played like a movie on a continuous loop in my head. I walked the streets, I climbed Miss Vi, I ate a Triple Fudge cone at Holy Cow Sundaes, I played the sea drum at Moonwater Beach. And it wasn’t like I was imagining everything I wrote, more like I was RELIVING everything. I was intimate with every color, every resident, every blade of grass, and I hoped to convey that intimacy to my readers.

The element of water plays a large role in the book. Elm experiences water as death and rebirth. Could you talk a bit about how water is a source of spiritual renewal?

In science class, we learn that we cannot survive without water and our bodies are composed mostly of water. Yet we do not learn that we all have the ability to communicate and travel through the magnetic frequency of our bodies’ of water. Nor do we learn that we are polluting the waters with our negative thoughts, words, and deeds.

I was a baby when I was baptized in the Catholic church, so I don’t recall the experience but I do believe that water baptism is a spiritual act. Actually, I feel spiritually renewed every time I plunge into a pool or take a shower. I used to take water for granted, but now I remember to bless and thank the water for cleansing and hydrating me. Water is a part of me and I appreciate its gift.

How did your work with colors and crystals play a role in your development of Elm’s experience in Inn Lak’ech?

Thank you for asking that question because I never grow tired of talking about color and crystals!

 While envisioning Inn Lak’ech, I saw the place as one gigantic mood ring where everybody changes color at their own rate. And I wanted to share as much of my own color healing knowledge as possible so that readers could get an idea of color’s tremendous benefits, especially as an ascension support tool. The soul level colors in the book are the same ones that I teach in my 5th dimensional “Color Luminary” course—Pink, Blue, Gold, Green, Yellow, White, and Violet. Speaking of Violet, this color is also featured in the book because it is connected to the energies of Archangel Zadkiel, whose etheric realm just happens to be Inn Lak’ech.

One of my favorite crystals is rose quartz. Prior to writing the second draft of the scene where Glorie creates her own rose quartz tiara, I sat at my desk making the tiara from rose quartz points, beads, and sterling silver wire. (I call this fun research.) Even though I had never before created a tiara, I think it came out okay because it doesn’t fall apart when I wear it in my hair.

Little Blessing has some really interesting characters. Elm’s grandmother is a rather severe woman. I wondered if she symbolized how you view the Christian right? The town has very progressive elements and yet, it was being held back in many ways. One could say that about the US now. Thoughts?

Judging others is a weakness that I have been struggling to overcome for my own spiritual welfare. Of course, Ruth has no problem judging others and I suppose she does represent how I’ve viewed the Christian right. Unlike Ruth, I respect a person’s decision to choose their own religious path as long as they do not condemn others for following a different one. In real life, I have never known anyone as self-righteous and angry as Ruth. Nevertheless, I was guided to write her character as a bully, a religious tyrant.

As far as what is occurring in the United States, I agree with your assessment, Ellis. From my perspective, we cannot progress until we have released that which is no longer serving us.

I used to consider myself an omnist, a believer in all religions. Now, as I watch the crumbling of Christian faith throughout our country, I am neither frightened nor unhappy about it. As a former Catholic, I watch the pope on television and I sense that he is truly an authentic and loving humanitarian, but I don’t believe that the religion he represents is a just or loving one. Besides, religion was created by humans—not the Divine—and I’ve tried to keep that in perspective.

Has spirituality always been a part of your life?

No, although it became increasingly important to me during the past 30 years. I was raised as a Catholic but it was all boring recitation and incense until I became a teenager. I had never felt close to the Creator until I began hanging out at a coffee house for teens in our church and started listening to the musical scores of Jesus Christ Superstar and Godspell. My “Jesus loves me” period lasted maybe a year. After that, I called myself agnostic until I reached my thirties, when I discovered Louise Hay, aromatherapy, color and crystal healing, and a greater connection to all that exists on this planet.

What role do books like yours and other works of visionary fiction play in helping to shape the future?

What I am hoping is that readers of Inn Lak’ech and other visionary fiction works will be inspired to open their hearts and minds to see the bigger picture, that we are all connected—In lak’ech. I would be overjoyed if my books helped heal and raise the vibrations of young adult and adult readers because that was always my INNtention.

