Adam Oster hates writing bios. If you ever find him working on an auto-biography, you'll know he's finally been taken over by some sort of memoir-loving group of pod people.
That being said...here's a little bit of information about him.
Originally hailing from Columbia, SC, Adam lives in Eau Claire, Wisconsin with his gorgeous wife and three adorable kids. He spends a lot of his time trying to figure out what part of this world he'd like to visit next.
When he's not traveling or writing books, he's working a rather mundane desk job, dreaming up further tales of adventure.
His favorite activity is to explore, whether it's his current hometown, or anywhere else he happens to end up. When he's not exploring, he often finds himself enjoying stories in whatever form he can find them, through television, movies, books, comic books, and video games.

As a fan of the mythology that has grown around the Judeo-Christian religions, I was quite interested to see what Haig would do with the character of Sammael, who is, in my opinion, one of the more fascinating characters of Biblical lore. And although this short story is but a taste of the full story, I have to admit that the taste has made me crave more about this world that Haig's created around a well-known character.
The time period this story is set in will immediately be familiar to most readers. One can almost hear the Southern drawl coming out of the characters' dialogue as they make their way through these few pages.
But what is most interesting all lies within the character of Sammael and the cryptic hints we are given to the greater story at hand, a story that I can't help but feel is one of ever-lasting unrequited love.
The tragic nature of Sammael, a child of God who was cast out for being imperfect, is enough to pull us into wanting to know more about his history on this planet, but Haig manages to create even more intrigue behind the figure through subtle hints at a greater history, and a constant internal battle between good and evil.
I'm eager to read more about this life Haig has created for the so-called Angel of Death in her full-length novel Glory!
