Things have different meaning in different countries.

 A few months ago, friend of mine’s who happens to be British whom I asked to beta read the story burst out laughing when he saw the title, “The FairyTree Troll.”

 Ok, I’m American and in the USA a FairyTree Troll is a mystical immortal being. Much like the king of the fairies. I guess our ancestors struck to the older, ancient definition. Here in the US it doesn’t mean an annoying person who no one can get along with as my British friend informed me. That’s what we call a plain ol’ troll  not a FairyTree Troll.

According my friend everyone wants to know whom am I calling a troll. LOL! As I said before. I’m not calling anyone a troll. I’m referring to the son of Lugh or Lughiel whom he made from a tree. That’s the version of the ancient story I knowfairy-tree troll eBook cover-resized-use-8-11-17.

He kids around a lot but liked the story. I told him for the “The Return of the Fairy Tree Troll” I am snapping a picture and putting his face on the cover. LOL!

He said, “That’s fine. The son of Lugh was very handsome. That’s how he allured so many to him.”

I asked, “I thought you didn’t know the story?”

He said, “Yes, I know the story quite well. It’s an old story in England but it still doesn’t stop the Brits from calling annoying pestilence people Fairy Tree Trolls.

I pursed my lips as I write my characters does and rolled my eyes at him and said make yourself available for the next book.

She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.
