I’m tellin’ ya, people, this is one pretty awesome interview I did with Archaeolibrarian during ‘Daughter of the Drackan’s‘ virtual tour. You get not one, not two, but three really cool excerpts from the novel (those close to my heart…and all of them completely different). I was feeling generous 🙂
Please come on by and say hello. Post some things. Ask about the book. Enter to win a $25 Amazon or BN gift card. Either way, I’ll be there hanging out. Come join me!

Is anything in your book based on real life experiences or purely all imagination?
Most of it is completely imagination and the movie in my head. In real life, I got Igetheyr’s character from a dream (he’s a fabulously powerful supporting character, and his role in this book and its sequel stand somewhere in the middle of major and hardly seen. I have been throwing the idea around of making him the protagonist in a sequel to ‘Daughter of the Drackan’, set centuries in the past, but it hasn’t stuck anywhere yet).
I think I also pulled all my negative emotions, aggression, disdain, and everything I wished I could do if it weren’t for societal mandates—and, you know, having friends—wadded it up into a mucky ball, and threw it into Keelin. She took it like a champ. I think Keelin is the way I get to channel my own inner, wild darkness without it ever having to see the light of day. Thank goodness.
