Interview with Merryn
Huge thanks to Merryn for the opportunity to be interview by them! It was such a great experience!
My first memory of a story I wrote goes back to when I was about eight or seven years old. It might have been inspired by the movie "Monsters & Co"., because it was about a kid running around a house and opening different doors, and entering different worlds. My fascination with portals and alternate realities goes back quite a long time!

‘The Lightbringer’ is not only a time-travel fantasy where magic is possible and epic battles happen. It is also an ode to nature, intertwined with elements of magical realism drawn from Viking sagas, Roman mythology and ancient history. At the young age of 15 years old, Sassoon came up with the story by reading myths, legends and fantasy books such as Narnia and Eragon. As Sassoon became a dedicated environmental researcher, he incorporated the experiences from his many travels to remote places into the novel. ‘The Lightbringer’ thus became a novel built on mysticism and the environment.
Read my interview with Ramona Portelli!
"If you have an idea for a great new story, go for it! It’s easy to doubt yourself and wonder if your book will ever be good enough, but sometimes the best thing to do is let other people see what you’ve created. After ten years of writing, I took a chance and wrote an email to AuthorHouse. Two months later my book was published."
(excerpt from Chapter 4 of The Lightbringer)
Because I can't do this in person yet, I thought I’d read a passage from one of the first chapters of my debut novel “The Lightbringer: Through the Elder Stone”. This is from chapter 4, Blueberry Mead.
