ANNOUNCEMENT:  Petronela's giveaway has been won by Petula.  Congratulations, Petula.


What made you want to be a writer?
It came naturally. I've started as a journalist for a daily newspaper and only recently  have I discovered my inclination towards fiction.

What attracts you to the fantasy genre?

The endless possibilities, I can make up worlds, mystical creatures and unknown abilities.

Do you write in Romanian language as well as English?

No. Aside from my journalistic articles, I have nothing else written in Romanian. English is my...magical language.

Can you share a little about your new release?

I met a demon" is a story based on actual events. It was narrated to me by someone very close and it still haunts him after so many years. I thought it was my duty to pass it on, to put it out there for people to read.

Can you see yourself trying other genres like contemporary or historical in the future?

I have recently finished a Regency romance novella. I haven't found the courage yet to send it the publisher though :)

What's your next step?

My next step would be to finish my fantasy novel and maybe try other genres as well...


I MET A DEMON


Lost in a gloomy village away from the civilized world, a young man lives the most horrifying experience of his life. This story is based on actual events and it follows faithfully the incredible narration reported by the very hero of this story. The reader might be tempted to doubt these facts…He should not.

  2. Great interview, Maria and Petronela. I can see why English is your magical language, Petronela - you use it so beautifully on your blog too.

    I Met a Demon was chilling, the sort of thing you keep thinking about long after you read it, particularly knowing it was based on real events.

    Send that novella off! :-) x

  8. Love this interview! Petronela is a wonderful writer and keeps your imagination working well after you've read her work. I've been hesitant to get I Met A Demon because I know of such experiences. I understand why it would make one look over their shoulder. Even with that being the case I'm still excited to read it... so I hope I win the copy! LOL

    1. Hi Kitty! Well, the main character is Petronela's boyfriend, so I presume he's blissfully happy and doing great. Nice to see you over here again! Welcome back!

  10. Is this story about demonic possession or psychotic disorder/personality disorder?
    To rule this out is not responsible from a clinical, psychiatric and health point of view. I trust this has not been over ruled.
    If the person is a believer Romanian Orthodox Church will treat it. I speak as an Orthodox believer. I do not wish to see people suffer.
    And Jesus Christ I believe is the cure for this problem.
    If you wish me to review the book I would need it in word.doc for review format, otherwise- well there are others to do this in any case.
    The book has a nice cover.
    If punctuation and grammar (as per review) was a problem, ameliorate it get, it edited NOW, professionally, a good work deserves that.
    These are only my feelings. I will see through this work and know in my heart what we are confronted with if the pages are revealed to me. I have a very spiritual and psychological background.
    I wish the author every success.

Review - 1857 Dust of Ages - The Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shanker

This has to be the first review on MBB in a very long time and it was well worth the wait. Anyone who likes Indian historical fiction is going to adore this beautiful read.

Maria Perry Mohan's Review of 1857 Dust of AgesVolume I -  A Forgotten Tale by Vandana Shankar


As historical fiction goes, this is first class. We’re literally getting glimpses of a fascinating story as seen through the eyes of today. Can it really be that an Indian royal family gave their daughter in marriage to a British Army officer?  Some say it could be impossible, but has the truth been covered up? And why?
Those glances back in time show teasing glimpses of a royal family at a crossroads. The queen’s consternation when a male hair has not been born and her greedy sister-in-law, the one who has a son, eyes up the kingdom. Would such a queen mother be good for a kingdom? Probably not.

The princess’s character comes through as a girl who has been born to lead her kingdom. The 19th century produced one of the gr…
