DE MODE Magazine

The World’s Leading Journal For Entrepreneurial Success, Fashion & Lifestyle. For Literature & Arts

THE INTERVIEW :

  1. Congratulations on being featured on the front cover of DE MODE! How does it feel to have your work recognised in such a prestigious way?

 

I’m honoured and thrilled to be featured on the front cover of DE MODE magazine, featuring such diverse and fascinating content and reaching thousands of readers worldwide. I’m excited that many more readers will learn about my book, and I hope they find it as fascinating as I do. My book has been shown previously in DE MODE’s March 2023 issue, making it doubly special, and I’m very grateful for this fantastic opportunity.

 

  1. “The Space Traveller’s Lover” has garnered several accolades, including being a Book Excellence Award Finalist, Global Book Awards Winner, and BookFest Awards Winner. How do these achievements impact your writing journey?

 

The first time I won an award, I was in disbelief as I had not expected it. But then there were several awards after that, including the most recent Outstanding Creator and Literary Titan Awards. It has been overwhelming but, at the same time, revealing and rewarding. The judges’ praise and encouragement uplifted my spirits and convinced me to keep writing.

 

 

  1. Your book was previously listed in DE MODE’s “Unputdownable Books for 2023.” What do you think sets “The Space Traveller’s Lover” apart and makes it so engaging for readers?

 

Writing “The Space Traveller’s Lover”, I always had the readers in mind; how would they feel? what would they do in similar situations? That is why the reviews from my readers are so special to me.

Here is a passage from one of my reader’s reviews that sums up the overall theme of my book reviews:

What sets this novel apart is its ability to balance intense emotional drama with a compelling sci-fi narrative. Williams’ skilful world-building and imaginative storytelling keep the pages turning, while her attention to character development ensures a deeply engaging and heartwarming journey.”

  1. Balancing a successful career as a software manager and a passion for writing can be challenging. How do you manage to find time for both, and do you see any connections between your professional and creative pursuits?

 

Finding time was difficult initially, but when I became determined to publish my book, I followed a strict schedule and stuck to it. There is a deep connection between my professional and creative pursuits because I used everything I had learned in my scientific and technical career in many areas of my narrative. The descriptions of the alien technology, invasion and world-building are all based on scientific facts with futuristic twists and thought-provoking ideas, making the story otherworldly but believable.

 

  1. Your educational background includes a BSc Honours degree in Nuclear Engineering and Information Technology diplomas. How have these diverse academic experiences influenced your writing, especially in the science-fiction genre?

 

Having a science background definitely helps me to write a science-fiction story. A passion for technology and an insatiable curiosity make writing immensely enjoyable as I explore the fantastic mysteries of our physical world and let my imagination run free. The creation and pondering process is so rewarding that it compels me to keep writing.

 

  1. Living in Cambridge, United Kingdom, with a family, how does your personal life and environment inspire or influence your writing?

 

Living in Cambridge, United Kingdom, where all my scientific heroes, for example, Isaac Newton, Charles Darwin and Stephen Hawkins, lived or worked, is very special to me; I usually visit museums, read their books and get inspired by their life stories.

My family is very supportive, especially when I spend hours and hours in front of the computer. They love my stories, read them, and give me feedback.

 

  1. You’re known for your interest in science, technology, and ancient alien theories. How do these interests find their way into your storytelling, and how do you strike a balance between scientific accuracy and creative imagination?

 

As I write, I let my imagination flow without limits and write about all my ideas as they appear in my mind, however implausible. Afterwards, I organise them into a central theme and arrange the story arc. My scientific background and travelling experiences to archaeological sites help me in my journey of writing science-fiction stories. While trying to explain the mysteries of our time, I speculate about situations that could come true even if we have not experienced them yet, always considering the concepts and scientific laws we have discovered so far.

 

  1. “The Space Traveller’s Lover” has achieved international success, becoming an Amazon #1 bestseller in the YA War & Military Fiction category. What do you think resonates with readers in this particular genre, and did you expect such widespread popularity?

 

The extraterrestrial invasion, robotics, artificial intelligence, limitless energy sources, and the aliens’ war tactics and strategies are unique in my book, all seamlessly interacting to give an out-of-this-world experience that leaves the readers thinking long after they finish reading the book. I never expected this popularity, but I am delighted that my book inspires far more readers than I thought.

  1. Your journey is often cited as a testament to the idea that it’s never too late to pursue one’s passions. Can you share a pivotal moment when you decided to prioritise your love for writing alongside your career in software management?

 

Rather than a pivotal moment, it was an accumulation of ideas and plans that kept revolving in my mind until they compelled me to do something about it. It was a journey of discovery of who I truly am, culminating in the mesmerising story of “The Space Traveller’s Lover”.

 

 

  1. As an award-winning software manager, how does your analytical mindset contribute to your approach to storytelling and crafting intricate plots in your novels?

 

In my work, I have to apply an analytical and logical approach to resolve complex problems and write detailed technical documentation to share and review new ideas and architectural designs. I use the same approach in storytelling, with the only difference being that I introduce mystery and suspense into the narrative while taking the readers on an futuristic adventure through the characters’ wishes, conflicts and emotions.

