Fionne Foxxe Farraday, author of the science fiction series, Darzik: Mates of the Alliance, Book 2Introducing our first guest, Fionne Foxxe Farraday, the renowned author behind the captivating “Mates of The Alliance” Science Fiction series. Today, she joins us to delve into her latest book, “Darzik, Mates of the Alliance: Book 2 by Fionne Foxxe FarradayDarzik,” and provides a glimpse into the forthcoming releases. Fionne has garnered numerous awards and received glowing reviews for her debut novel, “Kairn,” even earning the prestigious “International Author Award.” Currently collaborating with screenwriters and diligently working on her tenth installment in the Sci-Fi series, Fionne’s literary prowess is undeniable.

“Darzik,” the newest addition to her collection, has garnered exceptional acclaim and achieved the remarkable feat of becoming an Amazon “#1 Hot New Release!” Despite her remarkable success in the literary world, Fionne also dedicates herself to the pulmonary and critical care medicine field. In March 2020, due to medical issues, Farraday was on mandatory medical leave and relieved of her duties and responsibilities. As an ardent reader, she soon exhausted her booklist and grew weary of television, ultimately leading her to conceptualize the story that would eventually become “KAIRN: Mates of the Alliance.”

Amid the grim days of the initial Covid-19 wave, Fionne returned to the ICU, driven by her dedication to her work and the weight of immeasurable loss. Writing became her refuge, helping her navigate the demanding circumstances and providing a fictional haven of happy endings—a rare commodity in a Covid-19-infested ICU. Drawing from her medical background and with deep admiration for her family members who served in World War II and Vietnam, Farraday’s novels pay tribute to all medical and military personnel who make sacrifices that enable us to lead our lives. Outside of her literary pursuits, Fionne is a loving mother, grandmother, and passionate animal advocate, calling Cookeville, TN, her home.
