For those of you who have not yet read The Angel Series by author Allana Lowe, I urge you to give it a try. Like Angels & Shadows, there is a struggle between good and evil, a forbidden romance, and of course Angels! I very much enjoyed the suspense and struggles of the characters in this trilogy. I recently sent Ms. Lowe some questions about not only her books, but what the writing experience is like for her. Please enjoy her responses, which I've posted below and don't forget to leave comments to let us know what you thought of the interview!
Allana, where did the idea for this book series come from?
Honestly i was sitting by the water one day and my eyes were closed and it came to me as if it were a dream.
Did you know when you started writing it that it would be a series, or did that happen as you wrote?
I honestly thought it would just be one novel. When i finished the first one i just knew that i couldn't stop there.
When you are writing, what helps you find your muse: do you listen to music, is there a certain movie or person that inspires you, or is it something all together different?
I actually have a playlist on my ipod specifically for when i am writing which consists of both upbeat and tragic instrumentals.
What character in this series do you relate to the most and why?
That would have to be Becca. I can relate with her on so many levels. Feeling alone yet people are always there for her and her heart breaking over and over again.
Which character is your favorite?
I love all of my characters its really hard to choose a favorite but if i had to i would definitely go with Rowan. Every girl can only dream of finding her own Rowan to rescue her.
Who is you favorite author and/or authors?
I absolutely love Stephenie Meyer. Her writing is dark yet light enough for any age group. I also like Nicholas Sparks. His way of putting romanticism in with tragedy has always been an inspiration to me.
Are you writing more books for us to read?
Absolutely. I am currently working on three different projects.
When I was reading the books, I enjoyed the internal battle of the third book. It was a bit different than the first two in that respect. What made you decide to take that direction with the third book?
I didn't even realize i was doing it until i wrote it. I got lost in my music and that is what came of it.
What is one piece of advice that you would give to any aspiring authors?
Never give up. Never let anyone hold you back. Only you hold the power to make your dreams come true.
If you were an angel, what power would you have and what color wings would you have?
This has got to be the hardest yet most asked question. I would definitely want rainbow colored wings. Ive always been different. I wouldn't want to be like everyone else. My power is a bit tricky. There are so many choices but due to my big heart I believe I would choose the power to heal.
