Hello everyone, today we are Reuniting with the Magical Bestselling author Michele Barrow-Belisle! Michele, thank you for this wonderful opportunity and welcome back to The Write Styles! 🙂
Reuniting with the Magical Bestselling Author Michele Barrow-Belisle
TWS: Since your previous interview, I have been following your success stories. One headline really needs to be addressed, your book Fire and Ice is becoming a movie! We at The Write Styles congratulate you on this remarkable achievement, congratulations! Please, can you update our readers on what they can now expect from Fire and Ice? And of course, how you feel about this dream come true?
Michele: Hi Julia, thank you so much for your good wishes, and for the opportunity to share more of my story! It’s been a fascinating journey so far…the movie deal is the cherry on a really yummy sundae. I don’t have many details that I’m permitted to share about the movie at this point. I can say it’s a lengthy process, and things are moving forward, which is exciting. It’s been fun to hear details about the budget they’ve set for the film, and brainstorming directors, screenwriters, and cast, as well as discussing potential filming locations.
I’ve been granted a rare behind the scenes access to the much of the process, for which I’m extremely grateful and excited. It’s like getting a personal tour of Willy Wonka’s Chocolate Factory, lol. I’m loving every minute. I can share that the film production company has optioned the first book, and has intentions of producing films for every book in the series. And speaking to that, as you may know, the Faerie Song series was originally intended to be a trilogy. But it very quickly became apparent to me that three books weren’t going to be enough to tell the story I wanted to tell. Or the story the characters wanted told. (they can be rather demanding, lol) So now it’s called the Faerie Song Saga, and it will include a minimum of six books in the series. And potentially, four films.
TWS:What inspired fire and ice?
Michele: I guess it’s deeply rooted in my love of all things fantasy. That combined with an interest in magic and faerie lore. When I first started writing Fire and Ice, it was with the intention of writing for a younger age group. I wrote the first draft and then set it aside, not sure what was missing, but certain it lacked something fundamental.
Subsequently, I finished the first draft around the time the Twilight books had come out. It pretty opened the door wide open for the “YA (young adult) and teen/adult genre crossover. Suddenly I knew what needed to change. I went back and revise the entire story, aging up the characters to fit the YA genre and adding in a stronger romance element.
From there it took on a life of its own. It makes me laugh when I look back. At the time I only planned to write this one book and nothing else. Now, I can’t seem to stop writing, lol. I’m addicted!
TWS:How long did it take you to write your books and where did you find the time to write?
Michele: Fire and Ice took the longest. Technically it was a six-year process when you combine the time I started it, the years I set it aside and the time I rewrote the final draft. The rest of my books, fortunately, haven’t taken anywhere near as long. I can write a first draft in about 4 or 5 months.
Drafting goes fairly quickly. It’s the editing and rewrites that take the most time. And since most of my books are on the longer side, I typically release a book a year. My readers and fans especially wish I could write faster, and so do I, but I struggle with maintaining quality while writing quickly. I’m getting a little quicker though.
For me, finding the time to write is like finding the time to eat. When its something you have to do (because it feeds your soul) you automatically make the time. There are some days when I don’t write at all, and others, I’ll write for ten hours at a time or more. It varies, and I try not to get too caught up in structuring time for my writing If it doesn’t happen one day for some reason or another—because of you know…life—I know that if I just wait it out I’ll get back into it again.
I think a big part of that is giving yourself permission to devote the time and letting whatever amount of time you can commit to, be okay. If I write for five minutes, that counts. If I write for an hour that counts. And if I write for twelve hours, that counts too.
Every word on the page adds to your total word count, so they matter. Of course, I’m partial to the days when I can write uninterrupted for hours on end, but that’s certainly not an everyday occurrence.
Reuniting with the Magical Bestselling Author Michele Barrow-Belisle
TWS: Michele, it is very easy to lose one’s passion once success is achieved. What has kept your passion of writing alive?
Michele: That’s an interesting question. I think for most creative people, they don’t lose their passion, they just channel it in a different direction. My writing is kept alive, because it really has a life of its own. I adore stories and have been making them up in my head for as long as I can remember.
When I’m standing in line at the grocery store, or people-watching at the mall, I’m drafting mini scenes in my head. Making up explanations for why that guy said what he did to the girl next to him, what might have come before and what could possibly come after.
