A Character Interview with Katriane Dupont by D. Fischer #IAN1 #IARTG

What is your favorite weapon? Kat lifts her hands, turning them this way and that, examining her the lines along her palms. She lifts her eyes to the interviewer, an orange glow spreading across the rims of her iris’. The skin above her cheekbones darken, and her teeth elongate, sharpen. A puff of smoke curls from her nostrils, trickling up her cheek. “I am the weapon.”

“Unlike the Rest” #Instafreebie

Get your copy free on instafreebie. Nisha has great sway over those around her and it threatens to tear her people apart. Will Nisha learn to harness her potential before it's too late, or will her whole world crumble around her?

Unexpected Quirks

Sometimes life's little quirks are the perfect opportunity for something wonderful in your life. In my case a random line in a movie led to my first traditionally published novel.


My point with this long and rambling blog is: that inspiration for settings, whether you are building a new world or placing characters in ours, is right in front of you. If you need a huge waterfall, or a mountain with a lake below it, or even an alien landscape everything you need is just a picture away. 

The Alter

This book was a surprise for me. I don't normally read CIA novels or anything remotely realistic. I enjoyed this book and was intrigued by the story line and plot. I felt like it was a paranormal twist on Jason Bourne and really liked the action sequences. I turned the pages as fast as I could for the first 200 or so pages.

An Excerpt from Nisha Patel’s Story

We moved in from opposite sides. The first Mordere did not see me coming. I rushed in with my sword and swung at its neck. Blood sprayed covering my face and chest. My sword was caught on bone and the Mordere’s head hung from muscle and sinew. It was still alive and grabbing for me now. I pulled the dagger from my belt and plunged it into its heart. The creature screamed in rage. I grabbed the head and ripped it from the body as it crumpled to the ground.

An Excerpt from Anya Drake’s Story

I attacked the poor woman with such savagery that I nearly tore her head off as I bit into her neck. Blood flowed into my mouth and I drunk it down in great gulps. My body uncurled and my heart stopped whatever horrible pattern it was in for one so slow you would hardly call it one.
