Character Interview

Chelsea Bishop
From the Dead Oaks Terrors Series

Who are you and what makes you great?
My name is Chelsea Bishop. I grew up in this crazy town called Dead Oaks. Last Halloween I came home from college to see some friends who moved away. It turned into a gruesome night where only a few of us survived. I suppose that’s what makes me great, I’m a survivor.

What is your soul purpose in life?
I want to uncover the dark truths about our hometown. Something isn’t right here. Whatever is taking place in Dead Oaks seems to focus its attention on the children most of all. I want to stop it and keep our town safe!

What kind of adventures have you had that stay with you till this day?
The events that took place on that Halloween still haunt me. Since then, I witnessed the terror brought forth by a Ouija board, a poor snake the evil in our town twisted, and recently faced Scary Joe, a scarecrow possessed by the spirit of a local murderer. I think of the losses the town has suffered everyday. It also makes me fight harder to uncover the truth and put an end to the terror.

I don’t know if you’d call him a love interest, but there is Caleb Rollins. He’s a deputy and long time friend. We were both involved in the massacre on Halloween and have since become close while we fight against the evil in Dead Oaks. I can’t deny that he’s a cutie and fun to be around. Just don’t tell him that. He gets a big head about things like that. He doesn’t need anything else to make him full of himself.

Tell us about your journey you are on and how it has helped you grow as a person.
In the beginning, when I came home, my plan was to visit and leave. That all changed when I realized so many were in danger. I’m not a superhero or anything, but I am smart. I’m good at figuring things out. Helping those in Dead Oaks who needs me fills me with a sense of purpose. I stay close to them and want to see the best for them. I guess that’s how I’ve grown. Instead of cutting ties and running away to safety, I’m becoming one of the protectors.

What kind of creatures do you see on a daily basis?
Ghosts. This town is full of them. I even think my shop, Wicked Treasures is haunted. The freakiest thing though had to be the scarecrow, Scary Joe, the Night Stalker. Seeing that monstrosity walking around was freakier than I ever imagined!

Who do you look up too? Why?
Again, don’t tell him, but Caleb. He’s fearless, even when he’s scared to death. If someone is in danger, he throws caution to the wind and only wants to save them. I guess in a way you could say he’s our hero.

If you had one thing about yourself that you would want to change what would it be?
I suppose it would be my need to know everything. According to Caleb, I’m just nosy as hell. I call it eager to learn.

Who is your ultimate enemy? Why?
A person? I don’t have one. The only true enemy I have is the evil gripping this town.

What should we expect from you in your coming book?
Night Stalker, which just released tells the story of Scary Joe, the Night Stalker of Dead Oaks. My part in the story? I’m right in the thick of things helping Caleb try to stop the monster loose in our town and save the teenagers he has his sights set on.

Interview with Rena Marin

Welcome to another hump day everyone. Today I am sitting down with multi-genre author Rena Marin. Please sit back and relax and enjoy the read.

Interview

Tell us a little bit about yourself?
I’m from a little town in Tennessee. I suppose you could call me a typical country girl. I love the mountains, warm summer days, and of course, spending time with my family. I’m married to a great guy and we have two kids together. I’m a huge fan of movies and TV. I’m also a huge horror buff. Whether it’s shows, movies, or books if it’s scary I’m interested lol.

What genre do you write in? Why?
I’ve tried my hand at several genres. Most of the time I like to call myself a multi-genre writer. Lately, however, I have been bouncing back and forth between horror, fantasy, and rom-com.

If you could change one thing about your life what would it be and why?
My job. It’s great for paying the bills and all that but it takes a lot of time away from the family and writing. I would prefer a normal 9 to 5 gig, but living in a small town like this doesn’t offer a lot of options for that.

Tell us about your latest release?
My latest release is set for October 2, 2019. It is called The Hunter’s Guild of Dark Hollow Ridge. This book is the sequel to my The Witches of Dark Hollow Ridge which was released in October of 2018. In this follow up, my witches learn a lot more about the new world they find themselves part of and have quite a few big decisions to make in the process.

Tell us about your main character in your book. What makes them unique?
Sadie Love James is your typical 18 year old girl. She finds herself in a situation where she’s lost all the adults she depended on is left with the responsibility of taking care of those around her. It scares her, but she’s not one for giving up easily. When it comes to being a witch though, Sadie loves it. She wishes she’d been told all the dark secrets her coven has been hiding but now she’s to the point where nothing surprises her. She is ready to stand on her own if need be but luckily for her, she still has a few allies around to help her out.

What is your writing process like?
I’m an early morning writer. I like to wake up before daybreak, grab some coffee, and get some words down before I start my day.

How did you come up with the story within your books? What inspired your creativity?
Each one is different, but I can definitely pinpoint where my Dark Hollow Ridge saga came from. It was a dream. I dreamed my 14 year old daughter and her friends were a coven of witches. When I woke up that morning, I jotted down what I remembered and the rest came from there.

Who are your top three favorite authors?
Stephen King, Erin Lee, and Joe Hill

What are you reading right now?
The Diary of a Serial Killer series by Erin Lee. I love it!

What should we expect from you in the coming months?
In October alone I have three releases. The Hunter’s Guild of Dark Hollow Ridge is on the 2nd. Devoured, a horror novella releases on the 15th. On the 30th, Erin Lee and I have a quirky, monster satire releasing called Coming Out Monster. Then in November, the same thing. I have two more horror titles releasing that month along with a couple of anthologies, so busy busy lol.
