The Making of Michael Bishop‏ 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.

Keep your distance. Don't look him in the eye. Feed him and leave.

Michael D'Augustino is a priest in the time of the Inquisition. Marked as weak for his refusal to torture those charged with sorcery, heresy, devil worship or worse, he's given another task. Feed the prisoner in the cell in the darkest corner of the dungeon. With the edict comes a set of instructions.

Ever obedient, Michael does exactly as he is told. Until the night his charge doesn't eat and Michael has to enter the cell to find out why. Instead of the beast he believes to be imprisoned there, he finds a man. A broken, tormented man who asks for help.

But all is not as it seems and, before the night is through, Michael will be changed forever.

Q) What inspired you to write this story?
I’ve always had Michael’s origin story kind of in the back of my head while I was writing him. I just thought it would be fun to share with my readers. And also that it would be a good introduction to the Realm Walker world for those not already familiar with it.

Q) How long did it take you to write?
A couple of months.

Q) What is your favorite thing about writing?
The ability to bring to life all the crazy things I imagine in my head and getting to share it with other people.

Q) What is your least favorite thing about writing?
That I can’t write nearly fast enough to keep up with all the ideas in my head.

Q) If you could be any famous person for one day, who would you be and why?
Someone with a lot of money so I could divert it to my bank account. Is that wrong?

Q) What is the oldest thing in your fridge and how old is it?
I have no idea. I keep it pretty cleaned out.

Q) What can readers expect from you in the future?
The next release will be Blood Slave which is the third book in the Realm Walker series. I also have a novella, another short story and two more books planned in the series after that.
