Fifteen-year-old Author Debuts with New Paranormal Romance Fiction, FEATHERFALL
Young Lauren Cruddas has read and become fascinated with a lot of paranormal romance books. However, she discovered that in many of the books she read, she found some parts that "just weren't quite right." She also thought that there were some parts missing or the ending just was not what she wanted. In her quest to find books that suited her taste, she soon developed a passion to entertain people and share with them the enjoyment she found in such books. Now, she debuts with her own romance fiction: "FeatherFall."
"I'm 15 years old and wrote this book during my first year of GCSEs. It took just over 10 months with gaps from stress but it was all I wanted to do. I spent many nights writing and rewriting chapters. It was all I could think of most nights," shares Cruddas. "I was so proud when I finished it. It's my greatest accomplishment."
The story follows the lives of three characters who are so intimately connected and who shape the entire story. Violet is the girl whose story this is. It is her emotions and thoughts that Cruddas tries to make the readers feel. Petallia is the person that Violet once was. It was her who gave Violet her crazy life. Finally, there is Gabriel, Violet's soul mate. He suffered much without Violet but tries to help her come to terms with who she is.
The book leads readers into the mind of one confused teenage girl. Violet is weird, geeky and has a strangely fascinating "gift." Her eyes change colour. As Violet learns more about her gift and her life, she faces more challenges than she ever expected. Though set in modern-day U.S.A., her story revolves around Cruddas' own creative adaptation of a biblical story that involves angels.
