WHAT WAS THE INSPIRED YOU TO WRITE THIS BOOK:
A dream 10 years ago. It started off with writing it down so I didn’t forget my dream and it turned into an incredible story that I hadn’t yet seen in books.
TELL US ABOUT YOUR BOOK:
My protagonist, Mercy, her life has devolved into a string of bad events. Her mother’s brutal beating that nearly stole her life, a dangerous stalker lurking in the shadows, and a car accident, where the man who rescued her disappears right before her eyes. This man who she thought was a hallucination, tracks her down at a nearby cove, and claims they were once in love from another time. Another century. But Mercy has no memory of this world he shares, and instinctively doesn’t trust him. He also reveals to her a life-changing secret—she’s an ancient witch, vampires are real, and she’s destined to destroy them. There’s also the troubling discovery that her blood is lusted after by the undead, and a sadistic vampire leader sets his eyes on her, and will stop at nothing until he takes Mercy as his own. There are more twists and turns but I don’t want to spoil those for the readers. This is a story about a teenage girl who’s life changes forever, as she’s thrown into a perilous journey to save mankind. The trilogy definitely gets darker as you go into the next book to the next book. The trilogy does conclude at the end of the third book in an epic, and satisfying way.
