Rise of the Demons Blog Tour: Author Interview

Can you tell us a little about yourself and how you got into writing?

I've piddled around with writing most of my life. When I was young I wrote mostly poetry and songs, but as I grew older I'd write little one page stories just to pass the time. A few years ago I finally allowed someone to read one of those short stories and she goaded me into writing a novel. That book became Birthright (The first in my Dark Gifts series). I'm so very glad she pushed me. I doubt I would have ever even attempted it without that push.

Can you tell us a little about your book , Oceans of red: Volume 1?

Oceans of Red has been an ongoing project of mine for the last two years. I'm a huge fan of YA dystopians. (I'm also a big 2012 buff.) I actually got the idea for Oceans after watching a few youtube videos about the Hopi Indian Prophecies. They set my mind to wandering and we ended up in a series.

Oceans of Red is set in the future but not that far, 2015, why did you choose this year to set it in and not further in the future?

I wanted to show how quickly the world as we know it could change without natural disasters and wars. Three years in the future seemed just far enough away to make you wonder-- what if?

Describe your main protagonist Remy in less than 140 characters?

Remy is an old soul with an over exaggerated sense of justice and retribution. Her #1 priority is family.

How many volumes can we expect in the series?
There will be one more to finish off the Oceans of Red mini-series, but a corresponding full-length novel is in the planning stages. As of right now, I do not have a title for it.

Why should we read Oceans of Red in one sentence?
It's not your ordinary end-of-the-world story. ;)
About the author:

Willow Cross resides in Arkansas with her husband, two children still young enough to live at home, an enormous cat named Bitsy, and a neurotic dog named Tank. Her home has been known to host the occasional ghost and several of her friends profess to be witches. Although she dearly loves Vampires and Werewolves, they are never invited for dinner

By 2015 the streets of Los Angeles have been transformed from a thriving metropolis to a hostile world ravaged by demons bent on assimilating the human race. Standing between this total apocalypse of humanity and their chance for survival is 19 year old Remy Martin.

A warrior in her own right, trained to think on her feet and kill if the situation requires, she is flanked by her older brother and younger sister. Together, they devise a plan to take back the streets.  Against the wishes of their father, who commands the resistance forces, they venture into unknown realms of the supernatural in a race against time with the fate of the entire world in their young hands.

Join them on their mission into darkness where death lies around every corner, it is virtually impossible to distinguish your enemies from your allies, and a single mistake could result in the annihilation of everyone you've ever known and loved.
