Featured Interview With M A Price
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I am from Cambridge in the Uk and I have four incredibly spoilt cats! They are my fur children and know exactly how to get their way and all have their own geeky names after some of my favourite characters. I used to work in freelance journalism, but moved to novel writing last year. The Caged Kingdom, the first book in The Unforgiven Series has just been released! It’s a dark/epic fantasy series for YA-Adult fantasy fans!
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I’ve been reading since I could pick up a book. I used to get in trouble for it both at school and at home, but can honestly say I regret nothing! I’d also write as soon as I could. All these crazy stories. Each of my teddy bears, since I was about 4, had an entire back story and character arc that I knew and I’d be so mad if someone didn’t remember the details.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I’m a big fantasy and sci-fi fan. I always have been. I do read other genres, but they are my go to. That’s adult and YA stuff. It’s mainly always about good characters with me. Show me a character I can fall in love with, or the perfect anti-hero and I’m 100% there.
Inspiration wise, I’d have to mention: George R R Martin, V.E Schwab, Samantha Shannon, Laini Taylor, Patrick Rothfuss, Peter F Hamilton, Mark Lawrence, Cassandra Clare, Nicholas Eames, Erika Johannsen and Neil Shusterman.
I adore their work and only hope my stories can touch someone even half as much as theirs have touched me.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
The Caged Kingdom is the first book in The Unforgiven Series. It focuses on four main POV characters: Katanya, Mara, Camrin and Jaxon. They are all very different and each facing their own challenges. I love the way you see them grow through the story. You have to think: Swords and sorcery, epic battles and a dash of romance. Hopefully there is something for everyone!
