Claire C. Riley gave us a chance to probe her ideas of magic as she believes and as she presents in Twisted Magic another tale in The Witching Hour Collection.
Author interview with Claire C. Riley, author of Twisted Magic
Q1. What’s your favourite witch movie or novel?
It has to be either The Witches of Eastwick or Hocus Pocus. And yes, I know how completely different those two films are, but they are both classics to me, and I watch them every year.
Q2. What was your inspiration for your witch novella?
I’m a huge fan of Romeo & Juliet, the whole ‘love that cannot be’ thing really grips me, and so with this in mind I tried to twist the story on its head and incorporate it into a more modern setting. And of course include witches haha
Q3. Cast your characters. If your novella were made into a movie, who would play your main characters?
I imagined someone like Clare Danes to play Sarah, but that could be because I had the whole Romeo and Juliet thing in my head. For Peter I definitely saw someone like Kit Harrington :0)
Q4. Do you believe in magic?
In short, yes.
Q5. What else should we know about your novella?
If you like dark romances and tortured heroes, then this is for you.
