Welcome to my Friday Author Spotlight, today I will be doing a character interview with Eva Della Luna. She is a healer and a painter within YA Fantasy author Maria Vermisoglou book The Cursed Girl. I am happy to have them both here today for your enjoyment. Hope you will look into adding The Cursed Girl, the first book in The Cursed Girl series to your reading list.
Without further a do, lets get the party started…
~ EVA DELLA LUNA ~
Do you have a chosen profession? What is it?
I’m a healer and a painter.
What’s your world like and where do you fit in it?
I was born in the White Land, a magical land where witches reside. I live in Spain in the year 1230. Things are hard because royals are cruel with their people. I try to help them as much as I can but there’s so much you can do. I try to balance my life with and without powers because in the era I live, magic is not something you reveal.
Is there one person you would move heaven and earth to protect? Who is it and why?
Jonathan. He is one of the ones I love most and even if he’s acting stupid some times, I love him and I will protect him.
What are your goals? What would you like to achieve?
I would like to travel, draw, be with my friends and my cat. Preferably, without being killed by demons or humans.
Tell us about your favorite adventure you went on? Don’t leave out any juicy details…
I’ve been in lots of places but one of my favorites was when we were running away and hid into a forest in Firenze (Italy). Yes, we were in hiding which I did not like but the place was amazing. I love nature and this place was like magic. We were staying in a cave near a waterfall and the view was amazing. All right, maybe it was also amazing because Jonathan kissed me there and made me lose control of my powers. A fact that I didn’t like but fortunately, he didn’t ask any questions. But anyway, if you ever get a chance to go to Florence, please don’t miss it.
Everyone has a close friend or companion. Who is yours? Tell us a bit about them…
Ritta is my best witch friend, my companion in battle. We do everything together and tell each other everything. She’s like a sister to me and I rely to her. She is a great listener and her advice is very helpful. Witches can communicate with telepathy so she’s there even if she’s not physically there.
What is the biggest regret you have? Can you explain?
That I didn’t throw to jail the yelling couple who caused my death. Nah, uh! I’m not saying anything else. You have to read the book!
Tell us about your nemesis. Why are you to enemies? How did it happen?
I’m a witch, I have lots of enemies. Mainly, demons. In my world, witches have the duty to protect humans from demons. We guard the boarders of the Earth for that reason. Another one of my enemies was my husband’s uncle who tried to kill us and take over the world with his army. Luckily, I was there to sacrifice myself and beat his evil plans.
If you could change one thing about yourself what would it be? Why?
Myself or my situation? I would like to trust people more easily, especially these who are worth it.
