Paranormal Guest Author: Sophie Jordan aka Sharie Kohler
Please welcome today's paranormal guest author Sophie Jordan! Sophie also writes under the name Sharie Kohler and is the author of the Firelight series (Firelight, Vanish) and the Moon Chasers series (Marked by Moonlight, Kiss of a Dark Moon, To Crave a Blood Moon, My Soul to Keep, Night Falls on the Wicked).
EJ: When did you begin writing?
Sophie: I write off and on since I was in junior high. I only determined to write with the serious goal to become published, however, in my late twenties.
EJ: What brought you to the paranormal genre?
Sophie: I’ve always been a fan of the horror genre and interested in paranormal lore. Honestly, there weren’t too many paranormal books I’d read when the idea for a “lycan” story came to me and I quickly got to work on it. That book became MARKED BY MOONLIGHT, the first book in my Moon Chasers series. When I wrote that book I had no idea it would even become a series! And now here I am on book five.
EJ: If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?
Sophie: Hm, tough … I think I’d like be an empath like the heroine in my third paranormal novel, TO CRAVE A BLOOD MOON. She’s just the most distinctive protagonist I’ve creatied and her supernatural “gift” made her wonderfully complex.
EJ: Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.
Sophie: NIGHT FALLS ON THE WICKED is a blending of several paranormal “creatures” that I’ve thus far introduced in my series. Lycans, hybrid lycans, witches, demons … in each Moon Chasers book, the world has expanded. So with NIGHT FALLS ON THE WICKED, book #5, the world really explodes and the stakes are higher than ever. And of course … there’s steamy romance. Always got to have that!
EJ: If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?
Sophie: Oh, I’m a HUGE fan of Mila Jovovich. I love all her Resident Evil movies. She’s the ultimate kick-ass heroine and just has tremendous presence. She’s really lovely with her exotic looks, too … oh, and it doesn’t hurt that she’s a great actress! I can see her perfectly in the role of any of my heroines.
Night Falls on the Wicked (Moon Chasers #5) by Sharie Kohler
Sharie Kohler returns to the shadowy world of the Moon Chasers, where a seductive witch stalked by demons finds protection in the arms of a lycan on a mission of blood vengeance. . . .
Darby lives her life below the radar, moving from town to town in the coldest climates, eluding the demons that hunt her—and never allowing herself to get close to anyone. Now, in frigid isolation, Darby waits tables in a small town and tries to forget who she is—what she is—and the danger forever nipping at her heels. Until a new danger finds her—a lycan pack whose distant howls have the locals on edge. But the call of the lycans has also drawn a handsome, menacing stranger. . . .
For years, Niklas has searched for the bloodthirsty pack that murdered his mother and infected him. Darby is overwhelmed by his raw appeal and dangerous strength. Niklas senses her need and vulnerability . . . and together they give in to the hungry attraction blazing between them—but desire this fierce brings dangers of its own. When Darby is targeted by the lycans, the stakes are higher than ever—and Niklas is not about to lose another woman he loves to their evil bloodlust.
