Welcome to Romance Lives Forever. I’m Kayelle Allen, author and owner of this blog. Let’s play Is It True with today’s guest, Tricia Schneider, author of Ice Princess, a fantasy romance. This is a game with yes and no questions. Writers can elaborate on answers as much as they choose.
Ice Princess by Tricia Schneider
Genre Fantasy Romance
Book heat level (based on movie ratings): R
Princess Lily is determined to save her kingdom from the evil influence of the sorcerer in their midst. When she makes her stand, he curses her beloved to turn into a dragon and casts a spell that seals her in a block of ice where she will sleep for all eternity.
Eternity arrives earlier than expected when Rick Stamos tears down a wall to the tavern he’s renovating. He never expects to find a woman encased in ice hidden in his basement. After melting the ice, he’s more surprised when the woman wakes and claims he is her beloved.
Did the spell that kept Lily frozen for so long also curse Rick? Is he really her beloved or a stranger with the same face?
Is it true:
this is your first book?
No. This is my sixteenth book published. I have a few more future books scheduled for release. By the end of the year, I’ll be up to twenty.
this book is part of a series?
Yes and no. I didn’t originally write Ice Princess as part of a series, but readers have been asking for more. I’m considering writing other books set in this world.
you lost sleep while writing this book?
Yes. My deadline for this book was approaching fast. I didn’t know if I would make it or not. It was nerve-wracking, but I did it!
you did research for this book?
Yes. The story takes place in England, so I did some research on the setting.
some characters in this book are not human? (pets for example)
Yes. Lily’s beloved is turned into a dragon by an evil sorcerer.
this book has more than one genre?
Yes, if we’re talking subgenres. It’s a romance, no question about that. It could be Fantasy Romance or Paranormal Romance.
you speak more than one language?
Yes. I speak English. Well, since I was born in the USA, I speak American English. I took five years of German in school. I’m not completely fluent, but I managed to get by when I visited Germany several years ago. I enjoy reading books written in German. I can read it better than speak it!
I also began teaching myself and my children sign language. I started learning simple signs when they were babies. It was easier for them to sign what they wanted (thirsty, hungry, etc.) before they learned how to speak. With each baby I had, my older children continued to learn. Again, we’re not completely fluent, but learning it has become handy in some moments. While I worked at the bookstore near my home, a deaf customer came into our store one day. I still remember his smile when I answered him with sign language.
you grew up where you live now?
That’s true. I’ve traveled to 2 countries and visited nearly half of the United States, but I’ve always made my home in Pennsylvania. I currently live in the town directly next to the one where I grew up. I really haven’t moved far.
you love to read?
Absolutely true! I’ve been an avid reader all my life. I loved books so much I worked in a bookstore for 12 years. And if Waldenbooks hadn’t closed its doors back in 2010, I’d still be working there.
you are never late?
Not true. I always try to be on time, but it’s a hassle leaving the house with four kids. Inevitably, someone is missing a shoe or something and we all need to search for fifteen minutes before leaving the house. My life is typically chaos!
you love pizza?
Yes! There’s a pizza shop in my town called Messina’s Pizza that makes the BEST Sicilian pizza! My favorite!
you love sushi?
I don’t know. I’ve never had sushi.
you have a pet?
Yes, I have 2 cats, Cassius and Harley. I found them at different times as stray kittens in my backyard. Or rather, they found me!
