Describe your book The Raven’s Endgame (Hunter in the Dark) in ten words or less
The Raven’s Endgame: Girl with amnesia must save the world from firestorm
Where or how did you come up with the idea for your story?
I’m not exactly sure how I came up with the amnesia plot, but it was before I even released Gift of the Destroyer.
The firestorm plot came from a bit of backstory from Gift of the Destroyer, where an artifact known as the Keystone is used to amplify Gifts a thousandfold.
In that particular bit, it was used by an Unraveler (simply put: an energy leech), but I kept asking myself what would happen if a Destroyer (simply put: elemental mage) got its hands on it.
Which of your characters (in this book) is closest to your heart and why?
Closest to my heart: Definitely Melody.
She’s a delightful character to write. Her amnesia makes her all the more interesting to explore. Early on, she shows amazing prowess with weapons, but at the same time this terrifies her. She keeps asking herself: can I control this? Or will I kill out of reflex?
Do you have a day job? If yes, tell us about it and how did that affect your writing / publishing process?
Yes, I am a Software Engineer.
The effect on my writing is mostly positive: I go to work by train, and each day I get about an hour and a half of writing out of this. I’d say that about 60-70% of my writing is done during this commute.
Tell us about an upcoming book or project you’re excited about
There were hints of a greater enemy in Gift of the Destroyer, and even more so in The Raven’s Endgame. In this final part, this enemy will finally be revealed, and put face to face with the protaganists.
Bonus Question! Fill in the blank: If you like ___, you’ll probably like my book too!
In many ways, my books are influenced by the works of Terry Brooks. They follow the lives of a single family over several generations, and they’re essentially adventure novels in a fantasy setting.
So if you like the works of Terry Brooks, the odds are that you’ll like mine as well.
The Raven’s Endgame (Hunter in the Dark) is available on Amazon (Kindle).
