-- Taking a chance and creating something completely different from the norm is a risky business especially in the financial times we are currently living in. But that is exactly what first time author Valentine St Aubyn has done in her debut novel Zoe Evans' Possible Worlds the Crystal.
In a departure away from the familiar characters of vampires, witches and wizards that we have become accustomed to reading in books and seeing on our screens Valentine St Aubyn has created a young, inquisitive, earthy heroine out to unravel the mysteries of her grandfather and the family's hidden secrets. Her explorations take her on a lifelong journey where she learns a few hidden truths about herself and the world she lives in. There is an undeniable supernatural and mysterious dimension to the storyline cleverly intertwined with parallel universes and multidimensionality which adds suspense and originality. "I have always been intrigued by the concept of existence and our purpose in life as well as existence beyond our planet and in this novel I have attempted to explore these themes deeply," she said in a recent interview. Zoe Evans' Possible Worlds the Crystal is the first book of a three part series. Instantly accessible to the teen, young adult and adult age groups it heralds in a new style of storytelling for a different generation giving a much needed twist to the sci-fi and fantasy genres.
Valentine St Aubyn is a graduate from London Metropolitan University with a BA in Philosophy and Mass Communications. She has been a dancer, worked in public relations, higher education, and as an editor. She was born in London in 1972. After living abroad in both the United States and Portugal she now resides in England with her family. For further information visit www.valentinestaubyn.co.uk.
