Ednah Walters will now take your questions:
Thanks for having me.
Q. Great to have you! Can you tell us about your story?
The Guardian Legacy series is about teen Guardians, part human and part fallen angels children, who fight demons.
In HUNTED, Lil, my main character, is concerned with erasing her boyfriend Bran’s evil past by canceling the contracts he’d signed when he worked for a demon. What she and her friends don’t realize is there are consequences to canceling contracts and someone will have to pay.
Q. How did you come up with the idea?
The entire Guardian Legacy series idea started with the kris dagger. Once I learned about how Malays and Indonesians believed it had special powers, I wrote my series around it. As for Hunted, the idea for the villain came from an episode of Supernatural. I love Dean and Sam Winchester
Q. What’s your main character’s greatest strength, biggest flaw?
Lil’s greatest strength and flaw is loyalty. Once she believes someone deserves her loyalty, she’d do whatever it takes to help and defend them. It gets her in some very crazy spots.
Q. What is the hardest part of writing for you?
Plotting. I hate to plot, yet I must to some degree.
Q. What one question do you wish an interviewer would ask you but never has?
How come you don’t have your pictures anywhere online? LOL.
Q. A-hem, camera shy? I actually wondered about that! What are you working on now? Do you tend to work on multiple projects or one at a time?
I’m working on the next GL story, FORGOTTEN.
I’m also working on a new series, RUNES. Book 1 will be released May 20th, and I’m working on book 2.
I’m also working on an adult romance since I write contemporary romance under E. B. Walters.
I multi-task with the best of them.
Q. Nice! What is your favorite line from this book?
“Yours always, mine forever.”
Lil and Bran just made their vows in the spur of the moment and exchanged them while dangling in mid-hair. Well, not exactly dangling. He was flying with her in his arms. Then he decided they didn’t need rituals to claim each other. They had the elements as their witnesses.
Q. Did you always want to be a writer?
No, I wanted to be a chemist at some pharmaceutical lab, making new drugs.
Q. So, you’re a science girl? Awesome. Was there any part that you struggled with or avoided writing?
Fight scenes…nightmare to write
Q. What are you reading right now? Do you read a book at a time or more than one?
I wish I had more time to read. I’m reading a fellow Spencer Hill Press author’s book. Finn Fannigan.
Q. What do you like to do when you’re not writing? Any hobbies?
I’m a serious zumba dancer. It’s how I stay sane and stay balanced.
Q. What was your favorite book/who was your favorite writer as a teen?
Nancy Drew series
Q. Who is your favorite writer now?
Q, What is the best young adult book you’ve read so far in 2013?
Kelly Hashway’s Touch of Death
Q. What do you see emerging as the next big trend in young adult literature?
Contemporary romance. My agent told me and she’s always right.
Q. Have you ever wanted to quit writing? Why? What made you keep going?
Oh yes, I’ve wanted to quit. When those rejection letters kept coming, I wanted to quit. When my sells are pitiful, I want to quit, but you know what, writing is like reading and I’d shrivel up if I didn’t write or read.
Q. If you could have a career besides being an author, what would it be?
That’s awesome! Thank you so much for being here today! Its been great to have you 🙂
