Darklight On... Lilliana Rose

Today's Darklight On is ... Lilliana Rose,

Welcome Lilliana,

How did you come to write speculative fiction? What attracted you to the genre?

The first movie I ever saw was Star Wars, and I’m sure that has influenced my attraction to speculative fiction. That and my big imagination. I enjoy writing speculative fiction because I can let my imagination have freedom to create. 

Are you a plotter? Pantser? Or somewhere in-between?

I’m the sort of person that flys by the seat of my pants, so I’m more of a pantser than a plotter. I like to go with the creative flow when I write. However, the more I write, the more I discover that I’m somewhere in between. I also spend a lot of time thinking about the stories I’m going to write, so there’s a bit of planning going on in my head before I sit down to write. 

Do you have a favourite of your characters?

I love my character Zadi from my middle grade book, The Jumble Sale. She’s quirky, strong, a lot of fun, and helps to bring her community of misfit monsters together.

What are you currently working on? 

I’m currently working on the Lost Souls Academy Bk2, The Dream Talkers. 

What is your favourite part of the process of writing? 

My favourite part of writing is when I get a new story idea to write about. It’s a lot of fun then to see where this idea might lead. 

What can we expect from Lilliana Rose in the future?

I’ll be writing more paranormal romance. I have the Lost Souls Academy series to complete, and then I have another story brewing which I can’t wait to get into (Shh, secrets!). If only there was more time to write!

Who are your favourite authors?

Classandra Clare, I’ve enjoyed all of her books. 

What are you currently reading?

I’m currently reading Susan Horsnell, and her western romances. 

Do you have a favourite spec fiction movie or TV series?

I do love Dr Who. A lot. 
Star Wars is also one of my favourites movies. 

Do you have advice for emerging writers? 

Join groups on social media and learn as much as you can, a lot of the process is trial and error, so keep trying. 


Thanks, Lilliana Rose

The Waking of Ghosts

Lost Souls Academy Book 1

There is an evil awakening.
At the Lost Souls academy, students aren’t your typical everyday alumni. 

Rejects from clans, packs, and covens walk these halls, but there’s something more sinister haunting the academy.

A resident ghost has new student, Zarya, on the fight to banish it. Will her actions cause more enemies at her new school than friends? 

‘I’m coming for you.’
A message from beyond has Zarya fearful. Her skills are underdeveloped, but as a ghost hunter, she must stand and fight this new evil. 

Can Zarya grow to be the ghost hunter she’s destined to be or will forces overpower her and bring chaos and destruction to the Lost Souls academy?
