About the Author
Ciara wrote her first “under the bed” book at twenty. Another fifteen years passed before she bravely attempted another, but she’s been happily writing ever since. A true Renaissance woman, when she’s not penning lively stories, she’s reading, sewing, painting, camping, sailing or dancing. A recent empty nester, she and her soul mate currently live on a modest plot of land surrounded by trees, a pond, an array of wildlife and seven barn kitties.
Interview with Ciara Gold
Why did you write this book?
The Rose Hunter is actually a sequel to The Keeper of Moon Haven. I’ve always had an active imagination. As an art teacher, I felt stifled with no studio in which to create my own art so I decided to try writing. I love it. I love creating fantastical worlds with interesting characters and thus The Keeper of Moon Haven was born and in grand order, The Rose Hunter.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I love historical western romances. They are my “comfort” read. I figure it’s because I can relate to a lot of scenes. I camped a lot when I was young and always thought I’d marry a rancher but alas, I married my own true love instead.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I have many favorites, but Benjamin Colter from Joan Johnston’s Colter’s Wife has always held a special place in my heart. I can’t pinpoint why except maybe he reminds me a lot of my own husband; he’s honest, caring, rough around the edges and knows his mind.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
I tend to work on more than one project at a time. Currently, I’ve started another sequel to The Rose Hunter, but I’m also working on two historical western romances. I will probably have one of the westerns done before the sequel to The Rose Hunter.
Please tell us about your latest book.
Lucian Willshire is plagued by thoughts of a fey world and the disappearance of his aunt some nineteen years past, but when his friend drags him back to Hamingjur Castle, he stumbles into Alfheim Haven once more where mystical beings become more than a distant memory.
Lyerra Ahdia is baffled by the sudden emotional changes she’s experiencing until she discovers she’s the only witch to suffer “the change” since her mother stole the Rose, a special talisman with the power to perpetuate life among those in her coven. Tasked with finding and bringing the Rose home, she begs Lucian’s help in navigating the human realm. Against his better judgement, he agrees.
Though neither set out to find anything except the Rose, fate has other plans. Will love be more elusive than hunting the Rose?
