“Am I losing my mind?”
Paige couldn’t help but question her sanity. What other explanation could there be for her hearing a conversation held barely above a whisper in the back of a classroom full of students? What about coming home to find one of those very classmates lying in wait in the darkness of her home, ready to attack her?
Confused, frustrated and feeling every ounce of her social ostracism, Paige confides in the one person she’s always been able to count on: her mom. But when her mom reveals a deeply rooted, unbelievable family secret, Paige discovers her world is filled with more than she ever imagined possible. A world where fairytales live alongside nightmares and secrets are the glue that binds them together. Suddenly no one is who they seem and Paige is faced with more questions than answers. Can she survive in a world filled with creatures scarier than anything she could imagine and where deceit runs as thick as blood? Or will the truth send her over the edge?
An Interview with Paige Tailor
It’s rare that Paige has the time between training and…well, the many other things going on in her life since graduation. But I was able to catch up with her and she agreed to an interview, as long as I kept it short since she was on her way out to meet up with Naialah.
Me: Before we jump into things, how about telling us what you’ve been up to since returning from Varulean and graduating high school.
Paige: Until my cast came off, I focused on magic and gaining more control over my abilities. As soon as it came off though, I jumped back into training with Naialah. Both are going well, but magic is definitely still where I excel, which is frustrating when you’re training with someone like Naialah and all you really want to do is be able to kick her ass.
Me: Speaking of, your frustration with Naialah was very apparent from the moment you two met. Some of your other feelings weren’t as easily readable though and I’m curious, if you don’t mind sharing, how are things between the two of now?
Paige: Well, they’re…complicated. I try to stay focused on the fact that she is my friend because that is the more important aspect of our relationship. I am still trying to figure out who I am and how I feel about myself and the feelings I carry around with me on a number of things that have happened in my life as of late. And really, there is so much more going on now, and I’ve learned a few more details that I can’t share just yet, but they play an even bigger role in my relationship with her. Like I said, it’s complicated.
Me: Interesting, especially the part about being unable to share. I won’t push, but I am very curious. How about things with Rachel? She definitely had it out for you and you for her. Any contact since?
Paige: No, nothing aside from a few dreams. More like nightmares, but I’d rather not get into that.
Me: Fair enough. I don’t want to keep you so just one last question. We are all dying to know what Naialah is. Has she told you?
Paige: Like I mentioned before, I can’t really share, it isn’t my place to say. But yes, I do know and it does play a role in the dynamic between us. As if we needed any other factors to get in the way. LOL!
Me: Thank you for giving us a moment of your time, Paige.
Paige: Anytime. Thank you for sharing my story.
As an added bonus, I asked Paige to share with is a few of her favorite things in pictures and here is what she answered:
About the Author:
There were three things Jessica loved to do growing up; reading, writing and playing music. She discovered her love for writing at a young age, when she realized she could create anything she wanted with words. Jessica lives in Sacramento, CA with her husband, four children, a goldfish named Sparkle and their cat, Talula. When she isn’t working on the next Paige Tailor novel, taking her children to one activity or another, or folding the never ending laundry of a six person family, Jessica enjoys playing her clarinet in the community band, reading while enjoying a cup of coffee or heading to the theater and catching a movie with her husband.
