Before I tell you more about The First Lie, Virginia King and the giveaway, here’s a question I asked Virginia about her book.

Your character Selkie Moon was named after a Celtic fairy tale. Why did you choose this folklore? How has it added to the supernatural element of the book?

The selkie myth has haunted me for many years. When I worked for a children’s publisher, I helped put together a collection of myths from around the world and I got hooked by their symbolism. The selkies are the seal people who peel off their skins to dance in the moonlight on human legs. In the myth, a fisherman falls in love with one of the selkies as he watches her dancing and steals her skin so she must marry him. She’s never quite herself and when she finds where he’s hidden her skin seven years later, she returns to the sea without looking back. The First Lie is not a retelling of the selkie myth but I’ve played with it to add supernatural layers to the mystery of a modern woman. Selkie Moon has run away to Hawaii and landed in the middle of a series of bizarre happenings that are tangled up with both Celtic and Hawaiian mythology. Selkie has been living a lie without knowing it – The First Lie. And just like the selkie whose pelt was stolen, her very life depends on finding what she’s lost – by returning to the place where it all began, without looking back.


Summary: The First Lie

Selkie Moon is a woman on the run. In a mad dash for freedom she’s escaped her life in Sydney to start over again in Hawaii. But her refuge begins to unravel and she’s running from something else entirely. A voice in a dream says that someone is trying to kill her. Not that she’s psychic, no way. But the messages and threats escalate until she’s locked in a game of cat and mouse with a mysterious stalker. Entangled in Celtic and Hawaiian mythologies, the events become so bizarre and terrifying that her instinct is to keep running. But is she running from her past? Or her future?


About the Author: Virginia King

Virginia King has lived most of her life in Sydney, Australia, but has travelled to many places. She’s been a teacher, an unemployed ex-teacher, a producer of audio-books, a writer of over 50 children’s books, a writing workshop presenter and an award-winning publisher. The First Lie is her debut novel for adults, the first mystery in the Selkie Moon series. These days Virginia lives with her husband in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney overlooking a valley full of birds. Most mornings she does some yoga, watches the French news (even understands some of it), then sits down and writes till late in the afternoon. Bliss.
