The Belu Eloko – Biloko

In my urban fantasy trilogy, there are five kinds of demons – lilins, kappas, elokos, noxes, and athtars. Per the demonic myths, there are five so-called “original” demons, called belus, who were banished by God to the Underworld. The belu eloko, Biloko, was taken from the present-day Democratic Republic of […]

The Belu Lilin: Freyja

In my urban fantasy trilogy, “belu” is the ancient word for “original demon.” So the belu lilin, Freyja, was the very first lilin ever created. To celebrate the last book in the trilogy coming out, I thought I’d write a little more about each belu’s origins.

Freyja, the Myth

Freyja comes from […]

Cam and the Realization

It was pretty clear to me when writing the first Demon Spring book that Cam would be the stand-out character. She’s got threads of Lizbeth Carter from Razia–the long-suffering best friend who pushes the protagonist to be more than he/she is. But as I got into writing the second Demon […]

Writing Romance After Loss

The Demon Spring trilogy has a few different themes that I had fun playing with. There’s Anya’s abuse-victim-breaking-free storyline. Cam’s push to get her best friend to become more than he is. And Jack’s slow reclamation of the new man he is after his wife’s death. For he and Anya, […]

Anya’s Motivations: Why She Stayed

When writing a book, I like to take real situations and give them a fantasy twist to explore them. For example, in Empath I used a giant fire-breathing dragon to dive deep into anxiety and mental health. In my new urban fantasy trilogy, Demon Spring, I wanted to write a […]

Writing Timelines and Outputs

Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about time management. Namely, am I spending time and energy on the things that are bringing me money. As a freelancer, this question is vitally important, because if I don’t spend my time on the things that make me money, I will have no […]

About the Character – Bael, King of the Underworld

In my forthcoming Urban Fantasy, Demon Spring, the characters are worried that the King of the Underworld will make an appearance. Although “they say that every four years,” there’s reason to be worried if it’s true. Bael is the original athtar demon, or a demon who can manipulate time […]

Guest Post with Suzanna Linton

Today, friend of the blog, Suzanna Linton is here to talk about stepping away!


The Importance of Stepping Away

When I was growing up, my mother coated our Christmas trees with tinsel. This is not an exaggeration. Streams of silver drowned the blinking lights and glittering ornaments. Months after consigning […]
