Author H. C. Harrington: What makes this book Noblebright?
Noblebright is a subgenre which often ties into fantasy stories. When I wrote Daughter of Havenglade one of the main goals was to give the world a female hero who could “save the world” while not appearing overly powerful or unbeatable. She suffers many of the physical symptoms of anxiety but she still manages to overcome many of her fears and self-doubts. Our heroine Laurena, goes from an unsure and troubled girl into a confident, capable woman.†
She looks out for others. She doesn’t have longings for fame or fortune. She is noblebright because she wants to be on the side that protects the weak. She is noblebright because she will turn against her own kingdom if it stops caring for its people, and she is noblebright because her parents raised her that way.
H.C. Harrington is the author of the epic fantasy series Daughter of Havenglade. His recent work includes Daughter of Havenglade, Black Dragon Deceivers, The Night Thief, and the soon to be released Blood Cauldron.
H.C. graduated from the University of Nevada, Reno with a B.A. in Anthropology and History. After putting a hold on summertime archaeological digs in the Sierra Nevadas H.C. moved to Chengdu, China, to study Chinese language and culture. Along the way, he’s visited or lived in over a dozen different countries.
His hobbies include traveling, writing stories, reading anything he can get his hands on, backpacking, and trying new things.