 What are you working on now?

Currently, I’m writing the prequel and sequel to Inn Lak’ech. This has been a lot of fun because I get to return to Little Blessing and write about places and people that I didn’t have the chance to explore in Inn Lak’ech. Oh—and I get to expand upon Elm’s synesthesia and create more flavors of ice cream, so that’s a huge bonus!

 “Seaglass Christmas: A Little Blessing Mystery” is a visionary fiction novel with a cozy mystery element. My protagonist, Mercy-Faith “Elm” Sunday, is eight-years-old in this book, living with her parents at Sunday’s Marina in beautiful Little Blessing. This is long before Big Dave became mayor and Glorie owned her “Sea Angels” mermaid store. I’m really enjoying the writing process because I get to think and play like an eight-year-old, solve problems, and enjoy the sights and sounds of Christmas months in advance. I was a voracious Nancy Drew reader when I was about Elm’s age and Seaglass Christmas is my homage to the teenage detective, but in a visionary fiction sort of way.

 At the time I was writing Inn Lak’ech, I swore I would never write a sequel. But as you know from reading the book, Ellis, one should refrain from swearing to prevent colorful orbs from floating and bursting over your head! Anyway, about a week after the ebook was released last August, I got that nudge again and found myself furiously scribbling down the outline of the sequel.

 Do you remember when Elm meets The Other Elm in my book? Her daughter is the protagonist in “Lightmover: The Illumination of Silver Violet.” It’s about a gifted teenager who shows the world how to shine, despite her brother’s resentment and her own disabilities. And one of the really fun elements in this book is that Sil-Vi owns a horse, who is her very best friend. I was crazy about horses when I was a kid and loved reading books like Black Beauty and watching My Friend Flicka and Fury on television. Sadly, I never got one as an adult, but I still think they are beautiful animals and giving Sil-Vi a horse allows me the opportunity to fantasize through her, which is another perk to being a novelist!

 When Lightmover is released in 2020, the Little Blessing series will have ended unless I am “nudged” to write another book. If that’s the case, I guess I’ll just continue to go with the flow!

We are all a drop in the same ocean

Splintered by AG Howard

Splintered

 

This is a re-imagining of Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. Alyssa Gardner is the great granddaughter of Alice Liddell, the real girl for whom Lewis Carroll created his masterpiece. But what if he got it all wrong? What if Carroll dumbed down and made the dangerous Wonderland merely magical and quaint? What if something truly horrific happened to Alice and was covered up?

Alyssa’s mother is in a mental hospital and, as the book opens, we follow the daughter and her peculiar artform utilizing dead bugs. Alyssa is edgy, artsy, and perhaps mad like her mother. Or is she? As her mother worsens, Alyssa is summoned back to under-land to face a curse put in place generations ago.

AG Howard has done a wonderful job in creating a dark, sinister under-land. Carroll’s book has a sophistication of language, but the tale can easily be read by grade-schoolers. Howard’s book confronts YA topics including mental illness, cruelty, animal abuse, and sexual awakening. Alyssa herself is no Alice. She has a dark side seen reflected in the character of Morpheus who is her guide in under-land. At times she is attracted to him and at times she is repelled, but she seems to have control over neither. This is book one of what is becoming a popular series.

What Will I Be Reading Over the Next Few Months?

Every once in a while, I scroll through the new offerings in my library’s YA e-books list. Often the “hottest” books are all checked out and I’m not great at waiting for the holds queue. Although if I really, really want a certain book, I will try it before resorting to buying it. Sometimes I find something available that I want to read right away. Sometimes nothing appeals and I run over to Amazon because they have a much better search engine that can find a book without me pulling my hair out! (Who designs these library search functions? I’m torn between whether I think they should be ashamed of themselves or just locked up in a mental ward.) Anyway, a recent search had me positively giddy with delight! I found a ton of books I’m interested in. I’ve listed them below and will be starting with Haunting the Deep by Ariana Mather. From there, I don’t know which title I’ll be able to get or when, but this is going to be my basic reading list. Maybe you’ll find a book below you might want to try, or comment on one you have already read. Let me know!!

