Interview with Ivory Autumn, author of Rise of the Fallen: Andrew and the Quest of Orion’s Belt

Rise of the Fallen: Andrew and the Quest of Orion’s Belt was one of the first books I read and reviewed on this blog. Not knowing what to expect from an Indie author, I had no clue what I was getting myself into. All I wanted to do was read a great fantasy book, and I was surprised by the quality of this book.

Today, after what feels like a really long time, but has only been a couple of months, I interview Ivory Autumn, the wonderful young author of Rise of the Fallen. I have to say, this is one of the most interesting interviews I have done. So read on!

My love for gardening, and the long hours I spent planting flowers with my grandma, who just recently passed away, gave me the idea for Andrew’s ability to grow plants and flowers on command. I thought growing seeds without having to wait weeks for them to come out of the ground would be so very handy.  Also, my sister has a business where she deals in gemstones; that coupled with my imagination, gave me the idea for Orion’s gem fields in the book.
