My Guest: Lawna Mackie









I’m pleased to welcome Lawna Mackie today, continuing the MuseItUp Blog-a-thon of young adult and middle grade authors. Lawna has written a fantasy titled Enchantment with some very unusual characters.

Lawna, suppose you tell us about yourself.

I have always believed in fairy tales and when I got tired of the old ones I made up my own. Each story would have a hero and heroine, but they were anything but typical.

I devoured my first romance novel when I was a teenager. I couldn’t read them fast enough. Years later I stumbled across my first paranormal romance…an injustice would be done if I tried to explain my joy when I found this genre of romance. My passion was finally in print.

Now, with the help of my bizarre dreams and crazy imagination, I have started to write and intend to share my stories with you. I hope you’ll love them as much as I do.

I am truly blessed. My husband is my inspiration and soul mate. We live on a small acreage in Didsbury, Alberta, with our most beloved companions, Dozer, Daisy and Mandarin.

Happy reading everyone and please stop by to visit me.

Interview with character, Threeo 

We have a new character for you to meet today…and a very interesting character at that.

Welcome, why don’t you tell us a little about yourself, and where do you come from?

Hello everyone. My name is Threeo and I’m a Hippo-Dog-Burrowing Owl from the world of Enchantment.

Well Threeo, that’s quite a mouthful. Exactly what is a Hippo-Dog-Burrowing Owl?

I resemble all three earthly creatures. I have a small hippopotamus body, and fluffy dog tail, and my head is the burrowing owl. I was created by magic.

I see. Can you tell us a little about your world of Enchantment?

Enchantment is a great world, or at least it was until she arrived. I have visions, so I knew she would come. Enchantment doesn’t allow foreigners of any sort. My master is the Enforcer for the world and he was supposed to get rid of her.

Oh my! That sounds harsh. How was he to “get rid of her”? And who exactly is she?

Meeka came to Enchantment from earth. She fell in the water and somehow managed to cross the dimension and into Enchantment. Most creatures die. Kerrigan, my master should have sent her back, but he was scared she’d perish. What he didn’t know at that time was that she is a very powerful sorceress.

Tell us more about your life Threeo.

Okay, well, like I said Kerrigan is my master, I’ve been with him for a very long time. Oh…I also have babies. Baby Threeo’s! They are born in glass tubes and I raise them. When they are old enough they go to live with others like Kerrigan. The babies really like Meeka. Kerrigan’s parents Todd and Paddy Beaver are my favorites to visit. Paddy always has treats for Threeo.

“Beaver” you almost make that sound like they are Beavers?

Yes, they are beavers, but not like your human beavers. They adopted Kerrigan as a baby. Kerrigan is actually a dragon.

So what is happening in Enchantment these days?

{He shakes his head} It’s very scary in Enchantment. I’ve had a dream that Meeka kills Kerrigan, and she destroys the world. 

Really? Is Meeka that type of person?

No, she’s not that type of person, but an evil Enchantment Counselor is going to try to capture her. If my vision is correct she will become a weapon of destruction. Kerrigan will try to protect her. They have feelings for one another.

It sounds scary Threeo. I hope your visions don’t come true. Is there anything else you’d like to tell us about Enchantment?

I think everyone would like our world. It’s beautiful. We have seven moons, which are actually like your sun, but the seven moons are a different color each day, making our world change color daily. We have pixies in Pixie Field, and we also spend time at Funny Fish Lake. We have Itchits and Fur Balls…everything is magical. Thanks for talking to me I do have a tendency to talk a lot. I really hope you’ll enjoy Enchantment.

Threeo, how could we not enjoy Enchantment with such an amazing cast of characters? I’m so glad you and Lawna came to visit us today. Have fun on the rest of your blog tour.

I’ll see you tomorrow on Lawna’s blog:

    Barbara, thank you for hosting Lawna here. I really enjoyed reading the interview with Threeo. I have been introduced to him before, but this time I could really understand about his character.

    Lawna, your photo is beautiful. You look like a fantasy writer, however you have to look:) I am very interested in learning more about your story.

      Thanks for the comment Colleen. I’d love to have an audio version of my novel. I am working on a trailer that will be like a video trailer. It should be so cool!

    I just love characters that I’ve never come across in stories before. Threeo is totally unique. And the seven moons that change color each day is way cool too. Thanks for sharing. I hope to add ‘Enchantment’ to my collection soon.

    Hi Barbara, Lawna’s character, Threeo, is really something, isn’t he?
    I told Lawna I like her glamor shot.

    Hi Colleen, yes, Enchantment is quite fantastic. I hope you get to listen to it on audio sometime, too.

    Hi Michelle, it’s nice the way Lawna changed up the interview by presenting her character.

    Hi J. Aday, Threeo certainly is different. A bit of a chimera.

    Lawna, it looks as if every is enchanted by Enchantment. Looks like a great read. Thanks for the interesting blog.

    Poor Threeo. He sounds so very scared. I will have to read the story to see if his dream comes true.

    What a fun world you have creaded here Lawna. Sounds like a delightful story.

    Thanks to everyone who left me a comment. I really appreciate it. Threeo is quite the character. Enchantment has some wonderful characters and I hope everyone will like it when it comes out for release in January. It’s a great love story…but then again I’m prejudice! LOL
