#FridayFandom: PERIL BEYOND THE WATERFALL by Christine Porter

Welcome to another #FridayFandom author interview. Today we're meeting with Christine Porter, author of PERIL BEYOND THE WATERFALL.

In the magical empire of Laenutia, beyond a gateway of cascading water, lies a kingdom in peril. The forces of evil are gathering, ready to oust the rightful rulers of the land. Chaos hovers as the ruthless Prince Validin sets his plans in motion.

But there is hope. For in the sleepy village of Omondei lives a small, insatiably curious boy called Jeremiah, who dreams of doing something extraordinary. When Jeremiah is asked to travel beyond the walls of Omondei, he leaps at the chance. Along with a band of intrepid adventurers, Jeremiah is quickly drawn into an astonishing whirlwind of trickery and danger, where nothing is as it seems, and not everyone can be trusted.

Who is the rightful ruler of Laenutia? And why are so many people desperate to win Jeremiah over to their side? The deeper Jeremiah travels towards the heart of this mystery, the closer he comes to learning who he is, what choices he has to make, and what his dreams foretell.

1. Tell us about your book (s) in 140 characters or less.

Peril Beyond the Waterfall: Prince Validin is ready to oust the rightful rulers of Laenutia. Only Jeremiah can thwart his evil plans. 

2. What would be the theme song for your book?

The Gummy Bears theme tune. You'll understand when you meet Gladly. 

Hidden Worlds Books: Are you talking this Gummy Bear?

Hidden Worlds Books: Or these ones? (comment below)

3. What is your favorite "book" movie and why?

Interview With a Vampire. It stands alone as a piece of great storytelling. The book itself is fantastic, but the movie is one of those rare ones that don't pale when compared too the book.  

4. What are you currently writing?

The second title in the Histories of Laenutia, Night of the Cologoro. I'm aiming to have it out in May. I'm also plotting Book 3, as yet untitled. 

5. What are you currently reading?

Book 10 in the Wheel of Time series: Crossroads of Twilight. 

Thanks for participating Christine! Very excited to read this, and good luck in finishing the rest of your series!

Christine Porter is a Pretoria-based writer of children’s fantasy. This is largely because she refuses to take anything seriously, and believes things should be bent to her will. She did not anticipate that characters, much like people, have minds of their own and often will not be told. She is the middle of three sisters, bilingual, staunchly South African and an avid tourist (but a terrible photographer). When she's not writing or travelling, she runs a small electronic bookshop and provides friendly advice and manuscript prep services to other writers.
