Syl’s a princess of the fair Fae.
Her girlfriend Rouen is a princess of the dark Fae.
Mortal enemies. Girlfriends.
Relationship status: It's Complicated
All introverted geek girl Syl Skye wants is to get close to her girlfriend. But when you can kill with a simple touch, a normal date night’s not really in the cards. As it happens, Syl is also a sleeper-princess of the fair Fae. Last year after a freak accident, her power Awakened, granting her white flame to purify the darkness.
Rouen Rivoche is that darkness—a dark Fae princess whose power to bewitch mortals is as terrifying as the violet lightning she controls. Rouen is Syl’s total opposite. Her mortal enemy.
She’s also Syl’s beloved girlfriend.
And even though they joined forces to defeat the evil Circuit Fae who harnessed the killing magic in technology to take over the school…that was so last year.
Now, Syl’s touch could mean Rouen’s death. Her increasing power is spiraling out of control, threatening to burn down everything she and Rouen have built together.
Their lives, their love, their very world..
I really enjoy exploring the angstiness of being a teen, figuring out who you are, finding your first love. Growing up gay, I found very few books where being gay was normal, healthy and positive, so now it’s my privilege to write the books I wanted to read as a kid.
When writing a book, what is your favorite part of the creative process(outline, plot, character names, editing, etc)?
Oh, gosh. I love the shiny-new feeling of outlining a story for the first time, but there’s no feeling like finishing that final draft
When reading a book, what genre do you find most interesting/intriguing?
I love fantasy YA. Urban, epic, paranormal. *grabby hands*
If you could co-author with any author, past or present, who would you choose?
Gregory Maguire so we could have Glinda and Elphaba GET TOGETHER ALREADY!
Have you always wanted to write or did it come to you "later in life"?
I’ve been writing since I could hold a crayon. We were pretty poor growing up and we didn’t have a lot of expensive toys. But we had a lot of imagination. My mom encouraged us to make big stories with little toys. She’s really the best.
Raised by witches and dragons in the northern wilds, GIE writes angsty urban fantasy YA romance--where girls who are mortal enemies kick butt, take names, and fall in love against all odds.
She enjoys long hikes in the woods (where better to find the fair folk?), believing in fairies (in fact, she's clapping right now), dancing with dark elves (always wear your best shoes), being a self-rescuing princess (hello, black belt!), and writing diverse books about teenage girls finding love, romance, and their own inner power.
She might be planning high tea at the Fae Court right now.
GIE is multi-published, and in her role as an editor has helped hundreds of authors make their dream of being published a reality.
