UFI welcomes M.M. Shelley Author of Mishap and Retribution. Thanks for Joining us!!
HI Everyone, I’m M.M. Shelley and I would like to thank UFI for having me as a guest today as I share with you my book; Mishap and Retribution.
So please pour yourself a cup of your favorite Latte and if you’re at work, hang up your “On Break” shingle as we take five.
Many have asked why the islands of Hawaii are the setting for my fantasy adventure and my response has always been, why not? It’s the perfect place. I was fortunate to spend some time on the islands, and even more that I have made really great friends who have invited me back to stay with them. The people of Hawaii love stories; their culture is filled with some really good ones. Some of them are based on the Hawaiian goddess, Pele.
Pele plays a major part in Mishap & Retribution; after all it does take place on her islands, so how could I not include her? A quick note about Pele; she wasn’t actually born on the islands, in the stories told of her she traveled from another Polynesian Island and made them her home.
As a goddess Pele has had many loves and some of them with mortal men. Sometimes a child or two follow, as the grandmother to cousins Kye and Kana’i, she can be very protective and sometimes over bearing.
Here are a few things you should know about Pele:
*She is the ruler of the Hawaiian Islands
*Fire is her main power; she controls volcanoes and its lava.
*She works everyday to maintain control of the islands over the other gods and goddess and is constantly at war.