 

  1. Watching the night sky, investigating ancient alien theories, and chasing total solar eclipses are mentioned as some of your hobbies. How do these activities feed into your creativity and influence the themes in your writing?

 

Watching the night sky, investigating ancient alien theories, and chasing total solar eclipses have taken me to unique places on our wonderful planet. I have witnessed nature at its most beautiful and acquired so much knowledge from these endeavours that most of these concepts are an integral part of the story of “The Space Traveller’s Lover”.

 

  1. How do you handle the pressure and expectations that come with achieving such high recognition for your work, particularly when working on future projects?

Of course, the stakes are higher now than when I started. I wouldn’t want to disappoint my readers who are eagerly expecting the second part of “The Space Traveller’s Lover”. I am aiming for a higher target now,  but I am sure that my second published book will also be a success, given the wealth of experience I gained after writing my first.

 

  1. Can you share any upcoming projects or works in progress that your readers can look forward to?

 

I am currently working on the second novel in what I plan as a series for “The Space Traveller’s Lover”. Many storylines from my first book are waiting to be explored and developed further, and I am gathering all these ideas and doing a scrapbook with pictures and texts, which I intend to put together for the sequel.

 

  1. In the rapidly evolving landscape of literature, how do you see the role of science fiction in inspiring readers and shaping conversations about technology and the future?

 

Science fiction has always played a role in shaping ideas and concepts for future technical breakthroughs. For example, the ideas of Earth’s orbital satellites and android robots first appeared as science fiction stories and are now an established reality. As we unleash our imaginations, we can explore technically impossible concepts and develop innovative solutions we had never heard of before. That is why science fiction is so important as an inspirational source for the next generation of scientific discoveries.

 

  1. Your book has been celebrated in multiple award categories. How do you see the intersection of romance and science fiction in your work, and what do you believe makes this combination appealing to a wide audience?

 

In “The Space Traveller’s Lover”, I wanted to explore the specific case of alien romance,  impossible love, and fatal attraction within the science-fiction background. Once aliens meet humans, their different origins can play a decisive part in a unique plot that could not possibly happen had the lovers been only humans.

As the readers explore the story’s fascinating world and experience intense emotions through the main character, Erin, they are drawn into a thought-provoking, suspenseful narrative that ultimately takes them into their own journey of self-discovery and their hopes for a better future.

Even non-science-fiction fans find the book both profound and entertaining, as the story’s exploration of love, humanity, and survival makes for a compelling, unputdownable reading.

The Space Traveller’s Lover – Journey into Parallel Worlds

Parallel Worlds: Science Fiction Elements in “The Space Traveller’s Lover” – An Analysis

In the rich tapestry of “The Space Traveller’s Lover,” science fiction seamlessly interlaces with the human experience, propelling the narrative into uncharted territories. The story revolves around Erin, the main character, as she becomes entwined in a cosmic dance of parallel worlds and extraterrestrial encounters. This exploration delves into how the infusion of science fiction elements enhances the overall plot and themes, adding a touch of the extraordinary to Erin’s profound human journey.

Embarking on the Extraordinary:

Erin takes centre stage as she encounters the extraordinary—an alien entity that challenges the boundaries of the known world. Williams deftly navigates the introduction of science fiction elements, seamlessly blending them with Erin’s grounded reality. The ordinary becomes a gateway to the extraordinary, beckoning readers on a journey transcending conventional boundaries.

Humanizing the Unknown:

In a departure from traditional science fiction narratives, Williams significantly emphasizes Erin’s relatable humanity as she grapples with the unknown. Erin’s reactions to the science fiction elements mirror the natural responses of any human faced with the unimaginable. This deliberate grounding of the story ensures accessibility and resonance, appealing to readers who may not typically engage with traditional science fiction tropes.

Love Across Dimensions:

The introduction of parallel worlds and alien encounters serves as a nuanced backdrop to the overarching theme of love. Erin’s profound connection with Rothwen spans dimensions, emphasizing the universal concept that love transcends all boundaries—even those imposed by the laws of physics. This unique fusion of science fiction and deeply human emotion elevates the narrative, providing readers with a bridge between the speculative and the intimately personal.

An Emotional Odyssey:

While navigating the uncharted territories of the unknown, “The Space Traveller’s Lover” remains firmly rooted in the emotional landscape of Erin’s character. Williams utilizes science fiction elements to delve into the profound depths of human emotions when confronted with the inexplicable. The narrative seamlessly intertwines wonder, fear, and love, crafting a tapestry that captivates readers on both intellectual and emotional levels.

The Power of Belief:

Woven into the story’s fabric is a subtle exploration of the malleability of reality and the transformative power of belief. Erin’s unwavering conviction in her experiences challenges the conventional boundaries of science fiction, prompting readers to question the very nature of reality. The narrative posits that, faced with the unknown, belief becomes a potent force capable of transcending the limitations of scientific understanding.

“The Space Traveller’s Lover” invites readers to embark on an adventure where the extraordinary and the ordinary harmoniously coexist through Erin’s eyes. Omara Williams crafts a narrative that defies expectations, plunging into the unfathomable depths of love across dimensions by seamlessly merging science fiction elements with Erin’s relatable human experiences. In this tale of parallel worlds, readers will discover not only the enduring spirit of the human condition but also the inexorable pull of the unknown.

