UK Debut Author Spotlight: Bryony Pearce

2011 is fast becoming an amazing year for new talent in the Young Adult market.

I'd like to introduce to you all Bryony Pearce author of Angel's Fury which will be released on 4th July.

Just in case you haven't heard about this book yet, here is the blurb from Amazon:

Every atrocity. Every war. Every act of vengeance. One fallen angel walks the earth to bring mankind to its destruction...Turning love into hate, forgiveness into blame, hope into despair. Through the fires of hell he will come to haunt one girl's dreams. But what if everything she ever dreamed was true? Every time Cassie Smith tries to sleep, she is plagued by visions of a death: A little girl called Zillah. A victim of the holocaust. In desperation Cassie is sent for treatment in an old manor house. There she meets other children just like her. Including Seth...Seth who looks so familiar. Her dream becomes nightmare. And then reality.

Here is a link to the book trailer:
And because the lovely Bryony is new to us, I asked her to share with us five things we should know about her:
1. I have two children, a girl aged five and a boy aged two, and am a full time Mum, so at the moment my writing fits in around the children in odd puzzle shaped pieces.

2. My very first story was about a fifty pence piece who wanted to be a pirate, I was seven … which just goes to show that you never can tell …

3. I’m probably the most stubborn person there is (or was until I met my daughter). In terms of getting published this has actually been a very good thing.

4. I never win anything. My father says all the McCarthy luck was used up by my Grandfather; a rear-gunner in a Lancaster for three and a half years (life expectancy six months), he was shot down over France then walked home.

5. Which meant that when I became a winner of Undiscovered Voices 2008, the shock couldn’t have been greater.

… And now I'm sure I’m siphoning off my children’s Pearce luck-allocation because last week I won a box of really excellent cake!

Thanks for introducing yourself Bryony! I am so looking forward to reading Angel's Fury.

Bryony sound nice! I loved her second fact! A story about a 50 pence piece who wants to be a pirate?? Wonder how that one ends...!

Thank you both. Wish I could remember how my pirate penny story ended - maybe it could have been a bestseller :)
