Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
I grew up in Burlington County of New Jersey. I grew up below the poverty line the first twelve years of my life. Then, by the grace and blessing from God, our household income grew. I did not dive into athletics until freshman year of high-school. So anime, fantasy type movies were a big thing to me. I found a blank composition notebook and wrote. I wrote stories, goals, and ideas. Just whatever came to mind was jotted down.
Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story I have ever read was I believe "Alls Quiet on the Western Front". I actually hated it, but what caught me was the numerous themes and motifs in the story. I read it for English class in High-school and that stood out to me.

An appetite for murder that stems from their demon ancestors is attempted to be used for good rather than evil. Baests are not the only ones. There are other creatures of Evil. Can evil be used for good? I recommend that one reads Escaped Demons first, then Devil's Rejects. It creates more efficient way to follow this timeline.

  • Cain The Immortal: The Beginning on Nov. 26, 2015

    This short story is overly intriguing. Author Bree Pierce takes a Christian story and gives it a dark twist. She brings the story, primarily Cain to life. It is the beginning of a series that should be followed.
