Meet Author Vashti Quiroz-Vega
I am thrilled to introduce author Vashti Quiroz-Vega. A recent RRBC Spotlight Author, she is really making a name for herself across the Pond. Apart from the fact that she is a talented and dedicated author, I am in awe of her ability to write a 500-page book! What an awesome feat. The Fall of Lilith is the critically acclaimed first book in Vashti's Fantasy Angels Series. It has been described as "addictive and amazing" - and, as someone who is currently reading it, I have to agree.
About Vashti: A versatile US writer of Suspense, Thriller, Fantasy and Horror, Vashti also mixes Humor and Romance into her stories. Passionate about writing from an early age, she finds it easier to express her thoughts on paper than through the spoken word. Vashti enjoys making people feel an array of emotions through her writing.
She says: "I like my audience to laugh one moment, cry the next and clench their jaws after that. "My love of animals and nature are often incorporated in my stories. You'll read intriguing things about various animals, nature and natural disasters commingled in my character driven novels." Vashti's favourite authors include: Stephen King, M. Night Shyamalan, Michael Crichton, Anne Rice, J.R.R. Tolkien, J.K. Rowling and Dan Brown.
About The Fall of Lilith: An irresistible new take on heaven and hell that boldly lays bare the passionate, conflicted natures of God’s first creations: the resplendent celestial beings known as angels. If you think you know their story, think again.
Endowed with every gift of mind, body, and spirit, the angels reside in a paradise bounded by divine laws, chief of which are obedience to God, and celibacy. In all other things, the angels possess free will, that they may add in their own unique ways to God’s unfolding plan.
Lilith, most exquisite of angels, finds the rules arbitrary and stifling. She yearns to follow no plan but her own: a plan that leads to the throne now occupied by God himself. With clever words and forbidden caresses, Lilith sows discontent among the angels. Soon the virus of rebellion has spread to the greatest of them all: Lucifer.
Now, as angel is pitted against angel, old loyalties are betrayed and friendships broken. Lust, envy, pride, and ambition arise to shake the foundations of heaven . . . and beyond. For what begins as a war in paradise invades God’s newest creation, a planet known as Earth. It is there, in the garden called Eden, that Lilith, Lucifer, and the other rebel angels will seek a final desperate victory—or a venomous revenge.“
[A] compelling narrative that . . . strays far from traditional biblical text . . . A well-written, descriptive, and dark creation story.”—Kirkus Reviews
