I’m hosting author Lisa Cresswell on my blog today. She’s the author of young adult fantasy series, the Storyteller series. I’ll leave the stage to her now!
Meet the Characters of Storyteller
With three books in the Storyteller series, there a lot of characters, as you can imagine. Today, I thought I’d introduce you to the four main heroes of our story, who travel far across the True World in search of the Four Portal keepers in Books II and III.
On Lily’s thirteenth birthday, her grandmother gives her a special amulet and tells her she’s really a fairy, hidden in this world to protect her from dark forces in the True World. Lily wants to believe her, but it sounds pretty crazy, you have to admit. Still, Lily knows she’s not normal. Weird things have been happening more and more since she found the Book of Eleanor. All Lily’s really ever wanted was to find her mother, who’s been missing since Lily was a baby. Lily is a headstrong, smart leading young lady, willing to go to the ends of the world, any world, to save the ones she loves.
I don’t know about you, but I’d be tickled pink to find out my best friend is an elf sent to protect me. Peter is Lily’s guardian, born under the same star she was, but keeping precocious Lily out of trouble is a full time job. Peter does the best he can, teaching her the magic she needs, but the head strong girl doesn’t always listen to his sensible advice.
I love this girl. Heather is completely, 100% human, and like any human, she’s far from perfect. She’s mean to Lily, even downright bossy, but her eyes are opened through the course of the story and a wonderful transformation takes place in her.
Jude the Elf
Jude is another favorite of mine. He first appears in the second book and joins the others on their quest. He has the purest, most generous heart. Unfortunately for him, not everyone realizes it. Heather, of all people, is his biggest champion.
There are so many more intriguing characters in the Storyteller Series. I hope you’ll join Lily and her friends on their quest so you can meet them all! Find out more on my website www.lisatcresswell.com ~
Lisa, like most writers, began scribbling silly notes, stories, and poems at a very young age. Born in North Carolina, the South proved fertile ground to her imagination with its beautiful white sand beaches and red earth. In fifth grade, she wrote, directed and starred in a play “The Queen of the Nile” at school, despite the fact that she is decidedly un-Egyptian looking. Perhaps that’s why she went on to become a real life archaeologist?
Unexpectedly transplanted to Idaho as a teenager, Lisa learned to love the desert and the wide open skies out West. This is where her interest in cultures, both ancient and living, really took root, and she became a Great Basin archaeologist. However, the itch to write never did leave for long. Her first books became the middle grade fantasy trilogy, The Storyteller Series. Her first traditionally published work, Hush Puppy, is coming soon from Featherweight Press.
Lisa still lives in Idaho with her family and a menagerie of furry critters that includes way too many llamas!
