Author Interview – Keira Michelle Telford

How did you come up with the title? I was listening to a lot of music by a band called Kamelot while I was writing the book. One of the songs on their Ghost Opera album inspired it.

Can you tell us about your main character? Ella ‘Silver’ Cross is tough. She wouldn’t be caught dead in dresses or high-heels, and she knows way more about guns and ammo than she does about lipstick and eyeliner. She’s ballsy, and even though her fearlessness can be an asset to her work in the Hunter Division, it often makes her reckless.

Is there a message in your novel that you want readers to grasp? Ultimately, it’s a love story. The world might end, but love endures.

How much of the book is realistic? I’ve tried to handle everything in the most realistic (often graphic) way possible. From the love between the two main characters, to the gory killing scenes.

Have you included a lot of your life experiences, even friends, in the plot? I use people’s names a lot, usually much to the chagrin of my friends, who randomly find bits of themselves scattered throughout the pages. And a few of the things that Silver says and does are reminiscent of myself. Except for all the monster killing. I haven’t done much of that in real life.
