Deva Fagan is here today! Deva is celebrating the release of her novel: Fortune’s Folly.
About Fortune’s Folly
Ever since her mother died and her father lost his shoemaking skills, Fortunata has survived by telling fake fortunes. But when she's tricked into telling a grand fortune for a prince, she is faced with the impossible task of fulfilling her wild prophecy-or her father will be put to death. Now Fortunata has to help Prince Leonato secure a magic sword, vanquish a wicked witch, discover a long-lost golden shoe, and rescue the princess who fits it. If only she hadn't fallen in love with the prince herself. . . .

On to the Interview, and my three standard questions:
Me: Without giving away too many spoilers, what is your favorite part of the novel/what was the part you had the most fun writing?
Deva: I had a lot of fun describing the horribly ugly shoes my main character's father creates after he's lost his talent, with all their weird tassels and curling toes and mis-matched colors.
Me: (lol) That sounds pretty wild! What kind of writing project are you currently working on? Or, if you aren't working on anything new, is there a different demographic/genre you wouldn't mind tackling in the future?
Deva: I'm currently working on the first draft of a science fiction novel involving ancient aliens, spaceships, circuses, and exploding chocolate.
Me: Wow! That sounds both complicated and fascinating! You have an incredible imagination! And finally: who is your writing hero and why?
Deva: I have many, but one of them is definitely Lloyd Alexander, who I admire both for his magical, engaging, adventure-filled novels and for the humility, humor and kindness that comes through in his interviews and essays.
Me: Awesome! Readers, you can visit Deva at her home on the web: http://www.devafagan.com
