New YA/Teen/Fantasy author, TR Moore Ede, was born and raised in a Christian family in Canada, and is the third of ten kids. In her early teenage years, she began to develop an interest and eventually a love for writing. What was meant to be a stand alone, then a duo turned into the Tearmann Chronicles. Most of her books, whether in the series or not, show her love of and interest in magical creatures, especially mermaids. In her free time, she enjoys drawing, a variety of crafts, greek mythology and mermaiding. In this interview, she talks about her latest book in the series, Humans that Aren’t, as well as the entire world of her Tearmann Chronicles.
FF: What is the inspiration behind the story in your book series, Tearmann Chronicles?
My inspiration for my series comes from many different places. First, from my love for magical creatures, and second, when I saw a superhero movie for the first time. I began drawing my own, both human and magical creatures, and taking them on adventures in my head. At some point, I decided to write one of the books and when it worked, I kept going.
FF: What were your goals writing Tearmann Chronicles?
In the beginning, I had no goals for my series. My siblings like reading it and I enjoyed writing it so it was a win-win. As I started to properly develop my series and realized I wanted to publish it, my hope began to be that I could show God in it through my characters’ struggles.
FF: Which character surprised you the most?
I can’t tell you that. Spoilers. 😉 To be honest, a lot of them. When I first started writing my series, the characters were bland and very similar. After writing and rewriting books my characters, even some of the background ones, seemed to decide who they were, causing more rewrites to update their character in previous books. To name one, Victoria was a bit of a surprise. Her character herself wasn’t but she kept popping up in a number of different people’s storylines, even if just for a little bit.
FF: How do you go about getting in the right mindset to write for your genre?
I have been blessed with being able to write somewhat easily. It likely was also attributed to the years of practice. If there are times I have problems writing, most of the time I just need to walk away and come back to it later.
FF: What do you want readers to take away after reading this novel?
There are a couple things I would like them to take away from this series. There are a number of storylines but the main one is that God is in control and can use any situation. Jesus said that in this world we would face troubles but to take hope because He has overcome the world.
FF: What can readers expect from the rest of your future Tearmann Chronicles books?
They can expect a lot of characters, some are magical creatures, others humans with powers from many different backgrounds. Around book six a superhero team pops up. Together they avoid the two evil gangs, fight crime and go through the different struggles life throws at them. All the while hearing about ‘him’ who is said to be coming. I am currently thinking that there could be as many as 20-30 books in the Tèarmann Chronicles. Stay tuned!
Humans that Aren’t Book Summary:
Both Irene and Eve wish to be reunited with their parents. Irene’s parents may be at the Slayer’s base, but Eve’s parents, a different planet.
Upon hearing that her parents could be close by, Irene is itching to leave straight away, regardless of the danger. Unfortunately, a preplanned trip stands between her and finding her parents. The only time she has between now and heading to the airport is only enough to see a newfound alien ship…
Even as a dragon, a dragon from the medieval period at that, Irene still finds the thought of aliens a bit far fetched. When she visits the site of the crash, she not only finds a damaged ship but a spot of blue blood.
Eve hadn’t meant to crash on Earth. She doesn’t even know how a course was set for it. When locals find her ship almost immediately, she’s forced to flee it. In the trees she sought safety in, she runs into a giant group of people that don’t seem surprised by her presence on Earth. Worse, it sounds like they were expecting her. But how is that possible?
