But ancient evils do not care for truth and only want vengeance on her for what she has done.Interview with the author:Question: What inspired you to write Awakenings?Answer: I wanted to explore a character I created almost thirty years ago. Sabrina is a witch who appears in my first novel, Dorothea’s Song and I wanted to explore her origins story. I also wanted to create another series set in the magical world of The Realms. It’s a world of wizards, witches and dragons that is similar to the Renaissance era. Awakenings is also my first book in which I explore more mature themes.Question: Can you talk about that? What made you decide that you wanted to include sex scenes in this book?Answer: It was a difficult decision to make, but I didn’t want to censor myself. The world of The Realms is grittier than my normal writing and I wanted to explore Sabrina’s backstory in not only showing how she realizes that she becomes a witch but also her awakenings to sexual desire. Awakenings is a coming of age story with sex and magic. It’s about Sabrina discovering who she truly is and coming to terms with having hidden that from some people for a long time.Question: Tell us a little bit more about Sabrina.Answer: For those who have read Dorothea’s Song, they might be surprised to see where she started in life. She’s a simple girl who has no close family and works hard as a servant girl in a great house. But what I really wanted to show is her past juxtaposed with her present so that readers could see how far she’s come in life and also how much she’s changed and been affected by events. She’s an intelligent and strong woman who has carved out a nice niche for herself by starting her own coven, but she’s also been hurt and damaged.
