Now, Let's get to Know More About Our Author in this Interview:

What inspired you to write your first book?

I have always wanted to write. This particular story came because of a local High School that is situated near my home. I am unsure why. But the building, the grounds, where it was located, all of it caused me to think of setting stories and characters there, to see the trouble they find themselves sucked into.

Do you have a specific writing style?

No, I am learning. I am still attempting to find my voice and pace. But I do always have a loose structure as far as plot-line and then I somewhat wing it from there. I suppose I am a hybrid pantserJ

How did you come up with the title?

Again the school itself and the plot. I knew the schools population would mainly attend at night.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp?

I would say courage, friendship, loyalty and never giving up, also never judge a book by its cover. In other words, do not judge others, look inside them and find the person they are inside.

Are experiences based on someone you know, or events in your own life?

Somewhat, I believe the experiences Angel had before coming to Ame Academy, just the peer pressure and picking and such, we all can relate to. But no, never had vampires after meyet:O)

What book are you reading now? Into The Night by Jade Fowler

What are your current projects? I am working on the third and final novella in the Night School Vampire trilogy and re-editing my 2012 NaNoWriMo creation, Chrysalis.

Name one entity that you feel supported you outside of family members.

I believe in God, that He is helping me do all the things I am doing, meeting such fabulous people and living my dream. I am grateful to Him.

Do you have a song that you'd consider the theme for your novel? 

Artist Cecile Moniques Immortal Beloved that is Angel&Rafaels theme song!

Sounds interesting. Usually blood is used as food source or like a magically luring aphrodisiac. I can't think of a series that used blood as poison.

Thanks for the chance to win.
