Desiree Williams | Author Chat


I hope you've got a comfy chair and a tasty drink. I'm excited to welcome author Desiree Williams to the blog today for an author chat.


Desiree is a dreamer by day and chocoholic by night. She lives in the beautiful state of Kentucky with her husband and daughter, where she juggles life as a wannabe supermom. Desiree is a lover of food and avoider of dirty dishes. She delights in making people laugh and strives to bring hope and love with her wherever she goes.

Let's get real...

Two truths and a lie:
Ooh, I love this game! Can you guess the lie?

A) I lived in Alaska for three years.
B) I’m deathly allergic to seafood.
C) In high school, I was a Latino Dancer.

Share one pet peeve you have.
When someone smacks their lips while eating. Ugh! I can’t stand it. A relative of mine does this and I have to fight the urge to throat punch him during meals. (Just kidding! I’m not a violent person. But for real. I hate that sound.)

Cats or dogs or both?
Both. I love animals in general and, as long as they’re willing to snuggle with me, I’m down for some cuddles with a cute doggie or kitty.

Favorite dessert?
Chocolate lava cake. Oh my goodness, I love it. While writing Illusionary, I craved that gooey treat so bad that I wrote it into the book. I was on a strict diet at the time and couldn’t have any. Therefore I lived vicariously through my character.

What's one chore you hate doing?
Can all of them be an answer? I seriously loathe having to clean my house. Most of the time, I only clean when I’m procrastinating with my writing or my task lists. But if I had to pick a number one, dishes would be at the top.

Illusinoary
by Desiree Williams

Dorothy got sucked into a tornado.
Alice fell down a hole.
Wendy flew to Neverland.
Kamryn? She tripped down the stairs.

Now, Kamryn Kensington finds herself in a strange new world. Within minutes of her arrival, she dodges an archer’s arrow and avoids getting sliced up by a cosplay reject holding a dagger to her throat. And that’s before the storyteller’s breath brings stories to life.

Home is the mission—to return to her family and pursue her life’s dream of art and travel. Yet the longer she’s in the Land of Ur, the harder it is not to feel for the people she meets. Even her artistic side can’t help but breathe in the beautiful wonder and magic of this new world. So when the Oracle hands her a different quest, she takes it on the condition he sends her home afterward.

No one thought to warn her of a jealous queen and her dragon minions. Or that, by helping her, the cute storyteller would go crazy. Or that her heart would rip in two when she left. Those would’ve been great facts to know ahead of time.

Considering that nothing in Ur is what it seems, the mission proves to be more than she ever imagined. But more than her own future will be in jeopardy if Kamryn doesn’t succeed.
