CBG: Today on Savvy Saturday we have Jenna Greene and her...um...press agents here to give us a status update on the world of Oren.
Jenna: (in hushed voice) I'm good. Thanks for having me here today.
CBG: Thanks for taking the time to answer a few questions about your writing. First off—erm, why are you whispering?
Jenna Greene: Well, two of my characters have nominated themselves as my press agents and I'm not sure they're very qualified for the job. If we could finish this interview rather quickly, then—
Brownies: We're here!
Jenna Greene: (groan)
Petie: Did you miss us?
Alana: That is a silly question, brother. Of course she did! We are AWESOME!
Petie: Yup. Tup-bub. She's really good at hide-and-go-seek.
Alana: She's been hidden for days.
Petie: Jenna, were you sad when we couldn't find you?
Jenna Greene: (sigh) Of course. I love you little guys. It's just that sometimes I have to deal with work and…
Petie: (Straightening posture) Right.
Alana: Let's be professional.
CBG: No. No glasses needed. Alright, first question: What's it like on Oren right now?
Jenna Greene: That's an interesting question. There are developments with the Elementals' adversaries, particularly the Coalition. Kat will learn—
Petie: Mostly flat. Sometimes bumby.
Alana: Oren is cool. Autumn is coming. Lots of brown. Some green.
Jenna Greene: That's not really what she meant by the question, guys.
Petie: You don't know that. You aren't sidekick.
Petie: That either.
CBG: Well, Alana and Petie, how about more about yourselves? Would you say you guys are troublemakers?
Petie: Never. We help. Like when we poured seven spoonfuls of sugar into Jenna's tea in order to give her more energy. Helpful. Very helpful.
CBG: Is there anything going on near Areth that might be important for people to know?
Jenna Greene: There are many political developments that might be disturbing to someone that knows the history of that region. In the book, Reality, which is soon to be released, Eston and Renin learn that—
Alana: I can do a cartwheel.
Jenna Greene: (Face palm)
CBG: Um... sure.
Petie: No fair! I want to do a cartwheel!
Alana: You don't know how.
Petie: I can learn.
Alana: No you can't. You're a stupid boy and I'm a girl. Girls rule and dogs drool!
CBG: Hey now! Let's just—
Jenna Greene: That's it. I'm going to take a nap.
Petie and Alana: We're coming! That sounds fun.
Jenna Greene: Oh, goody.
CBG: Well, I guess that concludes our interview. Tune in next week for another fun post!
About Jenna Greene:
Jenna (Butrenchuk) Greene is a writer from Alberta, Canada. She is also a middle school teacher, so writing is not just a career, but a path to sanity! Jenna recieved both her Bachelor of Arts in English and her Bachelor of Education from the University of Lethbridge.
A fierce wind and a blast of green light during a strange storm causes everything to change for Katharine Bowers and Becky Thatcher. The girls wake up in Oren, an entirely different realm than their earthly city. They meet Enalie, a fading magical presence who sets an incredible destiny before them… then simply disappears. Left alone to fend off creatures that hunt them in the night, they must relay a magical heritage that doesn’t make sense, and – if possible – save a world that they know nothing about.