Haunting the Deep– Ariana Mather

Haunting

“The Titanic meets the delicious horror of Ransom Riggs and the sass of Mean Girls in this follow-up to the #1 New York Times bestseller How to Hang a Witch, in which a contemporary teen finds herself a passenger on the famous “ship of dreams”—a story made all the more fascinating because the author’s own relatives survived the doomed voyage.”

The Appearance of Annie Van Sinderen– Katherine Howe

Appearance

“It’s July in New York City, and aspiring filmmaker Wes Auckerman has just arrived to start his summer term at NYU. While shooting a séance at a psychic’s in the East Village, he meets a mysterious, intoxicatingly beautiful girl named Annie.

As they start spending time together, Wes finds himself falling for her, drawn to her rose-petal lips and her entrancing glow. There’s just something about her that he can’t put his finger on, something faraway and otherworldly that compels him to fall even deeper. Annie’s from the city, and yet she seems just as out of place as Wes feels. Lost in the chaos of the busy city streets, she’s been searching for something—a missing ring. And now Annie is running out of time and needs Wes’s help. As they search together, Annie and Wes uncover secrets lurking around every corner, secrets that will reveal the truth of Annie’s dark past.”

The Last Leaves Falling– Sarah Benwell

Last

“A teen grapples with ALS and his decision to die in this “deeply moving” (Booklist, starred review) debut novel infused with the haunting grace of Japanese poetry and the noble importance of friendship.

Sora is going to die, and he’s only seventeen years old. Diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease), he’s already lost the use of his legs, which means he can no longer attend school. Seeking a sense of normality, Sora visits teen chat rooms online and finally finds what he’s been longing for: friendship without pity.

As much as he loves his new friends, he can’t ignore what’s ahead. He’s beginning to lose the function of his hands, and soon he’ll become even more of a burden to his mother. Inspired by the death poems of the legendary Japanese warriors known as samurai, Sora makes the decision to leave life on his own terms. And he needs his friends to help him.”

It Wasn’t Always Like This– Joy Preble

It Wasn't

“In 1916, Emma O’Neill is frozen in time. After sampling an experimental polio vaccine brewed on a remote island off St. Augustine, Florida, she and her family stop aging—as do the Ryans, her family’s business partners. In a way, this suits Emma fine because she’s in love with Charlie Ryan. Being seventeen forever with him is a dream. But soon a group of religious fanatics, the Church of Light, takes note. Drinking the elixir has made the O’Neills and Ryans impervious to aging, but not to murder—Emma and Charlie are the only ones who escape with their lives.

On the run, Emma is tragically separated from Charlie. For the next hundred years, she plays a cat-and-mouse game with the founding members of the Church of Light and their descendants. Over the years, a series of murders—whose victims all bear more than a passing resemblance to her—indicate that her enemies are closing in. Yet as the danger grows, so does Emma’s hope for finding the boy she’s certain is still out there . . .”

A Psalm for Lost Girls– Katie Bayer

Psalm

“Tess da Costa is a saint—a hand-to-god, miracle-producing saint. At least that’s what the people in her hometown of New Avon, Massachusetts, seem to believe. And when Tess suddenly and tragically passes away, her small city begins feverishly petitioning the Pope to make Tess’s sainthood official. Tess’s mother is ecstatic over the fervor, while her sister Callie, the one who knew Tess best, is disgusted—overcome with the feeling that her sister is being stolen from her all over again.

The fervor for Tess’s sainthood only grows when Ana Langone, a local girl who’s been missing for six months, is found alive at the foot of one of Tess’s shrines. It’s the final straw for Callie. With the help of Tess’s secret boyfriend Danny, Callie’s determined to prove that Tess was something far more important than a saint; she was her sister, her best friend and a girl in love with a boy. But Callie’s investigation uncovers much more than she bargained for—a hidden diary, old family secrets, and even the disturbing truth behind Ana’s kidnapping. Told in alternating perspectives, A Psalm for Lost Girls is at once funny, creepy and soulful—an impressive debut from a rising literary star.”

