Guest Author: M.M. Shelley with Giveaway

HI Everyone, I’m M.M. Shelley and I would like to thank Lisa for having me as a guest today. I would like to share an interview with Grasiella Najera from Mishap and Retribution.

 So please pour yourself a cup of your favorite Latte and if you’re at work, hang up your “On Break” shingle as we take five with Grasiella.

When did you first learn about magic?
Everyone in my family has magic; my parents, my twin sister and our little brother. We were always warned by our parents that we had to keep it a secret for our own safety. You know how parents read their kids bedtime stories where the fairytales all had happy endings? Well, our fairytales were based on real life horror stories.

 

What kind of school do you go to? Do they teach magic?
My twin, Tatiana and I go to a private school and nope, magic is not a subject. Magic is taught in secret, we have personal tutors who come to our house and we use the underground caverns and tunnels to train. Sometimes we train outside, but even than it’s a risk.  It’s a good thing we don’t have any neighbors they might complain about the noise.

 

Having spent your summer in Hawaii visiting your grandmother what is the one thing you will take away with you?

Finding out what my family’s dark secret was, for sure that will be it. I always knew my grandma was eccentric, now that I know what she’s had to deal with has changed the way I look at everything. She’s my hero.

 

What did you think of Jupiter Island and all the magical occupants?

I’ve always heard from my tutors that there were places where we could practice magic without fear, but I never thought I would actually visit one. It’s a little intimidating.

 

What is your favorite pastime?
I love to go on runs; living inHawaii where there are some of the most beautiful beaches is just amazing. I love swimming in the ocean too; you just never know what you will find in the water.
