Interviewing Sue Dent, a writer of stories that appeal to general market horror/fantasy/fiction readers as well as those who favor narrowly targeted work put out by affiliated Christian publishers.
1. What are you reading?
The Secret Commonwealth of Elves, Fauns & Fairies by Robert Kirk, also known as the "fairy" minister. It's research for the third installment in my vampire/werewolf Thirsting for Blood series. Robert Kirk was the seventh son of a seventh son and was therefore predispositioned to have second-sight. In his book Kirk details visits he had with others like him. It was probably written in the late 1600s but was first published in 1815 by Sir Walter Scott. Robert Kirk was a minister and the first to translate the Bible into Gaelic.
2. What are you writing?
I'm currently working on Cyn No More, the third installment of my Thirsting for Blood series. Vampires and werewolves and . . . fairies? In recent news concerning the series here in the US, both Never Ceese and Forever Richard were approved for distribution to the Christian market.
