The Fireflies’ Champion kicks off a brand new classic fantasy series for fans of Percy Jackson, Fallen, and The Forbidden Library series.

What if I told you there is more to life than meets the eye and that some things in this universe are unbelievable?

That heroes are dead, the afterlife is real, and that all the ones you’ve lost are still out there, watching over you?Oh, and gods like Zeus, Hermes, Aphrodite? Those are real too.

And that every moment leads you further to your destiny. But not for me, of course. I was never supposed to die, and now I must spend the rest of my days with a target on my back. A ghost, living in a city of angels. And the boy that failed to save me the first time vows to save me again and again in the afterlife, for all of eternity.

Yet still, some higher power believes I’m a hero, too. Capable of saving both humans and angels.

THE FIREFLIES’ CHAMPION is the first book in the Guardian Angels United series.

Interview With Amy

1. As a debut author, what have you learned this time around that you’ll definitely implement for your next book?

I plan on working way more with story beats from the beginning. For The Fireflies’ Champion, I didn’t actually learn about story beats until I was done with the first draft. I can’t wait to start using it from the very beginning.

2. What was the hardest part about writing this story?

Finding the time to write with a full time job! I love writing, but sometimes I’m just tired at the end of the day. It took me a while to find a writing routine that worked.

3. Who was your favorite character to create?

Charlie! I know he’s a very minor character but he was so meaningful to me. I based his character off of my dog Charlie who was sick at the time, just before he passed away. I made a list of the little things he used to do so I will always remember and incorporate it into the book.

4. Who, if anyone, inspired you to become an author?

So many! Dana Swift, Django Wexler, Julie Hall, and JK Rowling.

5. Do you have a favorite author? Favorite series or book?

Currently, Dana Swift. I absolutely love her books!

6. What new or upcoming release are you most excited about?

I just got Belladonna by Adalyn Grace. I can’t wait to read it!
