Today, I’d like to welcome author Allison Pang, a marine biologist-turned-novelist who lives in Virginia. A Trace of Moonlight is the third book in her Abby Sinclair series. You can find out more about Allison from her website.
ABOUT A TRACE OF MOONLIGHT: Abby’s pact with a daemon—whether or not she remembers making it—is binding, so she’d better count herself lucky that (in the words of a daemon who knows better) there’s nearly always a loophole. But her friends’ reckless attempts to free her, well intentioned though they may be, set off a disastrous chain of events. In no time at all, Abby turns her incubus lover mortal, then gets herself killed, cursed, and married to an elven prince whose mother wants her dead. On top of everything else, she’s lost the Key to the CrossRoads to her mortal enemy, who promptly uses his restored power to wreak havoc on the OtherWorld and put its very existence in jeopardy. Only one person can make things right again, but to find her, Abby must place her trust in allies of mixed loyalties, and conquer her nightmares once and for all.
What is your favorite scene in the book?
Hmmm. That’s always a hard one to pick, but I always love the silly scenes. (I’ve got a soft spot for the one where the Wild Hunt is running up the middle of Times Square, in particular.)
Hardest scene you’ve ever written:
Honestly, all the scenes dealing with Abby and her mother.
The Palace Job by Patrick Weekes
Favorite book when you were a child:
The Last Unicorn. Also, The Little White Horse (both unicorn centric, go figure.)
Your five favorite authors:
Jacqueline Carey, Kate Elliott, Robin Hobb, Lynn Flewelling, Sarah Monette
Book you’ve faked reading:
I’ve never faked reading a book.
Book you most want to read again for the first time:
There’s a Melanie short story coming out in the Carniepunk anthology next year (it’s a bit of a prequel – we find out how she got her violin.) I’m in the process of writing more of a straight fantasy at the moment, but if there’s an opportunity to write more Abby stories, I’d be happy to continue.
