Featured Author: Cara Goldthorpe(Breakwater Harbor books)

Cara Goldthorpe, founder of Breakwater Harbor Books, is a novelist and poet. Her current project is a literary fiction/fantasy series telling the tale of a war between two races. It is a story about people, emotion and survival, infused with hope and optimism. Personal struggle is portrayed equally alongside the struggles of empires, to highlight the individual’s importance and role in the universe.

The main themes in Cara’s writing concern finding ‘balance’ through an understanding of multiple perspectives, and peace by living harmoniously with Nature. Drawing inspiration from real-world history, science, and religion, her work subtly provokes reflection on society and human nature. 

She told stories to fill an empty spirit, hiding from the truth. But the world bleeds from enemy wounds, and she cannot run forever.
It is Midsummer Day, and the sun dawns over a city resonating with the sounds of Life. The people honour their Triple Gods, and celebrate the third year gone by without an enemy siege.

But they are oblivious to a new threat that is coming.

Her Natural Balance disrupted, the world of Meridisia plunges into chaotic struggle. In the midst of it all, one lonely storyteller, one lost girl, grapples with assuming a new identity. Uprooted from poverty, and thrust amongst the powerful, suddenly she must make the right choices to save her people.

But she will learn that nothing is ever simple.

When the enemy strangle your home with flames, seize your loved ones and crush your hope, dark emotions grow within like a gangrenous disease.

And then, no one is a hero.
The Awakening: Dawn of Destruction is the first book of ‘The Fires of Light and Dark’ series.
