AP Author Spotlight: Ariella Moon

Ariella Moon


Describe yourself in three words:

Magical shamanic author


Tell us a little about your latest release:

Spell For Sophia

Kidnapped by her lawless parents, Sophia resorts to thievery and arson to escape. Her survival depends on her mastering magic and the supernatural, and guarding her heart against Breaux, a voodoo queen’s grandson. When magic hurls the teens through time, Sophia’s friend Ainslie will risk her sanity to find them. Fate and ghosts await, and conjuring always exacts a price.

The idea for Spell For Sophia grew out of the third book in the Teen Wytche Saga, Spell Fire. Sophia appeared as Ainslie's missing friend, and I knew I had to tell her story.


What is your earliest memory?

My earliest memory dates to when I was two years old. My parents had followed the aerospace industry from Mississippi to California. I don't remember the seemingly endless road trip, just my mother saying, "We're here!" I looked out the window from the back seat of our Rambler station wagon, and thought, finally!

Don't get me started on my past life memories, because those go back centuries!


What would you consider the greatest moment in your life?

I have had so many great moments in my life! Falling in love. Graduating summa cum laude from college. Seeing my daughter graduate from college. Signing the contract on my first book. My shamanic work has enabled me to experience moments of amazing magic.


What’s the hardest thing in in life you’ve done?

Giving birth to my daughter. There is a reason she is an only child!


What have you learned in life so far?

I have learned that there are no coincidences, that magic is real, and that everyone in your life has joined you on the journey to offer you a lesson or aid, or give you an opportunity to clear your karma. I've also learned that you will get invited to a lot parties if you know how to make chocolate chip cookie dough brownies.


Everyone’s favourite question: if you could invite five people for dinner, who would it be?

Inviting five people to dinner would completely freak me out unless they were my best friends and/or family.  Even then, I would obsess, worry, and drive everyone crazy.
