Author Interview: Sarah Allerding

Okay, yesterday just disappeared right out from under me, and I forgot to post the interview with Sarah Allerding, like I was supposed to. (Bad Kendra.)

Anywho, this is for the blog tour for Sarah's newest release, The Swords of Time, which is a delightful time travel novel in the vein of The Magic Treehouse or even Castle in the Attic. 

Can you tell my readers a bit about your book and why they need to go read them RIGHT NOW?
The book is about two boys who are sent into medieval times when they find some special swords. The boys have an adventure full of danger and bravery. Will they find the lost heir to the castle before it is too late?

What inspired Swords of Time?
My friend came up with an idea to have twin boys with specific names in a story. The names she chose made me think of writing a book about brothers in medieval times. I chose different names and made the brothers different ages.

When not writing, what can people usually find you doing?
Studying the Bible, spending time with my friends, umpiring baseball, reading, watching movies, cooking, and baking.

Do you know your personality type, and if so, how would you say it affects your writing?
I have gotten both INFP and INFJ on personality tests. I would say my personality affects my writing the most in the way I develop my characters. 

What's next on your horizon?
I have a a few books started. One is the second in the Rainland series. I am hoping to get one of the books done this year.

Braden has one goal: knighthood.

Unfortunately, he lives on a horse farm in modern day America with his uncle, his younger brother, and an aunt who absolutely hates him.

Against all odds, Braden and his brother, Jamie, stumble across a pair of special swords that sweep them back into medieval times. They land near a castle whose lord has a task for them.

His older son is lost somewhere in time, and only someone who can control the Swords of Time can save him.

With the goal of knighthood suddenly in sight, Braden's not sure he wants to leave, but he wishes to impress the lord. Can he protect his brother, find the lost heir, and fulfill his dreams, or will the lord's younger son ruin everything?
