The Pale Huntress (Author Interview)

The Pale Huntress looks like a great book.  What can you tell us about it?

It is a dark fantasy following the tale of a monster hunter, who happens to be a Dhampir, a child of a Immortal vampire and a human being. It is the start of a journey for Angela Dragos, our main character, as she discovers more about who she is, who she can trust, and just what she needs to do in order to overcome not just the monsters she hunts, but the monster inside of her.

Any plans to turn it into a series?

Absolutely. As mentioned before this book is only the beginning; the world of Lunokean, Angela’s history and her new partnership with Jacob Tepes as they work for The Black Hand. I have a few of the books written out already, but they are far from ready to be considered the true continuation.

That’s an amazing cover.  Can you tell us about it?

It was done by adeebasial0, a graphic’s artist from Fiverr. As you can see, you see our main characters, Angela and Jacob, on a rooftop of the city of Irondell, all under the gaze of the vampire they hunt in this book. It gives a little foresight into what exactly they will be dealing with.

Can you tell us a little about Angela Dragos?

Other than the fact that she is a Dhampir, she is a very reserved and private woman with an unknown past at least to anyone else. She is very independent as well, hence why she will have to overcome not only her pride but her distrustfulness of mankind who for the most part scorn her existence almost as bad as the vampires themselves. All she knows is what she is not and it will take a lot for her to learn to let someone else have her back and I always look forward to revealing little hints as the books go on to reveal more and more about her.

What scene or section did you have the most fun writing?

That’s a tough one, this story had been a blast to write through and through. But if I had to pick one it would most likely be between when Jacob introduces himself to Angela for the first time and how she treats him, and the final battle which I won’t go into detail but I thoroughly enjoyed the test both physically and mentally that Angela and Jacob go through in order to finally slay the Immortal Vampire.

What inspired the idea for the book?

I was in the mood to write a new fantasy novel and I knew I wanted it to be about monster hunting, my only problem being how I was going to make it unique without it sounding like every other monster-hunting story. When I decided on who Angela Dragos was going to be, I wrote down her character, how old she was, what specific dates defined her and molded her, and through it I ended up creating the world of Lunokean and the lore within it, which pretty much wrote the story for itself, and it only got bigger the more I went into it. In short, I wanted to write a good monster hunting story, and focus on the effects of vampirism as a way to explore how it is for even most people who come from completely different backgrounds, heritages with family, or even experiences.

How did you come up with the title for the book?

One of the biggest things that constantly come up in the book, is how inhumanly beautiful and pale Angela Dragos is (part of her bloodline), and it just felt like a fitting title when you say it. I wanted to make sure that someone could pick up The Pale Huntress, and when they read the same title as a tagline for the sequels they would know exactly what they were getting into.

Did anything stick out as particularly challenging when writing The Pale Huntress?

I’d have to say one thing that was challenging was the rewriting. A lot of planned scenes were either cut or altered in order to fit the rhythm, and even certain scenes between Angela and Jacob just so that their relationship could really stand out. But I found that the more fat I trimmed the more expansive the world and story became. It was just one of the things that was necessary to polish and make it shine.

What do you like to do when not writing?

Cooking definitely. I like trying out new recipes with my wife if not in the kitchen then outside on my smoker. I also like to play guitar and I obviously like to read and watch movies. It’s always fun to explore them in depth.
