I know of the Storyteller, it whispers into the man’s ear, I’ve met him. If you promise not to kill me, I’ll take you to him.
Alix Andre DeBenit and Randall Fagan are Hunters, part of a hidden network of humans who track and kill the monsters lurking in our world so everyone else can pretend they don’t exist. But when a living shadow mentions someone called the Storyteller, Alix hesitantly decides to learn more.
They say the Storyteller lives in a massive library full of books that tell every being’s life story. He can read these books, rewrite them and change anything he wants, even if it’s already happened. That’s the power Alix wants, the power to bring his murdered family back and he’s determined to make the Storyteller do it.
He just has to decide if working with the very creatures he’s supposed to kill is worth it.

How is Writing In Your Genre Different from Others?
The idea of the Storyteller is original to our story, a sort of lonely god creature who lives in a library filled with the story of everyone’s life. The Storyteller is the only one who isn’t supposed to have a book, because his story never leaves the library.
Along with him, our genre is Urban Supernatural. The series takes place in the Twin Cities, Minnesota where we live with well known locations around us worked into the story. You could take the book to the city and take a tour, finding all of the spots we mention (with a little help.)
What Advice Would You Give Aspiring Writers?
Write. Just write the ideas you have, no matter how good or bad you think they are. Any thing can be edited into perfection, it’s just a matter of work. But you can’t edit something you haven’t written yet. So just do it. Worry about making it perfect later.
My life is a flurry of writing, art and creativity. You can usually find me reading a book, scribbling notes in a notebook for future creations, typing on a laptop with music blaring in my ears or buried in my basement watching documentaries and sitting behind a sewing machine.
I’ve been writing for as long as I can remember and have boxes of old notebooks in horrible handwriting to prove it. Only recently have I stumbled back into writing and finishing my ideas.
Seeking the Storyteller is the first novel I’ve published; with my partner in crime and life, Briana Lawrence. I also write horror, fantasy, supernatural and occasionally romance pieces which I am currently shopping around through contests and publishers.What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
Seeking the Storyteller and the series it begins, is the creation of myself and my partner while we lived states away from each other. Every night we chatted online and roleplayed these characters, exploring their stories and fine-tuning their world.
