Hello and thank you for visiting! I’m Cairn Rodrigues, author of the Song of Solstice series of books. For the last couple of years, my books were self published. It’s exciting to announce that book one, The Last Prospector, is being published by Booktrope. While there’s a certain ramshackle charm to my attempts at book editing, publishing and promotion, I’m happy that a team of professionals will be there to make Prospector shine.
I’ve been writing all my life. For many years, it was confined to menus. Don’t roll your eyes, writing a good menu is hard. I’d like to see Stephen King do it. A lot of my adult life was spent in the hospitality industry. From bartender to restaurant owner, dishwasher if need be, food was my life for a long time. After a big life shift, I decided to write a story that was everything I ever wanted in a story.
Turns out, I want a lot 😉 With three books done and counting, it’s still a genuine pleasure to enter Solstice, to tell everyone about Solstice. The feedback I’ve gotten from readers is extremely gratifying. The vote of confidence from Booktrope ain’t bad either.
I hope you have the chance to visit Solstice, to meet the people and get lost in the story. Until then, you can find me here, prattling on about silly things. Life is a journey and travellers are always welcome!
