So here it is, a guide to what’s happening now in my world of writing.
What is the working title of your book?
Wrath of Angels – Second Book in the Lilith Trilogy
Where did the idea come from for the book?
I’ve always been interested in where people come from, their start in life and how this affects them as adults. Some people carry their past as a burden while others break free of the past and start their lives anew.
In Destiny of Angels, the knowledge that Angel acquires during her childhood and young adulthood, gives her an unusual perspective on life and with these powers at her disposal, she takes control of her own destiny by deciding to close the chapter in her life that caused her so much trauma. In Wrath, Angel believes she is in control and can handle the powers of Lilith. It’s only once she sees how much her friends are suffering that she realizes what she has unleashed. Six of the deadly sins have been explored but wrath takes the upper hand in this second book.
What genre does your book fall under?
The Lilith Trilogy is contemporary fiction with a spiritual, occult flavour.
How long did it take you to write the first draft of your manuscript?
Almost a year.
What other books would you compare your story to?
It’s unlike any book I’ve read…perhaps that’s why I felt I had to write it!
Who or what inspired you to write this book?
I was waiting until we moved before I began this second novel but with my house not selling and with the story bubbling away inside me, I let the characters have free rein and they are writing the book.
What else about your book might pique the reader’s interest?
I write about real people, ones we can all recognise as friends, family and acquaintances. From the feedback from the first book, readers were keen to find out how there favourite characters develop and Wrath of Angels takes every one of them a little further on the journey of life.
I’m also just about to launch my first non-fiction book Wendy Woo’s Year – A Pocketful of Smiles – 101 ideas for a happy year and a happy you.
