Here's Aoife Marie Sheridan, here on her book tour with Saskia Book Tours, to introduce us to Abigail, the main character in her new novel, Hunters:
Q: What is the name of your character?
A: The Name of my Character is Abigail Thornton. She’s Nineteen and a Demon Hunter.
Q: Is she fictional or a historic person?
A: Demon Hunter? Fictional I would say. LOL
Q: When and where is the story set?
A: The story is set in our world (Earth). Most of it is set in England and the rest in Rome.
Q: What should we know about her?
A: Well Abigail has no living family, she witnessed the death of her mother, then her father and brother but she was saved by Daniel. Abigail has lots of her own demons but she found a way to deal with them, Alcohol. After being taken in by a priest he teaches her to become a demon hunter, and she’s good at what she does. O did I mention that she can see ghosts. :)
Q: What is the main conflict? What messes up her life?
A: Her feelings for Daniel really cause serious problems; he’s her best friend, her savoir in ways. Yet she won’t let him see how she feels. Abigail’s main fear is of losing one more person that she loves, so she chooses to keep people at arm’s length. Her past comes back to haunt her also, when ghosts start attacking her, and her brother makes an appearance, she can’t cope so she turns to drink but soon everything starts to spiral out of control. So her life is pretty messed up.

Q: When can we expect the book to be published?

Abigail is nineteen. Her job, she hunts demons.
Her life so far has been tough. Having witnessed her family’s death and her mother’s suicide, she’s been taken in by a priest, who believes her when she says that she sees ghosts. Father Peter trains her as a demon hunter with three other members, one being Daniel, who isn’t what he seems.
But when a possession goes wrong, and ghosts start to attack Abigail, the tight rope she has on her emotions soon starts to loosen. Abigail draws the unwanted attention of the Reote, and she finds out a lot more than she was willing to learn.
Knowledge is power, but for Abigail, it’s her undoing, and the only thing keeping her together is Daniel.
Hunters is available at Amazon
About the author:
Aoife Marie Sheridan has loved reading from a very young age. Starting off with Mills and Boon's books, given to by her grandmother, her love for romances grew. By the age of 14 she had read hundreds of them.
Aoife had a passion for writing poetry or in her eyes her journal entries. It was something she did throughout her teens and into her twenties. Aoife won first place for two of her poems and had them published at a young age of just nineteen. Realising she needed to get a real job (What writing isn't) she studied accountancy and qualified working in that field for many years, until her passion for reading returned and she found Maria V Snyder. Poison Study, one of her favourite books, has been read and re-read countless times.
Aoife's first book, Eden Forest (Part one of the Saskia Trilogy), came to be after a dream of a man and woman on a black horse jumping through a wall of fire and the idea of Saskia was born. Now with her first novel published and taking first place for Eden Forest with Writers Got Talent 2013, Aoife continues to write tales of fantasy and is currently working on her third book for the Saskia Trilogy amongst other new works.
