L. A. Weatherly - Author

L. A Weatherly was born in Arkansas, and moved to the UK in 1995. Her first book, Child X, was shortlisted for the Sheffield, Leicester and Red House Book Awards and was also chosen by the American Library Association as one of their ‘Quick Picks for Reluctant Readers’. She lives in Hampshire.

L.A. Weatherly on writing Angel, the first in the trilogy:

I've known Alex for a long time. He first came to me as a character almost twenty years ago, when he was a thief in a fantasy setting – an expert with knives rather than guns. Nothing came of that particular novel, but Alex always stayed with me. He refused to go away, in fact! And over the years, I began to wonder about redoing his story completely, and placing him in a contemporary setting.

Once I had that, I had the rough premise of the story: suddenly I knew that Willow had psychically seen something that she shouldn't have, and Alex was a teenaged hit man. The two of them join forces instead, and fall in love.

Then, in a bookstore about a year ago, I saw all of the books about angels that were out. Rather than focusing on the religious aspects of angels, these books seemed to be about something more: the idea of angels as very personal helpers to humans; friendly beings who you could call on for anything from helping you find a parking space to saving your life.

With one of those almost-audible clicks that writers sometimes get, the two story ideas came together into a glorious whole.

Angel happened very quickly after that; it seemed to write itself. Writers aren't supposed to have favourites of their own books, but Angel is incredibly special to me – I've known and loved the characters for a very long time. I'm thrilled that Alex and Willow finally have their own story, and are going out into the world. It's been a long time coming!
