We're launching the Book Tour for HEIR OF ELRIYON by K. Michele Moseley!

On Tour with Prism Book Tours

Author Interview

What inspired you to write Heir of Elriyon?

My husband and I were with a friend, and we all decided on a challenge to create a unique dragon mythology. I think I combined what I remembered of Jeremy Thatcher Dragon Hatcher with the Old Testament. Aenya and the rest of them just kind of dropped in after that. And the very final scene was the first one I wrote.

What do you love the most about this story?

The friendship with Aenya and Lewin. I see it as the old-married-couple version of friendship. They know they’re going to be together forever, no matter what arguments or disagreements come up. There’s a love there that can’t be broken. It was really important to me though to keep them platonic and avoid any kind love-triangle situation. It’s a simple but deep relationship.

What challenged you about writing it?

The language and architecture were massive hurdles to get over. I spent months, stuck, trying to figure out how the Cashlan was laid out. The language was tough too, because I wanted to pay homage to the influences of Irish-Gaelic and Latin without being too literal, and I had wicked imposter-syndrome when it came to just making words up. In the end, I love what turned out, and I’m quite proud of it.

Which character do you most relate to and why?

That’s a tough one, because they all feel like different versions or moods of myself. I probably have to go with Aenya though, because her struggle to do what she knows is right−even if she knows she’s going to do it eventually−was deeply personal and inspired by my own experiences.

What do you hope readers will take with them after they’ve read it?

I’d love for people to consider no longer underestimating themselves or overestimating a situation. You’re stronger than you think. And you aren’t alone in what you have to do.

What do you enjoy doing when you're not writing?

Making old things new is a big theme for me. If I had endless funds and no obligations, I’d be purchasing and restoring typewriters and old furniture all day—with an audiobook going in the background, of course.

Aenya's destiny could cost her freedom.

After years of compulsory training to become an elite warrior, sixteen-year-old Aenya plans to run away with her friend Lewin. However, her plans crumble when she is chosen to be Elriyon’s new figurehead and wife to the future ruler, Rieve.

But Aenya has a secret: she is a Darcara—one chosen by elusive dragon-like beings, the Dargun, to receive the wisdom that once governed her people.

When the current rulers decide to stop a growing rebellion by killing the remaining Dargun, Aenya flees to Elriyon’s mysterious interior. Still, the Dargun’s words burn into her mind. They have a new task for her: return to her people and speak the truth, no matter the cost.

With escape close at hand, Aenya must choose between a dangerous calling or finally being free.

About the Author

K. Michele Moseley found her love for storytelling on a Tuesday at 10 a.m. in the third grade. Though she struggled with dyslexia, her passion for stories allowed her to overcome the challenges that came with telling them. While she writes in many genres, what she likes best is creating stories for young adults that place real-life obstacles into fantastic worlds. When not inventing new realms, she spends her time chasing after her two sons and playing "Netflix Roulette" with her husband.
