Ali Winters Interview
1) What fairytale(s) have you chosen to retell and why?
I choose Beauty and the Beast retelling (with Dracula and Pride and Prejudice) because it's one of my favorites and I love the element of 'who is the REAL beast?' that works so well with the overall structure. I can't think of another that has so many elements I can twist into something that works with my Vampires.
2) What makes your story unique?
I think the origin of vampires is one thing that makes the world I created unique. They are demon cursed creatures rather than undead.
3) What was your favorite fairytale growing up and why?
Beauty and the Beast, and I think like many authors my reasoning would be similar to "Who doesn't want that library?" But also, as a child I loved that she had a horse and knew how to ride. (I was obsessed with anything and everything that resembled a horse.)
4) Who was your favorite villain?
Oh that's tough. I suppose I don't have a specific favorite villain in mind as I do a type of villain. I love when they think what they are doing is right, or they have a back story that shows how their past pain has led them to do the horrible things they've done.
5) Is this a standalone or do you have more books planned?
I have 6 books of this series planned, and the majority of which will be published in 2020. Books two and three are up for preorder. (The dates for books two and three will be moved up soon)
