Hey readers! Please welcome Mary Waibel, author of Quest of the Hart, her newly released young adult novel! Today she’s interviewing Maeryn and Deirdre! Check it out!
Me: Oh, look! I’ve managed to find Ladies Maeryn and Deirdre, Princess Arabella’s close friends, here in the library. Excuse me, ladies, but would you care to share a bit about the princess?
Maeryn: Princess Arabella? Certainly. She’s beautiful, talented.
Deirdre: Oh, y-yes. (She bobs her head.) Tell about the tournament.
Me: Oh, a tournament? Did she give her favor to the winning knight?
M: (Snorts) No, the princess faced off against the best of the realm, defeating knights with swords and bow. If only her father would have allowed her to do hand-to-hand combat, she would have been champion. Instead, Prince Devlin was.
D: Hmm. Pr-Prince D-Devlin. (Her face takes on a dreamy look.)
M: I tell you, King Gareth should reconsider his heir. Breniera would do much better with Arabella ruling.
D: I d-don’t know, M-Maeryn. She’s so bl-blood thirsty. We’d pr-probably be at w-war all the t-time.
M: True, she can be quite determined to get her way. Sometimes I wonder why I spend time with her. I mean, I know we’re the only noble girls close to her age, but she can be quite mean when she wants to. Of course, without her, we’d be quite lonely.
D: Y-Yes, we w-would. (She looks outside and gasps.) Oh, m-my! W-we’re l-late!
M: (Jumps to her feet and grabs hold of her sister.) Sorry, but we have to leave. The princess is expecting us to help with her latest plans to take the throne from her brother. This one’s a special spell.
Me: Wait! I don’t want you to be late, but what kind of spell are you talking about?
M: I can’t say, really. Don’t want to spoil it. I’m sure you’ll hear all about it soon! (They hurry from the room.)
Me: I guess we’ll just have to read Quest of the Hart to see what that was all about!
Mary lives with her husband, son and two cats. When she isn’t twisting fairytales, she enjoys reading, playing games, watching hockey, and camping.