So, part of the passion that fuels me, is that there’s literally no end to the possibilities. It became a little more challenging after I was first published. Before that, my writing was just for me. I always intended to share it with the world, but there’s nothing at stake really when you’re writing just for you.
It took some course-correcting to get used to the idea that I was writing for the world. And what I had to and still have to hold on to, is knowing that even though my work is being seen and judged, I’m still just writing for myself. I write what I love to read, what entertains me, and I write the stories the characters want told.
TWS: Did you ever have those days of writer’s block? What did you do to overcome those days?
Michele: I’m not sure that I have actually. Somedays I don’t know what to write, and it’s during those times that I’ll jump to another story or start something new entirely. But I’ve never experienced a block. There are just so many ways to overcome not know what to write.
Another great cure for writer’s block is reading. Without fail, diving into a fabulous novel inevitably leaves me itching to start writing again. Or playing the just imagine. Imagine if your character had only three days to live. What would they do? How would they react. It doesn’t matter if that’s part of the plot or not, it just helps to get the creative juices flowing again. And sometimes taking a break entirely for a few days is what’s needed.
I do that from time to time, and I never label it as being “blocked.” It’s just a change. I’ll binge watch some Netflix or go to the theater to see a movie…two things I love but don’t have much time for. Again, it’s more about giving yourself permission, and not getting caught in the cycle of frustration of not being able to come up with anything to write.
Letting go and relaxing is often the best cure. Just not for too long. Take a break, then dive back in. It’s not always easy, and yes, writing can be hard. Publishing…even harder sometimes. But it’s so rewarding to push through the tough parts and come out victoriously on the other side. Passion and tenacity definitely help.
TWS: Can we expect another book?
Michele: Definitely! I’m addicted, remember, lol. I actually have a new release that came out at the end of February. Melt is the fourth book in the Faerie Song Saga. The reading order is Fire And Ice, Bittersweet, Freeze, Melt, Burn, and Darkest Light. The last two are on the coming soon list. And, you’re the first one to hear this, but there will be a Faerie Song nomenclature/compendium, with illustrations, and additional stories and lore from the Nevermore. No idea when it will be finished, but it’s in the works.
Additionally, I’m working on an entirely new series with witches, called Written In Red. Also a standalone novel, a reverse fairytale retelling of Cinderella set in a post-apocalyptic world, called Cinder And Ash. And lastly, I’m working on the second book in my children’s picture book series, Pirate Wishes 1-2-3. The first one, Fairy Wishes 1-2-3 (if I Could Be you and You Could Be Me) was released last year.
That pretty much sums up what’s on my plate at the moment, but you never know when that might change, lol. Honestly, I’m just following my muse and seeing what unfolds.
Thank you so much, Julia, for inviting me to share my writing journey, it’s been a pleasure!

Hello and welcome back to the Write Styles where Attila Blága Shares How Writers Can Benefit From the Magic of Tarot. Attila, welcome to the Write Styles and thank you for this wonderful opportunity!
Attila Blága Shares How Writers Can Benefit From the Magic of Tarot
TWS: I understand that you have written poetry and you have even written some Sci-Fi too, would you care to give some background there?
Attila: Before we get started, please let me thank you for giving me this opportunity to present my work. Now, coming to your question, since I was a child I had artistical interests. I was drawing and painting, I had a journal and because my mom was a teacher and she had a typewriter, I wanted to have a typewriter myself!
Back then and in the dictatorial regime I have lived, all typewriters must have been registered to avoid typing manifestos. However, my mom managed to get me a typewriter, and I started writing short stories and poems. I started writing a novel or two but never finished any. As a teenager, singing in a garage band proved to be more attractive.
TWS: You are now coming from a somewhat controversial path… The Tarot! Could you explain what attracted you to the Tarot?
Attila: I have to confess something else first. I am Hungarian nationality, born and raised in Romania under a very strict dictatorial regime. In the school, I have only learned some Latin and ten years of Russian. I was quite reticent mainly because of political considerations, although I am the first to admit that the Russian culture is massive and impressive.
I have learned English listening to my mom’s vinyl records, singing along and translating the lyrics word by word. Later I have read Shakespeare and Hemingway in bilingual editions.
Then I started studying the Bible. I read it in three different languages and several different translations. Another important factor was the blogging. I had several blogs, at first in Romanian, then also in English and I have written tons of articles. These experiences all contributed to my development.
