Neliem by Clare DiLiscia
Publication Date: May 21, 2019
the population of the island of Madera are dead, killed by an
unforgiving and indiscriminate plague. Oriana dreams of escaping her
life of ruthless cruelty from the people who now rule over those who
remain. No telling whom the plague will strike next, Oriana means to
find freedom for herself and her people. Drawing strength from
ancient tales of her enemy, young Oriana transforms herself from
victim to warrior with the help of a mysterious and powerful dagger
given to her by a kind and dying boy.
later, during her enemy’s betrothal ritual, Ezra, a boy she has
never before seen, selects her
as his mate. With servitude her only option, Oriana accepts the
offer. Whisked away to a seemingly perfect world, Oriana discovers
sinister secrets at every turn, including the identity of Tristan, a
boy with whom she shares an undeniable but impossible connection.
would a boy she doesn’t know wish her to be his betrothed? Why does
she feel such a strong pull toward a stranger? Someone in Ezra’s
family not only knows the answer to both those questions, but also
about the dagger Oriana possesses. He will do anything to stop the
union. Now, with everything on the line, Oriana turns inward to find
the strength she needs to seize the full power of the dagger so that
she may protect herself and save her people.
in Queens, New York, Clare Di Liscia moved to California as a small
child and grew up in the hills by Dodger Stadium. Constantly roaming
the woods, she took to embellishing on the stories of Peter Rabbit
and Jemima Puddle Duck to fill her imagination. To her horror she
soon realized there was no way to fit a miniature tuxedo on a frog.
Fortunately in sixth grade, Clare won a short story contest with the
grand prize of fifteen happy meals. She would like to point out that
two of those meal tickets were missing by the time her mother handed
over her prize. After traveling extensively throughout South America
and the Caribbean, Clare attended KU Leuven, in Belgium for
University where she studied Dutch and French. Clare graduated from
Cal State Northridge Film School, earning Dean’s List recognition
with a BA in TV/Film. In 2006 she placed in the prestigious Academy
of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Nicholl Fellowship in
Screenwriting beating out 4700 other applicants. After joining SCBWI,
Clare won 1st place HM in the Sue Alexander for her YA novel, now
reading Twilight in 2011, my husband challenged me to write a novel.
I’m a screenwriter and took him up on the dare. I mean, how hard
could it be? I wrote after I put the kids to bed, from 9:30PM to
2-3:00AM every day for a month. WHERE THE WATER TAKES US, inspired by
my own family history. It was the stepping stone to my writing
career. And I still love that book.
set to release 5/21/2019 is my 8th book. I was once again inspired by
my family history to write about Oriana, a girl who fashions herself
after her enemies legendary hero, NELIEM, who defied death. It’s a
girl empowerment fantasy with ancestral ghosts and forbidden love.
there a message in NELIEM that you want readers to grasp?
Love overcomes any obstacle life throws at you. Forgiveness is
paramount to peace.

you share a little of your current work with us?
currently going through a final edit in a modern day HUCK FINN MG.
It’s an adventure with two unlikely heroes who stubble across a
hate crime and go on the run. It deals with poverty and
discrimination, plus has tons of humor. I hope to find the right
you have any advise for other writers?
Write. Go to as many writers conference and workshops that you can.
Pay for professional critiques, AFTER you’ve shared your work in
your writer’s group. Asking family to review it is pointless. Take
a chance. And most of all, develop thick skin.
