Today I am interviewing Sarah Delena White as part of her Shadow Light Blog Tour! Let us find out how she handles the randomness of the random interview!
Sarah Delena White was raised by wolves in an alternate dimension. She writes eclectic speculative fiction that reworks mythology with a fine balance of poetry and snark. She's an experienced world traveler who loves to weave world folklore and ancient concepts into vibrant, original story worlds. She is the administrative manager for Uncommon Universes Press. When she's not writing, she can be found making elegant designer bead jewelry, traveling to festivals as a professional ballad singer, drinking tea, and seeking to create the perfect latte. She can be bribed with dark chocolate.

You have to trade places with one of your characters for a day. Which and why?
Either Zhenya from Windswept or Layla from Shadow Light. Zhenya has fun wind powers and pretty dresses and generally less pressure and fewer life-or-death situations than most of my characters. On the other hand, Layla gets to carry around the moon in her cloak and wear real stars in her hair and, well, there’s Aeric. Yeah, I’d probably go with Layla.
What weather is your writing? A dark and stormy night? A sunshiny day?
Probably one of those weird storms where there’s a raging thunderstorm on one side of the sky and a sparkly rainbow on the other.
What’s the most important lesson you ever learned from a cartoon?
That roadrunners will always outsmart you. Don’t pick fights with them. Doom will happen.
If your favorite historical era had an ice cream flavor made in its honor, what would it taste like?
Not sure if I have a favorite historical era, but I do like early-mid 1800s aesthetics and that makes me think of tea cakes with candied flowers on top, so let’s go with flower-flavored ice cream, like rose or violet. Flower-flavored things are awesome in general!
If you woke up tomorrow and realized you were now a dragon, what would you do first?
That depends – can I still shift into human form? If I can shift, that’s cool. I’d go for a nice flight around the world and visit all my friends. If I’m stuck in dragon form, that’s less cool, and I’d go hunt down whatever wizard cursed me and give him a talking to.
If this question were any question in the world, what question would you want it to be and how would you answer it?
The question would be, “Do you want to go on an adventure?” And the answer would be “HECK YES” because I’m currently walking around my house in circles thanks to this quarantine. Someone please send me on a quest. Bonus points if you’re a dragon or the human incarnation of coffee.
Night lived in a tower at the end of the world. Her name was Layla, and the world did not know her. Day had no tower. His name was Aeric, and the world held no refuge for him. Yet with the evil Coroc and his army of shadowfiends terrorizing the lands, Layla and Aeric must work together to restore light and hope before all is lost. Night and Day must unite to save all peoples from eternal, terrifying evil in this lyrical tale that combines the wonder of George MacDonald’s fairy tales with the beauty of Tolkien’s The Silmarillion.
