Eden Forest (Saskia Trilogy #1)
by Aoife Marie Sheridan 
Sarajane Anderson is your regular twenty-one year old with family, friends and a normal job. She also happens to be the only person who can save Saskia, a parallel world to earth. When Sarajane is taken to Saskia, she could never have imagined the reality of the world that she is stepping into- a world where magical abilities are in everyone's possession. She must face a father she never knew, a world that is beyond her belief, a guardian who captures her heart; and a darkness that wants to take it. On her journey, Sarajane discovers her magical abilities, and realizes too that they come with a price. Sarajane is truly tested as her own loved ones are put at risk- the ultimate question she is forced to ask herself is, how do you choose who lives and who dies?

Q & A with Author Aoife Marie Sheridan
Can you tell us a little bit about your main characters?

The main character in Eden Forest is Sarajane Anderson. She is raised in the mortal world with no idea that she is from Saskia a parallel world to earth. Taken as an infant by her mother to earth she grows into a normal girl unaware of her heritage or why she has been hidden amongst mortals. It’s not until she is taken to Saskia by force, that she soon realises who she is and what she must do. Her journey through Saskia changes her in so many ways. First she must believe in another world and also in creatures that shouldn’t exist and she also discovers love.

Who designs the covers for your books and what is that process like for you as an author?
The designer was Terry Quinlan I told him what I wanted and he delivered perfectly. The waiting to see the book cover was nerve wrecking but when I did I cried, it was exactly as I had pictured it. He designed all the three book covers for the Saskia Trilogy. Here is his website if anyone wishes to check him out:

What is the best advice you have been given?
I don’t recall who said this but it was something that has always stayed with me. “If you can’t find a book that you want to read, then write it” like I said it’s something that has always stayed with me.

Describe your ideal writing spot.
O I want a mahogany table with the green leather J must be green and a large cushioned swivel chair, situated right under a window that looks out into a forest. I would have to be surrounded by bookshelves from floor to ceiling. That to me would be ideal. Maybe one day. J

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go and why?

To Egypt to see the pyramids, since school I have always been fascinated with them, and what secrets they hold, now I am thirty and still hold the same fascination so I always swore that before I die I will see them.

If you could have any superpower, what would you choose? 

What a cool questions but straight off the bat, I would love to be a mind reader, I think it would be awesome to hear everyone’s thoughts, but I would really like and on off button for it, or it could get really complicated. J

Which do you prefer: hard/paperbacks or ebooks? 

I always loved paperback and when I first heard the word e-book I wasn’t sure what it was. At Christmas my boyfriend bought me a kindle and I wouldn’t part with it, it’s as precious as my laptop and phone. So e-books.

What book are you reading now?
Right now I am reading touch by Melissa Haag, a great book, one that I am enjoying so much. I love all her work.
