It’s been an amazing journey so far in the writing world. Paranormal beings are dominating my life and my imagination, creating them is so much fun and intriguing.
There are so many reasons why I enjoy writing. At first it was only a hobby and something I decided to do suddenly in November 2009, and now I have found myself developing further with the plots and characters that I create.
Every day is a massive learning curve, reading reviews and hearing readers thoughts and feelings teaches me many different aspects that I could incorporate into my writing, and for this I am grateful.
My writing career has been a continued and I have found myself becoming relentless with the stories that I create. If anyone told me in 2009 that I would create 25 stories by 2011, with 10 others waiting to be edited I would have said they were exaggerating just a tiny bit, but I have accomplished this and I am sincerely pleased with the progression of my stories and the chance to be able to deliver them in different versions.
Although my stories are generally driven towards vampires, I have developed so many different perspectives of them in my stories, integrating the old traits and the newer more modern style of a vampire into my stories.
Vampires are mysterious, strong and anything a writer desires them to be. This is most of the fun when I write about them and create their worlds. There is nothing more exciting than creating a different type of vampire that hasn’t been written before.
Over the years vampires have changed, an authors perspective on our favorite paranormal species have developed and given a different take with every vampire novel that gets written.
Since the great Dracula was written, and I believe that Dracula is absolutely brilliant and a complete original of our favorite paranormal species, we now have vampires that can twinkle, use different powers and they also have the ability to fall in love.
Modern vampires are growing on me, and they are becoming somewhat gentle in the horror genre, their skills and their abilities have grown and added a certain mystique to their already mystical appearance through the conveyance of an author’s word.
I believe modern vampires have pulled away from the traditional traits a vampire has been known to do, such as manipulation to an human in order to collect their prey to feed without much resistance, they have been known to induct slaves to carry out their work in humans by creating hybrids by that I mean a human who is stuck between our world and the world of the vampire, obeying the vampires wishes and dirty deeds whenever he wishes.
I’m passionate when creating vampires, and my interest has grown with the paranormal genre, I want to create a vampire race that is different to those already out there, and worlds including new paranormal creatures (as seen in Depths of Darkness) that have either not been heard off and are completely fictional, or they are legends and I have adapted their characters to fit the theme of my stories.
My own vampires run between the modern take and the old traditional themes that we are used too. Some of the older traits such as the ones Dracula was able to do have stuck with me inside my vampire world. The vampires I write about do not fight werewolves as we usually see in an authors perspective and they have been written many times, my vampires fight a cat like creature, called a Gulon.
The Gulon is an extra added paranormal creature that has originated from a Scandinavian legendary creature, when I first read about them I wanted to create them in a way so I adapted their legend to fit with the vampire and paranormal theme, and then added something special about them inside my books. The Gulons can be read in the Moon Rising series that currently consists of 3 stories, Moon Rising, Sunrise to Sunset and finally the latest title Golden Horizons, very soon I intend to create a series of stories purely on the Gulons, along with the vampire in Moon Rising, the Gulons have been fascinating to create and adapt.