The Space Traveller’s Lover Latest Book Review by Literary Titan

Dear Readers,

I’d like to share the Latest Review by Literary Titan Book Review:

AN IMMERSIVE AND VIVIVID UNIVERSE

The Space Traveller’s Lover, by Omara Williams, is a science fiction romance that features both aliens and humans. Rothwen is an elite soldier, one who is always the vanguard and never shows mercy. But before he leads a vengeance-fuelled invasion to wipe out Earth, he finds himself intrigued by one human–Erin. When Erin finds herself transformed into an alien on her sixteenth birthday, she is torn between her desire for Rothwen and her loyalty to humans.

Omara Williams excels in world-building in this young adult novel. Although I feel the initial exposition is a bit heavy, it sets the stage for a vividly imagined universe. Williams’ imagination shines, particularly in the alien landscapes. The characters are relatable, with Erin and Sam authentically embodying their teenage roles. Rothwen and his fellow soldiers add a layer of complexity, their moods hinting at deeper, unexplored backstories, leaving room for further instalments. The dynamics among the human characters, including the tension between Sam’s sister and Erin, and the protective stance of Erin’s adoptive father, are intriguing, though I believe they may leave some readers curious for more depth. Erin’s journey is a true adventure, culminating in a transformative discovery of her true self.

The Space Traveller’s Lover, by Omara Williams, dazzles with its wonderful world-building, creating an immersive and vivid universe. Williams’ strength in crafting an enchanting setting makes this a noteworthy read for fans of imaginative sci-fi. I highly recommend it to anyone looking to explore new and promising authors in the science fiction/fantasy genre.

Here it’s an excerpt from the Exclusive Interview …

  1. Omara, how did your childhood love for science and tech influence your writing in “The Space Traveller’s Lover”?

I read many scientific books from an early age to satisfy my infinite curiosity and zest for knowledge, so I gathered a wealth of information over the years. In addition, I have visited unique places on this beautiful planet while on my astronomy projects. Eventually, I was able to seamlessly merge all these experiences into the beautiful story of “The Space Traveller’s Lover”.

 

  1. How did everyday inspirations, like cloud shapes and constellations, find their way into your storytelling?

 

I can make up any shapes I wish from the cloudy and the starry sky. I enjoy working on my imagination in such a manner. Every time I look up at the sky, daytime or nighttime, I wonder about the mysteries of our times. Then, I try to answer them, creating and writing stories along the way.

 

  1. How did you go from writing occasionally to setting goals and taking your writing seriously?

I think it was a question of finding the time, the confidence, and the self-belief. While I was busy studying, working, and building a family, becoming an author was at the bottom of my priority list. First, I worked on lifting my confidence and self-belief, and then finding the time was easy. I made sure to make a writing schedule and stick to it.

 

  1. Your background in Nuclear Engineering and IT is unique. How do these fields seep into your sci-fi writing?

 

My Nuclear Engineering and Software Engineering background is deeply embedded in the concepts presented in “The Space Traveller’s Lover”. I used my physics, chemistry and computer knowledge to build the fascinating alien world and the drama that unfolded. Ultimately, I created an imaginary world full of outrageous otherworldly landscapes, but with the real possibility that it could all be true.

 

  1. Investigating ancient alien theories and watching the night sky, how do they influence your book themes?

I am very interested in astrobiology, particularly in the question: “Are we alone in the Universe?” There are so many theories and conjectures about this mystery. That is why I have read so many books about it and visited mysterious ancient ruins. This question has been in the human mind since early humans looked at the heavens thousands of years ago. Still, the question remains as intriguing as it ever was. That is why I used this very question as one of the central themes when I decided to write my science-fiction book.

 

  1. “The Space Traveller’s Lover” is set in a future Earth facing ecological collapse. What inspired this backdrop?

Our planet’s climate is changing; there is no doubt about that. It has also changed in the past, but the difference now is that the human population is nearing eight billion. We should not underestimate our impact on the planet or the planet’s impact on us.

How will this climate change ultimately affect our environment and civilisation? I cover a possible scenario in my book “The Space Traveller’s Lover” to make us consider the potential consequences. My goal is to make the readers think about our place, duty, and responsibilities on our beautiful planet.

 

  1. Can you introduce us to the Rom-Ghenshar aliens and what drives them in your story?

The Rom-Ghenshars belong to what we classify as Type III civilisation. Their advanced technology is beyond our current scientific understanding. The aliens’ unlimited control of energy sources and mastery of the space-time fabric drive them to conquer the Universe as we know it. When the Rom-Ghenshars arrive at our planet, on the brink of collapse due to disruptive climate change, their takeover should be effortless. To Rothwen, the powerful alien soldier who shows no mercy, it is a matter of adding yet another victory to his accolades. But when he meets Erin, a bright and enigmatic human, he puts all his plans on hold. What he does next, and at every step of his planetary conquest, shapes the storyline in “The Space Traveller’s Lover”.
