1) What is the name of your character? Is he/she fictional or a historic person?
Princess Willow has a gift for debate. She is a fan of satin, lace, and getting her own way. She is the strong-willed daughter of Watcher and Benaiah, the King and Queen of Forest End, which is a fictional land from my fantasy series.
2) When and where is the story set?
The story is set in a medieval style fantasy world called Anthelion, where everyone is blessed with one special gift. Most gifts are mundane; for instance, one might be a talented cook or seamstress. Some people, however, have powerful, supernatural abilities. These are the people about whom legends are told.
3) What should we know about your character?
Willow may be a bit of a brat, but she is also clever and as the child of prophecy, she has the ability to change the world.
4) What is the main conflict? What messes up his/her life?
In the beginning of the book, Willow is kidnapped by an enemy kingdom. She finds herself in a strange land in the company of a young man who is nearly impervious to her gifts of persuasion.
5) What is the personal goal of the character?
Six year old Willow would very much like to fulfill her role in the prophecy already so she can get back home to her riding lessons.
6) Is there a working title for this novel, and can we read more about it?

Kenneth Schultz - "I like to make things and writing allows me to create whole worlds, the people in these worlds, and challenges to confront my people. Writing also lets me explore issues facing mankind, like the impact on civilization of the exhaustion of fossil fuels. Sci Fi is my favorite genre and fits well with my background in engineering, science, and economics. I presently make my home on Washington's picturesque Olympic Peninsula."
