I’m happy to host an interview today, this time with Judyann McCole, the author of “Adela Arthur and The Creator’s Clock”, a fantasy novel.
1) Are you a plotter or a pantser?
I think I’m a little of both. Sometimes I plot out everything and hate so I change it as I write. Other times I just dive in and get a few chapters written before realizing I need a plan.
2) Where did you get the inspiration for Adela Arthur and The Creator’s Clock?
It came from these girls I babysat for. They were in desperate need of girl power so I tired to write a book for them.
3) How long will your fantasy series be?
I had planned for 5 books total with Adela Arthur and the Creator’s Clock being the first. However I’m not really sure what will become of this series honestly.
4) What is your daily page or word count record?
I have no idea. Haha, I don’t keep track of that but I would say the longest I’ve written in one day took me about 6 and a half hours.
5) Please tell us a little about Adela Arthur and The Creator’s Clock!
Adela Arthur is a story about a young teen who find out that there is a world behind mirrors; Cielieu. Her parent’s gave their lives to protect all the creators in Cielieu and to make sure she never came back. However after being attacked and losing a friend Adela has no other choice but to go back.
6) What is your favorite fantasy novel of all time?
The Chronicles of Narnia for sure.
7) What are you working on right now?
I have a book coming out in the Fall/winter of this year, MOONRISE, so I’m working on that.
Adela Arthur and The Creator’s Clock
Author: Judyann McCole
To Who Ever This May Concern;
I wish I could tell you the contents of this book were purely fictional. That I, Adela Arthur, was just a normal sixteen year old from Portland and that dragons, giants, elves and mermaids were just myths. I wish these were legends shared from crazy old grandparents to crazy old grandparents around campfires. After all, that is what I used to believe.
I never would have thought they lived on the other side of our mirrors in a world called Cielieu. But they do…
I never would have thought there were humans, better known as Volsin that lived among them with the ability to create light from a single thought. But there are…
I never would have thought I was one of them… But I am…
I am the last Arthur and I was brought to the human world after a Volsin, filled with greed, began to strip the light from our kind.
The human world was supposed to be a safe haven… but he’s found us and the only way to stop him is to go back to Cielieu and begin training as a student in the Elpida Castle of Light.
Like I said I wish the contents of this book were purely fictional and not my life…

She begin writing when she was in middle school most of it was just simple poetry but she was inspired by Maya Angelou and even a little of Dr. Seuss.
