Heart-wrenching tragedies, a perilous uprising, and one impossible choice.

As a professional pianist, it is only in music that Evelyn Bell allows herself to let go of reality. After the loss of her parents, Evey struggles with obsessive compulsive disorder and remains fixated on an echo of the past—until her life is turned upside down once more during a symphony performance. Trapped within a vision, she locks eyes with a mysterious young man. Without answers, she is quickly returned to her piano bench center stage as time literally stops around her.

Ailis is a woman of the Celts, and the daughter of a chief, whose clan means everything to her. She yearns to be strong like her father and to protect her people from invaders. When she loses her brother on his wedding day it is only the beginning of many scars on her heart. With help from the other clans, she tries to keep her father’s alliance alive long enough to strengthen the nations and save them all. As their leader, Ailis must let go of her grief and remember her warrior path, but will she be able to protect her people against all odds?

In this compelling tale of two women separated by centuries, Evey and Ailis will seek answers, fight for their freedom, and embark on a journey of self-discovery through memories and strife where they must learn to embrace loss, change, and their true destiny.

Why don't you tell us a bit about 'A Bell Sound Everlasting'?
A Bell Sound Everlasting follows two women who span space and time, both going through their own set of trials in a coming of age story. Fantastical events occur which force them to figure out and embrace their destiny.

What gave Evelyn Bell her passion for music?
Evey's passion for music came from her musical soul. She has a very empathic personality, and music touches her in a way that can transcend and open her heart. Some of her love for music also came from her childhood and playing the piano for her father.

Music is a theme in this book, how does it impact this story?
It connects to the story because Evey is connected to her music through her emotions, and her emotions are running rampant as she desperately tries to control her turbulent mind.

What are some of your favorite songs?
I have way too many, haha. But I really like oldies, classic rock, some 90s and early 2000s pop, classical, as well as Celtic. Right now, I'm listening to an old favorite "Everywhere" by Michelle Branch.

Fantasy, is such a fun genre. What drew you to writing it?
I think I was drawn to writing fantasy because it's so freeing. The genre of fantasy has a very wide net so you can basically do anything you want, and that's so exciting to me. You can create a whole new world that shadows ours on some or no level at all. I like being able to do that.
