Louise Findlay


Louise Findlay writes short fantasy stories and inspirational poetry.

I have many ideas and outlines for bloodthirsty gory (better than twilight) vampire books most are still in the works and may be a while until they are released.

(7th December 2014) One of these is a longer work (short story/novella) called A Spy in the Sagax Vampires. There is a free chapter excerpt on Smashwords and is 1/3 written. This is my current WIP.

I have a medieval poem (The Rogue's Odyssey) coming out in an anthology and will be on Smashwords soon after.

There is a short story (Challenging A Demon: Idiot Number 73,854 coming out in an anthology soon as well.

I also have a story about three tribes living on a archipelago called The Tribes in the Hollow which I have partly written.

There is a book which will be in a series, The Battle of the Mystical Arrowhead which is set in Ancient China with a ancient feud between 2 neighboring countries. It is half-way done.

Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I first started writing a proper story about 3 or 4 years ago called The Tribes in the Hollow (which I haven't finished yet) and abandoned it later. My mum had started writing a children's picture book series called Teabaggers (which is on smashwords) and I looked up sites for publishers and found smashwords. A few years later I was back into the writing mood and remembered smashwords so I looked at it, decided I liked it and signed up.
Do you remember the first story you ever wrote?
No but I liked writing in school but the first serious story I wrote was The Tribes in the Hollow which I haven't finished yet.

  • Shadow Stalker: The Hidden Truth (Episode 1) on Aug. 30, 2014

    Shadow Stalker: The Hidden Truth is the first episode of a serialised book series. It has a very good backstory which balances well with driving the plot forward with the events of the book. It has diverse characters with Auren, (a typical teenager who wants to rebel against her foster father, Kado's protective grasp) Jade, (Auren's friend who has led a very sheltered life) Deaken (Auren's other friend who knows how to fight and wants to make his own decisons) and Kado (who has a duty to protect and guide Auren whatever the cost.) I like the shamanic qualities of the Shadow Stalkers and their rulers, (of want of a better word) the Shadow People. It is good that the Shadow Stalkers are not all powerful and that delving into the shadow world holds it's own dangers. The story has a good climatic ending which makes it obvious that it is not over and there is more instalments to come. All in all, a great book that is definitely worth reading. I can't wait for the episodes to come.
  • Shadow Stalker: The Delohi-Saqu's Fate (Episode 2) on Nov. 02, 2014

    Shadow Stalker: The Delohi-Saqu’s Fate is the second episode of a serialised book series. I love how this episode delves more into the Shadow Stalkers with what they can do and how do they do it . I like how their abilities are all mental and not physical and the shadow world is very shadowy (hence shadow world) and misty were people appear like visions. It combines very well with the likeness to shamans. I also liked the use of special water which helps ease a shadow stalker into the shadow world. The characters are very well portrayed with building on the personalities of the characters we saw in the first episode and the introduction of new characters in this one. I loved how Kado pushed her in the deep end in the forest yet helped and protected her when she utterly failed. He is like a father figure to her but knows he has to keep his distance and not get emotionally attached to her. Overall, a great sequel which builds upon the first episode and the leaves the reader hungering for the third. Get writing the next one, Renee.
  • Shadow Stalker: Shadows' Betrayal (Episode 3) on Nov. 02, 2014

    I love this episode. I like how Auren gradually understands Kado and his motives. It’s also good when Auren presents intelligent ideas like when she says about the shadow people already thinking of Kado as the Foramar. Her interactions with Cathnor give much loved backstory to Kado. This segment has much more information about what will happen in the future via prophecies which is very shamanic. The one thing I’m would criticize though is how Kado is more loving and less harsh towards Auren. I understand it will be like that as the series progresses but I feel it may be too much too soon.
  • Shadow Stalker: Forbidden Love (Episode 4) on Dec. 13, 2014

    This is definitely one of the best if the not the best Shadow Stalker episode to date. I loved the whole forbidden love angle and I usually hate romance. Renee spun the tale magnificently. It wove in seamlessly with all of the Shadow Stalker's rules. Auren once again tries to rebel but it was utterly surprised that she learns how to cut her link with her mentor, Kado. I liked how Auren doesn't instantly get over her near death experience with a storm. It was an interesting perspective of seeing Auren's aunt and uncle for the first time. Overall, you just have to read it.
