Q+A with Nikki Jefford

EJ:  When did you begin writing?

The moment I could hold a pen. My stories got more interesting after I learned the alphabet.

EJ:  What brought you to the paranormal genre?

Early on it was the love of magic in fiction: Diana Wynne Jones (Howl’s Moving Castle) and Roald Dahl (Matilda). Movies and TV shows were a big inspiration. I used to think my daydreams were too outlandish to put into books. Then I watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer and other Joss Whedon creations and realized anything was possible.

EJ:  If you could be any paranormal or have any one supernatural talent, what would it be? Why?

  I have always wanted to teleport. Above all else, I value my time with family and friends. What an amazing thing if I could see them whenever I wanted.

EJ:  Tell us why readers will enjoy your new release.

  First of all, they have to like dark, slightly morbid humor. If that’s your bag, welcome to the world of Aurora Sky!

EJ:  If your book(s) were being made into a movie, who would you cast for the leading roles? Why?

  In the spirit of indie hood, I actually think it would be cool to cast never-before-seen talent. This is the first time my Aurora Sky cover model posed for book covers and I think that is so cool. It’s not like, “Oh, there’s so-and-so.” She’s Aurora Sky, that’s all there is to it. That’s how I feel about actors and actresses. I love seeing someone really good for the first time during that initial stage where they are the character.

Bad Blood (Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter #3) by Nikki Jefford.

Aurora returns from boot camp to a new assignment, an unwelcome roommate, and the increasingly amorous attentions of a certain vampire hunter.

College is starting, and so is Aurora’s undercover work at a network of swanky parties known as “Tastings” for high rolling vampires who like their blood laced with fine wine. But Aurora’s not the only one on the prowl. An underground investigation is under way to find out who killed one of Anchorage’s most prominent vampires… and Aurora is a prime suspect.

Release Date: June 2, 2014
