Editorial Reviews

From the Author

I can't seem to escape tackling controversial topics, in this book the idea of family curses, although it's changed from a more tangible and realistic curse (such as alcoholism) into a fantastical idea.

This book rather wrote itself. I knew the twist toward the end going in, and that it would tie in the Ripper murders, but the rest unfurled with each passing week. I intended to use Dr. Bell from the start. He's fascinating man, and was a fun character to write - a no-nonsense but very compassionate figure, devout in his faith and as remarkable for his observational skills as for his hidden talents.

Alana was a throwaway character in "The Secret in Belfast," important for only a few chapters, to establish the Conclave and Richard's role as their Influencer. But as I wrote those few pages about a remarkable woman with the incredible ability to "punish" those who use their gifts for evil, I knew she needed a novel and an entire back story of her own. Here, she has it, from the darkness in herself to her first meeting with Richard... although only observant readers will pick up on it.

The decision to bring in Alistair and Henoria, from "Thornewicke," was made for two reasons: I couldn't find a place for them in "The Secret in Belfast," however much I wanted to, and my readers asked me to delve further into their marriage. Here, we have them a genuine couple for the first time, and find out a few more surprising secrets and nuances of the relationship between Guardians and Defenders.

In my usual tongue in cheek way, I've slipped in literary nods to some of my favorite books and films, and made hints toward characters and places that will be important in future books... which may just be set in a time period much further back than 1888 England. But then, that's part of the fun of being a writer. Hopefully, it's fun for you, as my reader, too.
