- How did you come up with the title My Demonic Ghost?
You might be interested to know that originally it was going to be called My Demonic God as it was about the idea of a corrupted god controlling us. But as I ventured further into the story and figured out that my focus was not on a god but on a ghost, I decided to change the word God to Ghost instead. The Demonic part in the title was included because of the fact the spirits and demons of this book are labelled as evil, that they are the offspring of sin and impurity. I used the word ‘My’ for the Host’s part in the story, that she feels a sense of possession to the demon spirit that clings to her.
- What was one of the most surprising things you learned in creating your books?
How little control an author can have of their characters. I love to have guidelines to help me stay on course, but once a character steps into the scene anything could happen. So many times I try to tell them something, try to push them in a certain direction but if they don’t want to it’s not going to happen. It can be very, very frustrating at times. But, when you write a scene and the characters flow naturally it’s worth the trouble.
