My favorite mythical creature has to be an angel. Why? Because I’m not sure they’re actually mythical. Maybe the way people portray them in paintings and movies is not real, but the fact that they truly might exist makes them fascinating.

Anything dealing with the afterlife draws me in, and angels definitely fall into that category. I’d have to say though, if I have a guardian angel, she’d definitely working overtime. Just another thing I love about angels.

And seriously, what woman wouldn’t love to encounter an ethereal being so gorgeous and powerful, he could answer all your prayers. Amen to that sister! 

 


 

 

 


Once I was an angel, which I loved. Now I’m a demon, which I hate. And might I add that my fall was totally not my fault despite what those heavenly douchebags believe. Anyway, I’m stuck with this gig, working for one of the head demons of Hell. And to be frank, I’m rather good at tempting souls and avoiding the boss man. That is until Camuel, my former angelic partner, arrives on the scene. All I want is to tempt my mark to the dark side, and then enjoy a nice glass of wine and a good book. Unfortunately, tall, blond, and feathery has other things in mind.


 

 

After radio silence for a couple thousand years, BAM, there she is, my old partner Mara. I thought I was over the anger of her joining Lucifer’s entourage, but clearly, I’m not. And damned if she isn’t smack dab in the middle of trouble, messing with the soul I’ve been assigned to save. Things are about to get ugly, because there’s no way I’m letting my client be swayed by a minion of Hell. And no doubt I’ll do something stupid like try to save Mara’s soul. I just hope I can do it without losing my own.

I’ve loved mythology since I was really small, so much so that I’d buy books on Ancient Egypt (that was my absolute favourite mythology) with my pocket money. But picking just one creature is really tough! There are so many, and as a paranormal romance author, that gets all the harder! I’ve written about shifters, vampires, necromancers, dryads and sirens, not to mention the mermaid I’m writing with J & L Wells for this set! Which makes it really hard to pick.

So I’m going with Ammit, mostly in homage to my love of Ancient Egypt as a child. Ammit is an Ancient Egyptian demon who was part lion, part hippo
and part crocodile, and she was also known as the devourer of the dead. Which sounds kind of ominous, but actually is really interesting. The Ancient Egyptians believed that when a person’s soul traveled to the afterlife, their heart was weighed by Anubis (the God ofCemeteries & Embalming) against the feather of Ma’at (the Goddess of Truth). If the heart was heavier than the feather, then the soul had led a bad life, and Ammit devoured the heart, stopping that soul from reaching the afterlife. 

 

 

 

 

Sorry, history lesson is now over! I find it all so fascinating that I can’t help myself! Which is why I chose Ammit in the first place. The whole mythology is fascinating to me, and I’m planning to write a series based on the Ancient Egyptian Gods & Goddesses at some point…I don’t think they get enough page time!

I hope you enjoy our Creatures box set! There’s a fantastic collection of stories in it!

My favourite would have to be fairies. As I live in Ireland here is a little information on fairies who live here amongst us.

This is its story:

In Irish folklore, Lone Bushes are the meeting places of the Fairies. The fairies are believed to be the Tuatha de Danann, one of the first tribes to arrive in Ireland, they were a magical and secretive people.

When warrior tribes like the Milesians began to arrive in Ireland the Tuatha de Danann were defeated in battle but would not be forced to leave. They loved Ireland so much they decided to use their magic to shrink themselves and live underground. The tunnels which you can see are believed to travel all over the country to different fairy villages. Each fairy village is marked by a single hawthorn tree or Lone Bush located nearby.

The fairies are a secretive people who are blamed by the local Irish for many things which they cannot explain. As a result, the fairies like to be left alone and it is considered bad luck to disturb a fairy bower or a Lone Bush.

My favorite mythical creature has to be dragon. So much power, magic, and I suppose they will always represent what a fairytale is made of for me. Now put a sexy vampire riding a dragon and I may just pass out from the excitement.

Dragons are my favorite mythical creatures. When I was a kid, I spent long hours imagining what it would be like to own a pet dragon and fly over the clouds, looking at the world from above. I’ve read countless books about dragons, and I never seem to have enough of those stories. From fantasy to steamy paranormal, if there is a dragon, I will read it. There is a sense of freedom I experience any time I find a good dragon novel that leaves me at peace with the world. The sheer power, and at the same time grace and elegance, of such creature when combined with a shifter is an explosive union, and it gives an author plenty of opportunities to write an epic story. When I introduced Dragon Sol in the Fifth Moon’s Tales, all I wanted was a badass sidekick for my werewolf, but Dragon’s character grew sentence by sentence, acquiring all the traits typical of its namesake: loyalty, strength, charm, wittiness. Soon, I couldn’t deny him the story he demanded any longer, and I finally gave in and started writing The Fifth Moon’s Dragon. In the process, I realized that I’ve never truly forgotten my dream as a child. I still want a pet dragon, especially if he comes in the shape of a hunk shape shifter.

I do enjoy a sexy vampire or shifter story. But I gotta say, I love the magical and conniving Fae creatures, which is why I chose them for the Halven Rising series. The Fae in the Halven Rising series have a slightly different mythology than the typical pixie or brownie sometimes found in Fae stories. One theory of the origin of Fae suggests they descended from angels, yet they’re different from Nephilim. That small piece of mythology gave me something to run with.

In the Halven Rising series, the Fae were ordained into existence by a higher power and given magical abilities through their relation to angels. Just as there are said to have been battles in heaven, so too are there battles in Faery. It doesn’t hurt that Fae believe they’re superior to humans. Especially, when they find themselves falling in love with one. That’s when the real tension and magical sparks fly!

My favorite mythical creature to write about are the fae, faries, fey, or whatever you want to call them. They’re a fascinating subject because they have such versatility in how they can be portrayed, from their physical description to their personalities, their culture, even their world. We have a rich lore and mythology to draw from, and yet you can even make the fae into a completely different creature that has nothing to do with myth. They are extremely versatile and ripe with possibilities, like the elven and dwarven races, yet better. The fae are the very source of magic and all that is wondrous and beautiful in the world, so you could do anything from humanoid fae, to shifters, to anthropomorphic, or full fae animals, or even fae plants and trees (think I AM GROOT). I am always excited at the potential to create beautiful, yet terrible things with the fae, an inspiration I’ve had eve since I saw Cameron’s “Avatar” and the world they created on Pandora. I am also a lover of plants, nature, and the outdoors, so I guess it was inevitable that I’d gravitate toward the creature that has an affinity for such things. And, yes, my favorite movie as a kid was definitely Fern Gully (don’t judge). But in my book series, the Lily Singer Adventures, I have a ton of fun exploring the fae and fae culture from a unique perspective, not as cute little bobs flitting around, or even as a vindictive race of humanoids just waiting for mankind to let their guard down to swoop in and conquer. My fae are stewards of the earth, a disinterested party, shall we say, in the larger struggle playing out between man and demon. It’s a fun take on fae purpose and culture and I’m only 4 books into a 12 book series, so there’s much more fun to come. What’s interesting though, is that the book I’ve written for the “Creatures” box set, is a spin-off origin story of one of the characters from before he ever met the fae. But it’s alright, I have enough fun with a ghost and some tricksy demons that there’s creatures enough to keep you occupied. Enjoy!
