LIAMO’SHEA, bestseller author of the SciFi saga, Eiloe.
All I knew was pain – a childhood filled with cruelty and villains who used andabused.
I first heard her sweet, angelical voice in the dark of night, when I lay bathed in myown impending death. Seventeen years later, it’s not the nightmare she pulled me outof that haunts me, but the glimpse of Happily Ever After she revealed just beforedisappearing.
They said she was a figment of my boundless imagination. A wish. A dream. Until Ihad no choice but to believe them, cherishing my imaginary savior the only way I knewhow – in fiction and lore.
But fantasy has a way of transforming reality. When I finally tire of being a citizen ofthe world, I take an impromptu sabbatical as a professor at a small college on thecoast of Maine. And there I see her, the girl with the sea-green eyes and angelicvoice.
My world turns upside down. Turns out my girl is for real, and the pull between usis anything but imaginary.
Happily Ever After has a story ... and this one is mine.

The overall theme of the IncandescentSeries is romantic with a touch of magic and whimsy.
As you know by now (spoiler alert if you haven’t read my full bio :http://www.sylvieparizeau.com/about-sylvie/), I am epilogue obsessivecompulsive.
And as Éolie once said to Liam in one of their deleted scenes:
_“Liam, it’s a compulsion. I swear; I start to read fully intending not to skipahead, but I can’t help it. I need to know how it ends before I can enjoy how thecharacters get there. I cannot bear anything less than a happy ending. Everyonedeserves a happily ever after.”_
Guilty as charged. I am one of those who read the end ... rightafter Chapter One. So by now, you’re either, gasping, cringing, totally scandalized, orsmiling in complete accord, depending on which side of that story youstand, non?
But in any case, this obsession of mine is what started my story-telling journey. Ican’t tell you how many times I concocted additional scenes in my head every time Igot lost in a romance book. What do you mean The End? Noooo. It’s the beginning!Give me the happy!!
And as such, Liam and Éolie’s story, INCANDESCENTLY, bookOne in the Incandescent Series, holds a very special place in myheart, and I hope it will in yours too come October 22, 2016.
