My time with Sara Raasch...

When I met the cover and read some reviews about “Snow like ashes”, I was very excited. Now, I finished the first book of the trilogy and I can say I’m fucking excited for the rest of the series. Today, I want to share with you a little interview that I had the opportunity to do with the mind behind this incredible adventure. Here’s my time with Sara Raasch…

The magic is the art of producing a desired effect or result through the use of incantation or various other techniques that presumably assure human control of supernatural agencies or the forces of nature. The fantasy is the forming of mental images, especially wondrous or strange fancies. Imaginative conceptualizing. “Snow like ashes” was a magical and fantastic experience for me. What should be the role of magic and fantasy in our lives?

I’ve always loved fantasy and magic because it helps us escape from the problems of our every day lives. Escapism is what drives me to create new worlds and spend time with new types of magic—a chance to get a pause from our world, so when I come back to it, maybe my perspective will be a bit clearer!


Why do you choose a woman like the spirit of change?

Meira’s spirit was who I wanted to be as a teen—someone stubborn and loyal and strong, who knew what she wanted and would fight for it. In some ways I still hope I’m like her!

When you go to a library, you can find many (many) young adults books and similar kind of stories. Every single week, at least, the publishers publish new material for the readers. What is makes “Snow like ashes” different?

I think that varies reader to reader, depending on what they most took away from the story. And while there are a TON of YA books out now, I don’t think that’s necessarily a bad thing—for every book, there is a reader, so I just hope SLA finds its way into the hands of readers who most need it!

That question could be sounds like a cliché, but I need to ask you, why a universe based on seasons? I love that idea.

I loved the idea of making spring “evil” and winter “good”—once I had that, the other seasons just sort of fell into place!

The next step for Sara Raasch will be…

I’m currently editing my next series, a YA pirate fantasy coming soon!
