Welcome back for another fascinating interview with a paranormal/apocalyptic novel author, Holly Hunt.
1) How long have you been writing?
I’ve been writing since I was 8, but I’ve only been seriously writing since I was 15. I’m 23 now, and I have 6 books released. I think I’ve done alright.
2) How many balls do you juggle on a daily basis, and how do you manage to keep them all in the air (usually), (ball = work, writing, family, etc.)
Work, boyfriend, writing. Writing usually sits on the table out of the way while I juggle one ball at a time (I’m not a good juggler!).
3) What can you tell us about your release Blood Moon. What I’m looking for is the story about how the story came to be, not just the blurb and what not.
Blood Moon is a werewolf apocalypse. Specifically, it doesn’t actually end anywhere near the apocalypse – but it does give you a running start to imagine.
4) What is it about the genre that you like so much?
There’s always a lot of fun to be had with apocalyptic stories,
5) Do you think you’ll move to another genre, and if yes, what to and when?
I move from one genre to another with each story. Horror, sci-fi, fantasy, romance and erotica, I’ve had my hand in. Others shall come…
6) Sweet or sour?
7) Chocolate or vanilla?
An author living in Canberra, Australia, Holly Hunt writes a collection of works including Sci-fi, Fantasy, Horror and Romance. Currently undergoing an apprenticeship in Butchery, Holly spends her days off writing and watching superhero cartoons.
Holly lives with her partner, Matthew, in a two-bedroom unit crammed with comics and movie memorabilia. She dreams of one day owning a big garden, three dogs and a cat, and can’t wait until that day gets here.
Upon a dark and blood-filled hour, humanity’s doom will rise to power.
Werewolves are real. They haunt the woods of North America, feeding on the bodies of humans stupid enough to blunder across their paths. Once rogue and uncoordinated, the rise of their goddess Alsvinth has brought them all together, with one goal: destroy as much of the species as necessary to enslave them within meat farms, to feed the werewolf army taking over the world.
Olivia, a werewolf from western Canada, and her brother Charlie set out to kill the goddess and save humanity. But can the werewolf and human destroy the goddess’s power, or will she prevail and turn the planet into a wasteland?
“Enough, Olivia,” a familiar voice hissed.
I stopped, shocked and scared to stillness. I started to cry as the goddess stood in the grass, kicking Charlie’s body aside and sauntering over to me.
“Thank you, children of the sky,” Alsvinth purred, resting a hand on the shoulder of each harpy. They let me go as she touched them. “My, Olivia. How you’ve grown.”
I was still. I couldn’t even think.
“Well, not really. You don’t age anymore, do you?” She grinned. “Like me, eternally beautiful.”
The creature in a woman’s skin touched my forehead, and I couldn’t even flinch from her cold, dead fingertips.
“No matter. You will become my second-in-charge. You have been so faithful as to convince the rogue to kill himself to strengthen me.” She kissed my forehead. “Dear Olivia,” she said as the obliviousness of her mind control took me, threw me to the wolves.
“You are mine.”
Hope you enjoyed the insight into Holly Hunt!
