Nightmares Rise – Interview

NightmaresRise

Introducing a soon to be released book: Nightmares Rise. Burning Willow Press will be releasing Nightmares Rise, Book 1 of the Dark Shores trilogy – co-authored by Mirren Hogan and Erin Yoshikawa – on April 8

Here is a character interview with Flynn Cole, from Nightmares Rise.

Today I sat down with my good friend and character Flynn Cole.

Me: Hi Flynn.

Flynn: Hello.

Me: Nice Australian accent you have there.

Flynn: Thanks, I like yours.

Me: You do sound a bit like me.

Flynn: So, you had questions?

Me: Yes. I understand you went to Hawaii on holiday?

Flynn: Not so much a holiday. It was more a working holiday.

Me: So– a holiday?

Flynn: (laughs). The point was to take some photos and then sell them. I’m a photographer. Okay, budding photographer.

Me: Why Hawaii?

Flynn: It’s about as far from my family as I could get. Don’t get me wrong, I love them, but a guy needs a break from being asked when he’s getting a real job.

Me: So when are you?

Flynn: …

Me: Okay, okay. So tell me about Makani,

Flynn: (grins like an idiot). She’s amazing. She’s strong, independent, funny, sexy, smart, and likes Angry Birds and Dr Who.

Me: Danger seems to follow her around. Are you okay with that?

Flynn: Well – to be honest I could do with less of that. I mean, it’s nice to have a bit of excitement, but to be followed around by vampires – sorry, manangaal – and other monsters get tiring after a while.

Me: What’s the difference between a vampire and a managaal?

Flynn: Have you seen those guys? They don’t sparkle, and they’re not civilised. They’re more like flying gut-sucking dogs.

Me: Woah, they sound like fun. Not.

Flynn: I know, right? But we hold our own against them. Mostly. Kind of…

Me: (laughs sadistically) And then some of your family tracks you down.

Flynn: I told you not to ask about that. (turns in chair). Where’s my manager?

Me: I’m your manager. Now answer the question.

Flynn: (sighs) Fine. Yes they did, my sister, her husband and their kids.

Me: Did they get eaten by monsters?

Flynn: I wish. I mean, you’ll have to read and find out.

Me: I heard there was no Vegemite in this book. Why should I read it?

Flynn: There’s pizza. There’s also beer and bacon. And sandwiches. everyone loves those, right?

Me: I like a good sandwich. I hear Makani likes them too?

Flynn: Oh yes, she loves a sandwich.

Me: What else do we need to know about this book?

Flynn: It’s funny, and urban, and sometimes a little gross, but in all the right ways.

Me: Well there you are folks: funny, urban, has monsters and sandwiches. I guess you better read it for yourself.

Finny Interview

Welcome, Finny to my page.

Thank you I’m happy to be here.

Tell us something about yourself, Finny.

Well as you can see I’m a very fetching sandy and white cat. My fur is the perfect combination for a feline living in the city of Safed. I blend seamlessly to my surroundings. Of course once upon a time I had a human form too, but today I prefer living as a cat, far less complicated.

How did you meet Miri?

I met Miri on the day she arrived in Safed. She was lost and needed a wise cat like me to show her around.

Why are you so willing to help Miri, on her quest?

Love is important. I’ve seen so many of my family and friends destroyed over the years. Miri will never forgive herself if she believes she can help Danny and lets it go. So I’m helping her as much as I can.

How do you feel about the Rabbi, Rav Shmuel? You spend time at his compound, but he seems strict.

Thankfully as a cat I don’t have to follow all the restrictions that Rav Shmuel lays down for his family, but still I try to be respectful. I feel though he should trust Rifka more and give all his children a bit more freedom.

Aren’t you scared to go into Umbrae?

I don’t like it. Every time I visit Umbrae I lose a little of my lifeforce and I’ve been traveling in and out of the shadows for a long time. As I said I don’t like it, but sometimes it’s necessary.

What’s the most surprising, or frightening thing you’ve seen in Umbrae?

The Tegs sisters – Stella and Morgana. I really should stay away, but it’s fun to rile them up sometimes. Still when I first came across them it was scary. I nearly was trapped. They are very devious, almost as devious as a cat …

It’s great you get to travel around the world, sometimes on your adventures. What is the most interesting land you’ve traveled to?

I think my favorite place is Aswan in southern Egypt. That’s where the P.A.W.S. Institute of the Middle East sits. I love this area of the Nile and one day I’m going to smuggle myself onto one the Nile riverboats (or feluccas) and go on an adventure.

What future adventures can we expect to hear about?

I’ve always wanted to go to London and visit the P.A.W.S. Institute over there. I’ve heard there’s an old mage over there with very ancient magic. It would be interesting to meet him and pick his brains.

Umbrae by Debbie Manber Kupfer

Umbrae is the third book in the series about P.A.W.S. and Miri’s learning her powers and fitting in with the other creatures and beings who  are different and special. I have read all three in the series, so far, and rate them five stars. I highly recommend these books.
