This week, VAMPIRE HUNTRESS: REBEL ANGELS VOLUME ONE will be released on pre-order and paperback.
I’ve been chatting to FIONA QUINN, USA Bestselling Author who interviewed me at THRILLWRITING.
I have a mage, a rebel angel, and a witch. It’s an epic war between the vampires and the angels.

- Propulsion is the driving sense every scene leads onto the next.
- Motivation is the gold to creating an anti-hero.
- Immersion the sense you’re living through the same adventure as the characters.
