Mishap & Retribution by M.M. Shelley - Character Interview & Giveaway

HI Everyone, I’m M.M. Shelley and I would like to thank Tami for having me as a guest today. I would like to share an interview with Kye Wailele from Mishap and Retribution. So please pour yourself a cup of your favorite Latte and if you’re at work, hang up your “On Break” shingle as we take five with Kye.

What is your full name?
Kye Wailele

What is the Hawaiian meaning of your name?
Kye means Rejoice and Wailele is waterfall. The name Wailele was given to my father from his mother Pele.

When is your birthday?
April 12, 2028

When did you first learn about magic?
From my father, who learned from his mother, Pele, the Hawaiian goddess.

What kind of school do you go to? Do they teach magic?
After my parents died, my uncle Kona thought it was for the best that I was home schooled. My uncle moved my cousin Kana’i and me around the islands a lot, so we were never in one place for too long. With our magic we have the ability to control fire and lava. The Hawaiian gods are always at war with each other, always fighting for control of the islands, it’s amazing that there are not more islanders who don’t know us.

How do you like having Pele as your grandmother?
We’re not entirely close.

Having lived in Hawaii all of your life, is there any place you would like to see?
I’ve been to Australia once, I would like to go back and spend some more time there.

What is your favorite pastime?
Whenever I get the chance I like to spend it in the ocean, I do a lot of surfing, nothing competitive. I don’t think it would be fair to everyone else if I did enter considering I’d have an unfair advantage. Sometimes when I’m out in the water and I want a really good wave I will control the waters current, make it do what I want.

Mishap & Retribution 
by M.M. Shelley
Mishap series, book 3
July 11, 2012

At the Dawn of Time a curse against Man was made and only Death will satisfy it.

The year is 2045 and twins Grasiella and Tatiana who are Cinerian, Fae and Human must choose a side and may find themselves on different sides of an ancient war.

With Tatiana trapped in the Fae realm and learning what life has been like, she has found herself bonding with the Fae. Grasiella seeking the whereabouts of her twin has come to a crossroads of her own.

Separated and neither knowing the fate of the other, each make their way to an uncertain future.

Death has swept across the Hawaiian Islands and the cost of peace may be too high.
