Interview1. What inspired this book?
I tend to romanticize harsh, cold weather conditions (possibly because I live in pavement-melting south Louisiana), so I decided to set my characters on a journey through a frozen wilderness fraught with outlaws and dangerous beasties. That was the first inspiration. But the prime motivation was for my MCs to go on a hunt for a witch who could give them answers about their enemy. And amidst the cold and danger, they’d be forced to face their attraction for one another.
2. What was the most difficult part about working on this book?
The chapters from the villain’s POV was a challenge, but also interesting to write. I find the villains you can sometimes sympathize with to be the best kinds. We’ll see what readers think.
