STUNNING AUTHOR INTERVIEW – Vampires, Domination and James Dean


Rosemary A Johns - Fantasy Author

Sometimes as an author you have chats with magazines, interviewers or TV hosts where everything just clicks. They get you, the book and more than that: how to challenge it.

You discover something about writing, yourself and life, as well as discussing your work in a far more fascinating way than you ever could alone.

That’s what happened with Scaffolding Magazine.

Freedom, domination, terrorism, my childhood, writing tips and James Dean… 

And did I mention how gorgeous the podcast is..?

FANTASY INTERVIEW – New Magazine Launches on 17th

To celebrate the launch of the literary Scaffolding Magazine this Friday, I was interviewed by Ellie Maloney.

We chinwagged about vampires, a divided paranormal London, gender, writing, fantasy and science fiction…

I love the clips from vampires movies and TV shows, interspersed between the other visuals – blinding.

Light is a British vampire – not in doubt from the very first line of Blood Dragons: ‘You know those vampire myths? Holy water, entry by invitation only and sodding crucifixes? Bollocks to them.’

I wanted a fantasy novel with a British vampire front and centre. Neither the love interest. Nor the sidekick. But the antihero at its beating heart.

A Londoner born in the Victorian age, Light takes on the persona of a 1960s Rocker. He loves only two things: his Triton motorbike – ‘a sodding scarlet slash of beauty…and my bloody god’ and his Ace of Spades leather jacket. Unless you include Ruby: ‘my red-haired devil, Author, muse, liberator…my gorgeous nightmare.’ Or Kathy… And then there’s Grayse…

But being boldly British – a mix of Victorian and 1960s – Light has a way of speaking, which is all his own.
