Realm Walker by Kathleen Collins‏


Kathleen Collins has been writing since Kindergarten. And while her ability has drastically improved, her stories are still about monsters and the people who play with them.

The rare instances that she actually finds some spare time, she spends it playing with her two boys. Three if you count her husband.

She is currently hard at work on her next book.

An estranged mate, a mangled body and a powerful demon who calls her by name…

As a Realm Walker for the Agency, Juliana Norris tracks deadly paranormal quarry using her unique ability to see magical signatures. She excels at her job, but her friends worry about her mysterious habit of dying in the line of duty without staying dead. That's only the first of her secrets.

Most people don't know Juliana became the mate of master vampire Thomas Kendrick before he abandoned her seven years ago. Most people don't know the horrors she endured at the hands of the vampire he left in command. Most people don't know her true parentage, or why a demon on a world-threatening rampage has taken a personal interest in her…

Even as Juliana pursues the demon, it goes after all she holds dear—including Thomas, who is back to claim her for his own. But if she can't reconcile her past and learn to trust herself again, she will lose him forever.



Q) What inspired you to write this story? 
A Daughtry song believe it or not. I was listening to a song and a whole scene formed in my head and from that scene came a book which ended up being book two.

Q) How long did it take you to write? 
Including all the various revisions and everything else, two years give or take.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
I love creating worlds. I love making the rules for those worlds. It’s fun to get to decide what a universe will be like.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing? 
Writing is hard. Getting the story down is the easy part, at least for me. Polishing that story and making it better is hard. The business stuff behind the writing is harder. I just want to create.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
I’d be the president for just one day. Though I’m not sure that’s enough time to fix the things that need fixing. And with my luck that would probably be the day someone decided to go nuclear on us.

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it? 
I just cleaned it a couple of weeks ago so probably my salad dressing. It hasn’t expired yet, but it’s close. I’m the only one that eats it so it takes me forever to use it up.

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
Death’s Daughter is book 2 of the Realm Walker series and it comes out March 31, 2014. There are five books and one novella total in the series and they’ll all be out at some point in some format. Also I have a fantasy my agent currently has out on submission. And I’m always working on something new so you never know what will pop up.
