Interview with Pearl Beacon, Author of Orenda

29 Jun 2022

What’s the story behind the story? What inspired you to write Orenda – Curse of Immortality?

My mother and co-writer jokes that I will come out of the shower with an entire story plot. However, it’s not far from the truth. I experience my plotting almost like info dumping. Meaning that I’ll receive ideas for a complicated trilogy in a matter of minutes and then as I sit down and write down the plot more details emerge. It’s an incredible gift that I’m deeply grateful for.

If you had to pick theme songs for the main characters of Orenda – Curse of Immortality, what would they be?

Klergy x Valerie Broussard – ‘The Beginning Of The End”

What’s your favorite genre to read? Is it the same as your favorite genre to write?

I like books with a psychological twist that leaves you thinking about them long after you finish the book.

What books are on your TBR pile right now?

All the classics. Right now, I’m reading Jane Austen.

What scene in your book was your favorite to write?

The one where one sister confronts the man who lied to her. It’s a dark scene but I felt her indignation and anger so deeply when I wrote that scene.

Do you have any quirky writing habits? (lucky mugs, cats on laps, etc.)

I often listen to classical music while writing and my favorite time is when it’s pouring down outside and my puppy is curled up sleeping by my feet.

Do you have a motto, quote, or philosophy you live by?

My philosophy is that life is about balance and the richest person is the one who feels they have enough.

If you could choose one thing for readers to remember after reading your book, what would it be?

I would love for the characters to get under your skin so much so you think of them as real people.
