Synopsis: Sara’s pretty sure her life is perfect.
Not only are she and Micah finally married, her father, who’d been missing since the Magic Wars, has been found. Actually, he just strode up to the manor’s front door, but whatever. Sara knows better than to look a gift horse in the mouth.
But Baudoin Corbeau isn’t content to return to family life. He’s decided that he will be the force of change in the Mundane world, and lead the Elemental resistance to victory with his children at his side. What’s worse, Baudoin doesn’t approve of Sara’s marriage, and makes every attempt to separate her from Micah.
After a visit to the Mundane realm leaves Sara, Max and Sadie imprisoned by the Peacekeepers, Sara’s doubts creep to the surface. Is her father right? Does she belong in the Mundane realm, not the Otherworld? Is Micah really the right man—make that elf—for her?
Was marrying him a mistake?

Today we welcome Jennifer for an interview! Take it away!
How do you come up with themes for your stories?
I always start with a character name. For this series, I wanted a character that had some form of “raven” in their name. After many permutations, I ended up with Sara Corbeau (corbeau is a French surname that means raven). At the time I was also making a lot of copper jewelry, and thought it would be great if my raven girl had something to do with copper, so Sara became the titular copper girl.
What was the hardest thing about writing a book?
Knowing when it has been edited, beta read, and polished enough.
Where do you write?
I usually write in my home office, but I’ve been seen at the local Panera a time or two.
What kinds of things do you like to do outside of writing?
I like reading, rainy nights, long walks on the beach… Wait, that’s not what you meant. When I’m not writing I’m beating back the evil possessed bittersweet vines in my yard (some call it gardening; I call it Hell), painting, making jewelry or some other crafty thing, and going on adventures with my twins.
What is your favorite book? Favorite author?
My favorite book is The Hero and the Crown by Robin McKinley, but my favorite author is Wendy Pini, creator of ElfQuest.
Do you have an author that inspired/inspires you to write?
Oh, yes! The aforementioned Wendy Pini and Robin McKinley, along with Madeline L’Engle, Neil Gaiman, Judy Bloom, and J.R.R. Tolkien.
