Tell us a bit about The Healing Wars.
The Healing Wars is my teen fantasy trilogy (The Healing Wars: Book I: The Shifter, The Healing Wars: Book II: Blue Fire, and the upcoming The Healing Wars: Book III: Darkfall) that follows a war orphan named Nya, who has the unique ability to heal by shifting pain from person to person. When her younger sister disappears, this ability turns out to be the only weapon she has to save her. I had a lot of fun with it, because Nya faces some painful morally gray areas where there is no clear cut right or wrong. Her ability hurts as well as helps, and she has to decide how far she’s willing to go to save her sister. It’s all about choices and what we’re willing to do for those we love. Mixed up with a rollicking fantasy adventure of course. And a very cool magic system based on healing and pain.
