The Fallenwood Chronicles is the ongoing story of Ash Kensington, a young woman who finds herself transported into a fantasy world, where she must take up arms in a battle of Good vs. Evil, against the Dark Lord Malegaunt. Tragedy strikes her life in the real world, but she finds friends in Fallenwood, like her mentor Will Everett, a talking cat named Greymalkin, and a court jester named Terces. Working together, they battle against the odds as Ash faces attacks from the world and from within. Eventually Ash finds the strength within herself, to attempt the fight against Malegaunt, against overwhelming odds, come what may

Her heart raced and she breathed slowly, trying to calm her frazzled nerves. Glancing around, she wondered how far off the road she’d wandered. She knew it had been midday when she’d started running, and now looking up into the star-filled sky, it had to be late into the night. A rush of air greeted her the moment she reached this strange part of the forest, before her eyes had temporarily forsaken her. The wind whipped around her from all sides. She backed away from where she stood, and the wind felt like it was whooshing up from a precipice. Ashley paused to allow her eyes to adjust to the dark. When her sight returned, she realized that she was standing nowhere near a cliff—it was just an unfamiliar area of forest. Suddenly, a ball of fire hurtled overhead in an arc toward her. Her mind screamed at her to run, but she found that her legs wouldn’t move. The flaming orb continued its descent, burrowing itself into the soft ground only inches away from Ashley’s boots. Two men rushed toward her, arguing all the while as Ashley stood immobilized. Her bones were in revolt. Her brain scrambled for an alias to give out to the men if they asked, but she could only come up with Ash, because she was looking at the little pile of soot at her boots. “Deflected,” the man in the lead announced.

Interview with Leslie D. Soule

What are four things you can’t live without?

Books, chocolate, Thor (my fish), and my gigantic collection of pens.

What is your favorite television show?

House of The Dragon, based on the book Fire & Blood, by George R.R. Martin

If you could be any character, from any literary work, who would you choose to be? Why?

I think I’d like to be Indigo from the Indigo Series by Louise Cooper. I even used peroxide to get my brown hair to turn a vibrant shade of red once, so I could look more like Cooper’s main character, Indigo.

What have you got coming soon for us to look out for?

I have the concept of a novel, starting to form in my mind, about a high-born Lady and her love, who shapeshifts into a dragon. I might call it Skies Ablaze, but I’m not tied to that title, yet.

What books or authors have most influenced your own writing?

Brian Jacques, J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Jack London, and Charles Bukowski are all favorites of mine, and I think have influenced my writing in various ways.
