Mini-Interview with Maria V. Snyder plus extras!

Hello everyone! :)

Maria's answered some questions about her new novel A Touch of Power!

1.) What was your inspiration for writing A Touch Of Power?

I had this vague idea about a healer or an apprentice healer during an epidemic. She was either going to be sought after for her powers – like everyone wanting her, or be hunted. I wasn’t sure. Then one night my daughter couldn’t sleep and she wanted me to tell her a story. She knew all my other books, so I started telling her about this healer. And every night, she’d ask, “What’s next?” That’s why Touch of Power is dedicated to my daughter.

2.) If you could have any of the powers, which one would it be and why?

Healing. I’ve seen so many friends and family members suffer with various health problems, that I wish I could just…heal them. All the money in the world is nothing compared to good health. Also as a mother – healing would be wonderful. I hate to see my kids sick or hurt.

3.) Do you see any of yourself in Avry?

A little bit. I have that nurturing instinct and now that my kids are older, I baby the cat J And we both are independent. I have no qualms in travelling by myself to foreign cities and unfamiliar places.

4.) Who's your favourite guy and why?

Belen. He's the protective Poppa Bear – concerned for his cubs and can tear someone's arms off when protecting them.
