Friday Five: S.A. Edwards

Today’s Friday Five focus is S.A. Edwards, author of YA fantasy novels.

Sophie Edwards has worked in many fields and gained qualifications in Hairdressing, Childcare, Photography, and is now undertaking a BA(Hons) in Creative Writing. She lives in the UK with her husband and three homeschooled children, with the beginnings of a grassfed farmstead in the back garden. She also designs book covers on the side.

Her debut novel Mage: The Guardian’s Oath is available now.

Eighteen years trapped in a village is enough to drive anyone crazy, so when a way out appears in the wall, Clara leaps at the chance to leave. But her joy quickly diminishes, for outside the wall’s protection, the hunters seeking her life can sense her, and an ancient, sinister plot emerges – a plot that’s killed her six times, and now, only one chance remains. To save those she loves and gain her freedom, Clara must face the darkest magic and find the courage to do what she fears most.

S. A. Edwards1. Why do you write in YA?

The possibilities are endless. In the real world there are rules. In mine, they’re completely different. I find fantasy intriguing and the perfect opportunity to share the hidden magic out there with people in this world.

2. What literary character are you most like and why?

Belle, probably. Quiet, misunderstood in my young, a lover of books.

3. How much of your published writing is based on personal experiences?

Most of it, actually, only tweaked. A lot.

4. What are three things on your bucket list?

See more of the world.
Share my stories with as many people as possible.
Learn a language.

5. What do you want your readers to take away from your works?

If every reader who finishes my work feels satisfied and that it was worth it, if they want to read more, my job is done.
