Hey, everyone! Today I’m interviewing Homer, one of the characters from YA fantasy “Telemachus and Homer”. Welcome to my blog, Homer, and I hope you enjoy your stay here.

1) Tell us about yourself .
My name is Homer.   I love meeting people and learning about their travels.  I also love science.  Growing up, my peers seemed to prejudge me as the blind girl or the know-it-all and at times, I was lonely.  I studied a lot both because I was interested in learning new things, and I did not have many friends.

2)   What is your greatest skill?
I am good listener.

3)   What is surprising about you?
I am a very good athlete.

4)   What is the most important things that Telemachus learns in Telemachus and Homer?
A hero is not someone without fear, it is someone who acts despite his or her fear.

5)    What else can you tell us about Hera’s Garden?
Within Hera’s Garden is a secret collection of adventures of the world’s greatest female heroes.   I believe that Hera will soon release them and more details about her garden to the world.

About the Book

21233098Title: Telemachus and Homer

Author: Scott Locke

Genre: YA Fantasy

For every boy who grew up in his father’s shadow and every girl who has been underestimated, there comes a time to look within themselves to see if they have the strength to meet the challenges of the lives.  For Telemachus this time arrives soon after Odysseus returns from his twenty year absence, when Telemachus comes to appreciate that his own life needs to be about more than waiting for his father to guide him.  On the verge of embarking on an adventure, he learns that his community has been threatened and realizes that he does not know how to help.  Swallowing his pride, he recognizes that Homer, a young blind woman is a necessary ally.  Homer, like Telemachus has something to prove, for although she is respected for her knowledge, she feels unfairly defined by her community.  Together, as the people of Ithaca’s last hope, they begin their quest.
