Author interview with Melanie Karsak, Author of Witch Wood Author Interview:
1.What’s your favorite witch movie or novel? I like my witches a little old fashioned. I would start with The Mists of Avalon by Marion Zimmer Bradley to see the roots of the modern pagan movement. In terms of movies, I would definitely avoid seeing “ The Blair Witch Project” again because I totally puked my guts out midway through that cult classic, but I like something light like “ Practical Magic” as well.
2.What was the inspiration for your witch novella? The Harvesting Series is a genre mashup. It begins like a classic zombie horror story then the series begins to slowly reveal that there are other supernatural forces in our world…vampires, fey shifters, and so on. These dark forces have been trying to exterminate us for eons, and they finally discovered a way by causing a virus that turned mankind into zombies. Along the way, some people with special powers emerge…a medium, a tarot reader, and in this novella, a white witch named Amelia. Mankind is about to make their last stand, and they are going to need Amelia’ s help.
3.Tell us about your main character: white witch, dark witch, or something in-between? Amelia is a Wiccan, a white witch. She’ s someone who has a special gift. She can see, and heal,people’ s energy, their auras. She’ s also not bad at casting spells and doing herb work. Her special talents have always set her on the outskirts in the past, but that’ s about to change.
4.Cast your characters. If your novella was made into a movie, who would play your main characters? For fun, check out the image graphic I made!
5.Do you believe in magic? Yes, I do. I do believe people have the ability to use energy to influence their environments in positive or negative ways.
6.What else should we know about your novella? This novella is a tie-in for my larger series, but it hold its own as a stand-alone. We will see Amelia face the early days of the outbreak and how she and her friends handle that situation.
