Gin Crawford, the world's newest demon huntress, just wants to enjoy a football game, but finds herself hunting a serial killer minion instead. When his victims turn out to be the local football star’s female fans, she must determine if the player has joined forces with the minion, but her efforts lead her deeper into danger.
When her mentor, Aidan Smythe, is attacked, Gin resolves to go to any lengths to save him, even if it exposes her most tightly held secret. Minions and demons, however, aren't the only terrors she faces. Will she realize the greatest danger lies within—before it's too late?
ANGI: What's your most favorite thing to do in your state?
KARILYN: We moved last year from Texas to Colorado and I've got to admit, there are way more things to do outside here. We love to ski in the winter and hike in the summer.
ANGI: What drinks or snacks are always on your desk when you’re writing?
KARILYN: I like to drink tea or water (usually tea) when I write. No food.
ANGI: Where do you read and how often?
KARILYN: I try to read a book a week, but it doesn't always happen.
ANGI: If you had a superpower, what would it be?
KARILYN: While I wouldn't mind being a fly on a wall for certain conversations, I'd love to be able to move things with my mind. Imagine the possibilities. I could sit on the couch reading a book while the dusting and vacuuming gets done. Wouldn't that be fun?
ANGI: Why a series about a Demon Huntress?
KARILYN: I know you hear this all the time, but the character just appeared in my head one day. I kept seeing a scene where a doctor was shot in the hospital. Originally this was part of another story written years ago (as in the first book I wrote, which is currently hiding inside a box in the closet never again to see the light of day) and I loved the scene but couldn't figure out the rest of the story (or at least the rest of the story someone would want to read. Trust me, no one wants to read that hiding-in-a-box book!). One day I was writing on this funny scene which took place in a hospital and thought, huh, what if I joined the two using the heroine from the funny scene and made the doctor a secondary character? Then the story took off. It turned a dark corner and stumbled into the realm of demons and a woman who hunts them. And the Demon Huntress series was born. It's one part mystery, one part humor, and one part action.
ANGI: What do you like about the heroine of your book?
KARILYN: Gin is snarky and does things I'd never consider doing. But what I like most of all about her is she overcame a lot in her life and keeps on going.
ANGI: What might we find in your heroine's purse?
KARILYN: Her phone and lip balm.
ANGI: What’s your favorite scene from DEMON CURSED?
KARILYN: While there are many scenes I like, the opening lines are my favorite. Here goes:
My stomach slams into a metal railing as surgically enhanced double D’s press into my back. Cheap beer soaks my arm. A not-so-feminine yell shatters my eardrums. For a second, a similar incident during my whiskey-fueled college years flitters in my mind. I shove the memory back into hiding, and return to the present. Quick reflexes stop me from tumbling over the railing to land on the pissed-off crowd below our box seats. Jackie lets loose a string of obscenities directed at the ref on the field below us, but at least she moves her body off mine.
Thank God. Death by double D’s at a football game is not the way I thought I’d go.
ANGI: What do you have coming next?
KARILYN: The fourth book in the series, Devil Take Me, has been contracted and should be out early next year. I'm currently writing the fifth and final book in the series, title unknown. It should also be out next year. Then I have to figure out a new series. J Stay tuned!
