But when she discovers a Mark on her leg, the entire Legion accuses  her of being a Demon spy. Angels are dying, and David begins to pull  away from her. Can Kara prove her innocence as she becomes the Legion’s  only hope?

Interview with Kim Richardson, author of "Marked":

1. Can you tell us a little bit in your own words about Marked?

Kim Richardson: Marked is the story about a sixteen year-old girl who dies and wakes up in a strange world with a new career as a guardian angel. It’s a fast paced adventure of good against evil, with a little romance thrown in.

2. What kind of Girl is Kara Nightingale? Her world’s been turned upside-down and wakes up in a new world, which must be hard for her to handle.

Kim Richardson: Kara is quirky, headstrong, kind, and a bit of a loner. She’s also an artist, and paints the demons that haunt her in her dreams. She grew up trying to shy away from her mother’s strange visions; wanting only to be normal. But the hints of the strange in her mortal life somewhat prepared her for the life she would have in Horizon.

3. What inspired you to write a Young Adult novel?

Kim Richardson: Young adult novels are what I read the most, so it’s only natural that I would choose to write one. I just knew that’s what I wanted to write.

4. How many books do you have planned for this series?

Kim Richardson: There are three books in this series.

5. What was your favorite experience in writing this book?

Kim Richardson: Creating fun and original characters and developing a new world.

6. Who are some of your favorite writers?

Kim Richardson: Philip Pullman, Neil Gaiman, JK Rowling, Tamora Pierce, Diana Wynne Jones, Cornilia Funke, Jonathan Stroud, Tolkien, Terry Brooks…and many more.

7. If you could be any one of your characters who would it be and why?

Kim Richardson: I would be an Oracle. Because they can see in the future and I’d love to be able to do that.

8. Can you tell us what you’re working on next?

Kim Richardson: I’m working on the second book in the Soul Guardians trilogy, and at the same time developing a new YA series.

About Kim Richardson:

I grew up in a small town in  Northern Quebec, where I developed a wild imagination because—let’s face  it—there was nothing else to do. I surrounded myself with  art/books/animation and fell in love with fantasy novels and movies  like, Labyrinth and The Dark Crystal. I loved to be transported to other  worlds.
Years later, I left my little “hick town” and moved to the city of  Montreal, where I studied 3D Animation. I became an Animation Supervisor  for a VFX company, and stayed in the field of animation for 14 years.
Now, I’m a full-time writer, enjoying the country life with my  husband and two Bernese Mountain dogs, Simba and Maggie. My children.
I write stories geared towards children because, let's not tell lies, I'm still a 13 year-old at heart!
