Posts Tagged ‘The Lost Chord’

Author Lyndi Alexander is up! Her character, Bee Warrick, comes from the YA fantasy, The Lost Chord.

Clutching her crystal ball-music box, Bee Warrick steps cautiously into the ballroom. She winces at the volume of the music and takes a moment to calm herself. “It looks like fairyland,” she whispers to herself. She watches the patterns develop as dancers in pairs swirl around the floor, and finally catches the rhythm of the music. Its joy makes her smile, and she continues inside to join the party.


Character Questions

Who are the most dangerous people in your world? I think fathers are. They hurt people. My father always takes my brother to visit and never me.

Tell us about the greatest mystery in your world. People are. They say they don’t understand autism. I don’t know what is autism — I am not a thing that starts with A. I am a girl. I don’t know how I cross dimensions. It is just the music. One minute I am at home, and then I am in some other world. Maybe some people think that is magic. But I travel with six friends from different dimensions, and we are good people.

Author Questions

How do you handle multiple points of view in a story? I grew up on TV shows with large ensemble casts, and I love to tell a story the same way. I separate narration by chapters, because I feel that’s less confusing for the reader. It adds depth to the story, trying to keep track of who knows what, and what the consequences will be.

When did you know you are a writer? When I was 8 years old and wrote my first story, about how my cat caught and killed a rabbit. Fortunately, most of my current stories are less tragic.


The Lost Chord

A poisonous wave is spreading disease and discord across the eleven known universes. Seven special people, known as Keys, must strike the Lost Chord in order to restore the balance. Among those Keys is Bee Warrick, an autistic teenager from Earth who has traveled between the realms for years without realizing it. Can Bee help the Conductor find the other Keys before a bitter enemy strikes the wrong chord and shatters the universes?
