Here is my interview with Alexander Wallis

This interview is reblogged from authorinterviews blog.

I saw on Twitter that the book is currently free on Amazon in both the UK and US this weekend, I downloaded it and have started it, I’m 20% through and it seems fairly good.

Whilst looking for reviews I came across this author interview with Alexander Wallis the author of The Way Knight and thought I would share it with you all in case the book interests any of you.


Book Blurb:

THE WAY KNIGHT is the terrifying tale of a girl’s journey from child, to woman, to goddess. It is a provocative story that will challenge everything you believe.

Daimonia is a wild and impulsive girl, who fears she is unlovable. When corrupt politicians execute her brother, she travels to find her mother — the famous hero who abandoned her years before.

To survive the treacherous journey, she hires the Way Knight — a travelling warrior sworn to protect anyone who pays his fee, no matter how dangerous the journey, or hopeless their cause.

Together they will chance the battle-torn coast, pursued by the champion of the Secret God.


Name Alexander Wallis

Age 46

Where are you from

I work with young people with behavioural or learning difficulties, helping them to develop socially and emotionally. I studied at the University of Chichester and currently work in Portsmouth. I use drama, creative writing and group work to engage students and help them to see themselves and the world from different perspectives.

Fiona: Tell us your latest news?

I was recently a winner in the ‘Write Across Sussex’ short story competition presented by novelist Kate Mosse.

My story followed a young woman struggling with a cruel, withholding mother. Working within social care, I had sometimes encountered Narcissistic parenting styles leading to attachment disorders. This is a theme that deserves more attention because the abuse is often covert, hard for professionals to pick up on and recognize.

An Interview with Peter Newman

Reblogged this from thathornguy’s blog as I found it to be a really good interview with a quality author, I really enjoyed reading The Vagrant last year and have been lucky enough to have received a copy of The Malice to review, which I hope to start reading soon. 🙂

PeterNewmanPhotoYour debut novel, The Vagrant, came out last year and received much praise within the SFF community. Mark also loved it and said it was the best thing he’d read in quite a while. So while preparing for this interview I was astonished to find out that despite starting to write in your early twenties you stopped for almost ten years following criticism you received from friends. As someone who also writes and critiques I have some understanding of both the importance of giving/receiving feedback and of the havoc it can have on someone’s self-confidence. Even gentle criticism can come as a big blow sometimes, but to think that whatever you’d been told led to you putting it aside for such a long time is terrible.  How did you eventually find your way back into writing? (And may I say we are all glad that you did!)
