Found in the forest when she was young, Laura Thalassa was raised by fairies, kidnapped by werewolves, and given over to vampires as repayment for a hundred year debt. She’s been brought back to life twice, and, with a single kiss, she woke her true love from eternal sleep. She now lives happily ever after with her undead prince in a castle in the woods.

… or something like that anyway.

When not writing, Laura can be found scarfing down guacamole, hoarding chocolate for the apocalypse, or curled up on the couch with a good book.

I do intentionally try to leave the heroine's physical appearance as simple as possible. Partly, I want all readers to be able to see themselves as the main character (I could go into the whole diversity discussion and how certain minorities feel like outsiders because they don't see themselves in literature, but that's a long discussion, and best for another time)! I also think that focusing on a character's features (specifically a woman's) places more importance on her looks than her heart and head. And here in the land of steamy literature, one must leave the objectifying to the male love interests' windswept hair and rock hard abs. 😂 (Watch out for that double-standard!)

And now that I've answered your question, I realize I really have no basis to act as some sort of social right fighter ... I write morally gray enemies-to-lovers romances ... 😂 Anyway, that's the best I got! Thanks for reading!(less)
Laura Thalassa If all goes as planned, then Famine should release in spring 2020!

Memories by Lang Leav
“Stardust

If you came to me with a face I have not seen, with a voice I have never heard, I would still know you. Even if centuries separated us, I would still feel you. Somewhere between the sand and the stardust, through every collapse and creation, there is a pulse that echoes of you and I.


When we leave this world, we give up all our possessions and our memories. Love is the only thing we take with us. It is all we carry from one life to the next.”

“I am one of billions. I am stardust gathered fleetingly into form. I will be ungathered. The stardust will go on to be other things someday and I will be free.”
Laini Taylor, Days of Blood & Starlight

“In Shoshone, there's a saying. It's a long one, and it doesn't have an English equivalent, so bear with me.

Sutummu tukummuinna. It means, I don't speak your language, and you don't speak mine. But I still understand you. I don't need to walk in your footsteps if I can see the footprints you left behind.”
Rose Christo, Why the Star Stands Still

“Maybe they would look at each other and feel some odd yearning, but neither of them would know why. They would want to stop, but they would be embarrassed, and neither would know what to say. They would go their separate ways. Who knew? Maybe that happened every day to people who'd once loved each other.”
Ann Brashares, My Name Is Memory

“I think it is entirely possible to miss someone you never knew. You just don’t understand what that feeling is until you find them.”

Parvati Patil Hello, Mrs. Thalassa:
One small note on how right you are in using "De Silva" instead of "Da Silva" for the MC of Famine:

https://forebears.io/surnames?q=de+silva
According to the map of the distribution map (click on the surname De Silva ) there's 2482 people whose surname is The Silva in England, 1018 in US 140 in Venezuela 64 in Argentina and most shockingly there's 7287 De Silva in Brazil. Please distrust reviewers in Goodreads. I can distinguish honest negative criticism from people trying to sabotage books with ease because I've been a Goodreads member for years now. Not everyone who claims to be a reviewer from Brazil will be indeed a reviewer from Brazil and many are ready to be way too judgemental with successful new adult writers.

Of course, just to be safe, Da Silva would be a safer option as it's more common, but De Silva is correct if you want to proceed with that. I personally like De Silva better because it has nicer ring to it.

Good luck with your book! I'm your biggest fan and can't wait.

Umaiya ❄️Ramblings of a Scattered Mind❄️ I'll be honest, I didn't think you'd accept :p Thank you so much! :D

I've only read one of your books but I loved it! The only reason I haven't read The Bargainer series is cause it isn't finished and I am terrible at waiting. Instead, I hope to start the Fallen World series soon.

What I'm trying to say is, you're awesome and thank you so much for writing these amazing books. ^_^

Can't wait to talk books with you!
