Author Interview: Yvonne Hertzberger

Yvonne HertzbergerName: Yvonne Hertzberger

Do you write with a pen name? If so, what is it?

No, I use my real name. If I were writing in more than one genre I might consider it to avoid confusion for my readers, but even then I think I would stick with my real name.

In which country were you born, and which one do you live now?

I was born in the Netherlands but came to Canada as a toddler and became a Canadian at the age of six – even signed my own card. I remember it well. J

Which genres do you write in?

I categorise my work as Epic Fantasy (epic because it is a trilogy) but many readers of Historical Fiction think it would fit there as well. I can’t do that, though, as my ‘world’ is not a real place. Some even think it ought to be Romance but that actually is a minor theme.

How many books have you had published? (feel free to name them all)

Two, so far, with the third in the works to finish the first trilogy. The series is called “Earth’s Pendulum”, book one is “Back From Chaos” and book two is “Through Kestrel’s Eyes”. The third will be titled “The Dreamt Child”.
