Palace of The Twelve Pillars by Christina Weigand

The Peace Summit was in shambles, the prince kidnapped.

When the rival king realizes he kidnapped the wrong prince, hostilities escalate. Loyalties to each other and country are tested for the twin princes of Crato, Joachim and Brandan.

Joachim, captive of King Waldrom, faces deception and betrayal as he struggles to find his way home. Brandan, at home with a father focused on rescuing Joachim, wrestles with his own demons as he searches for his place in the world and the favor of his father.

Torn from the safety and peace of their childhood, they are thrust into a world where bonds of family, brotherhood and roles as heirs to Crato are tested. Through war, spiritual journeys, death and marriage, will they choose the path of good or evil? Who can be trusted, as the world they know slips into a whirlpool of chaos?

Q) What inspired you to write this book?I had written a short story about a teen prince and two things came of it, first that there was more story than could be contained in a short story. Second; I wanted to know how the prince got to the place he was at the beginning of the short story. I wanted to know about his family and what events led up to and included the prince’s story. So I went back two generations to his grandparents and parents and Joachim and Brandan, the father and uncle emerged. And boy did they have a story to tell.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?When God and the characters take over the story. It’s almost like an Elvis has left the building kind of thing. God and the characters tell the story and I become the conduit that brings them to life. That hasn’t happened in a while because of the prep of getting three books to publication. But I am looking forward to the day when the new characters rattling around in my head find their way to the forefront and can tell their stories.

Q) What is your favorite candy?That’s an easy one; anything chocolate. If I have to narrow it down I would have to say Snickers or M&M’s

Q) What is your favorite cartoon?Okay a little harder. Peanuts. If you are looking for one on tv I’m going to show my age here. When I was a kid there was a cartoon about a white lion cub named Kimba. It wasn’t on very long but I loved it.

Q) When did you know you wanted to be a writer?I remember being in middle school and high school and wanting to be a journalist. After high school life got in the way and it wasn’t until about eleven years ago when I rediscovered writing.

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?Palace of Three Crosses the second book in the Palace of the Twelve Pillars trilogy will be released in September 2013. Just recently I received word that Sanctuary of Nine Dragons the third book in the trilogy will be released February 2014. Then after that I will have to see what God has in store for me.
