has written a very unique fantasy story. That isn’t
easy to do as the fantasy market is rich in a wide variety
of stories. Let me explain. The story is very focused
on what the characters are about, and what everyone
is thinking, especially Kaelyn, the main character.
There is very few descriptions about the layout of the
town, the buildings, or the weather. The story keeps
its focus on what is happening with the string of murders,
and what is being done to try and solve and or stop
them from occurring. Throughout the story, there are
a number of surprises, twists and turns. In the end,
when it looks like there could not possibly be any closure,
there is. I found Katlyn to be a very enduring character,
I was pleasantly surprised when the plot took unexpected
turns, and loved the few late character additions that
helped with some questions that pop up during the story.
I would have liked it to be a little longer, as sometimes
there were parts that the writing was very vague that
it did feel like it would have benefitted from more
detail. That being said, if you want a stripped down
barebones fantasy psychological story, this is for you.
If you need a story where everything is described all
the way down to the smallest blade of grass, it is not.
took a few moments out of her busy schedule to answer

Twelve Pints of Blood.
Where did you come up with the story Twelve Pints
I have been a fan of anything supernatural since
I was a child. I tried to come up with a story that
I would like to read and others would enjoy as well.
I came up with the general idea and then the story began
to unfold on its own.
How long did it take to write the story?
I spent about two months mapping it out but it
only took a month to actually write it. I took a 30
day novel writing challenge and I completed to book
within that month.
Kaelyn is a very strong and enduring character. Having
said that, who would you consider your next favorite
My next favorite character would be Aidan because
of his connection with Kaelyn.
In the story, there are vampires, witches, as well as
werewolves. If given the choice, which one would you
want to be?
I think that I would want to be a vampire. The
super strength and speed are appealing.
Science Fiction and fantasy books have a long standing
tradition of having reoccurring characters over several
books. Is there a possibility that there will be more
stories written about Kaelyn and her escapades?
Yes, there is a strong possibility that there will
be more stories about Kaelyn. I enjoyed writing her
character and i would love to expand on her story.
Corky: If your readers get only one thing out
of your book, what do you want it to be?
I just want the readers to enjoy reading my book as
much as I enjoyed writing it.
