Following find an interview with author Elizabeth R. Jensen.
What is the name of the book and when was it published?
The Hawk’s Flight: Book Two of the Three Brothers Trilogy, Dec 17, 2022
What’s the book’s first line?
“Fourteen-year old Borus Wolfensberger is yawning and struggling to stay awake, swaying slightly in the saddle.”
What’s the book about? Give us the “pitch”.
The three young Wolfensberger brothers are continuing their journey to become knights. As they find themselves on separate paths, they must hone their unique skills, sword mastery, archery, and magic. Just when the war against Ruschmann Blackwell is over, Borus, Kass, and Jules find themselves reunited again on a secret mission. When the ship wrecks the brothers end up lost on an unknown island. To return home they must defeat the dragon sorcerer, Waha. From start to finish the story is full of medieval inspired action, adventure, and sorcery.
What inspired you to write the book? A particular person? An event?
I have three boys and watching their relationships and interactions with each other made me wonder, what if I wrote a book with three brothers as main characters? Medieval knights have always been a passion of mine, so it seemed only natural that my first book series is focused on medieval knights.
What’s the main reason someone should really read this book?
If you love medieval knights, fantasy, and adventure then this is a book that is filled with all three, mixed in with characters who are finding their place in the world.
What’s the most distinctive thing about the main character? Who-real or fictional-would you say the character reminds you of?
The most distinctive thing about my three main characters is their unwavering loyalty to their family and close friends.
When did you first decide to become an author?
One of my good friends told me about the November Writing Month Challenge and I decided to give it a whirl. A year later I had a complete book and I re-read it and was on the edge of my seat wondering what happened next. At that point I decided maybe I should see what other people think of the book.
Is this the first book you’ve written?
This is the second book I’ve written. The first one is The Wolf’s Den: Book One of the Three Brothers Trilogy.
What do you do for work when you’re not writing?
I breed Arabian horses and German Riding Ponies and I have almost all of the horses at home.
How much time do you generally spend on your writing?
As much time as I can, but some days being a mom and horse breeder use up my whole day.
What’s the best and the hardest part of being an indie?
The best part is that people I don’t know are reading my books and loving them. I am getting amazing compliments that I was never expecting when I began this journey. The hardest part is getting myself out there.
Would you go traditional if a publisher came calling? If so, why?
I would go hybrid. I don’t want to give up my rights to The Three Brothers Trilogy or other related books. But I have many more ideas just waiting to get typed.
