What inspired you to write the Pike, Wisconsin series?

It was a trip to Wisconsin to surprise my brother for his birthday. We were driving through the countryside after a late spring snowstorm. The snow blanketed everything in white. You could see forever and it struck me that it would be a perfect canvas for a serial killer.

How are the new books in the Guardians of Eternity series different?

They will focus on the Rebels, a clan of vampires who were banished by the former Anasso. We’ll discover how they’ve survived and the danger they pose to Styx as he attempts to bring them into his family. You’ll also get a chance to see how the old characters are adjusting to their various mates.

Do you ever get tired of the Guardians of Eternity series?

No. Although I enjoy writing in other genres and creating new stories, it’s always a pleasure to return to the world of the Guardians. After all these years they’ve become members of my family, and I can’t imagine not spending at a portion of my time with them. Of course, I want to make sure I can keep the series fresh, so I’ll be writing a few books that are set in the world, but with new characters.
