Elfblood is the first book in the Elfblood Trilogy. It’s about a fourteen year old boy who must find a lost magic in order to save his world.
How about some insight into your main character: what does he/she do that is so special?
Charlie is an elfblood, one of mixed human and elven blood. He starts out as nothing but an orphan trying to survive a rough life, but through the course of the trilogy he discovers truths about himself that turn his life upside down.
What genre are your books and what draws you to this genre?
Fantasy. This has always been my favorite genre to read, so I think it’s only natural it’s the genre I would want to write in.
Who is your favorite character from your book and why?
Charlie. He’s just an all-around good person who tries to do what’s right. And even when he finds himself in control of great power, he doesn’t let it corrupt him.
How about your least favorite character? What makes them less appealing to you?
Thomas. He’s probably the most complicated character in the trilogy, but he does a lot of bad things out of jealousy and spite.
Which actor would you like to see playing the lead character from your most recent book?
Where do your ideas come from?
Elfblood started out as a short story inspired by an Edgar Allan Poe story. I wrote two beginnings and while trying to figure out which one to use, I realized I actually had the beginnings of two distinct stories. These stories grew into the Elfblood Trilogy and the Firebrand Trilogy. Other novels I’ve written have been inspired by song lyrics, Greek mythology, and one of my favorite book series.
What was the hardest thing about writing your latest book?
For me, getting that first draft down is always the hardest part of writing any novel.
What is the easiest thing about writing?
The final draft. By then I know all the characters and where their stories are going to end, so it’s only a matter of polishing everything up and making sure it all comes together like it should.
Is there anything else you would like to add that I haven’t included?
Book #2: The Silver Catacombs is also available for purchase and Book #3: City Of Magic releases in August.
What are you working on at the moment?
I have six projects in the works right now. The final novel in my high fantasy series Time of Shadows, two urban fantasies, an epic fantasy, and two YA fantasies.
