Sarah Pennington has been writing stories since before she actually knew how to write, and she has no intention of stopping anytime soon. She is perpetually in the middle of writing at least one or two novels, most of which are in the fantasy and fairy tale retelling genres. Sarah’s first published work, Blood in the Snow, received a perfect score and Special Unicorn status in Rooglewood Press’s Five Poisoned Apples contest. When she isn’t writing, she enjoys knitting, photography, and trying to conquer her massive to-be-read list.
Sarah can be found online at sarahpenningtonauthor.com. She also blogs at Light and Shadows (tpssaralightshadows.wordpress.com) and Dreams and Dragons (dreams-dragons.blogspot.com).

Hello, everyone! This is a bit late due to technical difficulties on one end, but I'm joining up with the blog tour for Rothana, Sarah Delena White's latest release! Rothana is the sequel to Halayda, which I read this past summer and quite enjoyed. Today, I have an interview with Sarah . . . but first, a little bit about the book and author.

I'm rereading this on a whim, and, well, I'm honestly surprised by how good it is? I can barely get through some of my other favorites from my preteen years, but this one — even knowing the whole plotline, there were times I couldn't put it down. The ...more

Skyward is a good book, but not Sanderson's best. Honestly, if it was any author other than Sanderson, I'd have loved it, but because it's Sanderson, I have higher expectations.

Alas, we come to the end of the "Five ____ _____" collections. This was the last contest Anne Elisabeth will run, and the last collection she'll release. But at least, if it must end, it ends well.

So, in all fairness: this book gave me exactly what it promised, which was a genderbent retelling of Sleeping Beauty featuring a proud-and-intelligent prince, a prophecied princess, and a powerful theme of sacrifice and trust. And the story itself? E ...more

“I listened long to your story,
Listened but could not hear.
When you chose to walk that path so overgrown,
I remained alone with my fear.

Cold silence covers the distance,
Stretches from shore to shore.
I follow in my mind your far-off journeying,
But I will walk that path no more.”
Anne Elisabeth Stengl, Heartless

Anne Elisabeth Stengl
“I'll never tell you to stop loving. You see, I believe in hopeless love. Oh yes. I believe in it with all my heart, though you may discount the heart of an old nanny like me. For real love brings pain. Real love means sacrifices and hurts and all the thousand shocks of life. But it also means beauty, true beauty.”
Anne Elisabeth Stengl, Moonblood

Anne Elisabeth Stengl
“Were the world a just place and given into Poet Eanrin's hands to dictate, he would have written things as they ought to be. Lionheart would not have bowed like some wooden puppet and left without another word. He would have acted like a man, taken the silver-eyed queen into his arms, and kissed her! He would have told her all the things in his heart that he did not fully understand yet, because, honestly, who ever understands those things anyway?

But some stories refuse to play themselves out the way poets think they ought.”
Anne Elisabeth Stengl

Anne Elisabeth Stengl
“Her eyes pleaded with him to understand, to try. Under that gaze, Eanrin had no option but to sit and stare at the scribbles in the dust, stare with all the intensity a cat can muster. His pupils dilated until the golden irises were like rings of eclipsed sunfire. Imraldera watched him, chewing her bottom lip and waiting.
At last the cat lashed his tail and raised his whiskered face to her. "I'm sorry, my girl. It looks to me like the Greater Stick Bug pursues the Lesser Stick Bug over the back of a giant alligator. Can't make a thing of it otherwise.”
Anne Elisabeth Stengl, Starflower

Anne Elisabeth Stengl
“One conversation! One simple, honest, true conversation, and all your questions would be answered, all your problems solved! Really, man, is it that difficult? Then you'd be free to fall into each other's arms and live your Happily Ever After. Why make it so complicated?"
--Eanrin”
