Q1) Tell us about your book
Halflings is the first book in a trilogy about a young woman called Riley who discovers that her father was a monster hunter and she may have inherited his skills. The situation is made more difficult by the fact that her rival at school may be her half sister. Riley is drawn into a strange world and must quickly learn to defend herself. It is dark fantasy and for adults only.
Q2) Why did you focus on myths/legends from that particular region?
Halflings draws on myths from both Native American and Irish mythology. One of the creatures is my version of a skinwalker and there is also mention of the Morrigan who will feature more prominently in the next book. I'm from Ireland myself so I wanted to include something from here.
Q3) Who is your favorite mythical figure?
I like myths from all over the world, but I do love the Morrigan and I like figures from Greek Myth too such as Athena - the Goddess of Wisdom.
Q4) If you could choose to hang out with one mythical God, who would it be and why?
Ooh that's a tough one. I would say Loki, because I imagine it would be interesting to say the least.
Q5) Do you plan on writing similar books in the future?
Yes, I have two more books planned in this series and I will no doubt write new stories with myths too as I think they are such a huge part of our lives and have strong messages.
