Interview with Ariffa Bevin, author of Kingdom Of The Sun
Kingdom of the Sun is a novella about the modern-day kingdom of Sooryan that faces issues that are very reflective of today’s society. Built upon the foundation and belief that education is the key to a triumphant and powerful country, Sooryan indeed becomes a successful kingdom. However, these ideals change throughout time as the kingdom’s leaders care more for status and competition. The story thus begins with Sooryan in political, academic, and economic turmoil, and it follows Helena, the one person who stands up for change, hope, honor, and happiness.
Who is Helena?
What genre is this book?
Kingdom of the Sun is for anyone who has been subject to the constraints, stereotypes, blindness, and contradictions of society. I also state that it is for the teachers and educators who love what they do and live to do it.
Tell us about some of the other characters in the book.
Aria: The nine-year-old son of Sadine. Aria’s level of understanding and maturity makes him a very close friend and ally of Helena whom he adores.
Queen Delilah Nightfall: Successor of Queen Daisy who desires power and respect but cannot seem to gain or earn it. Queen Delilah represents the person who sees themselves as above others and yet lives off of praise and acceptance. She also stands for the person who received their societal position by means other than hard work.
Tell us a bit about yourself.

How easily do new storylines come to you? If we give you four random words – Man, Woman, Airport, Darkness – can you give us a brief storyline?