The Inconceivable Life of Quinn– Marianna Baer

Inconceivable

“Quinn Cutler is sixteen and the daughter of a high-profile Brooklyn politician. She’s also pregnant, a crisis made infinitely more shocking by the fact that she has no memory of ever having sex. Before Quinn can solve this deeply troubling mystery, her story becomes public. Rumors spread, jeopardizing her reputation, her relationship with a boyfriend she adores, and her father’s campaign for Congress. Religious fanatics gather at the Cutlers’ home, believing Quinn is a virgin, pregnant with the next messiah. Quinn’s desperate search for answers uncovers lies and family secrets—strange, possibly supernatural ones. Might she, in fact, be a virgin?”

INTERVIEW WITH HEATHER S. FRIEDMAN RIVERA

 Custom Book Cover Heather Rivera Exaltia Ebook

I first became acquainted with Heather’s work through reading her book Ultreia. It’s a wonderful book about a woman named Tess and her spiritual journey while running a past-life travel agency. Such a great premise! Recently, I’ve begun reading her fun, fantasy series for middle-grade readers (ages 9-12) called The Prism Walkers.

In the first of the series, entitled Into Exaltia, we meet twelve year old Sara and her ten year old sister Molly. They are visiting their grandmother over spring break. The girls are bored and it’s up to Sara to keep Molly entertained and out of trouble. Things take a turn when a magical portal is opened and they find themselves in Exaltia. Sara and Molly are drawn into an adventure and towards their destiny.

Welcome Heather. I’m glad you could join us to talk about your books for young readers.

How did the idea for Prism Walkers come to you?

Thank you so much, Ellis, for having me today. I was working on the books about Tess that you mentioned above. My husband and I were flying to Europe for a vacation and some book research for that series in May 2014. Earlier that morning I had read an Edgar Cayce reading about myself and it mentioned that I would enjoy writing children’s books. I dismissed the idea immediately. However, the first night that we slept in Dublin, as I was waking up, the story of the Prism Walkers “downloaded” into my head. Most of my stories come to me as I am waking up and this one was no different. I told my husband that morning over breakfast, “Well, I guess I am writing a children’s book.”

Are you more like Sara or Molly? And, how so?

I am more like Sara. Although I think I may have a bit of Molly’s sass too. My younger sister and I spent a lot of time at our grandma’s house when we were growing up. We enjoyed our time with our grandmother very much. The house in the Prism Walker books is modeled after my grandma’s house.

When I was growing up, I took it upon myself to keep my sister entertained. I would make up fantasy adventures for her and make-believe the backyard was a magical land. Our uncle also gave us a prism that we loved to look through.

What were your favorite kinds of stories at their ages? Any favorite authors come to mind?

Good question. I had to go back in my mind a bit to remember. I did like the Nancy Drew mysteries. I also enjoyed Judy Blume books, E.W. Hildick’s “The Active Enzyme, Lemon Freshened, Junior High School Witch.” I also enjoyed “The Hobbit” by JRR Tolkein, and “The Phantom Tollbooth” by Norton Juster.

I also read and re-read Henry David Thoreau’s “On Walden Pond”. Some of it was beyond my level of understanding as a child but I was determined to keep reading it. I took that book everywhere and still have that beat up copy.

Since you write fiction for both grown-ups and kids, I’m curious if you have a preference for one over the other, or find each allows you to express a different creative side?

I enjoy writing for grown-ups and kids and tend to write my young reader books in between the adult books. I love allowing the child-like part of me to play and explore wherever my imagination wants to take me. Writing about fantasy worlds gives me a lot of freedom. As a child I imagined all sorts of magical worlds so I’m just continuing this as an adult.

Can you give us a hint of what’s to come as the series unfolds? You leave us a tantalizing clue at the end of book 1 that Exaltia may have spilled over into the girls’ world. What kinds of things will the Prism Walkers be up against next?

In the second book, “In Search of Emerald Bay”, there is indeed a crack between worlds that threatens the survival of magical Exaltia. Sara and the other Prism Walkers are in a race against time to save Exaltia and all who live there.

