Q+A with Danielle Ellison
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Danielle: I started imagining when I was kid, and from there everything sort of took on it’s own life. I was a big reader, a big pretender, and I love shows. I started in fan fiction, then in playwriting, transformed into short literary fiction, and finally found my spot in young adult.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Danielle: I think it was my love of a life that could be more with magic. I don’t write only paranormal, but I love to write to escape—which is the same reason I read. Nothing screams escape like the paranormal.
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Danielle: I want to teleport!! Which isn’t really magical, but I totally want it. I’d also settle for any sort of magic.
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Danielle: SALT was called "Buffy meets Charmed meets Supernatural” once and as an avid television fan, that was a huge honor. I think Storm amps up all of that and it gets a little darker while still keeping the elements that people loved about SALT. Plus, it’s only $.99!
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Danielle: I really like Cody Christian for Carter; he’s from Pretty Little Liars. And for Penelope, I like Maddie Hasson.
Storm (Salt #2) by Danielle Ellison.
Up until recently, Penelope was a witch with no magic. After having it stolen by a demon when she was just a child, Penelope had been forced to rely on sharing others’ powers as she went through the grueling training required to become an elite demon hunter. Now Penelope has more magic than she’s ever known. And when you’re this powerful, who needs salt to keep the demons away?
But power has a dark side.
Carter Prescott just wants to hunt demons and be with Penelope. But suddenly, witches who formerly had no magic are developing terrible, out-of-control powers. Now the world Carter swore to protect isn’t just endangered by malicious demons―it’s threatened by the same witches who once defended it. And Carter is horrified to see his girlfriend starting to change. Stronger. More powerful. Unrecognizable. It’s just a matter of time before Penelope changes into something far beyond his worst fears...
