As the God of Fertility, Pan is used to maidens flocking in droves to his pastures. So when Syrinx denies him, he’s determined to win the one that got away. He poses as a mortal to get close to her, but he doesn’t count on falling hard for his conquest—hard enough to make a life and stay.
But Syrinx is falling in love with a man that doesn’t exist. Can Pan hide his identity forever, or will the truth tear them apart?
1. Do you have a secret talent?
Um…I’m good at Words with Friends- does that count?
My book is inspired by a song, actually. It’s a classical piece written by Debussy called Syrinx. You can listen to this really awesome flutist (principal flute of the Berlin Philharmonic) play it on
It is so mysterious with deep longing and melancholy. It also sounds very exotic. Every time I hear the solo, it takes me away to a far away place somewhere in primordial spring when cell phones and computers hadn’t been invented.
3. What was the easiest thing about writing this book?
I loved writing about the character, Pan. He’s mischievous, cunning, and crafty and loves to play games. His personality came right off the paper. He would have taken over every scene if I’d let him.
4. Is there a word you love to use?
Diaphanous. I love the way it sounds and I love what it means: light, delicate and translucent. But, it’s not a word I can use a lot because it’s not an everyday word that just pops out of your mouth. Oh, this light is so diaphanous….
5. Any real or imaginary pets?
I have a mini doxen named Jedi. He loves to go on walks and bark at kitties in the window! He doesn’t like my flute playing at all and whimpers when I play up high. Poor doggie! My writing is much more quiet!