In addition, I just completed the third Prism Walker book. It’s called “Inside the Crystal”. In this book the Prism Walkers, along with their elven friends, find themselves in a world very different from Earth or Exaltia—a land called Mandriland. “Inside the Crystal” will be out this year.

All of the Prism Walker books are illustrated by Martin Kaspar from Prague. He is an amazing artist who quickly understood the vision of the books and captured the characters and setting perfectly.

INTERVIEW WITH AUTHOR, ABIGAIL BORDERS

Abigail Borders is a fellow children’s writer. She has a brand new fantasy available from MuseItUp. Abigail grew up in Asia and is fluent in three languages. There’s no doubt her experiences abroad fuel her writing from her home in Southern California. She has one son she refers to as “El Kiddo”. I’m excited to host her here to talk about her new book entitled, Cyrion.

prop12 (3)The blurb: Jon and Saul come home to find their village torched, and everyone they know kidnapped by evil goblin troopers. Armed with little more than rotten eggs and help from their new friend Anya, they take the goblins on and rescue their parents. Only, they somehow end up trying to save one race from slavery, and another from complete annihilation.

Welcome Abigail.

Thank you, Ellis. I am honored to be here.

What was your inspiration for Cyrion and can you tell us a little about it?

I started writing Cyrion roundabout July of 2012. El Kiddo was bored out of his skull and driving me up the wall. I needed to come up with something fun to do with him (like write a story) or lose what few marbles I had left.

I hope “desperation” counts as “inspiration”?

As for the rest, well, I suppose I’m a bit of a magpie. I drew inspiration from my life experiences, people I’ve been lucky enough to befriend and/or am related to, and conversations with my Kiddo.

As a teen, were you the cheerleader, nerd, geek, or something else?

Honestly, I’m unsure how “geek” differs from “nerd”, but I was definitely not a cheerleader. I did my own thing in school, and I performed well enough academically to encourage my grumps (grown-ups) to continue letting me do my own thing.

I do have small groups of close friends – much like my characters in Cyrion. I was going to say “MCs”, but most of my characters have a close group of friends. Even a secondary character like Naeem has Greta.

I can’t imagine going through life without my friends. People I can count on to laugh, cry, and celebrate life’s crazy moments with me. People who are on my side no matter what or when or why, but never hesitate to call me on my bullsh!t. When my notes went missing a week before finals, my friends came through by lending copies of their notes to help me prepare. When I was sick, lonely and far from my family in college, my friends came through with phone calls, emails, packets of Lemsip and cups of soup. When faced with tough decisions, my friends came through with support and prayers.

My friends talked me out of deleting my WIPs when I felt down about my writing ability. I almost chucked Cyrion into my recycle bin at least five times when it was still a WIP. They challenge me to move out of my comfort zone, and write in new genres like romance and science fiction. Although my foray into science fiction resulted in the Burned Bridges Protocol, my attempt at romance is definitely a dead duck.

I don’t think we ever had a label, my friends and I. I know I always thought of labels as irrelevant.

fabaiola 018

What impact would you like to see your books have on the world?

I’ve written two books thus far, The Burned Bridges Protocol, a young adult science fiction novella published by Giant Squid Books in December 2014, and Cyrion, a middle grade fantasy published by MuseItUp in June 2015.

This is a tough question for me because I never actually expect to be a published author. I only started Cyrion because Kiddo was bored, and the Burned Bridges Protocol started out as a dare. That being said:

  • From Cyrion – Cultivate and cherish your friends. Good friends will help you become a better person, and you, in turn, can help them become better people. Friendship is a two-way street, never take your friends for granted.
  • From The Burned Bridges Protocol – You are the author of your own destiny. Lilliane was chosen to be expendable. Her actions made her indispensable. Lemon was chosen to be a machine. His actions made him more human than a few of the human characters in the book. God gave us free will for a reason.

What’s your next project?

I am currently working on two projects. One is a short story I co-wrote with Kiddo that involves a minotaur, blueberry pie, and the properties of a circle. The other is a middle grade (for now anyway, who knows what it will morph into in the future) fantasy that involves a New-Yorker and two snarky fairies.
