Not too long ago, I met with a friend for coffee, and while I was talking with her, I described how I’d once experienced a thunderstorm from high in the mountains, and how the storm felt like something alive and moving just outside.
That idea crystalized together with one about a young woman living in a deeply haunted house.
Why would anyone choose to live there?
And the answer came to me–Because she had nowhere else to go.
The woman’s name was all I knew at first – Sarah Kincaid. From there, the story grew and grew, and by the time it finished, I realized I’d opened the door to a world I wanted to explore more. Soulbreaker was done, but Sarah’s adventures were just opening up. It also felt good to explore the world from the point of view of someone who’s had it much worse, and yet still sees the world with hope and optimism.
One way or another, I’m going to introduce the world to Sarah, a young woman whose touch destroys the dead–and drives her insane in the process.
Death is not the end. Sarah Kincaid is.
