Emily Primo PicAbout the Author

Emily Guido was inspired to pen The Light-Bearer Series because one day she got an idea of two characters that needed to have their story told. Not ever dreaming a week later she would have over a 100,000 words written. When Emily writes, it is similar to watching a movie. She pictures the characters in her head going through vivid descriptions of each scene. There are so many nuances racing through her mind, she cannot type fast enough. The novels Charmeine, Mactus, Accendo, and Seditious are the continuation of the wonderful adventures of the inhabitants of The Castle Charmeine and available in all book venues. Emily is currently writing Ransom, and Conundrum, the fifth and sixth novels in The Light-Bearer Series.

Attracted to Fine Arts since she was little, Emily danced, studied violin, opera, musical theatre, acting, while being an avid reader. She has her graduate degree as a Master of Business Administration, and works for a Fortune 500 company near New York City.

The Light-Bearer Series is a Contemporary, Young Adult, and Paranormal Romance, with Vampires, Angels, Action, Historical Adventure and original struggles between Good and Evil.

Why do I write?

I couldn’t get this nagging story out of my head.

Books 1 to 3Weekend before Thanksgiving in 2011, I began to write and couldn’t stop. I didn’t sleep for 48 hours. In a week, I had over 100,000 words.

Not being a novelist or a writer, I asked my husband what qualified as a novel. He laughed, “Honey, you have yourself not only a novel, but a series of novels.”

The first three books, Charmeine, Mactus, and Accendo, were simple to write.

6 Conumdrum Book Cover5Ransomperf5.500x8.500.inddBelieve it or not . . .

Writing the next three novels in The Light-Bearer Series was pretty much the same way with Seditious, Ransom, and Conundrum.

People I meet, and my colleagues at work, can’t believe I’m a writer.  It doesn’t become real to them until they see my business card or the book I have handy.

If I could have a dime for all the times I’ve heard, “How did you come up with the idea?” I would be able to pay off my school loan!

But really, do you have to know?


You just have to make the story come to life for yourself and your readers.

It doesn’t matter a hill of beans to me that The Light-Bearer Series is Fantasy and Paranormal.

The characters are what mattered the most to me… Charmeine, Tabbruis, Shane, Dmitri, Neal Thomas etc., nothing else did. I wanted to do right by them. I wanted to give the reader an exact account of how moody Tabbruis can get, and how silly Charmeine’s jokes are.

11-5-2013-9-31-32-am1The Light-Bearer Series centers around two very star-crossed, opposites . . . Tabbruis is a Blood-Hunter who meets Charmeine, who is a Light-Bearer.

The two races are supposed to have a deep-seeded hatred of each other.

However, when Tabbruis and Charmeine meet, they are anything but repulsed and struggle to stay together.

I have to confess, there are two characters in The Light-Bearer Series which are very easy to write for because they are part of me — Charmeine, (heroine) for her faith, acceptance and kindness, and Tabbruis, (hero) for always looking on the darker side from years of being lonely and too much into his self. All the other characters have little aspects of my psyche and beliefs.

How do I make fantasy sound on the fringe of believable?

imagesCA5VWRBNSandraNo one is going to believe my fantasy world exists at the Castle Charmeine, if I don’t have an edge of common facts and beliefs.

Two of my characters are Shane and Sandra, who served in the US War in Iraq. The couple needed to have those skills and characteristics learned in the US Army and being in harm’s way for extended period.

I guess for me, being a fantasy writer is a joy, because the writing can go wherever your mind tells it to.

I do include Heavenly and Hellish aspects in my books. However, the novels are not about religion. It is about love . . . acceptance and steadfast.

I know that the genre of Paranormal Romance is not everyone’s cup of tea.

I’m not going to say I don’t care if people read my book or not.

However, it only takes one . . .

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAI’m always wondering what people think about my little Paranormal Family at the Castle Charmeine.

I don’t usually read reviews.

I just keep my head above water and use my friends for support.

YOU, MY FRIENDS, are my lifelines!

Lots of love, Emily
