To celebrate the countdown to my new release, the first book in the Living in Eden series, THE DEMON IN ME, I’m blogging (almost) every day — and some days I have fabulous guests visiting with us!
Today it’s the fabulous urban fantasy author Jaye Wells, author of the kick-ass Sabina Kane series who has agreed to take part in my demonlicious Q&A………
What inspired you to write about demons?
I think it originated as fear of possession as a child (yeah, I was an interesting kid) and turned into fascination as I got older. Plus, when I started my series I knew I wanted a hairless cat character and it just seemed natural to make one a demon.
Demons — shades of gray or always evil?
Shades of grey definitely. Sabina’s sidekick, Giguhl, is a Mischief demon so he’s mainly there to shake things up and usually is a good guy. But other demons in the series are definitely evil.
My series is about Sabina Kane–half-vampire, half-mage, all assassin–who gets caught in the middle of a brewing war between vampires and mages. In her quest to figure out whose side she’s on she picks up a variety of allies and enemies, including Giguhl, a demon sent to test her who ends up being her minion. The second book, The Mage in Black, just came out and it’s filled with all sort of demony goodness, including a Demon Fight Club.
Let’s say Jim Cameron calls and he wants to make THE MAGE IN BLACK into a movie. Who are your actor/actress choices?
Sabina–Shirley Manson (not an actress, but kick ass nonetheless)
Adam–Ryan Reynolds (the hawtness)
Giguhl–Oliver Platt or Philip Seymour Hoffman,
What’s your one line of advice for aspiring writers (demonic or otherwise)?
Sit your ass in the chair and do the damned thing.
