- Introduce us to your character. Tell us his/her name, what books they can be found in (indicate whether it is a series), and please include a buy link.
Hey you all. I am Sienna Sinclair and I am 16 years old. I love to play soccer, be outdoors and hang out with my friends. I am realizing I have some pretty cool powers that are slowly waking. You can find me in the first installment of Starseeds-The Initiation that tells my journey of how I transformed from a being a “normal” human into a powerful… (Sorry- I can’t give you all the juicy details!)…But I will just say that I become a very powerful Starseed.
Check out the Starseeds Series website to get all the 411 on the book and our creator/author Mariela Stewart: http://www.marielastewart.com. You can also find the books in the Devine Destinies Books website- the mainstream imprint of eXtasy Books.
Release date was 11-16-13. So don’t miss the opportunity to buy Starseeds-The Initiation! Here:
2. What makes you special? What differentiates you from your kind? Do you have special abilities?
Yes I do have very special abilities. While I appear like your typical teenager, I actually possess certain powers and gifts that have been awakened after my initiation. I can do some pretty cool stuff, like manipulate the elements and journey into the dream realm… the other stuff I can’t quite say, without giving too much info. But I assure you that you will be surprised- I can hardly believe it myself sometimes!
3. Tell me about your most current adventure.
In the first book— The Initiation— we got to kick some Dark Cabal butt! The coolest part is that we got to do it with our newfound powers. In the next book, the adventures escalade, since we need to prepare for the Dark War, which has been forewarned by the Dark Cabal and prophesied throughout every culture in the world. We need to limit the Dark Cabal’s infiltrating forces on Earth, if not we will be lost in an abyss, where war and chaos would reign. Only by coming together with my “brethren” (other Starseeds) we can end their control. It won’t be easy, but we will give them the biggest fight they will ever get!
4. If you could offer your author advice, what would it be?
Don’t stop believing! Don’t give up on us and on the story…the message needs to be heard so it can touch every single heart and change the world forever.
5. Are you happy with the way people perceive you?
Yes, at first I was quite shy and didn’t think I was as powerful as I would later become. I tell you- I have to pinch my skin every now and then as I realize everything that I can now do. From reading minds, to moving objects to fighting like an MMA fighter! It’s super exciting! I don’t think my friends would recognize the person I have become.
Tell us a little bit about your world.
I co-exist in 2 worlds- Earth and…. (Sorry I can’t dish this part out either)…another amazing realm.
Does your author ever try to take over the story? And how do you deal with it?
Yes- all the time! When she revises and edits the manuscript, after the 1000 time, it gets kind of annoying. Because when she modifies a paragraph, it affects our world that is already a living, breathing reality. So I need to remind her to just STOP and just let it be.
Is humor important? Why or why not?
Of course! Their needs to be some funny moments. Life is very complex, where we get to experience every emotion and laughing lifts our spirits.
Is expressing love difficult for you? Why?
Well, yes and no. I am very expressive with my parents, but that’s about all. There is a boy…kind of. His name is Sabian and while at first we would but heads on just about everything, as we got closer, I realized he was pretty cool! But in matters of the heart it can get pretty complicated (hey- I am only a teenager, and everything is pretty complex at my age), as you will soon see after reading The Initiation. We will just have to see where things go (sigh!).
What is the most interesting thing that has happened to you?
Definitely being contacted by a secret society and from then on my life literally changed in every way possible! As you will soon see.
Did you do anything special after your first adventure?
Yes- I went on a much-needed vacay! After my initiation, which was pretty intense and I was beat, so my parents and I went on a cruise! That was pretty sweet!
Is there a message you want to get across in this interview?
I think the most important thing is to give Starseeds a chance. I assure you it is unlike anything you have ever read, where the reader transforms along with the main character. After reading The Initiation, you will never see the world with different eyes. Your life WILL change forever!
What was the least interesting thing that has ever happened to you?
Dating Trevor for sure- you will read about that too pretty soon.Ugh!
If you could pull your author into your world, what do you think would happen to them?
She would get it- I think. But you can never tell with authors. They can be pretty complicated people. I hope she would just go with the flow and not want to control every little thing!
If you could time travel, where would you go?
Definitely, to the time when the pyramids were erected- which I will let you in on a little secret- they were built way before we think they were.
What other characters have influenced you?
I must say that Sabian and Moira; also my cousin Chia and many of my new friends (brethrenS Starseeds) from the secret order.
Share a little bit of the ‘real’ you with our readers. Any Dark secrets?
Hmm…yes I have a big one…it’s related to Sabian…but can’t say entirely. Sorry. What I will say is that we have a powerful connection.
What motivates you to continue on these adventures?
My mission. It is very clear and must be complete. It is why I reincarnated into this life. It must be done.
What is your most favorite thing to do?
Play soccer for sure! Watch my soccer idol Cristiano Ronaldo in a good soccer match! And hang out with my friends.
Have you ever lost control?
Yes- it’s part of life, of the learning process, but regaining the reigns is what matters.
Describe the most (pick one: complicated, fun, deadly, erotic, weird) device you’ve encountered.
Complicated- Metatron’s cube. You will see why I say this when you read the book.
Describe what the (pick one: political structure, environment, medical system, social norm) is like.
The political structure is rigged and it infiltrates every level of society from which we need to break free from.
Are you able to visit different planets? (And if so, describe one.)
I can’t say…but I do visit a really cool place! Mark my words…you will love it as much as I do!
What’s the one thing you wish they didn’t have in your world?
Draco’s and Ciakars…they’re bloody ugly and quite frankly extremely annoying!
Describe your abilities and how exactly did you get them?
I got them after my initiation took place. That was the beginning of my new self.
Is your gift always right?
Yes- unless I choose to ignore it- which I have, and it has gotten me into some serious trouble.
Does your gift get you in trouble?
I just said that. Yes- it has. I can’t promise you that it won’t happen again. Hey- I am just a teenager, but I am learning.
What (pick one: good or bad) things have you done with your gift?
Good-Knowing a person’s bad nature, that ended up saving our life!
Bad-Lol! Read someone’s mind- I wanted to know if Sabian liked me.
Would you trade your gift for a different gift?
No! I love all my gifts especially the one I cannot mention. That one is the BEST!
Finally, is there something you wished we had asked, but didn’t?
Yeah- when is the movie coming out? Cause I know Hollywood would love having us there!
It will happen soon, very soon!
