Legend tells of a sorceress, the Willow Woman, living within a white tower outside of the great city of Ethcabar, who owns a vast hoard of strange and curious items. If you bring her something precious to add to her Collection, she may grant your wish ... or curse you. But when a vile lord from the sixth hell learns of the Willow Woman's powerful gifts, he sends the demon Barbarus to bribe her. By peering into her magical Moon Well, the Willow Woman glimpses an astonishing future--one that promises to bring her joy, though it could plunge the world into war and chaos. A story of selfishness, friendship, betrayal, hope, and the search for God, The Feather and the Moon Well is a magical tale built within the fringe of Irish Mythology. It is the first novel by Shean Pao in the epic series, In the Brilliance of Sun.

About the Author
Shean Pao

Shean Pao read voraciously as a child, with fairy tales being her favorite. She finished writing her first book at the age of fourteen, which, along with numerous short stories, she lacked the confidence to try to publish. Fate then took her down a different path--she became a graphic designer. For the past twenty years she has worked for advertising agencies, printers, high-end real estate companies, and a book publishing company.

Pao returned to writing, taking online writing classes from New York Times bestselling author David Farland. Farland mentored Pao during the editing of The Feather and the Moon Well, then selected it to be the debut novel for the "David Farland Discovery Program" for new writers. The Feather and the Moon Well was released by WordFire Press in 2016.

She is happily married to a marvelous and talented photographer and graphic designer. They reside in Southern California with a brilliant (all parents call their children brilliant, don’t they?) African grey parrot named Zen, as well as a cuddly and beautiful sun conure, CJ.
