Interview with the Author
Q - So, what makes the Charm City Darkness series so special?
A - A lot of things! When I started writing the series, I wanted to write something that I like to read: fast-paced contemporary fantasy which is a little bit dark and gritty and maybe a little sexy.
The books are somewhat of a mix of genres: mainly urban fantasy, but there are definite thriller and suspense things going on, and even some mystery to keep things interesting.
Overall, the Charm City Darkness series is written as a page turner: I’ve tried to make it that kind of book that you start just before bed, and finish just before you have to go to work the next morning.
Q - What order should I read the books in?
A - I’ve written the books so that you can read them in any order, but there is over-arching character development with the characters’ relationships that you might enjoy if you read them in order:
- Stoned in Charm City
- A Favor for a Fiend
- A Blue Collar Proposition
- In the Eye of the Beholder (Coming Soon)
In the Eye of the Beholder, will be available in mid-2017. It takes a side-ways step from the main story, and dives into the life of a secondary character.
If you can’t get enough of the series, a few short stories are available as well. These can be read in any order:
- A Giving Hand, which can be found in the anthology, Hides the Dark Tower
- Finders Keepers, a prequel, which can be found in the back of A Blue Collar Proposition
- In Light, Pure Digestion Bred, found in the April 2017 issue of Occult Detective Quarterly
Q - Why should readers give these books a try?
A - The Charm City Darkness series is a fast, fun, thrill-ride that takes no prisoners! Readers who enjoy fast pacing and multiple plot that twists will enjoy this series.
And thanks for reading!