Regarding the Tarot, I started studying at the beginning of the ’90s and it was constantly an important aspect of my life. I have begun with Eliphas Levi, Hajo Banzhaf, and Aleister Crowley.
The Tarot is the key to the entire esoteric system. It is a very complex instrument. You can learn a lot about yourself and a lot about the Universe.
Unfortunately, people have, generally speaking, a very unrealistic idea of what the Tarot is. On the other hand, I am still concerned that my English is not good enough and sometimes people might misunderstand me.
TWS: I understand that you have just released your first copies of The Unified Esoteric Tarot Deck! Congratulations and we wish you the best there! How long did it take you to design those incredible cards and write the accompanying guidebook?
Attila: The design part was easy. Previously I have worked as art director and graphic designer for several companies. I have a quite consistent experience in desktop publishing (DTP), and as I mentioned, I had drawn and painted since very young age, it was a period in my life when I had lived exclusively from selling my paintings, so, the design part was easy.
There is one thing I have to confess. In my opinion, art is misleading, most of the artists who created or have been commissioned to create Tarot decks, are lacking esoteric knowledge and understanding.
This is one of the main reasons why I have created a very technical, strip down to the basic esoteric symbols Tarot deck. What really took time was the research and study.
Practically, I have worked more than twenty-five years to put all the pieces together and get to this point. The accompanying book is a short, summarised version of my entire work. I plan to publish it separately, and it will consist of three extra large volumes of work dealing with esotericism.
Tarot is built upon basic esoteric notions, principles and laws, and its foundation is Astrology and Numerology. These two esoteric sciences are also the foundation for Alchemy and Kabbalah, and subsequently creates the link between all these branches of esoteric sciences. For me, it was very important, the ‘meeting’ with P.D. Ouspensky and the discovery of the teachings of G.I Gurdjieff. Including ‘The Fourth Way’, was crucial to understanding both Tarot and human nature.
TWS: In terms of transformation, how do you think writers could benefit from the Tarot?
Attila: Tarot is an instrument of self-observation, self-remembering, and self-development. Knowing yourself will help you understand why you do some things, respectively why others act in a particular manner respectively mechanically.
Gurdjieff explained that we are living exposed to accidents and Tarot can be a useful instrument to prevent that and start doing things. Anybody who intends to do something may benefit from Tarot. You can formulate a clear goal and Tarot will help you to remember that goal and also can guide you to make the right decisions during the process.
Attila Blága Shares How Writers Can Benefit From the Magic of Tarot
TWS: I often hear of writers complaining of writer’s block or trying to pin down their novels. Do you believe it takes years of practice to master the Tarot or do you believe that any striving writer would be able to use the Tarot to benefit their writing skills?
Attila: I don’t think someone will ever master the Tarot. Each day for the last twenty-so years I discover something new, I understand some aspect that I previously oversaw. When someone thinks that knows enough, generally it means she or he does not understand a thing. I still have so much to learn.
TWS: Would you describe how the Tarot has benefitted yourcareer?
Attila: I do not read for myself, respectively extremely rarely. Definitively I would take better decisions in some matters if I would listen to what my inner voice says, respectively if I would read for myself regularly.
It is always much easier to advise and support others, then be truly objective regarding yourself. However, I learned to be detached, and in the last couple of years in important matters, I consult the cards.
TWS: Can we expect another deck from you or do you have other extraordinary plans?
Attila: Maybe I have some plans, but these are just plans, for now, so, I prefer not to talk about them. On the other hand, I have designed a couple of games based on Tarot, and I intend to bring those games to life.
I have a board game design and a tabletop game, both based on Tarot. They are both entertaining, but also may help someone to learn and understand the Tarot, and can be used for cast predictions.
TWS: Lastly, what mantra or one piece of advice do you essentially live by on a daily basis that you could share with our readers?
Attila: Think for yourself. Don’t take anything for granted. Many things we consider ‘facts’ are false and constitute a false reality around us. Check and re-check, think. It is essential not to learn and memorize mechanically ‘facts’, but to understand what they are and why they are, respectively how they work.
Someone may memorize that one plus one equals five, but what makes the difference is to understand what one means and why one plus one equals two in this, and for that matter, most probably in any other dimension.
