The Five Warriors
The Four Worlds Series Book 1
by Angela J. Ford
Epic Dark Fantasy

"The characters were well-written and well-developed, the story was clear
and enjoyable without being predictable, and there were a couple of
evenings I stayed up later than I intended just so I could get to the
end of a chapter. If you're a fantasy fan, you're going to LOVE
this!" —Amazon review

What if...
your best friend started a rebellion in the middle of a war?
your lover awakened a deep evil and helped it grow?
your people were too cowardly to face a battle?
you stole an ancient power source?
you gambled with the fate of the world?

Join five powerful warriors each with a unique ability and magical
weapons. Their quest is to discover where the transformed creatures
are coming from and put a stop to it.

Along the way they run into treacherous immortals, sea monsters, powerful
beasts of the air and talking animals.

Each has their own reasoning for joining the quest, but one carries a
deadly secret which just might be the destruction of them all.

"Angela's imagination has brought these characters to life and the worlds they live in."

Describe your writing style.
I’m a bit of a lyrical writer. I love prose and, the more you read of my writing, the more it comes out. I love gorgeous description scene and enjoy less playful banter but deeper dialogues that make you think. I write for adults mainly because my material is a bit heavier, and I don’t think young adults enjoy it as much as adults do. I like to take the reader to a new world and introduce them to characters who are likeable but have their quirks. Character development is where I spent a lot of my stories, blended in with the action and adventure. If I pulled a phrase from the book, I want you to know who said what, because you know the characters oh so very well.

What makes a good story?
Diversity of characters, they aren’t all serious or airheads or intelligent or smart or male or female. I truly enjoy characters from different backgrounds and perspective and I like something to happen. I want the characters, or the world they live in, to be better off at the end of the story. I want them to learn and grow and come to a moral revelation whether it’s personal or something that can be shared with people around the world. I firmly believe that what makes us different makes us stronger. If you ever watch superhero movies, you’ll notice that all the superheroes have a different superpower. One might be strong, another can fly, another is super smart. Being different from each other can make us build up barriers and group people together based on similarities, or we can build teams of different people and become stronger together.

What are you passionate about these days?
I’m pretty passionate about taking action, not just talking or blaming others for the way things are, but empowering people to take action and make changes that make life better.

What do you do to unwind and relax?
Reading is a great way to relax, but I also enjoy binge watching TV shows and drinking red wine. One of my favorite shows is Doctor Who - I watch it over and over again. Some of my other favorites includes:

How I Met Your Mother
Parks and Recreation
How to Get Away with Murder
Stranger Things
Person of Interest

There are many more. I have a pretty diverse taste when it comes to shows and movies, but my favorites are always action-packed.

Traveling is also one of my favorite ways to relax. Visiting other states, countries and cultures helps me see things from others perspectives and express empathy towards others. It also gives me more inspiration for upcoming novels.

What made you want to become an author and do you feel it was the right decision?
I’ve always been a storyteller, from music, to blogging to writing. I originally wrote The Four Worlds Series between the ages of 12-16 and I just could not get enough. Once I finished the final words of The Five Warriors, I realized I had a bit of an addiction to finishing things. I love the cycle of writing, releasing a book, reading what others think and doing it all over again. Each book release is more exciting, each story is better. There are some people who read for entertainment, and some people who enjoy musing over the layered messages in my novels. I think entertainment is a powerful way to make change happen, and often, the things that entertainment me the most, the things that stick with me, make the most difference in my life. Becoming an author wasn’t something I considered or even thought about the way you think about taking a job or what to study in college. In fact, I don’t have formal education as a writer, it simply fell into my lap because it’s something I love and something I’ve always wanted to do. I set out to write the book I wanted to read and, as it turns out, there are thousands of readers who also want to read the kind of books I want to write.

Do you see writing as a career?
Oh yes, my goal is to be a full time writer and spend my time between the US and Europe. I certainly want to spend more time in unique places, writing. I have a place in Sandycove, Ireland picked out.  I want to spend some time writing in castles and cathedrals. I also love history and desire to travel to places where history is rich and old.

If you had to do it all over again, would you change anything in your latest book?
Did you learn anything during the writing of your recent book?
If your book was made into a film, who would you like to play the lead?
Anything specific you want to tell your readers?

Brought up as a bookworm and musician, Angela J. Ford began writing The Four
Worlds Series—a fantasy series—at the age of twelve. The
storyline of those books was largely based off of the imaginative
games she played with her sisters.

Angela originally finished the series when she was sixteen. After college,
Angela began to rewrite The Four Worlds Series, bringing it from a
child’s daydream to an adventure young and old can enjoy. Since it
is inspired by fairy tales, high magic, and epic fantasy, Angela
knows you’ll enjoy your adventures within the Four Worlds. 

If you happen to be in Nashville, you’ll most likely find her at a
local coffee shop, enjoying a white chocolate mocha and furiously
working on her next book. Make sure you say hello!
