Holly Evans is one of the first writers I ever met on Twitter nearly a year ago. Her quick wit, kindness, passion for music and love of the supernatural are just a few of the traits I love most about her. When we first met, she wasn’t even done writing her series, but her dream of being a successful author was just as strong.
Now, the first book of the Infernal Hunt series, a novella called Infernal Ties, will release tomorrow on Amazon for just 0.99. A week later, Infernal Bonds will be released. I lined up an interview with her months ago and am elated to finally present this exclusive conversation with Holly about her love for mythology, her choice of indie publishing and the apocalypse.

I feel the potential in myself every time I walk the streets. I see who I want to be and feel encouraged to strive toward that person. So this spring, after my visa in Italy expires, I will be returning to my home turf and pursuing my career in web design. It will take a lot of hard work and budgeting, but it can be done and boy, am I ready for the spring.
New York, I’m coming home.
