Annie Douglass Lima considers herself fortunate to have traveled in twenty different countries and lived in four of them. A fifth-grade teacher in her “other” life, she loves reading to her students and sparking their imaginations. Her books include science fiction, fantasy, YA action and adventure novels, a puppet script, anthologies of her students’ poetry, Bible verse coloring and activity books, and now a cookbook. When she isn’t teaching or writing, Annie can often be found sipping spiced chai or pomegranate green tea in exotic locations, some of which exist in this world.

I'm working on King of Malorn right now. It takes place five years after the original trilogy, and brings back Jaymin, Erik, Korram, and a new main character, Korram's sister Kalendria. Anya shows up in a smaller role, and Dannel and a few other old friends will be there too. I hope to have it ready for publication by the end of 2015, but my day job (teaching 5th grade) has been taking more of my mental energy than usual this year, so it's possible it won't be done till next spring.

In the meantime, do you know about Annals of Alasia: the Collected Interviews? It's a little companion book that is available for free on Amazon and Goodreads. It might be a fun way to get to know some of the characters better.

Thanks for asking! I'm so glad you're enjoying the series!(less)

It's 6:00 a.m., and I'm sitting by a little pavilion on the island's east coast to watch the sunrise. There are clouds over the horizon, but a golden glow is flaming between them. A dozen or so other people have shown up in the last twenty minutes to this site ad Read more of this blog post »

In the Enemy's Service (Select)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: When the Malornian army invaded Alasia and Prince Jaymin was forced to flee for his life, what happened to those left behind? In the Enemy’s Service tells the story of ten-year-old Anya, imprisoned among other survivors and forced to work for the occupying troops. While pretending to follow orders and serve diligently in the palace, Anya discovers ingenious ways to spy on enemy officers and slip valuable information to the Alasian resistance. But as she helps to craft plans that may eventually free Alasia, Anya accidentally uncovers a disturbing reference to her own family. Her fears are strengthened when she is confronted by a mysterious Malornian who seems somehow to know the truth behind the role she has been playing. Holding her life in his hands with that knowledge, he claims to bear information implicating her father in the betrayal that led to the Invasion itself.
Prince of Alasia (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 14, 2012 05:05AM
Description: Prince Jaymin, heir to the throne of Alasia, barely escapes with his life when invaders from neighboring Malorn attack. Accompanied by his young bodyguard, Jaymin flees to a nearby town to live in hiding. There, surrounded by the enemy soldiers searching for him, his life depends on his ability to maintain his disguise. As the danger intensifies and the Malornians’ suspicions grow, Jaymin seeks desperately for a way to save his kingdom and himself. Then he stumbles upon a startling discovery that will challenge his assumptions and forever change his view of Malorn and the events that altered his life.
