“If you like reading about the fae, other realms and watching two bada** chicks fight then you will love this series! – The Avid Reader
It’s good to be queen. Except when it’s a total disaster.
Syl Skye, newly crowned Queen of Fair Faerie, would be psyched to be the ruler of her Summer realm, except for two things.
First, her girlfriend Rouen Rivoche became Queen of Dark Faerie, the Winter realm. That would be great except the Winter realm’s always been at war with Summer. By tradition, that makes Rouen Syl’s mortal enemy. That said, love can break past old hatred, right? Especially with a new foe about to attack them both.
Which brings us to Syl’s second problem. Rouen’s under a dark spell and doesn’t remember Syl, their lives, their love. Worse, if Syl doesn’t break the spell by the next new moon, Rouen will forget her forever.
“Fast paced, full of action, never a moment of bore! Strongly recommended!” – Annarella, Goodreads
To defeat their foe, it’ll take two soul-bound queens whose hearts and minds act as one. Trouble is, no one has ever broken the dark spell Rouen suffers from.
Good thing Syl isn’t the type of queen who gives up easily.

1. Did you always know you wanted to be a writer or did you want to be something else?
2. How long does it take you to write a book from start to finish?
I’ve streamlined my process, so I can write anything under 75K in about 4 months
3. How do you come up with themes for your stories?
The themes find me because, so often, we write TOWARD meaning not FROM meaning.
4. Do you have a schedule of when you write?
I used to be a night owl, and I’d write until 2 or 3 am, but my household schedule changed. So, now I’m up around 6 am. I write every morning until about 11am.
5. How are you able to balance other aspects of your life with your writing?.
It’s all about the discipline and compartmentalizing. When it’s time to write, it’s time to write. I try my best to focus only on the writing and not get distracted. The desktop I write on doesn’t connect to the internet, so that really helps. J
6. What elements do you think make a great story line?
A balance of internal and external conflict, a hero who grows/develops, good pacing with a variety of scenes that all move the plot forward, and a healthy dose of angst.
7. What was the hardest thing about writing a book?
Knowing when you’re done with it. You can always find something to revise or tweak or improve. Balancing writing a good book with being mindful of time constraints like deadlines is essential.
8. How many books have you written so far? Do you have a favorite?
Right now, there are 6 books available in the CIRCUIT FAE series: MORIBUND, DERAILED, OUROBOROS, DETHRONED, INIMICAL, AND REKINDLED. I’m in the middle of writing NEMESIS, and EIDOLON is close behind.
My favorite has to be DETHRONED because it’s the book where I went the most in-depth with the dark Fae world, Rouen’s past, the dark origins of the Moribund circuitry that allows the Fae to leverage the killing magic in technology.
9. What kinds of things do you like to do outside of writing?
I love to read and play tabletop games. I run an epic fantasy game for a group of friends, and I’m currently playing in a few too. I make my own mead. I enjoy karate, running, hiking, and traveling.
10. What kinds of advice would you give to someone who wants to start writing?
Write, write, and keep writing. Turn off that inner voice that tells you you’re not good enough. It’s lying. Your first draft will suck. Everyone’s does. You will get rejected. Everyone does. It’s not personal. Say “thank you for your time” and move on. Keep writing. Learn to write everywhere. De-ritualize the act of writing—you don’t need a special pen or a special desk or even a special time to write. Read in your genre. Be kind to others in the community. Ripping apart other people’s writing is more of a reflection on you as a negative person than it is on their writing.
11.What is your favorite book? favorite author? Do you have an author that inspired/inspires you to write?
Oh, gosh! It’s so hard to pick a favorite book. I enjoy reading Sarah Waters. Fingersmith is a great book. You will literally finish it and wish you wrote it. I also like Leigh Bardugo’s Six of Crows.
12. Do you have any go to people when writing a book that help you with your story lines as well as editing, beta reading and such?
I have a critique group. We meet once a month to exchange critiques, talk shop, and hang out.
17. Are you working on anything now?
I’m on the second draft of NEMESIS. I’m also sketching out a new series, TBA. Stay tuned!

20. If you could travel anywhere in the world to visit a place so you could use it as a background for a book, where would it be?
Author Bio:She enjoys long hikes in the woods (where better to find the fair folk?), believing in fairies (in fact, she’s clapping right now), dancing with dark elves (always wear your best shoes), being a self-rescuing princess (hello, black belt!), and writing diverse books about teenage girls finding love, romance, and their own inner power.
Raised by witches and dragons in the northern wilds, GIE writes angsty urban fantasy YA romance–where girls who are mortal enemies kick butt, take names, and fall in love against all odds.
She might be planning high tea at the Fae Court right now.
GIE is multi-published, and in her role as an editor has helped hundreds of authors make their dream of being published a reality.
