So hey everyone! Today’s my last anything with the blog tour of Water Princess, Fire Prince, and I’ll be doing an author interview with Kendra E. Ardnek. Yay!
Let’s get started!
- What gave you the idea to write WPFP?
The desire to climb into a shower, close my eyes, and be spirited away to another world.
That would be awesome
2. Where do you normally write?
For the most part, on my computer with Microsoft Word or Atlantis, and usually at my desk under my loft bed, but I also love notebooks and mechanical pencils, and I’ll write with them anywhere.
I often times work under my loft be too!
3. When you experience writer’s block, how do you overcome it?
I step back from the blocked story and work on something else, whether it be another story, cleaning my room, knitting a scarf, or running around in circles like a crazy person. Eventually I wander back, wither because of a breakthrough or guilt, and get through the block.
I tend to run around like a crazy person! What better way is there to come up with new ideas? 🙂
4. Which of your WPFP characters was your favorite to write?
Laura. She’s a minor character in WPFP, but she’s the actual main character of the series. She has the ability to control the doors between worlds, and her timeline is out of whack with the rest of the characters, so she’s fun to work with.
My favorites are often times a secondary character. Laura is completely awesome!!
5. If you had to re-name your story, what would it be?
The original title was Waterfall Princess, however, I think that, if I were to retitle it now, it would be The Rise of Water and Fire.
It has a good title now.
6. If everything you wrote became true, what would you do?
I would be the queen of the universe and everything would be perfect.
Don’t tempt me with such power. Please.
7. How long did it take to write WPFP?
The first draft took about five years, the second draft was written in five (non-consecutive) months.
That’s a pretty long time…
8. Do you listen to music while you write? If so, what kind?
I’m unfortunately one of those boring people who writes best to the click of her keyboard and the scratch of the pencil. However, when I do decide to turn on music, it’s usually classical, inspirational, or a movie soundtrack.
Sometimes I do work best to the click of my keyboard. But, the Doctor Who soundtrack works wonders!
Thanks for coming! It was fun!!
Thanks for having me over!

When the Lady Dragon does come,
Hold fast, do not fear, do not run.
Your Water Princess will fight,
Fire Prince will set all to right.
Each shall come from a Fall,
Their union will save you all.
Despite the fact that she’s on track for competing in the Olympics, and he’s practically raised his younger brothers since they lost their mom in a car accident, Clara Mandras and Andrew Stevenson are pretty much normal teens. They have normal hopes, normal dreams, and they live in a normal world.
All this is torn away from them when they are thrust into another world and declared Water Princess and Fire Prince. With no experience ruling a country, meeting each other for the first time, and being expected to fight the Lady Dragon – an evil sorceress plaguing the world of Rizkaland – Clara and Andrew are underprepared and inexperienced. Unless they learn to work together despite their standing opposition, Rizkaland’s hope will be lost.
What is to come will change their lives forever.
