1) Tell us about your story
Hollowed: A Tale of Malice is a gender swapped origin story for Maleficent, named Malice in this story. Told from a split perspective to give the reader a deeper understanding of the story you didn’t know you didn’t know. Love, loss, betrayal, and magic are the centralized themes that will have you losing your heart to the Hollows.
2) What inspired you to write it?
I love to read reimagining’s of familiar stories that turn them on their heads in a creative way. Colleen Oak’s retellings were a big inspiration for me while writing Malice’s origin.
3) Do you prefer Villains to Heroes?
Villains are by far my favorite to write, especially when thinking about their origins. Not to mention, everyone know that villains have all the best lines.
4) Is your story a standalone?
Yes, Malice’s story is a standalone that can be read separately from any of the other stories in the anthology and doesn’t connect to any of my other universes currently…
5) What's next for you, writing wise?
Malice’s story kicked off a series of reimagined villain origins for me. I have plans to rewrite the histories of many other villains including Ursula, Cruella De Ville, Jafar, and more. They’ll all appear separately as ebooks and then together later as a paperback collection down the line.
