Book Monster Reviews and LITERAL ADDICTION are very happy to promo for the amazing author Ednah Walters today!
The first books she wrote were picture books about the adventures of a little lion called, “Little Leo and his pet Cockatoo”, which her kids loved hearing her read aloud. She eventually graduated to mid-grade chapter books, of which, “Goldilocks before the Three Bears” was part. After that, she tried her hand at contemporary romance and romantic suspense, but it didn’t go quite as planned, and besides, she couldn’t read them aloud to her kids.
As her children grew up and became teens, they wanted to read teen books, and vampires and werewolves were ‘cool’. A professor of Ednah’s once told her that you can either be the first or the best at what you do. She wasn’t really into the whole vampire/werewolf thing, so being ‘first’ was out. She also couldn’t see herself being the ‘best’. She settled for being ‘different’, and decided to write about fallen angels.
The idea for “Awakened” rose from ramblings of the imagination after Ednah came across stories of kris/keris daggers. All she knew was that the weapon had to be the center of her story, and soon the characters formed around it, and wouldn’t leave her alone until their story was told; especially an orphan named Lil.
“Awakened” is full of romance, mystery and adventure. Ednah believes in the power of love, and that’s why she spices up her stories with romance… even if they are slotted as Young Adult.
