Q) What inspired you to write this story?The inspiration for Hunters came to me, when a friend suggested I go to see a healer. I went and was fascinated by what I learned. Now I can’t say anything amazing happened to me when I was with the healer but I loved his perspective on angels and demons. After that I couldn’t stop thinking about guardian angels, and then the story hunters came to me.
