Roots in a Dark History

Some stories come easily. They flow through your fingertips as though the words already exist somewhere and you’re just a wormhole for them to travel through. Other stories take far more work. My novella, The She-Wolf of Kanta, was one of the latter.

Just coming to terms with the story’s inspiration was a struggle. This story had roots in some dark places in history, places that weren’t comfortable to explore. Various Google searches would sometimes stick in my brain late at night with how horrific they were. I’ve got a strong sense of empathy, which can make being a horror author difficult at times.

Today I did a guest post over on the blog: Reading for the Stars and Moon. I talk in more detail about this and why it was so difficult to deal with when writing SWoK. I hope you’ll take a look.

This is Day 1 of my week-long blog tour. Check back here each day for new posts.

The She-Wolf Of Kanta will be released in ebook, audiobook, and paperback copies on April 17, 2018. I cant wait to share Mercy’s journey with you. 👣🌲🐺
