Isabel - Karen Rosario

I am a housewife who recently learnt how to iron. I like eavesdropping on strangers, starry nights, and wearing my red shoes.
I am particularly inspired by this quote from John Bayley: 'The great conventional character must be created out of love; out of our delight in the existence of another person.' I believe that what is unseen is far more real than what is seen and I try to write stories with this eternal perspective. I like beautiful things, things that point to God and his goodness and love.

Product description:

Somewhere, in the middle of a fallen island, Isabel and her creator are falling in love…

The Isle of Somnus is governed by Scholars and Scientists proud of their commitment to ‘completely proven fact’. When Isabel sees a unicorn she finds herself utterly alone, doubting everything she has ever believed. After running away from school she becomes fixated with a mysterious Island across the ocean. If only she had a spoon she would dig a hole, pour the sea into it, and run away.

Then she meets Michael. He is neither a Scholar nor a Scientist and he agrees to help Isabel find a spoon.

In actual fact, Michael is a lost school boy who arrived unwittingly on the Isle of Somnus after falling into a coma. Although his pledge to help Isabel is noble, his life becomes increasingly at stake the longer he stays on Somnus. Isabel has no idea Michael is only dreaming her, and falling in love only adds to their danger.

Q: What will e-readers like about your book?

Anyone who dreams of flying will like my story. It is an enchanting tale that appeals to children and adults who have not fully grown up. Of Isabel, one reader remarked: ‘…she reminds me of Madeline, Alice, a whole host of strong heroines, girls that throw down their books, and do not listen to the Scholars and Scientists, girls that follow their hearts..’

Q: Why did you go indie?

I got quite a lot of support from fellow writers on Authonomy and loads of them were doing it, so I followed and jumped off the cliff!

Q: Who are your favorite authors in your genre?

C.S Lewis, Lewis Carroll, and the guy who wrote The Little Prince
