An interview with C.M. Sage, author of fantasy novel The Chronicles of Antecede: Lost and Found
Sometimes things are lost for a very long time…and then they are found.
Take Gracie for example, a woman who lost everything, her life, her family, even her name, but now she is a Cathalian warrior of Antecede blessed with powers, which aren’t yet fully realized. Her elder and nemesis, Donavan, finally granted the former professor an opportunity to train a new warrior. Her joy turns to shock when she meets her great, great, great, great grandson, Henry, accompanied by his wisecracking best friend, Milo. Henry recognizes his long dead ancestor right away, and it doesn’t take the Cathalians long to realize that this meeting was no accident.
Gracie and the warriors of Antecede soon discover that they aren’t the only ones laying a claim on their new charges. Menacing enemies from the South and their hired mercenary assassin, Revilan, the Bowman, have also taken an interest. Come along with Gracie, Donavan, and their fellow warriors on a perilous quest to protect all that is good and right from the evil that threatens it, and along the way discover what else was lost.

Excerpt from Lost and Found
Gracie tapped his shoulder, “Milo, did you notice anything unusual before I arrived to meet you? Did you see anyone on the shore, even from a far distance?” Milo reached down to ruffle Rosie’s ears before he answered, which was fortunate because at that exact moment a vicious arrow barely missed grazing his ear before flying by into the tall grass.
Gracie heard a sound like a muffled curse far off in the distance. The language wasn’t one she recognized. She knocked Milo flat to the ground, so that he was no longer a target and signaled for her little ones to stay down. Several more arrows flew in quick succession from the same direction. Gracie managed to pull a long dagger from under her coat before she also went down. Blue fell onto her back next to Gracie, a knife in each hand. Gracie looked at Obi, who knew what to do. He crawled away to search for and retrieve an arrow.
In the interim Blue and Gracie rose to their knees, keeping their heads down, and signaling for Milo to stay down. He nodded, and muttered in a shaky voice, “You don’t have to tell me twice. I may never get up!”
An Interview with C.M. Sage
-What group did you hang out with in high school?
The library geeks of course J
-What are you passionate about these days?
I’m passionate about doing my part to make the world a better place which includes taking action on climate change in whatever small ways I can. I’m passionate about women’s rights…I have been for many years. I’m passionate about making the world hopeful for everyone, not just a select few.
-If you had to do your journey to getting published all over again, what would you do differently?
I think most of my mistakes will probably help me in the end. That’s usually how life goes. I think the one thing that I would do differently is that I would have held myself to a tighter schedule…or any schedule at all lol.
-Ebook or print? And why?
Hopefully both. First an ebook and then print. I see advantages to both, and honestly there isn’t anything like flipping through the pages of a book and smelling that smell.
-What is your favorite scene in this book?
I can’t tell you J It might spoil the story.
